A team of Vermont Tech engineering students placed first at the annual Vermont Society of Engineers’ (VSE) golf tournament, held September 24, 2021 at the Stowe Country Club in Stowe, Vermont.
The Green Knight team, comprising Quinn Munns (of Jericho, VT), Thomas Ferguson (of Deering, NH), Ronnie Corey (of South Burlington, VT), and Michael Ranaldo (of Burlington, VT), outscored other university engineering student teams in a scramble format, reclaiming the rotating trophy that goes to the winning institution each year and that spent its last year in Norwich University’s possession. Munns and Corey also played last year.
The tournament is a fundraiser for the VSE and most of the golfers were practicing engineers; the funds raised go toward student scholarships. For many years now, the VSE has invited the three engineering academic institutions in Vermont (Vermont Tech, Norwich University, and the University of Vermont) that receive the scholarships to enter a student team.
The trophy will soon be placed on display at the Campus Center on the Randolph Center campus, along with engraved plates showing the names of past winning teams.
“The students have fun and network with professionals at this event. We appreciate how the VSE invites students who will be the engineers of the future,” said Professor Scott A. Sabol, P.E., who coordinates the Vermont Tech team. Sabol will be looking to recruit four engineering students to play in the tournament when next autumn rolls around again.
