Girls Varsity Golf places high at conference championship

Kate Ryan, Sports Reporter

The FHC girls varsity golf team took second place at Candlestone Golf course last night in the OK White Conference Championship. The team all agreed that this is one of the toughest courses they compete on, located in Belding, Michigan. The combination of abundant pine trees, dense forest areas, and large sand pits forced the girls to adapt and adjust according to their surroundings.

The main struggle with some players was their drives, the trees made it hard for a shot to be playable if it was not perfectly straight. Although they were not destroying the competition and beating personal records for the season they still pulled through to get second place. Leading the team again with the lowest score is sophomore Ally Ringler with an 82, and coming in behind her were both junior Kayley Reynolds and senior Paige Snyder with 92’s. More scores from the Rangers included Haley Hamill(101), Meg Meekhof(106), and Kacie Rispler(124). With a tough 18 holes, the golfers were challenged but came out with a good victory over most teams in the end. Their next match is on Thursday, October 5 at Reeths Puffer for regionals.
