THOMASVILLE — The York-Adams League Golf Team Tournament is becoming a regular outing for Central York’s Joe Parrini.

It was just two years ago when Parrini was part of the league championship York Catholic squad. After transferring to Central York last year, he helped the Panthers capture the title.

Now, as a junior, Parrini was back again with his Central York teammates. Again, it was Parrini who helped his club repeat as champion.



The York Catholic golf team wrapped up the York-Adams League Division III title with a 57-stroke win on Thursday at South Hills Golf Course near Hanover.

Andrew Forjan and Jon Giambalvo finished first and second, respectively, for the Fighting Irish, pacing the team to a four-player team score of 308. Forjan shot a 72, while Giambalvo was just behind him with a 73. Josh Stewart’s 81 and Steven Nigro’s 82 were also taken for York Catholic’s team score. Bermudian Springs finished second at 365, followed by Fairfield’s 399.

Stewart’s 81 tied him for third with York Tech’s Abe Miller, while Nigro’s 82 was good for fifth.
