Dylan Harwood (in red) will be representing Hornell at the Section V Class A Tournament at Clifton Springs Country Club on Saturday.

CALEDONIA — Caledonia Country Club was the host for the LCAA Golf Qualifier. The par 72 course was playing fast on Wednesday afternoon.

The top 10 players qualify for the individual sectional tournament Saturday at Clifton Springs CC.

Tyler Koch, a 9th-grader from Caledonia-Mumford was the medalist shooting 78. He was steady all day shooting 3 over par on both nines. Le Roy senior Brady Fix was second with a 79, just missing a putt on the last hole that would have tied him for the low score.

Ethan Provino from Mount Morris shot 79 as well, rallying with a one under 34 on his second nine after a slow start. Tom Keysa from Livonia was alone in 4th place with a steady 86. Four players tied for spots 5-8 with an 89.

James Hy of Geneseo, Wyatt Rodbourn of Bath, Mitch Mattice of Cal-Mum and Nick Coyle of Livonia all shot 89. Dylan Harwood of Hornell and Chris Coyle of Livonia grabbed the last 2 spots by shooting 90.

Avoca/Prattsburgh 4, Bolivar-Richburg 1

The lone win for the Wolverines (6-7) came at second doubles, when the team of Dylan Crawford and Kayley Putnam-Bacon collected the win via forfeit.
