MEADVILLE — The Titusville Rockets golf team had a chance to see where it measured up against a wide variety of teams in the district at Tuesday’s Meadville Invitational.

Titusville finished ninth out of the 18 teams that carried enough golfers to score and turned in its second-lowest team total of the season (364). Wayde Diegelman shot a season-best 86, while Tyler Durstine matched his season-low of 89. Tyler Van Epps (94) and Derek Beach (95) also contributed to the team score while Kasen Neely (95) shot the exhibition.

Union City (327) continued its successful season by following up a Region 3 title with the team victory at the Meadville Invitational. Cole DeSimone, Josh James and Tyler Parkhurst all shot a 79, with Matt Bennett contributing a 90. Grove City and North East both came in at 331, but the Eagles fifth golfer had a lower score than the fifth Grape Picker. Therefore, Grove City earned second place over North East.

Individually, North East’s Isaiah Swan turned in the lowest round of the day of 73. Saegertown’s Dylan Flinchbaugh (76), Hickory’s Cam Colbert (77), Grove City’s Sam Norris (77) and Sharon’s Jacob Catteon (79) also earned medalist honors for placing in the top five.

Titusville will continue its season today against Franklin at 2 p.m. before the final Region 4 mega match on Thursday at 1 p.m. at Wanango.
