Nathan Romero leads Marana past Catalina Foothills 156-159
September 13, 2021 by Andy Morales, AZPreps365
Marana senior Nathan Romero shot an even 35 on the Silverbell Golf Course Monday to help lead the Tigers past Catalina Foothills 156-159. Falcon freshman Finn Meister came in three strokes back with a 3-over-par 38 and Marana senior Dominic Swick shot a 39.
Romero picked up a double-bogey on the first hole but he regrouped with a birdie on his next hole and he picked up one more shot on the 5th hole to keep challengers at bay.
As a team, Marana is still too far out of contention for a playoff spot in Division I action but Romero and Swick could qualify as individuals if the duo can keep their pace. The Falcons compete in D-II and the team is currently just below the projected cut but Meister and fellow freshman Tyler Tosca have a shot if they can score low enough in seven rounds or more.
Flowing Wells scored three golfers and the Caballeros compete in D-II.
