FHC boys varsity golf shows one of its best performances yet


This past Wednesday, April 26, the boys varsity golf team traveled to Egypt Valley Country Club for yet another OK White Jamboree. This time, though, the results would be a little bit different. The boys finished second overall behind an insanely talented Grand Rapids Christian team. However, leading the way for the Rangers was junior captain Nicholas Notarnicola, who shot a 37 and took first place in the entire jamboree. After a few rough matches at the beginning of the season, Nicholas’s performance is beginning to heat up.

“It feels great,” Nicholas stated. “I knew sooner or later I was gonna start picking up my game, and it’s a big confidence booster to better my play and have my score reflect it.”

Not only did Nicholas get first place, but freshman Matthew Murdock also played extremely well, shooting a 39 and finishing in 6th place overall, an impressive feat considering the competition. In addition to this, the whole team played very well all around.

Once again, head coach Paul TenEyck was pleased with his team’s performance, saying “We played fairly well as a team. We are still looking for consistency, especially at the top of our lineup. Nicholas once again played really well, shooting a 37 for medalist honors.”

For the boys, the season is now well over halfway done, so it is time for some fine-tuning. Matches will now be spaced farther apart, which gives the team some extra time to practice. Some of the skills the boys will be working on are their close game with putting, and tightening up their swings in order to make them more accurate. While there is always room for improvement, it is safe to say that the boys are playing their best golf right now heading into the home stretch. With only five days off, the team will be back in action on Monday, May 1, at Watermark, and the match will begin at 3:30 pm.
