The Red Devil Girls Golf Team has All Conference Golfers - Hannah Fortune (91) and Lila Kelly (99) are All Conference. WAY TO GO! The team took 3rd Place in a tough Lake Michigan Conference at Twin Birch Golf Course In Kalkaska. For the second year in a row the Red Devil Girls Golf team made the top 3. The girls started out slow - but put more pressure on the teams as they made the turn on the last 9 holes. These girls are getting ready for Regionals and have a big goal in their sights. Congrats and Go Red Devils!
And here's the Court showing their Rhyme Without Reason attire.
