DeGol, Day lead tourney

CRESSON — The top golfers in the area were in action Saturday during the first round of the 2018 Greater Altoona tournament at Summit Country Club.

The entire field was able to complete play, despite cool and rainy weather, which suspended play mid-round for more than an hour.

At day’s end, Scotch Valley’s Anthony DeGol recorded the low score on the men’s side with a 70, while Park Hills’ Todd Homan and Sinking Valley’s Artie Fink Jr were one shot back at 71. Sinking Valley’s Dan Solomon was alone in fourth after shooting 72.

Defending women’s champion Michelle Day, of Scotch Valley, turned in an impressive 77. Day will take a five-shot lead into today’s final round over Therese Perino who scored an 82. Scotch Valley’s Chris Sisto finished with 88, while Park Hills’ Cindy Trimarco and Summit’s Anita Jo Petrusky are tied for fourth at 89.

After the first round, there is a three-way tie for first place in the men’s team competition. Iron Masters, Scotch Valley and Sinking Valley each scored totals of 223. For the women, Scotch Valley will take a 14-shot lead over Summit Country Club into today’s final round after scoring 258.

Scotch Valley Country Club will host the action today, weather permitting, starting at 10 a.m.
