Registration is now open for thetournament, which will be played Monday, August 5 at the Ranch Golf Club in Southwick, Mass.  The tournament is a scramble format, with a noon shotgun start. Lunch precedes the round and a buffet awards dinner follows.

Now in his 15th season at Westfield State, Ditmar has transformed the Owls' women's soccer team into a perennial contender for the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic conference title, and a regional powerhouse which has qualified for the NCAA Tournament in each of the last two seasons, and seven times in the last 11 years.

A full-time staff member at Westfield, he also manages the University's club sports programs.  Ditmar has posted a coaching record of 140-86-22 at Westfield and has a career collegiate record of 254-172-29 in 27 seasons at Bay Path and Westfield.
