Class 3A regional: Rock Island's Jeff Perez led three local qualifiers at the IHSA Class 3A golf regional Tuesday at Oakwood Country Club.

Perez shot an 81, which was 10 shots behind the 71 shot by medalist Rod Wuethrich of Normal Community. It also led the team standings with a 313.

Moline was the only other Quad-City team to qualify any individuals on a sunny but windy day. The Maroons' Eric Spurgetis shot an 84 and Carver Westphall an 88 to also make the top 10 individual scores and qualify for next week's sectional.

“It was just brutal out there," Moline coach Max Haverland said. "They did not expect the wind to pick up out there like it did. Greens were playing fast. It took the kids a little while to adjust."

Class 2A regional: Alleman sophomore Ryan Rochholz shot an even-par 71 to earn medalist honors Tuesday and lead the Pioneers to second place behind host Galesburg at the Class 2A regional at Bunker Hills. The Streaks shot a 302 to edge the Pioneers by one shot.

Alleman's Dylan Cervantes shot a 74 to tie for second but he finished fourth in a playoff. Hunter Love shot a 78 to finish 11th, but it did not matter as the top three teams qualify their entire squads as individuals. The remaining top 10 scores after that also make it as individuals.

"He’s been solid for the last three weeks or so, so I am not surprised,'' Pioneer coach Gene Elsner said of Rochholz. "He's capable of shooting those numbers."

Elsner said Rochholz carded a 72 a week ago at the Galesburg Invitational and a 77 at Bunker Hills in the Western Big Six meet eight days earlier.  

Geneseo took fifth with a 327, 15 shots out of third place. The Leafs were led by junior Mick Haverland's 78 and senior Marshall Rice's 79, which qualified both of them for the sectional.
