If there’s anything that the first York-Adams Division I golf match told us on Thursday, it’s that Central York will be the team to beat — again.

Even without junior Joe Parrini at the season’s first match because of a prior commitment to play a junior tournament, the Panthers reached into their depth to fill his spot and hardly missed a beat. Central’s No. 2 player, Julianne Lee, wound up tying for the day’s low individual score with a level-par 72, matching Spring Grove senior Luke Hoffnagle. Four of the Panthers’ six golfers finished in the top 10, good for a four-player winning team score of 308 at Royal Manchester Golf Links.

ABBOTTSTOWN — York Catholic senior Andrew Forjan knew he faced a tall task if he wanted to capture the York County Junior Golf Association George Barton Match Play Championship.

Over the course of Monday and Tuesday, the top 16 boys’ golfers in the YCJGA point standings would need to tackle four rounds of match play in order to be crowned the champion. The long days, coupled with searing heat and humidity, meant the champion wouldn’t so much be a winner as he’d be a survivor.

YORK DISPATCH STAFF REPORTPHOTOS: York County Junior Golf Association match

York Catholic senior Andrew Forjan cruised to a four-stroke victory at Hanover Country Club on Thursday in a Philadelphia Junior Tour event.

Forjan’s 2-over-par round of 73 helped him fend off two Spring Grove standouts, Luke Hoffnagle and Mason Staub, to capture the win in the boys’ 16-18 division. Hoffnagle finished in solo second with a 6-over 77, while Staub finished in a tie for third with a 78. Both Forjan and Hoffnagle opened their rounds with birdies, but after Hoffnagle made the turn with a one-stroke advantage, it was Forjan who finished stronger, shooting a back-nine 36 to best Hoffnagle by five strokes on the side and overtake him for the win.
