Two days after capturing a Greater Lansing Activities Conference title, the Olivet boys’ golf team achieved another goal by placing second in the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 3 District Tournament at Hastings Country Club.
As a result of Wednesday’s runner-up finish, the Eagles advance to the June 1 regional tournament at Lake Cora Hills Golf Course in Paw Paw.
Olivet finished with 336 strokes at the district event, eight off the pace set by Grand Rapids NorthPointe Christian. Grand Rapids South Christian (339), Portland (340), Grand Rapids West Catholic (360) and Lakewood (367) rounded out the list of regional-qualifying teams.
Drake Norton led the Eagles with a sizzling 77, which ranked him second individually behind Portland’s Rhet Schrauben (76). Other Olivet scores were Jake Andrews (85), Kam Porter (86), Levi Burgett (88) and Chase Collins (88).
