Hawks Off to a Flying Start

The season is officially underway for the Henry Ford Hawks golf team. It began with the Kirtland Invitational held at Redwood Golf Course in Roscommon, MI. As a team the Hawks took third place out of nine schools with an overall score of 315(+27). They were edged by Mott and Oakland with respective scores of 293 and 299.

Leading the way for the Hawks was returning sophomore and state champ Jake Kieronski. With a score of 74(+2), he took seventh place individually. Giving Jake a run for his money was freshman Conner Greenlee out of Farmington High School with a 75(+3), taking eighth place. The team was capped off with two scores of 83(+11) by freshmen Trevor Monaco and Robert Salter, and with Logan Charlton coming in with a score of 93.

After two top ten finishes individually in the first event of the year, the Hawks looked to take it a step further in their next tournament. Jake Kieronski certainly did that by bringing home first place in the Wayne County Community College District Invitational at Rackham Golf Course in Huntington Woods, MI. By carding an incredible score of 70(-1), it looks like he is picking up right where he left off last season. The team again placed third in the event with an overall score of 314(+30). There were eight teams total.

The early season goal set by Coach Jim Uelmen was to stay competitive within the conference and throughout the first couple events and the Hawks are staying true to that. “Things are going well,” Uelmen added, and they will look to continue their success with only a few more events left in the fall portion of the season, including the invitational they will be hosting at The Lakes of Taylor Golf Club.
