La Roche College Scott Lang Memorial Golf Classic
Over the past two decades, proceeds
from the event have enabled the College to upgrade facilities, add sports
programs and purchase much-needed athletic equipment. Your support also has
given our student athletes, both women and men, the opportunity to learn the
value of teamwork, dedication and perseverance.

in 2004. Coach Lang was an inspiring figure in the locker room, on the court
