The Lakers finished with 788 total strokes throughout the league jamborees this fall, nearly 100 strokes better than second-place Ludington, which finished with 870.
Tri-County was third in the final league standings at 873, followed by Fremont with 885 and Fruitport with 915.

The Lakers wrapped up the title by shooting a team score of 202 at Tuesday’s jamboree.

Coach George Bitner said he figured his young Lakers would have a tough time winning the league this year.

He was wrong.

“I’m a little surprised, especially this year, because the last couple jamborees, we’ve had two freshmen and two sophomores as our top four scorers,” he said.

The Lakers dominated the all-conference standings. Tri-County’s Taylir Kral was the overall league champion with 181 total strokes. The Lakers’ Karissa Rashke, a sophomore, was second at 186, and fellow sophomore Ginnie Olszewski was fourth at 193. Freshman Emma Conroy also made first-team all-conference with a total of 196 strokes.

Freshman Faith Lee was a second-team all-conference honoree, as were Fruitport’s Jenna Visinski and Alexis Jackel.

On Tuesday, Conroy and Raschke led the Lakers with rounds of 48. Olszewski added a 50, while Kayla Krueger and Lee each shot a 56 and Sammi Lewakowski carded a 59.

Spring Lake will continue its season at Kenowa Hills on Friday.
