Congratulations to Hemlock’s Varsity Golf Team as they advance to States at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids. In a year filled with uncertainties created in the wake of a worldwide pandemic, the Hemlock Varsity Golf Team demonstrated a level of grit and determination that was unparalleled. Sunday evening’s required COVID-19 testing and a late start of the season didn’t stop these Huskies to rise above.
Recently, the Huskies took 3rd place at Regionals with a one-shot lead, Senior Carter Miller sunk a 4-foot putt on the last hole to beat Frankenmuth, and secure the win, and move on to the State Competition on June 11-12, 2021.
“This team came out determined and worked hard to make this season successful, shared Coach Brad Phillion. I had 2 returning senior players, Nolan Finkbeiner and Anthony Hagarty, and a new senior, Carter Miller, who couldn’t play due to the canceled sport’s season last year. Plus, I have some great underclassmen athletes, Junior Carson Countegan, Sophomore Zachary Krueger, not to mention my freshman Rocco Rosa, and many others returning next year that I can’t wait to watch grow in the sport!”
The Huskies have had a successful season with winning the Tri-Valley Conference Championship and many of the team winning medals and honors.
Principal Green said, “This is a great achievement for Hemlock High School. I can’t remember a golf team going on to the state competition in the last 20 years. This team has had some monumental moments this year in many areas. Way to go!”
