MHSSA Division 3 Boy’s Golf Regional #14 at The Falls at Barber Creek


At Wednesday’s MHSAA Division 3 Boy’s Golf Regional #14 Tournament, the Portland boys’ varsity golf team rebounded from several early round individual “fires” to finish in eight place out of nineteen teams. Portland’s score of 377 was three strokes better than their submitted 380 average score. The Raider’s 377 was six strokes better than county rival Lakewood (383) and outdistanced neighboring Pewamo-Westphalia who finished with a 412.


Played at the challenging The Falls at Barber Creek near Kent City, one the states most highly ranked Division 3 golf programs, Grand Rapids Catholic Central (the 2022 D3 State Champion Runner-Up) won the Regional with a score of 317.Grand Rapids Covenant Christian finished with a 336 to earn the second third State Final qualifying spot with a 338.


There was a key Portland achievement from yesterday’s MHSAA Golf Regional. Individually for the Raiders:


Isaac Honsowitz put together an outstanding final six-hole finish of two bogies, three pars and a birdie to finish in 7th place individually overall out of ninety golfers. Isaac’s score of 83 earned him one of only three, non-team qualifying golfers that move on from each of the six D3 Regional sites to play in the D3 State Finals.


Junior, Kaleb Bower and sophomore Layne Painter carded near bogey rounds with a pair of 93’s. Sophomore Carter Higbee managed to rebound from a frightful start on the back nine with a forty-eight on the front nine to finish with a 108. After starting his eighteen-hole round playing near bogey golf early on, Sophomore, Trent Durrant ended is round with a 110.


“Best of luck” to Isaac has he closes his high school golf career at next Friday’s and Saturday’s thirty-six-hole Division 3 State Finals being played at MSU’s Forest Akers West Golf Course in East Lansing.
