    FORT FAIRFIELD’S NOAH BERNARD hits a putt during Friday’s Aroostook League Championship/regional qualifying tournament held in Houlton. Bernard shot a 78 to qualify for the state tourney as an individual and to help his Tigers make it as a team as well.

    The Tigers bested golf squads from Hodgdon, Ashland, Limestone-MSSM and Central Aroostook to claim the championship trophy. The stroke totals from the top four golfers are used to calculate team scores. Fort Fairfield shot 349, followed by CAHS, 404; Hodgdon, 407; Ashland, 417; and Limestone, 442. Southern Aroostook had three golfers compete, but were not able to record a team total for lack of a fourth golfer.

    CHANDLER BREWER sp-ca golf-dc2-sh-39 of the Central Aroostook Panthers watches his putt roll toward the hole during Friday’s tournament in Houlton.  Brewer shot a 95 to lead his team to second place in the event, which qualifies CA for the state team tourney in Vassalboro October 13.

    In addition to crowning a league champ, the match also served as a qualifier for the state individual competition, set for Oct 13 at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro.
