For the 4th straight year, the Saline Boys golf team is heading to the State Finals. The team secured the final qualifying spot with a 3rd place finish at the Regionals held at Lake Forest Golf Club yesterday.
The team shot 310 to finish behind 1st place Skyline(292) and runner-up Plymouth (305). Ian Martin led the team shooting 74, finishing 5th overall and making the All Regional Tournament Team. Sophomore Connor Learman finished with a 76, James Alcock 79 and Alex Derksen 81.
Coach Williams had this to say: “Going into the tournament, we figured there would be 5 teams with the best shot of grabbing one of those 3 spots. Huron and Canton were the other two teams. We lost to Huron in a SEC match, the SEC tournament and the Districts last week so to finish ahead of them at Regionals is a great accomplishment for our guys. They played very well yesterday and they are excited about going to states and having everything come together and seeing how high we can finish.”
The Boys Golf Team has had a great season We wish them the best of luck as they head to the State Championships!
