SL golf tightens grip on Lakes Eight lead

The Lakers' varsity boys golf team had already scored Lakes Eight Conference jamboree wins at Ludington and Fremont earlier this spring. They weren't about to let either of their rivals come onto Spring Lake Country Club and repay the favor. Spring Lake defended its home course and in the process built on its lead in a very tight league race. To see more photos from Monday's meet, click here.

“There’s a hint of pressure, because we don’t want to get beat here, that’s for sure,” said Lakers’ senior Marcus Fry, a returning all-stater. “We beat Ludington and Fremont at their courses, so it was nice to get all three.”

Fry and the Lakers turned in a team score of 158 on Monday. Ludington was second at 165, followed by Fremont at 170, Fruitport at 179, Orchard View at 188 and Tri-County at 204.

Fry’s classmate, Nic Parnell, carded the low round for Spring Lake with an even-par 37. Ben Kramer shot a 40 while Bricker Reed and Connor Love each shot a 42.

Spring Lake now leads the overall team standings by 16 strokes over Ludington and 29 strokes over Fremont with two league jamborees remaining.
