Fisch advances from boys golf sectional
Franklin Regional junior golfer Matt Fisch moved on from the Section 4-AAA qualifier at Meadowink Golf Course by shooting a 7-over round of 79, which hit the target score to advance exactly.
Fisch was the only Panthers golfer to advance, and one of eight overall to shoot 79 or better. He took advantage of a 37 on the front nine to post his qualifying score.
Fisch moved on to the WPIAL semifinal at The Links at Spring Church that was scheduled to be played Tuesday, after this edition's deadline.
Also competing at the sectional for Franklin Regional were Eddie Zhang (81), Aaron Fallat (83), Hassan Chughtai (89), Nate Hlozek (94) and Mike Gabrin (94).
