Finger Lakes League Championships
For the second consecutive season Wayne's Josh Greenly carded a 76 to take medalist honors at the Finger Lakes Golf League Championships.
Playing at Clifton Springs Country Club, Greenly - the Finger Lakes Co-Player of the Year and a first-team Finger Lakes East All-Star - posted a five-over par 76 to win his second consecutive individual title. Naples' Andrew Fleischman finished one stroke off the pace with a 77 and was followed by Midlakes' Matt Lapaglia with an 80. All three qualify for the 2014 Section 5 individual tournament to be held next spring.
The low eight scorers from Wednesday's match automatically qualify for individual sectionals and rounding out the Finger Lakes representatives are Midlakes' Jake Blondell and Nick Waite, Mynderse Brian Johnson, H-AC's WIll Hampson and Geneva's Mark Pitifer.
The shot of the day came from Geneva's Pat Connor who recorded a rare double eagle, also known as an albatross, on the 505 yard par-5 eighth hole. Sitting 200 yards out, Connor holed his second shot from the fairway for a score harder to achieve than a hole-in-one.
During the regular season Geneva captured the Finger Lakes East Division and qualified for team sectionals for the ninth consecutive year. Midlakes won the Finger Lakes West Division and will join Geneva and Wayne in team sectionals. Wayne defeated Honeoye in a playoff match on Tuesday for the final spot.
Midlakes' Nick Waite was named 2013 Finger Lakes West Player of the Year, with Greenly and Mark Pitifer sharing the Finger Lakes East Player of the Year award.
Geneva coach Bill McDermott was honored as Finger Lakes East Coach of the Year while Midlakes' Jeff Beall was named Finger Lakes West Coach of the Year.
