FHS golfers first at Caro
The Frankenmuth varsity boys’ golf team continued its winning ways last week at the Caro Golf Course.
The Eagles made it four Tri-Valley Conference East Division Jamborees in a row, carding a 169. Essexville-Garber came in second place with a 188, followed by Caro (199), North Branch (204), Millington (223) Birch Run (229) and Otisville-LakeVille (555).
‘Muth now has a 48-stroke lead over the Dukes with three Jamborees left to play.
Daniel Wagner shot 41 to lead FHS. He birdied the first hole. Chase Singer carded a 43 with an eagle on hole No. 1. Kurtis Wolfram also shot 42 and made another birdie on the first hole. Jacksen McKenzie (43), Kyle Wolfram (53) and Wes Darrow (56) rounded out the team scoring.
Garber’s Justin Loomis was the Jamboree medalist with a 39. He holds a two-stroke lead over Wagner.
“We shot a bunch of doubles and others which kept our golfers from having better numbers,” FHS Coach Dan Wagner said. “We need to begin eliminating these as we get closer to regionals as the end of the month.”
While the team has been playing well, Wagner knows the competition will ramp up as the month progresses. Also, the MHSAA has eliminated the district level of competition, meaning the first line of state qualification is the regionals. Fortunately, the May 31 Division 3 regional will be held here at The Fortress Golf Course.
“Our shot selection, course knowledge and management must get better if we plan on contending at a bigger level. A double or triple bogey happens occasionally, but multiples of these are unacceptable. I’m confident we can build on this match as experience,” Wagner stated.
Frankenmuth travels to Millington’s Willow Spring Golf Course today (May 10) for the fifth TVC East Jamboree, beginning at 1pm. They will play at Valley Farms Golf Course at 4pm Friday, May 12, to take on Hemlock, and then dives back into TVC East play with Birch Run hosting a Jamboree at Green Acres Golf Course.
