Onekama loses a close match to Frankfort tonight after a hitting error caused two disqualificationsback around the 3rd hole. Onekama 205 to Frankfort 200 was the Official Final Score. If the error had not occurred OHS would have had 198 to their 200. If the error had been caught right away and corrected by the rules each of them would add 2 penalty strokes. This would have tied the two schools and in that case the 5th man's score is used. This would have ended with OHS 260 to Frankfort 268 ,but that is the way the cookie crumbles and we take our loss in the non-league match tonight at The Heathlands.What actually happened earlier in the match to cause the DQ's was that one of our team members accidently hit another team members ball. Instead of correcting the situation on the spot, the group played on for another few holes rendering the situation uncorrectable. To correct something like this , the play would start over back at the original point of play with both of them taking a 2 stroke penalty.Low man for Onekama was Nathan Griswold with 45, Jordan Pomeroy shot 46, Todd Lyman finished with 54 and Chris Smith 60, to round out the scoring four. Tim Veverica shot a 53 and Josh Cebula a 61. Drew shot a 49, Stephanie a 54 and Kristie a 60 on the back nine.

Frankfort's low man and Match Medalist was Kyle Mick with 40, Wiley Heller shot 43, Nolan Clements 58 and Jack Wilbank 59. Also shooting for Frankfort was Morgan Tom with 68 and Matt Salakovich with 69.Now that I have all parents confused, Let's just say it was overall a good match with some great scoring! Until next time, hit them long and straight , and parents, keep studying our definition page!

Stephanie Carlson Improves by several strokes to score a 54! Kristie Sievert shot another 60 and is looking to break that at the next match. These girls are rapidly shaving strokes off their game!

Note: By MHSAA rule, every high school team is allowed 16 contest dates. OHS currently has 13 scheduled not counting Regionals. Attempts will be made to fill the schedule by adding 3 more matches.

Practice has now officially started and is in full swing. No pun intended! Most of the Golf team members have been working on their technique at various courses throughout the summer on their own, but now they can practice as a team and with their coach. Just in time too, as the first match is coming up fast, August 10th to be precise which will be a non-conference match against Mesick. The Portagers call The Heathlands their Home course and there will be several matches held there.

Each member brings to the team this year a variety of levels of experience.

The season looks to be good for the Portagers with some veterans of team play returning as well as some new comers who are looking solid. The team will have put away 6 matches before school starts this fall....come out and support your Portagers at the Heathlands! Or, check the schedule and catch up with them at any of their other matches! GO TEAM! Hit them Long and Straight!
