FHC varsity golf plays well in a prestigious invite


This past Monday, April 24, the boys varsity golf team traveled to Oakland Hills Country Club. It is one of the most prestigious golf courses, and they were to compete against twenty-two of the best golf teams in the entire state. The Michigan weather was living up to its rocky standards, as it was a cold and wet day, which is not ideal for golf. Despite this, the boys pushed through and performed very well, finishing 12th overall. Sure, they did not finish first or even top ten, but they established themselves as one of the more dominant teams in the area.

Junior captain Nicholas Notarnicola was especially pleased with how he played, especially at such a stellar golf course. He finished with a score of 77, leading the team and finishing 21st overall.

“I was enjoying myself and it was a privilege to play at that course,” Nicholas said. He was a little bit nervous considering the prestige of the course and the weather but stayed calm and collected. “I kept my cool and took in my surrounding environment. I knew that I needed a good round to get myself motivated.”

Junior captain Philip Murdock also scored pretty high, shooting an 81 and earning 44th overall. He continues to be an asset for the Rangers, as he continually and consistently puts up good numbers every single match.

Head coach Paul TenEyck once again was pleased with the way his team is performing. This is a testament to their hard work as day in and day out they put in the work and strive to get better.

“Yesterday was a very long, cold day. Overall, the team did very well competing. They did not let the weather or the elements get to them,” Coach TenEyck said.

The Rangers varsity boys golf team will be back to competing in the OK White Conference with a jamboree at Egypt Valley Country Club, on April 26, at 3:30 pm.
