Golf Team Prevails Through Sectionals but Falls at Districts

Senior Andrew Ferguson placed third overall and has qualified for regionals on October 15


Last Thursday, the golf team went to the Summit Country Club and placed 2nd to move onto Districts, but failed to place first at districts to move on to states.

“Most of the kids did not play well so the fact that we did not perform our best and still made it was a good feeling,” said senior Andrew Ferguson.

At sectionals last Thursday, the golf team placed 3rd out of 5 teams to advance to districts.

Ferguson took first place individually and led the team with a 73, followed up by junior Brent Mcneel who also qualified for districts individually with an 87. One stroke behind McNeel was sophomore Jake Taylor, who qualified for districts individually with a 88. Lastly, junior Trey Kyle shot 103.

“It felt good to win sectionals, and it was a good confidence boost going into districts,” said Ferguson.

On Monday, the team had high hopes heading to Scotch Valley Country Club to try and make it to states as a team. Only the first place team advances through districts to states.

The team gave it their best, but fell short to Saint Joseph’s, who beat them by 35 strokes; Saint Joseph’s 320, Tyrone 355.

Once again, Ferguson led the team with a 78. Taylor shot a 83. McNeel shot a 95 and senior Sam Ayers shot 99.

Ferguson placed 3rd, which qualifies him to go to regional on October 15th. If Ferguson makes it through regional, then he will go to the Pennsylvania state championship for the second year in a row.

“It’s a great feeling to be able to go to regional all four years. Hopefully I can make it to states like last year,” said Ferguson.
