Sophomore Skyler Tierney came out on top for the girls varsity golf team with a 43 on Wednesday at Eygpt Valley Country Club, placing third overall. Her efforts helped lead FHC to a third-place title in its first OK White Conference Jamboree. 

The Rangers were up against a tough track at Eygpt Valley. The undulation of the putting surfaces made it difficult for the girls to judge their putts. Head coach Paul TenEyck was expecting this coming into the jamboree; he has had much more experience at Eygpt Valley than the young varsity team. 

“The greens today were extremely difficult as far as speed and break,” coach TenEyck said. “However, I was pleased with our overall performance.”

Although coach TenEyck was pleased with his team’s performance, senior Bella Wiseley was not satisfied with her personal performance on Wednesday. Bella finished her nine-hole round by posting a score of 55. An inconsistent tee-ball caused the senior to struggle with getting the ball on the fairway. 

“I need to work on my driver,” Bella stated. “I am working on keeping my shoulders square and getting more rotation in my swing.”

This Friday, Kenowa Hills will host the Lady Rangers at Gracewill Country Club. The 18-hole Johnsen Classic will begin at roughly 9:00 AM. The tournament will consist of teams throughout the West Michigan area and will test the Rangers. Coach TenEyck is using this event as a measuring tool for his players’ competitive drive and a way to compare them with some of the elite golfers in the area.
