McGuinness golfers raise money for babies
The Bishop McGuinness girls golf team’s pursuit of a state championship had a philanthropic benefit, too.
On Friday, the Class 4A state champs presented a $5,000 check to Birth Choice of Oklahoma, which supports women in crisis pregnancies.
The money was raised through the team’s service project, “Birdies for Babies.” The players sought out pledges from members of the community of $1 for every birdie they made in a tournament this season to raise the funds.
“The $5,000 result is the culmination of the hard work our girls put in this year as student-athletes at Bishop McGuinness,” coach Todd Farris said. “It truly is the accomplishment we are most proud of this year.”
The Irish won the Class 4A team championship, and freshman Caitlin Farris was the individual state champ.
