For the tenth time in the past 11 years the Seaholm girl’s golf team captured the regional title and moved on to the state competition at The Meadows course at Grand Valley State University.
“Regional’s was a huge success this year.” freshman Jordan Michalak said. “Everyone played great and we were all pleased with the team’s performance.”
States held over two days, October 19 and 20, and 36 holes. Seaholm’s top five golfers included junior captains Riley Miller (191) and Megan Lam (172), sophomore Jamie Greene (178), and freshman Jordan Michalak (175) and Allegra Cunningham (191).
Sophomore Rachel Wilson, who is a key player to the teams success missed the last three weeks of the season with a wrist injury. Wilson averages a three handicap.
“I withdrew from the league meet on October 1,” Wilson said. “It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, not being able to participate in something I loved to do.”
At the end of the two days Seaholm finished with 712 strokes, fourth behind Okemos (711), Battle Creek Lakeview (707), and defending State champs Muskegon Mona Shores (666).
“I think at the time we were disappointed, but looking back and the circumstances we were under being such a young team and losing Rachel, we were happy with it.” Miller said. “We were so close even under those circumstances and that will give us a lot of initiative to win it all next year.”
