Boys JV golf finishes its season with a close win against the FHN Huskies

With summer approaching, the boys junior varsity golf team swung into competition on its own course against the Forest Hills Northern Huskies. After a long season of matches and practice, the Rangers got to show all of their skills out on the links one last time.

“The team finished strong by beating FHN 199 to 206,” head coach Bill Alexander said. “This means they finished the season at .500 (7-7).”

The Rangers and Huskies have gone head-to-head many times before this season–both at the Rangers’ home course of Thornapple Pointe and the Huskies at Indian Trails. Both sides have faced some weather delays and decided to round their experiences off with one last competition despite some questionable weather in the forecast.

The boys battled hard through all nine holes on foot, and in the end, the Rangers were able to snag the win over the Huskies 199-206 This was a very strong showing on both sides and proved just how much every putt counts in the long run.

“We have had a long season with a few setbacks, but to have this win to finish the season with a 7-7 record felt great, even if we wanted to do a little better,” sophomore Trystan Tilton said.

Although the team’s season is over, all of its talented golfers are already looking towards improving over the summer to come back next year better than ever when they are joined by possible new teammates.

“This team was made up of wonderful young men,” head coach Bill Alexander said. “It was great getting to know them and watching them improve.”
