There was a three-way tie for second at 78 including Mason Staub, Zach Dixon and Andrew Davis. Davis, a recent Eastern York grad, won the season-opening event last week at Valley Green. Dixon will be a senior at Eastern in the fall, while Staub will be a senior at Spring Grove.

No other golfers could break 80 in the Boys' 15-18 Blue Division.

Dominic Ferro won the Boys' 15-18 White Division. Ferro and Devin Peart each shot 81s, but Ferro won on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. Jun Lee, who won the season-opening YCJGA White Division event, finished third at 83.
