The Slusher Scramble was held Sept. 17, at the Highlands Golf Club in Franklin.
The winners were Team Thompson of Franklin heritage. They were followed closely by Team (Dr. Elmer) Kennel as number two in the tiebreaker and Team Harrisonburg OBGYN as number three.
Despite the rain, the day was a wonderful success, with 21 teams finishing with great attitudes.
The proceeds of this tournament fund the annual Leo Slusher Award, which benefits a Pendleton County High School senior. Seniors can apply for this award in the spring, which spotlights community service and athletic support, either as a player, manager, or coach. Leo Slusher put his heart into the athletic program of PCHS and the former Franklin High School. He was a strong servant to the Pendleton County community, including being a charter member of the Treasure Mountain Festival committee. This award was established to celebrate youth who demonstrate those qualities during their high school years and help them achieve their future goals.
