Navigator Club

2017 HRA Golf Classic

The HRA Navigator Club sponsored the 2017 HRA Golf Classic, in memory of Svein Lassen, on Monday, October 2, 2017 at the Williamsburg Golf Club. The weather was picture perfect and the golfers enjoyed playing on a beautiful golf course. The tournament brought together current HRA parents, HRA alumni and several businesses who all helped to support and enhance the Academy's athletic program through their participation. Proceeds exceeded $24,000 and will go toward the purchase of additional outdoor seating on the HRA athletic fields. A special thank you goes to our Sponsors and Donors who made it possible.

The competition was tough, but three teams took the top spots:

First place:
The Bay Disposal Team led by Skeeter Heath with Charley Bocklett, Chris Malone and Mike Stephans.

Second Place:
The Lockwood's Carpets
Team with Scott Glaze, Herbie Riviere, Jerry Morgan and Joseph Evans.

Third Place:
The Magnolia Lane Capital team led by Lars Lassen `97 with Nick Biesecker, Mike Ponton and Shannon Sealey.

Many thanks go to the Navigator Club parent volunteers, especially Tournament Chair Tasha Young Rose `98 and Navigator Club President Shawen Kane Bartol `85. The volunteers included Heather Short, Tony Reed, Darla Revere, Ginger James, Kathleen Mauk and Sheila Gessner.

Navigator Club

The Navigator club was formed to support and encourage athletic competition by all HRA students. Funds raised through concessions stand sales and other event/projects are distributed by the Club to fund programs and/or purchase additional equipment not provided for in the Academy’s operating budget.

All families are encouraged to join the Navigator Club. Your $75.00 family membership not only supports the athletic program, but also entitles all family members to free admission to all regular season home athletic events.
