The 30th edition of the Ted Alex Memorial golf tournament will tee off June 7 at the Golf Club at Oxford Greens in Oxford.

A field of about 125 golfers is expected to greet a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start.

The event is organized and hosted every year by Matt Adams, a 1983 graduate of Shepaug Valley High School, in memory of Ted Alex.

Alex was a teacher and coach at Washington and Shepaug Valley high schools from 1956 until his death in 1984.

His Spartan baseball teams posted a 388-122 record for 29 seasons, earning state championships in 1973 and 1983 and winning two Housatonic Schoolmen's League titles and 14 Berkshire League championships.

Proceeds from the event help fund a scholarship given each year to a senior member of the Shepaug golf team.
