After breaking the school record for the lowest 18-hole tournament just last week, the Rams did it again! The Rockford girls varsity golf team competed in the Kent County Classic at Silver Lake Country Club, Tuesday, Aug. 21, taking third place after shooting a team score of 351.
Prior to this golf season, the last time Rockford broke the 18-hole school record for girls golf was in 2003. Now, with that record being broken twice in just one week, one might think this is a team to be reckoned with!
The team was led by senior Kennedy Stoll, who took fifth place overall shooting a score of 84, followed by senior Lexi Lehmkuhl who placed 8th with a score of 86, and sophomore Lili Schneider who placed 10th with a score of 89.
“After two tournaments, we've taken a back seat to two conference rivals in Hudsonville and Caledonia, however we've hit the ground running this season,” said head coach Scott Kruisenga. “With another school record broken, the Rams are playing with confidence but still have work to do in a tough conference.”
