It was a good day for Racine County high school boys golf Wednesday at the WIAA Division 3 Kohler Sectional.

St. Catherine’s had consistent scores up and down the lineup on the Meadow Valleys course at Blackwolf Run in Kohler and won the sectional with a total of 319 to advance to the WIAA State Tournament Monday and Tuesday at University Ridge in Verona.

Prairie struggled, but still finished second with 336 to join the Angels at state. The Hawks finished 21 shots ahead of third-place Living Word Lutheran (357).

Also heading to University Ridge is Catholic Central junior Jeff Stemper, who shot 77 to earn the third and final individual state qualifying spot.

Senior Dino Dominici led the way for St. Catherine’s, shooting a 76 (36-40) to miss medalist honors by two strokes. Senior Adam Gabbey shot a 78 (38-40), sophomore Ryan Busey shot an 82 (41-41) and junior Troy Dorlack shot an 83 (41-42).

“Dino had a great round,” Angels coach Pete Eitel said. “He double bogeyed No. 16, otherwise he could have tied for medalist. Adam was a couple under par after four, but his putter got him.”

For Prairie, seniors Connor Cain and Michael O’Brien shot 81 (37-44) and 83 (40-43), respectively. Junior PJ Munro had an 85 (41-44) and sophomore Ben Sellers shot an 87 (45-42).

“Not one of them played really well, but they battled their way around,” Hawks coach Kevin Will said.

Stemper came back strong on the back nine, shooting an even-par 36 to earn his first trip to state.
