Alcona golf comes within nine strokes of state championship

BATTLE CREEK-The Alcona golf team finished their season tied for second (9 shots out of first) at the state finals at Bedford Valley in Battle Creek. The teams two day total of 663 tied that of Charlevoix.

However, the MHSAA tie breaker uses the 5th players score which edged out Alcona’s to offically grant Charlevoix the “Runner Up” status.

This one stroke difference leaves a slightly bitter taste to an overall great season for the Tigers. The team tied and broke many individual and team records this year and has set the standard high for any team to follow.

The team graduates 5 seniors (Walker Kelly, Lucas Weichel, Josh Mead, Dustin Yokom, and Jacob Riggs) and will start rebuilding for another great season in 2015.
