The Mustang golf team is advancing to the MHSAA Division III Regionals next Thursday, June 7th at the Medalist Golf Club in Marshall (http://www.themedalist.com/contactus/). Top gun for the Mustangs at Districts was Stefan Fahlen with a 75. Kevin VanTongeren and Peter Wiersma both shot 82’s while Sophmore, Kyle Reitsma, shot an 84 to round out the scoring for NPC.
They finished in 3rd behind District winner, Lansing Catholic Central (313) and West Catholic (321). Coach Tom Koert had this to say about the district showing by the Mustangs:
“I went in thinking that we would take a minimum of third. Lansing Catholic and West Catholic are tough, and we know it. At one point during our season, there were five schools in this district in the state rankings. We wanted to come in and have a good district and get nerves out of the way so when we go to regionals we’re prepared to play, and let the other teams know we mean business too.”
The Mustangs were ranked as high as 7th in Division III in the course of the season.
