Thank you to our generous sponsors, supporters, players and guests who made the 2019 Connolly Classic Golf Tournament such a success.  Through your generosity, we funded $50,000 in scholarships for O'Connell students.  

Congratulations to the overall tournament winners for 2019, Bill Crenshaw ’71, Steve Crenshaw, Terry Koerner and Al Steele. 

Taking the prize for the Syd Albrittain Memorial Alumni Cup were Matt Dwyer '89, Jonathan Dwyer '93, Dennis Dwyer '61 and John Milligan '89. 

Rounding out the contests were Mike Grabowski '21 with Closest to the Pin (Men’s), Jillian Holland with Closest to the Pin (Women), Steve Barto with Longest Drive (Men) and Longest Drive (Women) went to Patrice Connolly.  Winner of the special ice breaker contest “the MEGA PUTT” was John Bare.

Thank you to our special guest, NFL Pro Bowler and DJO alumnus, Eric Metcalf '85, who returned to O'Connell for the 31st annual Connolly Classic golf tournament last May.
