Laurel sophomore Evan Long placed third with a 6-over-par round of 78, but there definitely will be a Burgettstown flavor at next month's PIAA Western Regional at Tom's Run Golf Course in Blairsville.
That's because three Blue Devils finished among the top 16 qualifiers to qualify for the West Regional that will be played on Oct. 16.
The unique aspect about the Burgettstown qualifiers is that two of them don't even attend the school.
Sophomore Austin Lis placed fifth with a 9-over-par round of 81. He is a student at neighboring Avella High School. Burgettstown and Avella are in the third year of a cooperative arrangement where Avella students can play on the Blue Devils' golf team.
