    The Tournament was created as a memorial and named to honor Springfield Golf and Country Club’s first head golf professional, Bobby Bowers. Bobby was well known throughout the Washington DC area for his work with junior golfers until his untimely death due to cancer in 1974. This championship is recognized as a major national event in junior golf competition due to the unique format of both stroke and match play.

    In the early 2000s Jessie Yopp was dominant on the local racing scene. In fact, an argument could be made that he was the best.
        

    Yopp’s journey began in the mid-1990’s when he met, his now wife, Rebecca. Rebecca’s father was a racecar driver and she grew up in the sport, which lit a flame under Jessie.

    The Liberty Minutemen begin a new era of athletics on August 21. The Lady Minutemen volleyball team hosts Staunton River in what will be the first athletic event held in Liberty’s brand new gym.
        

    Construction on the project began during the third week of May 2017 and will officially be complete by the start of the Fall season. A, near, year and a half wait could certainly feel rather long, but it was definitely worth it.
