The athletic season may be over for the Cedar Springs Lady golfers, but the post-season awards are still being handed out.  Nikki Bouwens earned All-State honors for Division 3.  Nikki is only the third golfer in Cedar Springs’ history to achieve such an award.

“Nikki had a fantastic season,” said Coach London. “She is a hard worker and shot very consistently over the year.”

Not only did Bouwens throw out some good golf scores, she also has some good scores in the classroom, as the Cedar Springs team took home an Academic All-State honor as well. As a team, the Red Hawks had a 3.53 GPA. The five golfers from regional who accumulated this score were Bouwens, Kaylee Costello, Zarah Smith, Jackie Champion and Chaya Coxon.

“Girls who do well in the classroom generally can do well on the golf course,” said London. “Golf is a thinking woman’s game.  These girls are smart and work hard both in the classroom and on the golf course.”

Congratulations, Nikki, and the whole girls golf team, on a great year in golf.

Girls golf team enjoys best season ever


The Cedar Springs Varsity Golf team finished up its best season in school history. The lady Red Hawks ended up 12th at the very competitive D3 state finals at the Meadows at  GVSU. Nikki Bouwens (80, 91 – 171); Kaylee Costello (108, 107 – 215); Zarah Smith (108, 113 -221); Jackie Champion (122, 116 – 238); Chaya Coxon (107, 133 – 240) were the five scorers for Cedar Springs.  Nikki’s 171 placed her 11th overall.

“We had a very solid day one,” said Coach Glen London. “We were only 10 strokes out of 4th place. Day two just took its toll.”

Regardless of the poor day two, the girls had a great season. They won the Chippewa Hills tournament, finished 2nd in the Ok-Blue, finished 2nd at Regional, and qualified as a team for the state tournament.  Congratulations, ladies.

Golf team heads to state


The Varsity Golf Team had some lows and highs this past week. On Tuesday, the Lady Red Hawks lost out to Forest Hills Northern by one stroke for the Ok-Blue Conference title. Nikki Bouwens was medalist with an 87, followed by Kaylee Costello with a 100 (5th place), and Chaya Coxon and Jackie Champion with 112s.

“That one stroke was a hard one to take,” said Costello. “Hopefully we can bounce back at Regional.”

And bounce back they did. The girls finished 2nd with a 397 at Katke in Big Rapids.  The top 3 teams in each regional advance to the state meet at the Meadows.  “The girls played really well.  I am proud of all five,” said Coach Glen London.

Nikki Bouwens was once again match medalist with an 80. “Nikki has been tough all season,” said London. “She has won three of the five tournaments that we have played at.” Jackie Champion had a season best 101, Zarah Smith a 105, and Kaylee Costello a 111 to round out the scoring (Coxon carded a 115).
