BRONSON, MI. – The start to the spring season has not been kind to the Big 8 conference in terms of their golfing schedule, playing absolute havoc with the schedule from the word go. The teams from around the conference finally got some beautiful weather on Thursday however as the teams traveled to Bella Vista Golf Course in Bronson for the second Big 8 Jamboree of the season.
For the second time this season it was Quincy leading the pack as the Orioles took home the jamboree win with a score of 183. The Orioles finished five strokes ahead of the runner-up team from Jonesville who finished in second place with a score of 188, while Union City finished in third place with a score of 215. Homer came into the clubhouse in fourth place with a score of 236, followed by Springport in fifth place with a score of 281.
The Bronson Vikings and the Concord Yellow Jackets made the trip to Bella Vista for the jamboree but were unable to field a full team. The Reading Rangers do not have a golf program this season.
Quincy’s win was bolstered by an all-around team effort as all four scores used for team standings were inside the top 10 for the jamboree. Leading the way for the Orioles was senior Sam Sawyer who earned co-Medalist honors with Jonesville’s Zachary Mains after shooting a low round of 41.
Also adding to the Quincy effort was Dave Milliman with a 44, good enough for a tie for third place; Braylon Estlow and Chase Walters with identical scores of 49, putting them in a tie for sixth place; Keegan Neely with a 57; and Caleb Bostic with a 60.
The Union City Chargers finished in third place at the jamboree and were led on the day by Carter Krummrey who fired off a 49, good enough for a tie for sixth place. Also pacing the Charger effort was Logan Mears with a 54; Jeremy Zehr and Grady Iobe with a 56; Landyn Crance with a 58; and Max Bigelow with a 60.
The Bronson Vikings were only able to bring three golfers to the jamboree, coming up just one player short of qualifying for the team standings. Leading the way for Bronson was Carson Norton who fired off a 49, putting him in a tie for sixth place. Also playing well for Bronson was Nic Cranson with a 52 and Matthew Blankenship with a 69.
The Quincy Orioles are now 2-0 in the Big 8 as they have won both jamborees so far this year. The teams will be back to work in the Big 8 on Friday when they travel to Jonesville’s White Oaks Golf Club for the third jamboree of the season.
