The Caledonia varsity boys golf team competed at Thornapple Pointe this past Tuesday in the OK Red Postseason Tournament. There was a lot at stake for four of the teams in the OK Red. Heading into the tournament, there were two teams tied for 1st in the conference, Rockford & Hudsonville, and two teams tied for 3rd in the conference, Caledonia & West Ottawa. Hudsonville won its 2nd straight OK Red conference title with a 1st place finish at the tournament. Caledonia and West Ottawa shot the same score, a 328, so as usual, we went to the 5th scorer, which was a 92, shot by both WO and Cal players, so we went to the 6th scorer to determine the tie-breaker. Both 6th players shot a 97. Because this was for 3rd place, there was no tie-breaker, so Caledonia and West Ottawa took a T4 finish at the OK Red Postseason Tournament. Postseason Tournament Results: 1st - Hudsonville: 317 2nd - Rockford: 321 3rd - Grandville: 327 4th - Caledonia: 328 4th - West Ottawa: 328 6th - Grand Haven: 333 7th - East Kentwood: 357 8th - Jenison: 382 Individual Scores: Sam Baldwin: 76 Jacob Byanski: 80 Parker Little: 83 Noah Abdlekader: 89 Dylan Meduna: 92 Lukas Keson: 97 OK Red Conference Recap: The OK Red conference title is determined by the 8 jamborees, midseason tournament & postseason tournament.
