Boys JV golf has a strong three days of performances

Boys JV golf might only have four more weeks left of play, but that isn’t stopping the boys from giving it their all on the course, no matter the opponent.

The team faced off last week against Forest Hills Northern and Lowell along with competing in the 2022 Shores JV Boys invite.

On Monday, May 2, the team went up against one of its biggest rivals: the Forest Hills Northern Huskies. The boys battled hard at Indian Trails in hopes of taking the win, but the Huskies swept the Rangers, leaving the team 0-1 for the week.

“We had a little bit of a struggle against Northern adjusting to the shorter course, but after that match, we revised how we were gonna play the course, then the Lowell match we played at the same course went well,” freshman Sammy Rabideau said.

On Wednesday, the boys had a different story to tell against the Lowell Red Arrows at Thornapple Pointe. Both teams were neck-and-neck for the whole match, but this time FHC took the win from Lowell in a very strong showing of talent.

Last for the week, the boys competed at the 2022 Shores JV Boys Invite and brought their A-game with them in hopes of showing the other teams up. Twelve teams competed Thursday, with Spring Lake winning by a long shot and the Rangers coming in ninth at the end of the day. Although it might not have been the outcome the team wanted, it got playing experience with some out-of-conference teams that helped the guys grow as golfers.

The team plays next on Monday, May 9, against the Grand Rapids Christian Eagles at Indian Trails.

“I think we are starting to get better; when we lose we really take it into account for the next time we play so we can do better,” sophomore Trystan Tilton said.
