Excellent condition Gregory said he was happy for the victory. “The tournament was well organised, well ran and the course was in excellent condition,” said Gregory. “My daughter qualified this year for the National Junior Caribbean Championships and today was just testimony to the hard work that she has been putting in,” he said. On the other hand, 12-year-old Emily, who is a student at Campion, was very elated with her performance. “A lot of work was put in and, as my dad said, we worked together most of the time and he helped me to line up most of my putts and so I am very happy that we won,” Emily said. Meanwhile, Alveta Knight, president of the Campion College Home School Association, said this year’s event was a success. “The tournament was a success as we had a good turnout. Those who couldn’t come sent in sponsorship funds and so it was a good event,” said Knight. She added that the aim of the tournament was to raise over a million dollars to help with the needs of the school’s development fund, as well as any other social needs that may arise during the year. “I love the tournament because this particular fundraiser pulls together past and present and future Campionites and it allows them to really gel together,” said Knight. Meanwhile, the top Campionites team was Gordon Munn and Jodi Munn with a score 61, while the top adult and junior combination were Michelle Gabay and Michael Lowe with a score of 70. The father and daughter combination of Gregory Mayne and Emily Mayne emerged overall champions of the Campion College Home School Association Charity Golf tournament at the Constant Golf Club yesterday. The duo shot a 61 net to win the tournament ahead of Edjan Wiggins and Clive Chambers combination, who also shot a 61 net. However, Gregory and Emily came out on top after they shot a 31 on the back nine, compared to Wiggans and Chambers’ score of 32 on the back nine.
