Devon Prep wins PIAA 2A state golf team title

With the help of a seasoned trio of senior captains who had played in the PIAA 2A state team golf championship each of the last three years, Devon Prep captured its first PIAA 2A team golf title Monday at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York.

The Tide scored a total of 304, nine strokes ahead of runnerup Lewisburg. Devon Prep’s total included sophomore Nick Ciocca (1 over par 72), senior captain Graham White (76), junior Kidder Urban (77) and senior captain Charlie Hurchalla (79). Senior captain Tyler Kenneson shot an 81, and junior PJ Duffy was an alternate.

“Our three senior captains – Graham, Charlie and Tyler – gave the team an impassioned speech before their rounds today,” said Devon Prep golf coach Tony Ball. “They mentioned that they’d been here before – all three of them have played in the 2A state team championship each of the past four years – and that the team had gained enough experience to win it this year. They told the guys on the team to play their own style of golf, and to play the course, not to play against someone else.”

Devon Prep finished in third place in last year’s PIAA 2A state team championship. In the PIAA 2A state individual tournament, Ciocca tied for sixth place, and Hurchalla tied for 29th.

“Our guys really came on strong toward the end of this season,” said Ball. “They saved their better rounds for late in the season.”
