Belle Vernon Area's Michael Lubrani and Elizabeth Forward's Mike Ragan are in.

But BVA's Alex Bates and Zach Cicchini and EF's Pat McCall came up just short.

That was the story at Tuesday's WPIAL Class AAA Division 1 Section 2 Individual Qualifier at Duck Hollow Golf Course.

Lubrani, a freshman, and Ragan, a junior, were among five players to qualify as a result of their rounds. Lubrani shot 38-41-79 to finish third on the par 72 course while Ragan (39-42-81) was fourth.

To qualify for the AAA semis, players had to shoot 82 or better, or finish in the top five.

Meanwhile, Bates (40-45-85) finished two shots out of the running in sixth place, while Cicchini (42-44-86) and McCall (38-48-86) were three shots back as they finished tied for seventh.

EF's Brendan Delbianco (47-44-91) finished 13th, while BVA's Frank Guarinoni (44-50-94) was 15th.

Ringgold's top finisher was Neil Hancock (48-49-97), who tied for 17th. Teammate Chris Essey (43-56-99) tied for 20th.

Uniontown's Luke Wallace and Laurel Highlands' Harrison Laskey tied for first, both shooting 36-37-73 to finish six strokes ahead of Lubrani.

The fifth qualifier is Albert Gallatin's Tanner Kutek (41-42-83).

Lubrani and Ragan will advance to the WPIAL Class AAA semifinals to be held Tuesday at either Youghiogheny Country Club or Hannastown Country Club.

The WPIAL AAA championships will be Oct. 2 at Diamond Run.
