While the WPIAL girls singles tennis championships are set for Thursday and Friday, another fall postseason tees off Monday.

The district will hold its boys individual golf sectionals Monday at eight Class AAA and nine Class AA sites.

Qualifiers will earn a spot in the WPIAL semifinals Sept. 27

In each Class AAA sectional qualifier, players will advance by shooting the designated target score within 10 shots of the course rating. If no player meets the target score requirement, the lowest scoring individual from the sectional qualifier site will advance as site champion.

In Class AA sectional qualifiers, players will advance by shooting the designated target score within 15 shots of the course rating. If no player meets the target score requirement, the lowest scoring individual from the sectional qualifier site will advance as site champion.

The boys AAA individual championships will take place Oct. 5 at Nemacolin Country Club. The Class AA individual finals are set for Allegheny Country Club on Sept. 30.
