It is quite an accomplishment to earn medalist in the State Regional Tourney, but quite another to earn the top spot in the State Championship!
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!
