Course control: Rodgers’ 74 not enough as Saegertown takes home match

VENANGO — Another golf match, another solid outing for Cambridge Springs senior Trevor Rodgers.

Rodgers shot a medalist round of 74, but it was Saegertown that proved to be too much on the links Tuesday as the Panthers won the Region 4 mega match over Union City, Cambridge Springs and Maplewood at Venango Valley Golf Course.

The Panthers finished with a 359, followed by Union City (364), Cambridge Springs (367) and Maplewood (455).

Leading the charge for Saegertown was Jake Sada, who posted a 79, the second lowest score of the afternoon. Greg Beers followed with an 85, while Ricky Kanline (95) and Joey Boylan (100) rounded out the winning effort.

Union City’s Matt Lowther shot the low round for the Bears with an 87, with Troy Jackson (92) Ryan Thomas (92) and J.T. Daggett (93) contributing to the second-place effort.

For the Spa, Rodgers’ 74 was followed by  Kurtis Tucci with a 90, Jarred Ferris with a 100, and Jake Kuhn with a 103.

Rounding out the field was Maplewood, Carl Douglas’ 95 was the lowest score for the the Tigers.

Bulldogs edge Warren

RUSSELL — The Meadville boys golf team posted another strong collective effort Tuesday as the Bulldogs combined for a 322, narrowly defeating Warren by one stroke during Region 3 action at Blueberry Hills Golf Course.

Warren finished with a 323, followed by Slippery Rock (330), Grove City (343) and Oil City (345).

Charlie Holt led the charge for Meadville, carding a 77, closely followed by Dalton Zelasco who finished with a 78. Kyle Luben chipped in an 82 and Matt Burchard shot an 85 to help the Bulldogs to the win.

Warren was just one shot off the pace thanks to a medalist round of 74 shot by Nathan Sandberg. Andrew Gignac had a strong round as well, carding a 76 for Warren.

Eagles snag Muskies

JAMESTOWN — Jamestown’s Jake Reaugh held court on his home turf, shooting a medalist round of 40 at Tucker’s Golf Course at Pleasant Acres.

However, it was Conneaut coming away with the team victory, beating the Muskies 177-193 on Tuesday.

The Eagles enjoyed a tight grouping in scores. Jake Yeager led the way with a 43. He was followed closely by Kyler Betts with a 44 and Cole Baker, Randy Santarelli and Jack Benfield with rounds of 45.

Jamestown’s second lowest was Chris Shultz with a 45.

Conneaut is back in action on Monday with a rare golf doubleheader. The Eagles will finish up a couple holes at a rain-delayed Region 7 mega match at Culbertson Hills Golf Resort at 2 p.m., then will board a bus for McDowell’s Whispering Woods Golf Course to start a new nine-hole mega match at 4 p.m.

Poll

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
