• ELLENSBURG, Wash. — Registration is taking place now for golfers wanting to participate in the tenth annual Jon Kitna Wildcat Classic, presented by Wells Fargo Advisors. It is the largest annual fundraiser for athletic scholarships at Central Washington University. This year’s tournament will be held Thursday, July 12, at Suncadia in Cle Elum.

The four-person scramble is a gross tournament, which means there are no handicaps. Golfers can choose one of three divisions: Open, for any player; Alumni, where at least three members of a foursome must be CWU alumni; and Senior, where a minimum of three players on a foursome must be at least 55 years old.
Registration will begin at 11 a.m. on the morning of the event, followed by the shotgun start at 1:30 p.m. This is the first time that golfers in the Wildcat Classic will have the chance to play simultaneously on both the Prospector and Rope Rider courses.

A total of 288 golfers are expected this year and only a limited number of spaces are still available. The event is named for Jon Kitna, who played quarterback in the National Football League for fifteen years following his record-setting career at Central. Kitna retired this past January. He is now a math teacher and head football coach at Lincoln High School, in Tacoma, which is his alma mater.
