Thanks to Justin Park, Vernon Hills' boys golf team will park its bus at a sectional site.
Park, a freshman, shot a 73, 1 stroke behind medalist Jordan Hahn of Richmond-Burton, helping Vernon Hills (318) capture Tuesday's Class 2A Grayslake Central regional at Renwood Golf Club. John Goerke added a 79 for the Cougars, who also counted the rounds of Bo Manso (80) and Ricky Schmidt (86).
The other two teams advancing to next Monday's Freeport sectional at Park Hills Golf Course were Marian Central (326) and Antioch (327), which edged Richmond-Burton (327) on a fifth-score tiebreaker.
Antioch was led by Dillon Kreutzer's 74. The Sequoits also received an 83 from Kyle Thode, an 84 from Cody Albrecht and an 86 from Jason Mrkonich.
