Orange finished second at Bunker Hill.

The Lions shot 342, just 13 strokes behind sectional champion Gilmour Academy. Beachwood fell nine strokes short of the third district qualifying spot but CVCA edged them 348-357. Lutheran West finished 10th with 401 strokes.

Beachwood’s James O’Neill advanced to the district tournament as an individual after he tied Orange’s Dillon Fellinger for medalist honors with a 78.
