Rozzi leads local contingent at junior college golf nationals
Butler County Community College's Michael Rozzi led a local quartet with a tie for 21st overall at the National Junior College Athletic Association's Division III championship tournament this past week at Chautauqua Golf Club in Chautauqua, N.Y.
The Neshannock grad carded a pair of 79s and two 80s in four rounds and finished 30-over par.
The national champion finished at 5-over.
Gateway graduate Ryan Skladany, representing CCAC Boyce, had a personal-best 80 in round three and finished tied for 50th (49-over).
Butler CCC's Noah Morgan (Allegheny-Clarion grad) had a top score of 79 in round two and finished 59th at 58-over.
Scott Myshin, a Monessen grad, represented Westmoreland County Community College and finished one spot behind Morgan in 60th. His best score was an 82 in the third round.
The four local golfers qualified for the national championships after faring well at the Region XX tournament last month at the Links at Spring Church in Apollo.
Skladany won the event, Myshin placed third, and Trozzi and Morgan also were individual qualifiers.
Region XX team champion, Anne Arundel (Md.) Community College, placed 10th in the team standings at nationals.
