Gabby Hesketh was the recipient of the LVAC scholarship.
The Lake View Athletic Club held its annual golf outing in honor of Bill Launder, during the summer. Close to 90 golfers, consisting of Launder’s former teammates, family and friends, participated. This year’s $500 scholarship winner was Gabby Hesketh, who attends Fredonia State College.
The LVAC is made up of players from the Lake View team that played in the Buffalo Evening News Suburban and Twilight Baseball leagues. The former teammates started getting together for reunions and golf outings a few years ago, after the death of their teammate and friend Launder. In total, LVAC has now awarded $6000 in scholarships in his name. For information former players can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
