This is how tough the competition can be in the O-K Blue conference:

The Fruitport golf team shot what is believed to be a school record score of 337 at the O-k Blue Championship Tournament at Clearbrook Golf Course on Monday, according to head coach Aaron Gregory, but it was only good enough for seventh place.

Hudsonville Unity Christian won the event with a 309 score.

But the Trojans still shot very well, led by Chase Sullivan with an 81, which placed him 11th in the overall individual standings. Andres Cribley-Cotto shot an 83, followed by Macen Benderman (84), Cole Woodard (89), Tyler Carlson (92) and Hunter Fritz (102).

Despite the final team standings, Coach Gregory was excited about those scores.

“If you told me before the round that we would have three rounds under 85 and one more in the 80s, I would have been pumped,” Gregory said. “We have not had four rounds in the 80s since I have been coaching Fruitport. Our guys played well today and there is obvious improvement. We improved our team’s 18-hole score considerably over the season. Hopefully we can take that improvement into the regional next week.”

The Trojans also played well last week, finishing in sixth place out of 16 teams at the Hillsdale Academy Invitational at Grand Valley State University.

Sullivan led Fruitport with an 81, which was good for 12th place overall. Cribley-Cotto shot an 86, Benderman came in at 89, Tyler Carlson had a 92 and Cole Woodard shot a 100.

The Trojans will compete in regionals next Tuesday.  eddie
