Turning in 40, Petrin played a bit better on the back nine, but could not record a birdie and finished with a 79, eight over part. That would put him in a tie for 16th place at 154, one behind Mandel (153) and two behind Bellardini (152), whose tie for 12th was best among Section III golfers.
Meanwhile, West Canada Valley’s Bobby Davenport shot a 157, followed on the Section III side by Nizamis (159), Auburn’s Mike May (161), Migliore (163) and Fayetteville-Manlius teammates Mike Lee (164) and Jack Santaro (169). Section III, as a team, finished fourth after winning team honors in the 2013 state tournament.
And the individual title went to Gianinny, who put together a two-under-par 69 that included three straight birdies on the front nine and seven birdies all. His even-par 142 beat Matthews by three shots.
