Rome, Ga. - On Thursday, May 21, 2009, Shorter College Athletics will host the 1st Annual Shorter Shootout Classic at Barnsley Gardens. This one-of-a-kind event features a sporting clays and golf tournament, with proceeds benefiting the athletic department.

The event will kick-off with registration at 8 a.m., followed by the beginning of the sporting clays event at 9 a.m. A lunch will be served at Barnsley at noon, and the four-man scramble shotgun golf start will be at 1:30 p.m. The cost for each event is $600 per foursome for both clays and golf.

The Shorter College Athletic Department continues to make its mark in the Southeast and throughout the nation, as their teams, coaches and staff finished their best year ever in 2008. A national champion, national rankings, All-Americans, conference championships and dozens of post-season honors--Shorter's teams, student-athletes and coaches can look back and know that calendar year has put the college among the elite athletic programs in the NAIA.

As the athletic programs continue to flourish, this tournament will serve as a yearly fundraiser to help offset operation costs and assist in the continuation of Shorter athletics competing at a level of excellence.

At this time, Shorter is seeking sponsorships and foursomes to compete in the tournaments. For a brochure detailing the event and sponsorship opportunities, click here. For more information, or to sign up, please contact Rachel Rogers at 706-233-7641 or
