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.

Christopher Wilkins, Staff Writer

Whats up! My name is Christopher Wilkins and I am a Junior this year at Tyrone Area High School. This is my first year working for the Eagle Eye. I am a member of the Tyrone’s varsity golf team and plan to write a few stories about the team this year. I’m not a really big fan of school but I plan on attending Penn State after high school to further my knowledge in business and accounting. I have 4 pets at home: I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I’m definitely more of a cat person than a dog person. Some more things about me: I love to play video games and hang out friends in my freetime. I own an Xbox one and my gamertag is Bloodbear88. Add me!
