Doherty Cup results

The Town of Wallingford
The popular medal play tournament drew players from far and wide (RI and Florida!). They came together to honor the memory of David J. Doherty, a popular Sheehan High School teacher and Wallingford town councilman, who died suddenly in June 1997. His Sheehan High School peers established the David J. Doherty Scholarship Fund, and his family, created the championship as the scholarship’s fundraiser.
Each year the golfing event has raised approximately $7,000, helping to perpetuate the scholarship fund along with awarding two $2,500 scholarships each year.
This year’s official “Doherty Cup” winners are:

Women’s Champion – Elaine Doherty -100
