ALTAMONT -- Glens Falls sophomore Alex Gibson shot a 75 Tuesday during the first round of the Section II State Golf Qualifier at Orchard Creek Golf Club.

His 75 was good for sixth out of 44 golfers, with the top 16 advancing to Thursday’s second round, also at Orchard Creek.

Gibson, who missed the cut for the second round last year by one stroke, recorded a 41 on the front nine and a 34 on the back nine of the par-71 course.

“He lipped out two other birdies on the back nine, so he could have been 4-under on the back nine,” Glens Falls golf coach Steve Zurlo said. “It’s all about staying calm on the 3- or 4-footers that makes or breaks you. He can putt his ball; that’s something you don’t really see with a kid his age. His experience playing competitive golf on competitive courses really paid off.”

Bethlehem’s Victor Fox shot a 2-under 69 to lead the field.

The top 16 play Thursday for nine spots, plus two alternates, for the State Golf Championship next spring. The state tournament is set for June 1-3, 2013, at Cornell University.
