The Superintendent's Cup

The 2019 Superintendent's Cup was held July 18th at the beautiful Sandia Golf Club

The Superintendent's Cup Golf Tournament

2017 SuperCup Gplf Ball

This annual event brings together local captains of industry, APS leadership and golf lovers everywhere for an important reason - to support our students.

This year, the tournament raised just shy of $75,000 to fund innovative programs in the 2019-2020.  From sponsorships, to participating in the fundraising drawing to making cash donations, the community came together to have fun, network and support innovative approaches to public education.  The funds will be put to work right away in APS classrooms this fall.

An Interview with Rich Cangiolosi

Rich Cangiolosi of CCMSI and his team won the 2019 Superintendent's Cup.  After winning the AM Flight, they came back to the course late in the evening for a playoff to win the title.  

Tell us about your game in the AM Flight.  Any secrets of your success?
The guys I played with are people I play with every week.  We all are decent golfers and we know each other’s game.  It didn’t hurt that we are all members of Sandia’s Tournament Players Champion Golf Association. We play in several tournaments and rounds of golf a year at Sandia. We know the course very well.  Also, playing from the white tees was an advantage to us.  We had several Eagle opportunities during the round.  We also have three really good putters on the team.

You came back to play off against Keers Remediation, the PM Flight winners to win the tournament.  Tell us about the playoff.
We made a big mistake not warming up after we returned.  We had not swung a club in over six hours and it showed on the first hole of the playoff.  We were fortunate that we made it to the chip off.  The other team had four putts from about 10 feet to beat us on the 18th hole and they did not make it.  I knew if we got the chip off that we had a chance because one of our players is very good with his wedges.

Talk a bit about your work at CCMSI and also share the other ways in which you support students and the community. 
CCMSI is a Third Party Administrator and we handle all of the Workers’ Compensation claims for APS.  We also handle every public and charter school in the state. We work very hard at limiting the costs of these claims so that schools will have more money in their budget for more important things like salaries and to put more in the classrooms. I am also on the New Mexico Workers Compensation Association Foundation Board that raises money for scholarships for children whose parent was either killed or permanently disabled from a work injury to further their education.  To date, we have paid out over $1 million in scholarships. 

CCMSI has been a big supporter of the APS Education Foundation by sponsoring the tournament for numerous years at a high level.  Why do you think it is important to invest in education?
We are strong believers in investing in our state's future.  We want our children to succeed, our education system to improve and to make the State of New Mexico an attractive place for businesses and families to move to this great place. 

Besides your big win, what was your favorite memory from this year’s tournament?
I had a blast playing with my good friends and to hang out with the great staff that help put on a great tournament. 

Rich Cangiolosi, you won the 2019 Superintendent’s Cup!!  What will you do next? 
Keep playing golf and get ready to defend next year!
