One day after shooting a disappointing 189, Spring Lake managed to win yet another Lakes Eight golf jamboree.
This time Fruitport was the host, as the Lakers shot a 162, improving 27 strokes overnight.
“You knock four strokes off our score we’d be in the 150’s,” said coach George Bittner. “I was happy with our performance today after yesterday. If you divide 27 by four that’s over six strokes a girl.”
Spring Lake’s score was over 20 strokes better than second-place Ludington.
The Lakers were also within one stroke of tying their still-fresh nine-hole record of 161.
Anna Kramer was the low scorer for the Lakers with a 38, including two birdies.
Spring Lake’s 674 is over 100 strokes ahead of second-place Ludington.
Fruitport remains in last place with a 926, but Tuesday’s event was kind to the host Trojans.
Coach Doree Hall said her team’s score of 218 was an improvement of over 30 strokes, and was their best performance of the season.
The Trojans got out of the conference basement on Tuesday with a fifth-place finish.
Alexis Jackel shot a career-best 47 for the Trojans. Kelsey Alviar and Jamie Fortenbacher also shot career bests.
