HERSHEY — Cowanesque Valley’s Austin Outman shot a 70 Tuesday in the second round of the PIAA Class AA boys individual golf tournament to finish with a 147, three strokes behind Riverside’s Skyler Fox, to finish in second.

He joined Bloomsburg’s Morgan Sohosky (T-5th, 2018) and Wellsboro’s Benjamin Barnett (T-5th, 2018) as recent Top 5 finishers.
It’s also the 17th time a District 4 golfer has placed 5th or better.
Wellsboro’s Ty Morral finished in a four-way tie for 17th place after shooting a 79 for a 163 overall.
In the girls Class AA tournament, Lewisburg’s Ava Markunas shot a 92 in the second round for a 190 overall to finish in 17th.
