Manistee edges Bear Lake at County Highlands

BEAR LAKE — The Manistee golf team closed the regular season with a 192-201 win against Bear Lake Tuesday at Bear Lake County Highlands.

Four players tied for medalist as Bear Lake’s Eli Garcia and Taylor Makowski and Manistee’s Avery Kiefer and Cody McShane all shot 47s on the front nine.

Hunter Lindstrom and Jarred Willett both shot 49s to complete Manistee’s score. The Chippewas used a lineup Tuesday that didn’t feature any of the five players who will compete in today’s Division 3 district tournament.

“They got a chance to go out and show what great golfers they are,” said Manistee coach Mike Swanson, who singled out McShane, a senior. “He peaked in his last match. I’m happy for Cody.”

Bryson Waller shot a 49 and Austin Baczewski a 58 for the Lakers.

“It’s the first time we’ve had three people in the 40s,” said Bear Lake coach Roark Pargeon, “which is nice looking towards districts.”
