APPLETON, Wis. -- The Vikings Athletics Golf Outing has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event was set for June 19 at Chaska Golf Course in Appleton. 

"It is with great disappointment that we have called off the Vikings Athletics Golf Outing," Assistant to the President and Director of Athletics Christyn Abaray said. "Our coaches and staff look forward to connecting with former student-athletes and friends each year, but we are proceeding with caution during these unprecedented times. We look forward to seeing everyone for this event in 2021."

The Vikings Athletics Golf Outing has been a staple of Lawrence's Department of Athletics for decades. The event has been a source of camaraderie and fellowship for Lawrence alums and friends, and funds raised from the event have served to aid the Department of Athletics in a myriad of ways.

"I want to thank Mike Szkodzinski, Andrew Borresen '15 and Jamie Reeve '95, who lead our efforts to put on our event for their relentless dedication," Abaray said.

The event will return in June 2021.
