Finally in the boys’ 13-15 age group was St. Peter’s Blake Magelee with a very respectable fifth-place finish 43-36 (79). He totaled two birdies and 10 pars in his round and he had one bad hole that kept him from earning a medal. After his troubled fourth hole, he bounced back very well to tally two birdies and seven pars in his next nine holes.
