Mona Shores junior golfer Reed Hrynewich had a ‘super’ season on the golf course this spring.
Hrynewich was named to the Super Team by the Michigan Interscholastic Golf Coaches Association. In all, eight players statewide were named to the Super Team.
Other first-team honorees from the area included Spring Lake’s Marcus Fry, a senior, Derek Jacobson, a senior from Whitehall and a pair of juniors from Western Michigan Christian, Alec Breit and Henry McGannon.
Earning all-academic honors was Nicolas Parnell from Spring Lake. Muskegon Catholic’s team also received all-academic honors.
“This season was a lot of fun because we have a great group of guys and a solid team,” Hrynewich said. “We all return next year so we’re hoping for an even better season.”
While all the Shores golfers return, Coach Tom Wilson is not. He retired recently after a long, successful career at the Sailors’ coach.
“It will be a little different without Coach T because of his experience and care for his players.”
Hrynewich was honored to make the Super Team, but he has his sights set on one more thing.
“I am happy getting Super Team, but my goal is Mr. Golf,” the son of Tim and Susan Hrynewich said. “So, I guess that will be the goal for next season.”
Sam Weatherhead, a junior from Grand Rapids West Catholic, was named Mr. Golf.
And there’s no slowing down for Hrynewich, or his twin sister Hailey. Both leave on Sunday to play in the Coca Cola AJGA event in Boyne City Sunday through Thursday.
