Big Rapids golf scores a 301 to lead area roundup

BOYS GOLF

Cardinals shoot 301

The Cardinals posted a 301 at Kent City. Pierce Morrissey was low medalist with a 1 under 71. Luke Welch took second place with a 75 and Owen Seay took third with a 76.  Trevor Woodard posted one of his more solid rounds of the year with a 79. Brett Lilienthal and Dawson Currie shot 85s.

“We looked pretty good today,” coach Mark Posey said. “The boys are starting to score better as the course conditions and weather improves. It seems like we played in cold rainy weather for the last three weeks so the sunny day was a warm welcome. Trevor and Owen are really starting to make some strides in their games.

“We will need them if we are going to make a postseason run. We are in action next and the Katke Classic on Friday and Saturday. It will be a big test for us because nine of the top 10 teams in our division will be there.”

Chippewa Hills boys finished second at the CSAA league Jamboree carding a 360. Golfers and scorers were: Mitch Kuzma 85; Kayden Doyle 85; Justin Birch 93; Noah Fiegel 97.

GIRLS TENNIS

Mount Pleasant 5, Big Rapids 3

The Cardinals traveled to Mount Pleasant Tuesday to play their last regular season contest.

“We were tied 3-3 and the last two matches were tight, but we came up just short,” Big Rapids coach Larry Langell said.

The top of the lineup was able to secure the three points for the Cardinals. At No. 1 singles and No. 2 singles, Eden Short and Brooke Hojnacki were able to win without giving up a game. “Eden and Brooke are both coming off a conference championship and are playing great tennis,” Langell said. “Both should be a force at Regionals on Friday.”

Chloe Mathewson and Sara Daniels had a three set win at No. 1 doubles.

“Their experience really showed in this match.” Langell said. “They lost the first set 6-1 but made some adjustments and took the second 6-4. They came out strong in the third set and were able to close out the match 6-0.”

The Cardinals travel north on Friday to take part in Regionals at Traverse City St. Francis.

“We hosted a D3 Regional in Big Rapids last year but unfortunately dropped to D4 this year and will be on the road,” Langell said.
