POUGHKEEPSIE — May 23, 2008 — Heading into Wednesday’s second round of the 2008 Section IX boys’ golf championship at Casperkill Golf Club in Poughkeepsie, Liberty senior Josh Goldstein was five strokes behind Rondout Valley sophomore Andrew DeForest.
But Goldstein recorded a 2-under-par 70 on the Casperkill course to win the sectional title with a total score of 146. DeForest, who shot an even par 71 in Monday’s first round at the Villa Roma Country Club in Callicoon, fired an 81 on Wednesday for a final score of 152.
Goldstein and DeForest are two of the Section IX golfers who qualified for the state championship tournament, which will be played on June 1-2 at Cornell University in Ithaca.
Among the other seven Section IX golfers going to the state tourney is Justin Armstrong of Sullivan West. He shot a 79 in the first round and a 78 in the second for a total score of 157, which placed him fifth overall.
Two Sullivan County golfers, David McDonald of Tri-Valley and Ryan Sonnenschein of Monticello, made it to Wednesday’s second round but missed the cut for states. McDonald shot a 85-88-173, while Sonnenschein recorded a 85-90-175.
Four county golfers – T-V’s John Bernstein, SW’s Kevin Correa, Eldred’s Jason Jennings and SW’s Artie Norden – missed the cut to advance to the second round of the Section IX tournament.
Bernstein shot a 45 on the front nine of the Villa Roma course on Monday and had a 49 on the back nine for a total score of 94. Correa shot a 42-46-88, Jennings had a 45-44-89 and Norden carded a 44-51-95.
