Kevin Normington, the highly heralded and much beloved Bonita High School football player killed in a tragic car accident a little more than two years ago, keeps on giving. The first Kevin Normington Memorial scramble tournament at Marshall Canyon Golf Course in La Verne on April 30 raised $6,500 for Bonita High scholarships and athletics at the school.

More than 70 players and friends of the family turned out to play golf and support the player and his family.

Kevin, a superb athlete, would have appreciated the fine scores turned in. The team of Doug Pye, Chino Hills; Tom Murphy, Upland; Bill Walls, La Verne; and Ken Murray, Jr., La Verne, registered a 19-under-par 52 to walk off with first place.

Finishing second with a score of 58 was the team of Tom Hester, Santa Barbara; Mike Hester, Redondo Beach; Mark Lopez, Glendora; and Tim Larkin, La Verne.

Tied for third at 12 under 59 were Kevin Evans, Tom Reed, Ron Seiker, and Bob Lambenton, and the team of Tony and Greg Eliaz, Ken Wenzl, and Richard Serrano.

John Normington, Kevin’s father and the tournament director, told Phil Roche, longtime golf reporter for the Daily Bulletin: “I was very pleased with the fine turnout. Now, we’re looking forward to awarding the scholarships in late May.”
