Bruce, Vannoy advance to Division II golf district

WEST LAFAYETTE – Two area golfers saw their seasons continue into the second week of the Ohio Division II postseason after solid rounds at sectional play held Monday at River Greens Golf Course.

The top six teams and top six individuals not on a qualifying team earned the right to play again next Monday with a trip to the state tournament on the line.

Advancing from the local area were Union Local’s Tristan Bruce and St. Clairsville’s Seth Vannoy.

Bruce shot an impressive 1-under, 35, on the front 9 and then carded a 39 on his way back in for a 2-over 74.

Overall, Bruce’s score tied for third in the entire tournament.

Vannoy, meanwhile, is headed to his second consecutive district. He was a member of the Devils’ squad that qualified for the 2012 state tournament. He advanced with a round of 8-over, 80.

East Liverpool successfully defended its sectional title. The Potters, who won the OVAC 4A title earlier this month, shot a 303.
