Boys varsity golf places sixth in the Mona Shores Invitational


Yesterday, May 15, the boys varsity golf team set out to Muskegon Country Club with the intent of getting back on track after a rough prior match. With over 20 other schools to compete against, this would be no easy task. On top of this, Muskegon CC is known to be one of the more difficult courses in the area. However, luckily for FHC, the boys had brought their a-game right from the start.

After a long, hard day of golfing, the Rangers finished in sixth place overall, a very impressive mark considering the prestige of the event and the level of golfers competing. The top scorers for the Rangers were freshman Matthew Murdock, who shot a 78 and earned himself sixth place out of the whole tournament.

Just like most of the boys, though, because of the tough attitude the team exhibits, Matthew was not satisfied, despite performing exceptionally well. After the match, he told me “The greens were very fast so that made us struggle, we’re trending in the right direction but still work to be done. We’re in a good spot going into conference.”

Other notable performances for the Rangers included Junior captains Philip Murdock and Nicholas Notarnicola, shooting 83 and 84 respectively. Their consistency throughout the season has been a testament to the team’s success.

Overall, the boys had a very good day, and much better than their previous match. Head Coach Paul TenEyck was pleased with the way his team performed, stating, “We played fairly well yesterday. Muskegon Country Club is a very difficult golf course and the greens can reach havoc. Matthew played exceptionally well, finishing in a tie for sixth place.”

This match wraps up the regular season as the team is back in action next week Monday, May 22, for the conference tournament at Thornapple Pointe.
