MECHANICVILLE — Hudson Falls’ Ben Swartz was the co-medalist in Class B at the Section II Class B and Class C/D Championships on Tuesday at Fairways of Halfmoon.

Swartz, also the medalist at the Foothills Council Tournament earlier this fall, shot a 9-over-par 81 to share medalist honors with Ichabod Crane’s Trevor Wolfe.

The top 25 percent of both class fields advanced to the Section II State Qualifier first round, set for Oct. 15 at Orchard Creek Golf Club. Making it from Class B were Swartz, Glens Falls’ Brayden Dock, who shot an 83, and Hudson Falls’ Eric Purdy (92).

Ichabod Crane topped Broadalbin-Perth, 366-387, to win the Class B team title.

In Class C/D, Hoosick Falls shot a 252 to win handily over Duanesburg (280), Schoharie (294) and Tamarac (294).

Individually, Galway’s Ryan Lovelass was medalist with a 75. The only local player advancing to the sectional state qualifier was Greenwich’s Jake Owens, who shot an 84.
