Fox Chapel Anthony Cordaro, who won the WPIAL Class AAA boys championship earlier this month at Latrobe Country Club, placed second this past Tuesday at the PIAA Class AAA Boys Western Regional at Tom's Run Golf Course in Blairsville with a 2-over-par round of 74.
Cordaro will play in the PIAA Class AAA Boys Championship that begins Monday and concludes Tuesday at York's Heritage Hills Resort. Joining him in the 36-hole event is senior teammate Mike Gerger, who grabbed the final qualifying spot in 12th place with a 9-over-par round of 81.
Cordaro and Gerger were the only North-area golfers to qualify for the state championship event. Hampton sophomore Ben Huber missed the cut by two strokes. Pine-Richland junior Chris Rust was one stroke behind Huber.
