Over at Fox Ridge Golf Club in Dike, two members of the Pella Christian boys’ golf team attempted to make it to state as individuals. Unfortunately, Graham Howerzyl and Mitch Fopma came up only a few strokes shy, but both turned in their season-best performances. Graham Howerzyl led the tandem of Eagles with a round of 77, good for a tie for seventh place, while Mitch Fopma shot a 79 to tie for 12th overall. Fopma is a senior and he will be graduating today, and Howerzyl is only a junior and will return to the boys’ golf squad as a 12th grader next season.
