PHS Golf Takes Third in Final CAAC White Division Boys Golf Jamboree of Season
The sixth and final regular season CAAC White Division Boys Golf Jamboree was played Tuesday afternoon at Portland Country Club. Unlike the ideal weather conditions for golf, the Raiders varsity boy’s golf team found it difficult to put together four strong enough individual rounds to improve their hold on second place going into next week’s eighteen-hole divisional tournament. Lansing Catholic extended their undefeated divisional standing by taking first place shooting a team score of 178. Ionia edge out Portland by three strokes 190 to 193 to take second place. Charlotte came in fourth place with a score of 201 and Eaton was fifth with a 260.
Scoring for the Raiders was: Zach Pier who shot a 41; Jared Thomas finished with a 47; Hayden Getchell carded a 49 and Ethan Getchell rounded out the Portland scoring with a 56.
The current divisional standings have:
Lansing Catholic at 30-0 (with 36 pts.)
Portland at 22-8 (27 pts.)
Ionia at 19-11 (24 pts)
Charlotte at 13-17 (19 pts.)
Eaton Rapids at 6-24 (with 12 pts.)
The CAAC White Divisional Eighteen-Hole Varsity Boy’s Golf Tournament, where individual player and team points are doubled, will be played at The Emerald Golf Course near St. Johns next Tuesday, May 21nd.
