After setting the course record at Manor Valley Golf Course earlier this season, Penn-Trafford sophomore Nick Turowski achieved another incredible accomplishment on Tuesday, as he captured the WPIAL Class AAA Boys Golf Individual championship.
Playing at Nemacolin Country Club in Beallsville, Turowski shot an even-par round of 70, which was four strokes better than the closest competitors – Kyle McClintock of Peters Township, and Fox Chapel Area’s Eli Yofan.
Turowski notched three birdies, as well as seven pars, and avoided any bogeys on the back nine to claim the decisive victory. In the process, he became the first sophomore in five years to win the WPIAL Class AAA crown.
In the same event a year ago at the South Hills Country Club, Turowski finished 21st, while his older brother, Alex, placed 16th.
With no Western Regional this year, the top 14 finishers on Tuesday all advance to the PIAA Class AAA Championship, which will be contested on Oct 18-19 at the Heritage Hills Golf Course in York. Including Turowski, five of those qualifiers hail from Westmoreland County, as the Franklin Regional trio of Jeff Anderchak, Zach Abdallah, and Nolan Shilling, as well as Belle Vernon Area senior Tyler Mocello each tied for ninth with a round of 77.
Additionally, Penn-Trafford senior Chase Crissman and Belle Vernon Area junior Patrick Bush tied for 17th with a round of 81.
