October 10, 2013The Grosse Pointe South girls' golf team had a quite a few days last week.
Head coach Mike Rennell and the Blue Devils won the Macomb Area Conference Red Division regular season title, crushing Romeo 161-210 as senior Tenley Shield paved the way with a 1-under 35.
Two days later, South won the Red Division Tournament at Forest Akers West in East Lansing. The Blue Devils fired a 357 and second-place Port Huron Northern was a distant second with a 380.
Shield was the medalist, shooting a 72 even par. Also, Shield and Lily Pendy were named First Team All-Division, while Ally Dalman and Lucy Buzolits were named Honorable Mention All-Division.
After taking second in both dual matches and in the league tournament to Utica in 2012, there was no question South's goal was to reclaim the top spot in the MAC Red, which it did with an exclamation mark on the end.
Coming up for the Blue Devils is a Division 1 regional tournament Friday, Oct. 11, at Dearborn Country Club.
Joining the Blue Devils in the regional are Bloomfield Hills, Dearborn, Detroit Cass Tech, Fraser, Macomb Dakota, L'Anse Creuse North, Utica Ford, Sterling Heights Stevenson, Troy, Troy Athens, Utica and West Bloomfield.
The state finals are set for Friday, Oct. 18, and Saturday, Oct. 19.
