While OPRF’s entire boys golf team missed making the cut by just a few strokes at the Mt. Carmel Sectional on Monday, three players shot well enough to advance on to the Class 3A State Tournament.
Alex Decorrevont shot a 74 at Glenwoodie Golf Club in Glenwood, while Eric Cybulski and Joe McKune both finished with 78s and advanced on after competing in a six-man playoff for the last four spots.
The Huskies finished fourth as a team with a final score of 312. New Trier won the sectional with a 302. OPRF’s cross-town rival Fenwick finished eighth overall and did not advance a player to state.
The Class 3A State Tournament begins Friday at The Den at Fox Creek Golf Course in Bloomington.
The Friars blanked St. Patrick 3-0 behind the scoring of Justin Giacotto. The junior scored two goals in the win, while Austin Nelson added one. Albano Latifi dished out two assists for the Friars, who pushed their record to 10-8-1.
Fenwick closes out the regular season at De La Salle on Thursday.
