The 2011 Jarkko Tuominen Scholars were announced at the Jarkko Tuominen Memorial Golf Tournament held on Monday, August 1st at Abenaqui Country Club in Rye, NH.  A total of 29 student-athletes from Seacoast United Soccer Club, Field Hockey Club, Seacoast United Maine, and the FC Greater Boston Bolts were awarded scholarships as they begin their college careers this fall.
