By: Nathan Bloechl —

Washington — The Mount Pleasant boys’ golf team survived and advanced in a close shave finish at yesterday’s sectional golf meet, advancing them to this week’s district meet to be held at Flint Hills Golf Course.

The Panthers finished with 353 strokes, just three better than that of third place Washington to clinch their ticket to next week’s final bout before state.

Washington ended their 18-hole round with 356 strokes, falling just three strokes shy of a tie with the Panthers.

On a windy afternoon, Reece Kempker led the way an 82.

Brevin Wilson added an 84, while Nick Matheny carded an 85.

Sectionals will be held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, May 20th.

The event will be hosted by Burlington-Notre Dame.
