The 3rd Annual Amanda Post Memorial Golf Tournament was held Sept. 24 at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in honor of Amanda Post who perished in a terrible multi-car accident on Aug. 9, 2010.  Amanda had just graduated with honors from Cathedral Catholic High School and was scheduled to attend Cal Poly SLO on a track scholarship in the fall of 2010. Amanda was the CIF 800 meter gold medal winner and ran the anchor for the gold medal-winning Cathedral Catholic 4 x 400 meter relay team. She also went to the State Championships in June of 2010.  Amanda, her trainer, her assistant trainer, a track teammate, and Amanda’s boyfriend, Derek Thomas, were all returning from a high altitude Olympic training camp at Mammoth Mountain when she perished in a multi-car accident just south of Bishop, Calif.

Amanda’s family established the Amanda Post Memorial Scholarship Fund administered by the San Diego Foundation to provide scholarships for female student athletes graduating from high schools in San Diego County, who have outstanding grades, are entering a four-year university the coming fall, and will run competitively for their college NCAA cross country and/or track team each year.  The proceeds from the Amanda Post Memorial Golf Tournament goes to provide these scholarships.  In just two years, 10 scholarships have already been awarded to outstanding female student-athletes who are running competitively for their universities all across the country.
