The Knights shot a 151, while the Lakers came in at 154. Allendale was a distant third at 171.

“It was our best performance of the year for nine holes,” said coach George Bitner. “Kenowa Hills had three scores in the 30’s.”

Spring Lake also had three in the close contest. Bricker Reed led the Lakers with a 36. Brenden Peel and Ryan Johnson followed with careers bests of 37 and 39. Ben Kramer, Tanner Debien and George Nietering were each a stroke off from one another, coming in at 42, 43 and 44.

The Lakers tallied individual season totals after the event, and found that Kramer (546) and Reed (547) were separated by a mere stroke after 14 nine-hole matches.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever had that,” Bitner said. “I think they’re sort of competitive with each other, which is good.”
