The 4th ann-
ual B.F. Killingsworth Gator Golf Classic was held Monday, May 19 at the Madison Golf and Country Club. The proceeds from this event go to the Madison County Gator Club Scholarship Fund.
There was total of 18 teams signed up to play and each team had four members. There were two tee times for the tournament at 9 a.m., and 1 p.m. All players were served a delicious lunch.
Lindsay Norfleet Fico was a recipient of the scholarships from the Madison County Gator Club Scholarship Fund in 2002. She has since graduated from the University of Florida. She has been coming back to Madison to play in the event for the past few years.
“The fact that B.F. Killingworth’s legacy is continued with the tournament is an accurate portrayal of what he did for the community and students,” said Fico. “I feel that it is appropriate that I come back and contribute to other students scholarships.”
She had a partial athletic scholarship for University of Florida but the scholarship she received in 2002 was beneficial because she could use the money for books, fees and filling her pantry.
The B.F. Killingsworth Golf Classic raised $4,600 for the Madison County Gator Club Scholarship Fund.
