Niles qualifies for state finals

NILES — The Niles golf team finished second at the Division 3 Regional at Lake Doster in Plainwell on Thursday.

Marshall won the regional championship with a score of 366, while the Vikings were second with a 402 and Plainwell third with a 408.

The top three finishers at the regionals advance to the state finals at Forest Akers East on the campus of Michigan State University Friday and Saturday.

The Vikings were led to victory by senior Aynslee Myer, who shot an 83, which was the second lowest round of the regional out of 57 players.

“Although it was the toughest conditions we played in this season and one of the toughest courses we played on, the girls had an outstanding day,” said Niles coach Dan Brawley. “With a high of 48 degrees and 20 mph wind conditions, the girls never complained. I’m very proud of these young ladies.”

Niles also got score of 103 from senior Katie Bruckner, 106 and 110 from junior sisters Skyler and Willow Brawley, along with a 117 from sophomore Maddie Lister.
