Boys’ golf

St. Joseph’s heading to PIAA state tournament

ROARING SPRING The St. Joseph’s boys’ golf team punched its ticket Thursday to the PIAA state team tournament on Oct. 25.

The Wolves beat out Rockwood, 332 to 345, in the Class 2A District 5-6 Sub-Regional at Iron Master’s Country Club. Matt Steyers shot a course-best 76, while Jack Mangene followed behind with an 83. Ryan Peachey carded an 86 and two SJCA teammates — RJ Marsh and Adam Kurtz — both had 87s.

The setup was for five golfers on each team to compete with four counting toward the scoring.

“It was an awesome team effort today,” SJCA athletic director Chad Walsh said. “When one guy would have an ‘off’ hole, the next would put up a great score. The guys can not wait for the state tournament, and I can’t wait to see what else they can do.”

Mangene will also play Monday in the regional tournament at Tom’s Run for a shot at a spot in the individual state tournament on Oct. 23 and 24.
