Brent Ito, a rising senior at Ardsley, shot a 3-over 143 at Paramount C.C. to earn medalist honors during stroke-play qualifying for the 98th Met Junior Championship. James Nicholas of Scarsdale, Matthew Bettino of Bronxville, Bobby Difiorio Jr. of White Plains, Bear Carlson of Katonah, Nathan Han of Somers and James McHugh of Rye also moved on to match play.
“I think I hit the ball pretty solid and hit some good putts,” said Ito, who captured the MGA/MetLife Boys Championship last summer. “Nothing was really dropping, but I scrambled really well today and I kept it tight.”
