Golf: 11th Sixkiller classic raises $101K for foundation

The Sequim Health and Rehabilitation team of Michael Littman, Sid Krumpe, Mark Mitrovich, Chris Rose and Husky Legend/former Husky basketball star John Buller beat 39 other teams to win the 11th Sonny Sixkiller UW Husky Celebrity Golf Classic on July 29.

Presented by Wilder Auto Center and held at The Cedars at Dungeness golf course in Sequim, the event raised a record net $101,000 for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation — the tournament’s beneficiary and the organizer of the tournament along with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and The Cedars at Dungeness.

Each of the 40 foursomes in the tournament were joined by a UW Husky celebrity. Former Husky great Sonny Sixkiller, who led college football in passing in 1971, recruited all of the celebrities — including Husky and NFL great Lincoln Kennedy.

Also playing were three former University of Washington stars who graduated from Sequim and Port Angeles High School. A 1984 graduate of PA High, Scott Jones is the only Roughrider to play in the NFL. Former Rider Matt Lane was the starting catcher for the Huskies from 2004-2006, while Sequim High grad Derrin Doty starred for the Husky baseball team from 1990-1993.
