Herald staff

---- — BOYS GOLF

District 10 Qualifier

ä At The Country Club of Meadville’s par-72 layout, Hickory’s Billy Colbert carded medalist laurels, shooting a 75.

The top two Class AAA placewinners and the top 8 from Class AA qualify for the D-10 western regionals, Oct. 16 at Toms Run, Blairsville.

On Tuesday, Mercer senior Nate Guiler got in by virtue of his round of 83, good for a tie for 5th. He lost on the 4th hole of a scorecard tiebreaker, officially ending 6th, according to Mercer mentor Dick Griffith, who said,

“(Guiler) didn’t play as well as he can, but with the ground conditions from the recent rain, he played well enough to go to regionals. He’s the first representative in the western regional qualifier at Mercer in seven years.

“I’m pretty proud to be going down there with (Guiler) for the first time, and I’m really looking forward to the western regionals,” Griffith added.
