Three ETHS golfers qualify for sectional tournament


Three Evanston golfers claimed individual qualifying spots for Illinois High School Association sectional tournament play coming out of the Glenbrook North Regional tournament held Tuesday at Sportsman’s Country Club in Northbrook.

Senior Bill Nondorf placed in a tie for 9th place with a 73 for the Wildkits and earned the right to compete in next Tuesday’s New Trier Sectional tourney. Also advancing for ETHS were junior Nick Lydon with a 78 and senior Gil Hurtig with an 81.

Hurtig advanced by making birdie on the first hole of a sudden death playoff for the final two individual qualifier spots.

Evanston fell short of qualifying as a team with a sixth place score of 313 in the 9-team field. Only the top three teams — New Trier with a 285, Glenbrook North with a 294, and Loyola Academy with a 300 — advanced to the sectional.
