Hanover-Horton golfers to defend state title

Jack Brockie of Hanover-Horton High School earned medalist honors with a 37 at the first Cascades Conference jamboree at Lakeland Hills Golf Course.   By Jeff Steers JTV Sports   Brockies and Spinks. The two families – sometimes forged into one – have carried the Hanover-Horton High School boys’ golf program the last decade. That came to a culmination last year when the Comets won the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 3 state title in a classic battle with Big Rapids. The Comets will hope to defend that state title beginning in May and June, but they will be without a Spink on the team for the first time in a number of years. Winning a state title in 2018 will have to suffice for now. “Earning a state title with that group was a better feeling than winning any individual tournament,” HHHS Coach Mike Brockie said. “Having three nephews and one son on the team made it special. “Winning like we did also gave us an appreciation for the fifth man on the team.” Both teams tied with identical scores for two days last year in the state final at Forest Akers West near the campus of Michigan…

Cascades Conference golf to pilot scoring application

Photo courtesy iWanamaker.com   By Jeff Steers JTV Sports   The Cascades Conference is expected to be one of the leagues that will pilot a mobile application technology allowing golfers, coaches and fans to view live leaderboards during events. The idea came from a Michigan High School Athletic Association golf council meeting attended by East Jackson High School golf Coach Ray Hill. The longtime golf coach said the recommendation to try such a system by council members. Last May three schools “came out of nowhere to qualify for the state meet,” Hill said. “There was a serious suspicion of stroke shaving was going on,” Hill said. “It knocked a number of teams out of the state meet.” iWanamaker Golf combines desktop and mobile application technology to allow golfers to view live leaderboards during events and tournaments. It also gives charities and fundraising organizations a way to increase revenue by selling live leaderboard sponsorships to supporters. With just a few mouse clicks, tournament could be using iWanamaker's real-time scoring and leaderboards. Hill said the technology is free to coaches and players, and parents and supporters have a chance to purchase information from the application for $25 per season or $5 per…

Rand succeeds on, off the track at Lumen Christi

Lumen Christi Catholic School track and field runner Allison Rand won the 1,600-meter run Wednesday during a meet at Northwest High School   By Jeff Steers JTV Sports   Lumen Christi Catholic High School runner Allison Rand has learned to see the potential in other people during her four years on the cross country and track and field teams. She learned it from the best. Rand has been part of three all-state relay teams and last year left the Michigan High School Athletic Association state track and field meet with a pair of medals. The Titans won the 1,600-meter relay and she finished third individually in the 800-meter run. She is proud of the winning relay team. “In track and field and cross country I have learned to see the potential in other people and that helped our relay team,” Rand said. “I learned that from Coach Mike Woolsey. “He sees the potential in each runner … even before they know or believe it.” Rand combined with freshman Renae Kutcha, and seniors Marilyn Schonhard and Audrey Warriner to win the 1,600-meter relay at the state meet in 4 minutes, 1 second. Kutcha went on to win the 400-meter run for…

NW Runner a ‘Case’ of Superstition, Selflessness and Success

Jalen Case, center, battles runners from Harper Creek and Lumen Christi Catholic high school during a meet Wednesday at Northwest High School.  Photo by Jeff Steers, JTV Sports. By Jeff Steers JTV Sports Northwest High School track and field Coach Brad Buter recently needed someone to help his 800-meter relay team. He turned to runner Jalen Case to work with the other three participants on various aspects of setting up blocks, getting the handoffs correct and other key components of producing a successful relay team. That kind of selflessness has helped Case – and other Mountie runners – look forward to good things this spring in track and field. Case was a three-time medalist at the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 2 state track and field finals a year ago. The now-senior finished sixth in the 100-meter dash (11.34 seconds), sixth in the 200-meter dash (22.43), and was a member of the 800-meter relay team that finished seventh as a team. But the runner finds happiness helping others learn and enjoy the sport of track and field. Case is currently working with the relay team and helping a special needs student to become a hurdler. “I find happiness in…
