Written by Joe Koch on .

Three golfers from North-area WPIAL schools and one golfer from City League school Perry will be competing in the PIAA Western Regional on Wednesday morning at Tom's Run Golf Course in Blairsville.

Patrick Sheerer, a senior from Fox Chapel, was the No. 5 qualifier from the WPIAL, with a 1-over-par round of 71 at the WPIAL Class AAA championship at Diamond Run Golf Club on Oct. 2.

He'll be joined by Mars senior Josh Bartley and Shady Side Academy sophomore Jack Katarincic, who placed 12th and 13th, respectively. Bartley shot a 6-over-par round of 76. Katarincic was one stroke behind.

Joe Doubt, a freshman from Perry, is the City League's lone representative at the regional event. He shot rounds of 83 and 87 to win the City League's two-day tournament at North Park with a total of 170, 21 strokes ahead of the runner-up.
