KINGMAN – The Bighorn Athletics Booster Club announced its first fundraiser, the Bighorn Scramble, to help raise money for the tristate region’s first-ever National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) men’s and women’s soccer teams.
According to a news release from MCC, the college board and NJCAA recently approved MCC plans to create the teams, and recruitment will focus first on players from throughout Mohave County.
The Bighorn Scramble is a Calcutta/Golf Tournament set for Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4. The weekend begins at the Anderson Fieldhouse at 3663 Bullhead Pkwy in Bullhead City, Friday evening at 5:30 p.m. with the Calcutta, which is open to sponsors and players.
The charity golf tournament is scheduled for 7:30 a.m., Saturday morning at Laughlin Ranch Golf Course at 1360 William Hardy Drive in Bullhead City. There will be three people on each team, and community members are encouraged to act quickly if they would like to play in the tournament due to limited spaces.
“This is exciting news for all of Mohave County,” Bighorn Booster Club Vice President Steve Moss said. “We can now keep our local youth in the community. After they graduate from high school, they can now play a sport they love while completing a college degree.”
The Bighorn Booster Club was created to support MCC collegiate athletics and the student athletes. The college’s goal is to have the athletic program be financially self-supporting, and the Bighorn Booster Club is a key part of the plan to help make that happen.
“I am so impressed with the commitment and support we’re seeing by the boosters and so many of our local business, government and industry leaders,” MCC President Dr. Stacy Klippenstein said. “This Bighorn Scramble charity golf tournament is such a great way for our local community members to get involved and show support for the soccer program we’re building.”
Some sponsorship packages for the tournament are still available and range in price from $500 to $5,000.
