THE DALLAS POST Sunday, October 13, 2013
Medico, Makowski advance
For The Dallas Post
Like the other 93
players at Tuesday's
District 2 Individual Golf
Championships, Mariano
Medico and Ryan Georgetti
put up the best numbers
they could under the circum-
stances, then hovered around
the scoreboard at Elmhurst
Country Club, waiting to
learn their fate.
Medico knew his cautious
approach had made advanc-
ing into state play very
likely, but received the added
bonus of learning that he had
defended his Class AA cham- :
pionship. Georgetti battled
with the hope of doing
enough to at least get into a
playoff to extend his season,
only to learn after nearly an
hour that he had fallen one
stroke short in Class AAA for
the second straight season.
The two seniors repre-
sented the range of emotions
that go with the scoreboard-
watching portion of the day
that can provide even more
stress than a six-foot putt to
save par.
Medico, a Holy Redeemer
student from Shavertown,
shot 3-over-par, 75 to win his
title. Only a playoff loss as a
sophomore, before the state
split golf into two enrollment
classifications, prevented the
Monmouth University recruit
from winning three District 2
The hopes of contending
for a state championship
after placing fifth a year ago
made Medico place most of
his concentration on avoiding
the type of error that could
have kept him from advanc-
ing to the Pennsylvania
Interscholastic Athletic
Association East Regional
Tuesday at Golden Oaks Golf
Club in Fleetwood.
“It makes me play very
protective golf,” Medico said.
“... You want to win every
event you play, but, of course,
you just want to make sure
you advance.”
Georgetti, from Dallas,
understands that goal.
The stronger large school
competition in Class AAA
meant his 77 was one stroke
and one place away from
going to regionals. Needing
to place in the top six, he tied
for seventh among 34 players
who had already survived an
early qualifying process.
“I think I'm going to be
in a playoff,” Georgetti said,
keeping himself ready as the
scores were being posted.
“Pm hoping.”
Ultimately, he was disap-
pointed. Medico birdied the
par-five second hole, his start-
ing hole for the day. He nearly
reached the green in two,
then got up and down from a
bunker for his only birdie.
“I made a lot of good par
saves and had a lot of looks
at birdies that wouldn't go,”
Medico said. “I relied on my
short game to get up and
down in a couple of tough
spots.” Medico expected
that to be the case in windy
conditions that made scoring
difficult. A year ago, he shot
68 while winning his district
Chase Makowski, another
Back Mountain resident
playing for Holy Redeemer,
also advanced in Class AA
while shooting 78. Another,
Mike Boland, shot 82 to
place ninth, three shots out
of the playoff for the sixth and
final berth. Holy Redeemer
already made state play as
a team when it won the
District 2 Class AA title Oct.
4 with a 301-327 victory over
Lackawanna League . small
school champion Holy Cross.
Medico shot 74 in that
match at Fox Hill while
Makowski added a 75

Dallas and Lake-Lehman

Georgetti played the par-5s
in 1-under with a pair of bird-
ies in his 77.
