Fox Chapel senior Anthony Cordaro may not have been credited with first place Tuesday at the WPIAL Class 3A boys semifinal at Hannastown Golf Club in Greensburg, but his round of 72 matched the total shot by Franklin Regional sophomore Palmer Jackson.
Cordaro is quite familiar with championship golf, and he will likely have plenty in store for the other 35 members of the championship field that gathers next week at Oakmont Country Club.
Several other North-area golfers also qualified for the championship from Hannastown with places and rounds in parentheses. They include Seneca Valley junior Adam Bushee (4th-73), Fox Chapel senior Alex Lawson (7th-74), North Allegheny junior Luke Minsky (8th-74), Shaler junior Tanner Grzegorczyk (10th-75), North Allegheny senior Kyle Dewey (11th-75), Fox Chapel sophomores Grant Thiele (12th-75) and Gregor Meyer (13th-76), Pine-Richland senior Jack Kremer (14th-76)and North Allegheny senior Ryan Dougherty (18th-76).
Hampton's Huber third at semifinal: Hampton High senior Ben Huber has enjoyed a solid career for the Talbots, and he likely will display another solid effort at next week's Class AAA boys golf championship at Oakmont Country Club. Huber placed third at Tuesday's semifinal at Cranberry Highlands Golf Club with a -3over-par round of 73. Shady Side Academy freshman Brice Delaney also moved on to the final by placing 14th with a round of 78.
