Boy’s Golf: Sabino over Sahuaro in final week of qualifyingby Andy Morales on Oct. 14, 2013, under Sports
Sabercat standouts Joel Berkson and Matt Spahr have qualified for the state playoffs as individuals but Sabino needs one more qualifying score to make it to state as a team.
The Sabercats defeated Sahuaro Monday at the Forty Niner Country Club but both teams struggled as darkness began to fall on the far eastside course. Sabino will have one more chance on Wednesday to qualify.
Berkson competed at state as a freshman and qualified last year as a sophomore. “We’ve had some ups and downs,” said Berkson.
“After I qualified (September 24) my goal was to help my team qualify. If we can’t, then I will shoot for a top-five finish,” he added.
Spahr led all golfers with a 41 (par 36). Teammates Austin Rustand and Jacob Blomquist put up a 42 as did Sahuaro’s Tim Bishop.
Sahuaro has no qualifying scores listed.
