Back Mountain residents produced the top three scores on Oct. 10 to help Holy Redeemer earn a return trip to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Team Golf Championships.
Shavertown’s Mariano Medico, the individual District 2 Class AA champion, had four birdies while shooting a 72 at Eagles Mere Country Club to lead Holy Redeemer to a 307-339 victory over District 4 champion Danville for a spot in the Class AA team tournament.
The PIAA team championships will be decided Oct. 23 at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York, following two days of individual competition.
The Royals fell just short of a state title last season, losing in a one-hole playoff after tying for first.
Chase Makowski and Mike Boland, both from Dallas, shot 75 and 79 to help Holy Redeemer earn its return trip.
Makowski will join Medico in the individual state championships.
