Spring Lake currently sits at first place in the league standings with 778 points. Ludington is second at 813 points, and Fremont a distant third at 870, with two jamborees remaining.

On Saturday, the Lakers took first place in the Shelby Invitational at Oceana Golf Course, shooting a team score of 308. Chippewa Hills was a distant second, shooting a 336.

Vanderlaan eagled the opening hole of the event and finished with an 81, tied for ninth best.

McGannon and Bonter tied for second place with rounds of 76, while Fry shot a 77 and Nick Parnell added a 79.

“What I liked about the Grant and Tri-County jamboree is that my 3-4 men didn’t do well on the back, but my 5-6 guys did,” said Lakers’ coach George Bitner.

The Lakers host Muskegon Catholic Central today at Spring Lake Country Club, then will compete in the Lakes Eight Conference jamboree, hosted by Fremont and Newaygo, on Thursday at Briar Hill Golf Course.
