Grand Haven’s varsity girls golf squad shot its best nine-hole score of the season on Tuesday against Rockford.
Unfortunately for the Bucs, so did the Rams.
Rockford edged Grand Haven, 185-191, in an O-K Red showdown.
“I like the direction we’re going,” said Bucs’ coach Roger Glass. “We just have to keep getting better for regionals. All of the girls felt like they played better than what they scored. They just left a few shots out there.
“Our midseason conference tournament is Thursday. Hopefully we can put it all together. All they have to do is shave 2-3 strokes, make a few putts, and we could finish second.”
Martha Ramsey shot her second consecutive round of 45 on Tuesday, while Hailey Watkins was next with a 46. Megan Hendrickson carded a 48, followed by Anna Gagnon and Stephanie Boerma, each with a 52.
WMC RUNNERS BEAT THE HEAT
The Warriors’ cross country runners withstood a true test in the heat at Tuesday's River Valley Jamboree at Johnson Park in Grand Rapids.
“With three meets in six days, it's a tough week for everyone and when you add hills, wind and high temps, it’s all the more difficult to stay motivated,” coaches Steve Snuffer and Kevin Aardema said. “Our runners battled it out and survived in great fashion.
The Warriors’ girls placed second out of five teams, led by Adrienne Aardema, Breunisje Kass-McGrady, Shelby Lile, Josie Ruiter and Lauren Myers.
The WMC boys placed third out of five teams, led by Braxton Snuffer, David Gilson, Christian Foreman, John Sturrus, and Greg Plyler.
