NCHS Football Hosts a Golf Fundraiser

The NCHS Football team held a Golf Scramble fundraiser Saturday, July 8 at the Northwestern Hills Golf Course. Eighteen teams of four golfers set out for a fun day of competition. Some of the holes had some creative interpretations of golfing rules, including one at which the golfer could choose to use a baseball bat in lieu of a golf club, a surprisingly effective way to get the ball to the green. The golfers enjoyed a jambalaya lunch after their 18 holes.

The scramble was fun for a good cause. The 128 young men of Chief football have been hard at work under veteran coach Jess Curtis. Coach Curtis is in his first year at the helm of the Chiefs after a legendary tenure at Many High School. The money raised will be used in defraying some of the program’s expenses such as uniforms and food on the road.

The NCHS Chief will make their first home appearance on the gridiron September 8 as they face off against the Opelousas Tigers. The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes for a safe and victorious season. Go Chiefs!
