The roster bio for St. Vincent golfer Tim Barto says he has a “repeatable, compact swing.”

Barto helped his team have a repeatable season.

Barto, a Kittanning graduate, shot a fourth-round and team-best 76 to lead the Bearcats to their second straight Presidents' Athletic Conference championship.

Barto finished tied for fifth overall individually with teammate Micah Markantone at Cedarbrook Golf Course (Gold Course) in Rostraver.

St. Vincent advanced to the NCAA Division III Championships May 13-16 at Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C.

Last season, Barto was the second-leading tournament scorer for the Bearcats (76.7).

Another local member of the team is sophomore Jack Boros (Knoch).
