Golf tourney named for legendary Coach Armstrong raises $15K

The annual Coach Armstrong Memorial Golf Tournament was held Aug. 10 at the Snohomish Public Golf Course and raised $15,275 for the Snohomish Education Foundation.

Dick Armstrong, who died in 1999, was the head football coach at Snohomish High School from 1963 to 1994. He compiled the most wins of any high school football coach in state history. He also taught biology and physical education.

The Foundation also administers the Coach Armstrong Memorial Scholarship program, which awards two $1,000 scholarships. The awards are renewable, meaning the program each year funds as much as $8,000 in college tuition for local graduates.

Speakers at the golf tournament included Armstrong Scholarship winner Katie Branvold and Keith Gilbertson, SHS class of 1966, who is a former University of Washington football head coach and Seattle Seahawks assistant coach.

Tournament winners were foursome Fritz Schott, Tom Sursley, Kyle Schott and Chuck Sursley. Longest drive winners were Joe Osterholtz and Sandy Songstad. Closest-to-the-Pin victors were Merle Kirkley and Lisa Jones.
