Stafford Country Club played host on Monday to the Genesee Region League Individual Sectional Qualifier.
The sun shined just about as bright as the golfers on a near-perfect weather day.
Elba/OA senior Brayden Smith was able to capture medalist honors with a 7-over round of 79 (39-40).
After a close front-9 saw Byron Bergen's Ryan Muscarella just 2 strokes behind Smith, the defending Class C Individual Sectional Champion was able to pull away to finish 6 strokes ahead of the second-place Muscarella, who finished with an 85 (41-44).
Elba/OA senior Jake Walczak fired a consistent 43-44 to finish third place with a round of 87, while freshman teammate Eli Loysen was the only other golfer to break 90, firing a fourth-place round of 89 (45-44).
Rounding out the top 6 golfers, who will all qualify in their respective classifications for the Individual Section V Championship, were Attica's Ethan Harmon (51-42) and Byron-Bergen's Brendan Pimm (45-48), who tied for the final two spots with a round of 93.
The Genesee Region will be well represented in this Saturday's Individual Boys Section V Championship at Clifton Springs Country Club.
