Spring Lake’s swimmers and divers scored a convincing 118-67 win over Mona Shores on Thursday.

The Lakers’ medley relay team of Megan Peel, Jen Meulenbelt, Sophie Conroy and Ellen Hyde turned in a state qualifying time of 1 minute, 59.45 seconds.

Meulenbelt also hit a state cut time in the 200 individual medley at 2:25.07.

Peel qualified for the state meet in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:03.95.

The Lakers also received outstanding swims from Mairead Cooper and Annie Brechting in the 100 butterfly; Audrey Gleason  and Carly Komar in the 100 freestyle; Paige Bruns and Becca Tober in the 500 freestyle; and Ana West in the 100 breaststroke.

“What a difference a couple days makes,” Lakers’ coach Penny Zacek said. “We looked like two different teams from Tuesday’s meet against Holland Christian to tonight’s first home meet. I am very proud of every girl on this team. They learned tonight that it is the seconds, third and fourth place finishes that really help win meets.

“We had a couple very good come-from-behind finishes which, from a coaching standpoint, is great to see. We still have a lot of work ahead. Next week we will compete against a very tough co-op school of Byron Center, (Grand Rapids) South Christian and Caledonia.”

That meet will take place Thursday at the Spring Lake Aquatics Center.


Grand Haven shot a 201 to place third at an O-K Red Conference tri-meet on Thursday at Macatawa Legends Golf Course in Holland.

Martha Ramsey shot a 45 for the Bucs. Anna Gagnon added a 50, while Meghan Hendrickson carded a 51 and Kaile DeVries shot a 55.

“I’m a little disappointed in our score,” Bucs’ coach Roger Glass said. “I thought we could have taken that match, but we’ll get back at it.”


Fruitport’s varsity tennis team suffered a 7-1 loss to Grant on Wednesday.

The Trojans’ lone win came at No. 1 singles, where Alex scored a 6-1, 6-4 victory.

Fruitport is now 1-2 on the season.
