It was a great showing from the varsity golf team, who took third place in the Grand Haven Jamboree, Thursday, Sept. 27. The Rams claimed third after a tie-break against Caledonia. The team wrapped up the 9-hole match with a score of 172, which was the lowest team score of the season and just five strokes away from tying the school record.
“The team is really playing well and becoming more consistent as the season moves along,” said Coach Scott Kruisenga.
The highlight of the match was Kennedy Stoll, who achieved a personal record, shooting 37 for the day and securing a first-place finish. Also finishing in the top 10, was Lexi Lehmkul who placed sixth with a score of 43. Following Lexi , was Sydney Green who shot 45 and Lili Schneider who shot 47.
“(Kennedy’s score) was just two shots from tying the school record,” shared Kruisenga. “Sydney Green has been a nice surprise shooting consistently in the mid 40’s and Lili Schneider scored her personal best for the season as she posted a 47 for the nine holes.”
The Rams move on to Post Season next week, playing at Thornapple Pointe, Tuesday, Oct. 2.
