University To Honor Karpovich With 2021 Carlesimo Award June 14

University To Honor Karpovich With 2021 Carlesimo Award June 14

The University of Scranton’s 2021 Carlesimo Golf Tournament & Award Dinner will be held at Glenmaura National Golf Club in Moosic on Monday, June 14.

This year, the University will honor legendary golf coach Ed Karpovich '76, G'86 with the 2021 Peter A. Carlesimo Award. We are once again partnering with the Quandel Construction Group as Title Sponsor for this event.

Ed Karpovich has been the face of the golf program at The University of Scranton for more than four decades. A 1976 graduate of the University, Karpovich was a standout on the men’s golf team, leading the Royals to three MAC team titles while capturing the MAC individual crown in 1974 and 1976. He also competed in the 1974 and 1976 NCAA championships.

Karpovich returned to the University in 1982 as the head coach of the men’s golf team, a position he still holds today. When the University added women’s golf in 2016, Karpovich was the obvious choice to lead the program from the beginning. In 38 years, he has posted more than 350 victories between the two programs, including 12 finishes in the top three at conference championships.

While his numbers on the golf course are staggering, Karpovich’s loyalty and dedication to The University of Scranton and its student-athletes has been his true gift to the community. His knowledge of the game of golf, his belief in the Catholic and Jesuit ideals the University embodies, and his tireless work ethic have made the University a better place.

Named in honor of Peter A. Carlesimo, former University of Scranton coach and athletics director, the Carlesimo Golf Tournament & Award Dinner celebrates athletics at The University of Scranton and honors a person who has made special contributions to athletics and Catholic education. The Golf Tournament and Award Dinner serves as a fundraising event to support and enhance the student-athlete experience at Scranton.
