May 7, 2009 // 0 Comments

The Rockford Rams boys varsity golf team played their first home match at Braeside Golf Club in approximately 14 years on Tuesday, April 14. The match resulted in two Rockford victories, with Rockford scoring 156, followed by East Kentwood (159) and Muskegon (240). The Rams were led by Sam Gallup and Trent Davison with a score of 37 each, followed by Jake Chaffee (39), Eric Conroy (43), Adam Hoard (43), and Steven Mette (43). The Rams defeated Grandville and Hudsonville on Tuesday night, April 28, at the Meadows of Grand Valley State University. The golf course was quite soggy, but the Rams pulled it off. These are two very big wins for the boys team, as Grandville and Hudsonville are sincere competitors for the league title.   Rockford, with a score of 162, was led by Davison with 38, followed by Chaffee (40), Gallup (42) and Mette (42). Grandville scored 167, with Warren Grover leading their team with 37. Hudsonville followed with a score of 168, with their team being led by Alex Fleming (39).   On Saturday, May 2, the Rams made a valiant effort of defending their home course at the Rockford Rams Invitational held at Braeside Golf Club. The Rams finished second behind only Forest Hills Central, who may be ranked number one shortly in Division I golf. Three Rams medaled, with Davison finishing third, Gallup fourth, and Conroy tied for 15th. Next on the schedule for the Rams is a match against Grand Haven and West Ottawa at Braeside Golf Club on Monday, May 11 at 3:30 p.m.
