Members of the Terry Page family recently presented checks for $4,000 each to the Grand County High School softball and boys basketball teams. The presentation was made prior to a volleyball game held at the school on Aug. 30, said Torrie Guerrero, who is Page’s daughter and an assistant volleyball coach.

Page, who was an avid supporter of Red Devil sports for many years, passed away at age 70 on July 31. In lieu of flowers or a formal service, his family encouraged making donations to high school sports.

To that end, the inaugural Terry Page Memorial Golf Tournament was born, with more than 100 participants playing in the event held at the Moab Golf Club on Saturday, Aug. 26.

This year, the $8,000 raised at the tournament went to two teams with special connections to Page, as he was an assistant softball coach for many years, and his grandson Connor Guerrero, a junior, is a member of the boys basketball team.

Organizers say the Terry Page Memorial Tournament is being planned as an annual event, with two additional GCHS sports teams to be next year’s beneficiaries.
