State Champion Lemont Baseball Program to Benefit from Golf Fundraiser

Proceeds from the August 16 outing will go to the program.

Fresh off of winning the 2014 IHSA Class 3A State Championship, Lemont High School’s baseball program will host a golf outing and accompanying dinner with silent auction and raffles on Saturday, August 16, at Gleneagles Country Club in Lemont. The event will serve as a fundraiser for head coach Brian Storako’s program.

Registration will begin at 11 a.m. on August 16, and rounds of golf will tee off at noon and follow a scramble format. Contests will be held throughout the day, including ‘Closest to the Pin’ and ‘Longest Drive’ competitions. The dinner, silent auction and raffles will begin at 4 p.m.

A $125 ticket will provide an individual golfer with a round of golf, cart, lunch on the course, and dinner. Foursomes are $500, and ‘dinner only’ tickets are $40. Supporters of the Lemont High School baseball program do not have to participate in the golf outing in order to attend the dinner and auction.

Gleneagles Country Club is located at 13070 McCarthy Rd. in Lemont.

Lemont went 35-5 in 2014, setting a school single-season record for wins on the way to the school’s first team state championship in a boys’ sport. The Indians won their sixth straight South Suburban Conference title, and also captured their first-ever IHSA Sectional and IHSA Super-Sectional crowns during their postseason run.

Seniors Jake Latz, Mike Papierski and Mike Wisz all earned Illinois High School Baseball Coaches Association Class 3A All-State accolades. Latz (11th round) and Papierski (16th round) each were selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2014 Major League Baseball draft, while Wisz earned SSC Player of the Year honors. Illinois Prep Baseball Report rated Lemont as the state’s top team in its final 2014 rankings, and also tabbed Latz as the state’s “Player of the Year.”
