Due to injuries and inconsistency, the Bucs are haven’t quite reached that goal as they finished fourth with a 333 at Friday’s O-K Red Conference Mid-Season Tournament at The Meadows at Grand Valley State University in Allendale. A 320 would have put the Bucs in second place, behind champion Grandville, which shot a 318. Rockford shot a 320 as well, followed by Hudsonville’s 321, East Kentwood’s 335, Jenison’s 340, West Ottawa’s 350, and Muskegon’s 423.
Bucs’ senior Ben Lewis finished eighth overall individually with a 78, followed by Kevin Lacroix’s 79. Patrick Ferris added an 85, John Morehouse carded a 91, and Anthony Perrier finished with a 97.
“Our number one, two, and three players are posting a solid score, but we are still looking for that fourth score in the low 80s,” White said. “The guys are getting better each week and this was a good tournament for us. We have a couple guys out with injuries that can help us out as soon as they are able to get back in the lineup.”
