QV’s Chris Tanabe Shoots Par, Wins WPIAL Boys AA Golf by 6
September 24, 2014
Chris Tanabe of Quaker Valley was a cut above the rest on Wednesday, as he shot an even-par round of 72 to claim the 2014 WPIAL Boys’ Class AA Golf Championship at Youghiogheny County Club.
Tanabe, a sophomore, bested the second-place finishers by an incredible six strokes. After Tanabe finished tied for fourth with an 80 in the sectional round at Pittsburgh North Golf Course to qualify for the championship, he teed off with the eighth group. Tanabe struggled with a bogey on his first hole, but then scorched the course in McKeesport the rest of the way, shooting 36 on each the front and back-nine holes.
