H.S. SPORTS: Mercersburg Academy's weekend roundup


MERCERSBURG 420, SIDWELL FRIENDS 465 >> Mercersburg Academy remained undefeated by posted five scores in the mid-80s or below in a non-league victory over Sidwell Friends.

"This was a good tune-up for the state championship that will also be held at Chambersburg Country Club," Blue Storm coach Doug Smith said. "The boys got a good taste of what this course has to offer. Roland (Morris) continued a streak of good play and could have even been quite a bit lower."

Morris led the Blue Storm (7-0) for the third straight match by shooing an 80. Right behind him was Ross Brown, who fired an 82, and Ruichi Zhou carded an 85.
