ACME — You've got to start somewhere.

Cadillac's girls golf team got its first taste of competition with the John Lober Classic Monday and Tuesday at Grand Traverse Resort.

The 29-team event features some of the top programs in the state.

Flint Powers won the Division 3 & 4 portion of the event with a two-day total of 717. Big Rapids was second at 733 and Marshall third at 734.

Cadillac shot a 940 but on the bright side, improved by 19 strokes from Monday to Tuesday.

"The girls had a great time and played great for their first-ever tournament," Cadillac coach Brandon Bailey said. "It's a great learning experience for our team. For some, it was their first-ever 18 holes and tournament.

"We are excited to talk about the results and see how to get better at practice."

Junior Madi Drabik paced the Vikings with a pair of 104s.
