Prep Sports Roundup: TC West wraps up BNC golf crown

GAYLORD —Traverse City West wrapped up its fifth Big North Conference golf title in six seasons with a victory at Tuesday’s league finals at the Gaylord Country Club.

All four of West’s counters carded scores under 80 in the process.

Cam Murray and Alex Scott each shot 77s, with Payden Myers shooting 78 and Brady Greenman 79.

Murray locked up BNC medalist honors, shooting a league-best average of 71.3 per event.

“His season was highlighted with the back-to-back 67s he had earlier this year,” West coach Mike Schultz said. “It’s been very fun to watch.”

The Titans shot 311 as a team, with runner-up Traverse City Central 21 strokes behind, followed by Ogemaw Heights (337), Gaylord (347), Petoskey (349) and Cadillac (353). West won all six NBC events this season.

Central’s counters were Winton Munch (76), Trey Pezzetti (84), Abe Lewis (86) and Derek Schrank (86).

After the tourney, the all-Big North team was decided. West’s Myers, Scott, Brady Greenman and Steve Gaston were among the 12 selections, joined by Central’s Munch and Pezzetti, Gaylord’s Cam Laug, Ogemaw’s Jon Matthews, Steve Kish and Jon Robinson and Petoskey’s Tyler Spiegl.

Central and West are in Division 1 district action Friday at Bay County Golf Course.


TCSF wraps up LMC

Traverse City St. Francis’ opponents included more than just those on the court as the Gladiators earned the Lake Michigan Conference championship.

Play at Boyne Mountain was halted during the second round and the entire event was shifted to Bay Tennis & Fitness Center in Petoskey to complete indoors.

In the end, the Glads won seven of eight flights, beating just about everybody — including the elements.

“We had everybody in the finals,” TCSF coach Jeff Hughes said. “It was extremely impressive. I can’t remember that happening before. And they had to deal with the weather.”
