DGA is happy to announce that the winners have been selected for its first annual Collegiate Clash National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships Fundraiser program. This first year was unique because there were actually two ties in the points race for the scholarships. The first tie was between the top two schools for first place, and then there was another tie for the third place scholarship.
DGA combined the first and second place prizes and divided them equally between the two first place schools. So with that said, DGA is proud to award the California State University Monterey Bay Otters and the Oregon State University Beavers each with a $1,500 scholarship. University of Santa Barbara and North Carolina State tied for third place and earned themselves a cool $250 each.
For those of you not familiar with the program, the Collegiate Clash is an opportunity for collegiate disc golf clubs to purchase custom stamped discs that feature each university’s logo in the middle of the iconic National Collegiate Championship ring. The schools’ disc golf teams earn points for the discs that they purchase and use those points to buy DGA baskets or save the points to try and win the grand prize of a $2,000 first place scholarship for top point earnings. Second place receives a $1,000 scholarship, and 3rd place earns a $500 scholarship.
All scholarship money will be used to help the teams cover expenses associated with traveling to the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships. This is the first year that DGA offered its Collegiate Clash program and is honored to help all schools involved with their fundraising efforts, knowing that the money earned will go directly back into each school’s disc golf program. Stay tuned for the next Collegiate Clash Fundraiser program that will begin in late summer 2013, and please contact DGA if you think you or a local university is interested in taking advantage of the program.
DGA is a proud sponsor of collegiate disc golf and wishes all competing schools the best of luck this year at the 2013 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships!
