Seven area collegiate golfers wrapped up the spring season Friday at the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division III National Championship at Chautauqua Golf Club in Chautauqua, N.Y.

Butler County Community College’s Noah Morgan, an Allegheny-Clarion Valley grad, led the way with a tie for 20th out of 90 golfers with a four-round total of 318 (30 over). He finished one stroke away from an All-American spot that goes to the top 18 in the final standings.

Morgan’s BCCC teammate, Tucker Skerbetz (Laurel High School), finished 36th (37 over). Carmen Oliva (Neshannock), also from BCCC, placed 42nd.

Luke Ostermeyer (Laurel) and Tyler Johnson (Armstrong) ended the four-day event in 76th and 79th, respectively.

CCAC-Boyce’s Ryan Skladany (Gateway), golfing at the national tournament for the second consecutive year, completed his four rounds tied for 48th (43 over).

He and Morgan had the best single rounds of the tournament among the local competitors. Both shot 75 in the third round Thursday.

CCAC-North’s Max Reda (New Brighton) made his nationals debut and tied for 72nd. He carded a 78 in third round.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
