On in one, Mike Nagy watches as his golf ball comes within inches of a birdie on the par-three number 5 hole at Indian Lake. The Manistique Emerald boys and girls golf teams battled their way to victory in Manistique Monday.

The boys edged out their guests by one stroke, winning the triangular match with a team score 178. Munising captured second with 179 and Gwinn finished with 187.

The Emeralds’ Mike Nagy medaled in the match, finishing the front nine at the Indian Lake Golf and Country Club with an even par 36.

While Nagy turned in the day’s best score, it was the consistent play by his teammates that helped the Emeralds avenge a one-stroke loss to the Mustangs in Munising last season.

In addition to Nagy’s low card 36, Nick LaFave turned in a 44, Josh Hentschell 49, Zack Powers 59 and Nathan Rahn 51.

It was a also one-stroke victory for the Manistique girls.

Behind low card 53s by Hailey Hoholik and Steph Halpin, the girls held on the beat Munising 233 to 234.

Emily Wilson turned in a 66 for Manistique, Breanna Bosanic 65 and Kylie Bowers 62.

Manistique will host Westwood and Menominee next Monday.
