Lady Ranger golf’s season concludes after a 6th place regional finish


An unfortunate ending of the season came yesterday afternoon for the FHC golfers, taking 6th place at the regional tournament. To move onto states, either the team must be in the top three, or as an individual, players must be in the top three of players whose teams didn’t qualify. Junior Skyler Tierney, one of the team captains, landed only one stroke away from advancing to the state finals. There was a tie between Lowell and Coopersville for 1st place, which ended up being given to Lowell based on the official tiebreaker. Forest Hills Northern was one stroke behind 1st place but took the last advancing spot. The FHC team was 26 strokes away from advancing, shooting a team score of 387.

“We knew we had a really young team coming into today’s tournament,” coach TenEyck explained. “That youth showed a little bit today. I’m very proud of the way we improved throughout the year, and I have no doubt that next year we will be ready for this stage.”

It was a sad day for TenEyck, not having any of his girls advance to the next stage, but he’s staying positive and focusing on the potential the team has of taking home the hardware next year.

Skyler was also asked to reflect on the season from a captain’s perspective. “It was a great season for us, but unfortunately we couldn’t pull through at regionals. I’ve never been more proud than I am about the way our team progressed throughout the season. Next year is going to be our year for a state championship.”

This is the end of the 2022 FHC girls golf season, but the players won’t stop working on their game, so we’ll see many more 1st place finishes and way lower scores next year.
