BIG RAPIDS – Golf season has ended, as winter weather begins settling in, and it was a memorable one for Big Rapids’ Makenna Currie.This was her sophomore season. She played golf last year and moved into the top five this season for a Cardinal team which was No. 2 in the Central State Activities Association.
“It went really well, I think,” she said, adding she received all-conference honorable mention honors.
She had a 104.2 average for nine holes.
“Makenna made a lot of progress this year,” Big Rapids coach Mark Posey said. “She worked hard to earn her honorable mention all-conference award.”
Her brother Dawson Currie, was a former standout for the boys team.
Currie said breaking 100 three times this season was a highlight. A 93 was her best score for 18 holes.
“I was doing very well with my drivers and my fairway shots, she said, adding she was working at improving on her putting.
Currie indicated she played a lot of golf coming into the season.
“We had a great season,” she said. “We had two seniors (Kiali Stout and Emily Mathewson) who are going and they did really well this year as well. We played well as a team.”
Currie indicated she’ll play as much golf as she can during the offseason to get ready for the fall of 2022.
Golf has been a family sport of sorts for many years, Currie noted, adding she followed in her brother’s footsteps.
“I like being outside and enjoying nature,” she said.
