The event used a modified scoring system where the front nine consisted of a two-person scramble and the back nine switched to match play.
Kristen Carlson, Kaitlyn Deprekel, Amanda Merz and Martha Ramsey each won their match play competition. Merz was tied going into the last hole and held on for a victory.

Coach Roger Glass credited junior varsity call-up Stephanie Boerma with coming in and playing well for the Bucs.

“We’re seeing improvement,” Glass said. “We’re still trying to figure out our lineup. Little by little, we’re going to get better.”

BYRON CENTER BESTS SL SWIM

Spring Lake’s varsity swim team came up on the short end of a 114-69 loss to Byron Center on Thursday at the Spring Lake Aquatic Center.

The Lakers had athletes qualify for the Division 3 state finals in three events, including the 200 medley relay team of Ginny Cotterall, Lydia Gleason, Roxane Strobel and Jaylen Adkins that finished in 2 minutes, 2.29 seconds.

Cotterall also had a state-qualifying effort in the 500 freestyle (5:38.28), while Gleason earned the distinction in the 100 breaststroke (1:14.19).

Theune also highlighted Adkins' strong night, as she turned in a 26.59 finish in the 50 freestyle and a 100 freestyle time of 58.01.

In diving, the Lakers’ Wilhelmenia Fransisco took second, Makayla Boyink was third and Paige Rubleski was fourth.

RAMS DEAL FRUITPORT 1ST LOSS

A pair of second-half goals lifted Rockford to a 2-0 soccer victory over Fruitport on Thursday.

The Trojans hung tough with an outstanding defensive effort, but the Rams claimed a 1-0 lead on a penalty kick early in the second half. Rockford scored off a direct kick later in the second half to make it 2-0.

Fruitport put a ball off the post on a shot by Ryan Craker, but couldn’t find the back of the net.

“We played an amazing intense first half and held Rockford to just two shots,” Fruitport coach Greg Kobylak said. “In the second half, two minutes in, we were very unlucky when a player in an unthreatening position in the penalty area was tripped, and their penalty shot just snuck past Loghan Stong.”

Stong, the Trojans’ goalie, finished with nine saves and also came off his line to gobble up several other balls, thwarting potentially dangerous Rockford chances.

Kobylak credited defenders Ryan Mason, Zach Boroff, Taylor McLaughlin and Brad Edwards with playing an outstanding game against the powerful Rams.

The Trojans are back in action against another O-K Red Conference team when they host Jenison on Monday.
