Freshman, Karina VanDuinen captured R-PH’s first girl’s individual state title in school history this past weekend in Division II competition at Bedford Valley Golf Club in Battle Creek, MI.

Karina finished the 2-day tournament with a final score of 156 with a strong finish during the second day of play.  After carding an 82 on day one, Karina cut her score by eight strokes shooting a 74 to earn top honors.

Her coach, Mr. Chris Carter shared, “I didn’t know how much the pressure would get to her.  I was confident she would shoot par.  She never missed a tee shot.”

The future looks very bright for Karina and R-P golf!  Congratulations Karina!
