The Spring Lake girls golf team carded a 351 to take top honors at the Fruitport Invitational on Friday.

The Lakers finished nine strokes better than second-place Kalamazoo Hackett Catholic Central (360), while North Muskegon finished third with a 380.

NorthPointe Christian (387), Coopersville (407), Fruitport (427), Whitehall (431), Manistee (444), Tri-County (453) and Montague (494) rounded out the team scoring.

For Spring Lake, senior Madelyn Nelson finished second overall with an 80, while junior Hannah Klein (82) and sophomore Phoebe Saunders (82) tied for third place.

Kayla Raschke added a 107, while freshman Kate Galloway added a 120.

“We had a much better performance today and brought our scores down a little bit,” said Spring Lake coach George Bitner. “Our top three golfers were pretty consistent throughout the day, but we still need to work on our putting. We had way too many 3-putts for my liking.

“We’ll have a few days to work on that next week before we get ready for a jamboree in Jenison on Thursday.”

For Fruitport, Rachel Pierce led the way with a 98, while Josie Buckingham shot a 99.
