Simply the best: GRCC golfers claim top five season scores in MCCAA Western Conference

Five members of the undefeated Grand Rapids Community College golf team posted the top five scores in the conference for the season, and were named to the All-Conference team by the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.

The GRCC team clinched the MCCAA Western Conference crown, easily topping Muskegon Community College, and now looks to postseason action.

“This was an historic season,” Interim Athletic Director David Selmon said. “GRCC student-athletes worked hard, were prepared and dominated this season. They earned these honors. My congratulations to them as well as coach John Forton and our Athletic Department staff on a job well done.”

Arie Jackman of Caledonia led all golfers in the conference with a season score of 379 strokes, followed by Dominic Luciani of East Grand Rapids, with 384, Tyler Hausserman from Ionia with 389, Logan Templeton of Portage with 397, and Davis Courtright from Zeeland with 401.

Muskegon’s Zach Petroski followed Courtright by 10 strokes and was the only non-Raider to earn conference honors.

Every member of the team is a freshman.

The golfers are in action next in a non-conference Kirtland Community College Invitational in Grayling on Friday. The team then will prepare for the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XII Championship tournament starting on May 11 at Bedford Valley Golf Club in Battle Creek.

The six members of the golf team stand on either side of coach John Forton; all wear masks.
