Rotz catches fire on back nine for district title

Rotz carded a 38 on the front nine but came back with a 4-under 31 on the back side to conclude his round and finish the two-day event at 1-over 143.

"The front nine, it was pretty windy but it calmed down on the back side," said Rotz. "I got some birdies to drop. Considering the pressure of the tournament, it was probably my best round of the year."

Rotz led a quartet of area boys golfers who were among the top 24 that qualified for the PIAA regional on Monday at Golden Oaks Golf Club in Fleetwood, Pa.

First-round leader Nathan Orndorff posted an 80 but his two-day card of 151 was good enough to move on. Tyler Straub also had an 80 and finished at 157.


Waynesboro's Jake Wetzel qualified for the regional, following his opening 75 with a 79 for 154.

In the girls division, Chambersburg's Kacy Straub finished second with an 82-87-169 and Waynesboro freshman Liz Breed shot 82 to follow up her opening 90 and finish third.

"Conditions were tough once again with the high winds," said Waynesboro coach Ryan Henderson. "It took a lot of patience to play well."

Scott Levy, of Cumberland Valley Christian, failed to make the cut at 161 after an 82 on Saturday.
