Tollinger, Diaz medal at UCBAC golf tournaments
Bohemia Manor senior Hunter Tollinger and Elkton senior Genesis Diaz both earned medalist honors Tuesday while competing in the Chesapeake and Susquehanna Division championships, respectively.
Tollinger fired a 41, finishing one stroke ahead of Harford Tech’s Josh Kopeck for the top score at the upper division tournament held at Bulle Rock Golf Course in Aberdeen.
“He caught a bad break on the first hole and that led to a double bogey for his start, but then he went on to play the next three holes at only 3-over par,” Eagles coach Keven Lemerand said. “What impressed me was that on the hardest course that we play all year, and in conditions that were very difficult—probably 25 mph winds— and for him to bounce back from that double bogey and play the final holes like he did, that’s a testament to his mental part of his game.
“He didn’t get down, he stayed with it, played it one shot at a time and was able to post a good score.”
In addition to Tollinger, Will Smethurst fired a 50, Stephen Lemerand and Jacob Cotero both shot 52s and Jeremy Nettles ended with a 56 to round out the scoring for Bo Manor, which placed sixth with 251 points.
Perryville, the other Cecil County team competing in the tournament, ended in fourth place with 241 points.
Josh Eldreth produced a 45, Matt Mannone added a 46 and Justin Eldreth and Jordyn Pollitt both fired 49s, while Matthew O’Neill recorded a 52 for the Panthers.
Led by Kopeck, the Cobras placed first with 237 points.
Across the Susquehanna River, Diaz collected female medalist honors after firing a 44 during the Susquehanna Division Tournament at Patriot’s Glen National Golf Club in Elkton.
It marked the second straight season Diaz earned top female honors at the lower division meet.
“She played well,” Golden Elks coach Seth Grimes said of Diaz. “I was proud of her resolve through the entire round, even when things did not go her way. She kept an even keel and stayed strong to medal again this year.”
Cadan Harteen and Tyjuan Hall both shot 59s and Nick Gregson, Brady O’Neill and Ben Darylmple all fired 60s to complete the scoring for Elkton, which finished with 282 points.
North East grabbed the top spot among the three participating Cecil County squads, earning third place after shooting a combined score of 263.
“Overall we played decent, but not as well as we could have,” North East coach Mark McCoy said. “We struggled with course management and club selection today. The course conditions plus a little wind made it a little more tricky.”
Luke Riley led the way with a 47 and Zach Bryan added a 49, while Zach Lockard shot a 51 and Kasey Barrow and Abby Pinkerton both ended with 58s for the Indians.
Robbie Stickley shot a 57, Trent Moore added a 58 and Ben Graybeal added a 59, while Chuckie Martin fired a 61 and Troy Boggs ended with a 66 for Rising Sun, which completed a team score of 301.
Sean Powers fired the round’s top score with a 41 for Patterson Mill, which won the tournament with a team score of 228.
