Whitehall falls just short in tourney

GOLF Steven GosselinSix strokes was all that separated Whitehall from an Adirondack League Championship.

The Railroaders finished fourth at the league tournament, held last Friday at Cronin’s Golf Resort in Warrensburg.

Whitehall finished with a score of 207, five strokes behind Fort Ann and six strokes behind Hadley-Luzerne and Fort Edward.

Although it finished with a identical score of 207, Lake George won the championship based on its 3.5 to 1.5 victory over Hadley Luzerne in the championship round.

Fort Edward’s Zach Burkhart Hadley Luzerne’s Scott Broekhuizen and Matt Waterhouse earned medalist honors, shooting a 44. Cullen Flynn shot a team-best 45 for Whitehall.

Whitehall had a chance to win the regular season title last Wednesday at home against Fort Ann, but fell to the Cardinals 3.5 to 1.5.

Whitehall’s Chad Amerio defeated Fort Ann’s Jared Goodemate 3 and 1 and Garrett Steves finished in a tie with Jake Edwards.

Whitehall finished the season with a 7-3 record, good for second best in the Adirondack League.

Flynn was scheduled to compete at the Section II tournament yesterday in Ballston Spa. Robbie Pereau just missed out qualifying for the tournament.
