Fessenden and LeMon were both named to the GRC all-conference team.
“The two stories to the season have been our youth and the weather,” head coach Jeremy Albright said. “One affects the other — it’s hard to get better as a young golfer when the weather isn’t letting you get outside and practice, but our kids are doing the best they can.”
The Tigers started the first round of Section 7AA play on Tuesday and Wednesday at Pokegama Golf Course in Grand Rapids. The section round takes place on Thursday, May 29, at Pokegama.
