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

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.

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.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.

  • Watson pulls away at Augusta to win second green jacket

    One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
    All he cared about was slipping into that green jacket.
    Instead of hitting a 40-yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines — the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago — the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three-shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15-foot birdie putt.
