Misko Claims Junior Stroke Play
Posted: June 22nd, 2016
Cathedral Prep senior to be, Ryan Misko, has claimed the 2016 Junior Stroke Play Championship which completed play today at Union City Country Club. Misko improved two strokes from his first day total of 79 to claim a single stroke victory over Harborcreek graduate and future Allegheny Gator golfer Jake Van Slyke. Van Slyke appeared to be in command until a final hole double bogey opened the door for Misko who’s par was good enough for the win.
In age group action, it was North East sophomore Alec Hite claiming top honors by way of a two day total of 162 (78 84) and cruised to an 8 stroke victory in the Boys 13 to 15 age group. In the boys 10 to 12 group, Kyle Westfall raced to a ten shot lead after day one and posted the wire to wire win with a two day total of 180 (87 – 93) easily ahead of the rest of the division.
McDowell’s Tori Berlin held on to her three stroke lead after day one when she and Warren’s Rachel Wilson matched cards with twin 86’s in the final round. Berlin captured the girls 16 and older group by three strokes.
Finally, Lydia Swan followed a first round 83 with a second round 84 in claiming the girls 15 and under group by 8 strokes over Sarah White.
The juniors return to action next Tuesday when the Erie Sport Store Flagship City Junior Tour heads to Mound Grove Golf course. Play gets underway via shotgun start at 8:30am.
