Shavertown’s Mariano Medico advanced to the semifinals of the 11th R. Jay Sigel Match Play Championship, a state championship event, before falling early Wednesday.
Medico shot 76-73 in Monday’s qualifying at Sunnehanna Country Club to place 11th out of 65 golfers playing for 16 spots in the match play brackets. The recent Holy Redeemer graduate then beat Artie Fink of Sinking Valley Country Club and David Denlinger of Lancaster Country Club, both by 4 and 3 scores, in Monday’s first two rounds.
The Huntsville and Fox Hill member was eliminated Wednesday with a 3 and 2 loss to Honesdale Golf Club’s Eric Williams.
