Kienz takes first-round lead at Section 9 tourney

Valley Central senior Josh Kienz fired his first under-par round in tournament play to grab the first-round lead at the Section 9 tournament.

Kienz made seven, yes seven, birdies including three in a row on holes 11, 12 and 13 to card a 1-under-par 69.

Burke Catholic coach Rich Welch, who was assigned to Kienz’s group, said it was the best high school golf round he’s ever seen.

Kienz leads Onteora senior Justin Lane by three strokes and defending champion Jeff Peters of Roosevelt by four strokes heading into the second and final round at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Casperkill Golf Club in Poughkeepsie.

Twenty-two golfers advance to Wednesday. The cutline was 85. Kienz will look to end a 17-year drought by Valley Central at the section tournament. Matt DeMaro was the school’s last section champion in 2000. Kienz will be joined by three teammates – Dylan Barone (74), Sean Adams (80) and Noah Conklin (85) – in the second round.

Kingston junior and OCIAA champion Scott Kleeschulte shot a 5-over 75 and is in fifth place.

Leach to play in Section 9 tennis tournament

Cornwall sophomore Dan Leach has received a medical waiver from Section 9 to compete in its tennis tournament after he was cleared to compete by a doctor Friday afternoon.

Leach defaulted and missed the qualifying Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association championship this week after becoming ill during a practice session Wednesday.

The waiver was granted based on the medical situation and Leach’s singles record (54-0 in the regular season) and his third trips to the state as a Section 9 doubles champion were also taken into consideration.

The Section 9 singles draw has one extra match now. Leach, who would have the No. 3 seed in the OCIAA tournament, will play Marlboro’s Claude Stephens in an outbracket match. The winner plays Kingston’s Bradley Hack in the round of 16.

Cornwall junior Lucas Arora earned the top seed in section tournament following his OCIAA singles title Friday. Onteora’s Tomas Pesko-West, the Mid-Hudson Athletic League champion, is the second seed. Goshen senior Lucas Irace, the OCIAA runnerup, is seeded third and Washingtonville junior Gavan O’Brien, third in the OCIAA, is the fourth seed.

Defending champion Tyler Reede leaves NFA tennis team

The upcoming OCIAA and Section 9 boys tennis tournaments will crown a new singles champion.

Newburgh Free Academy senior Tyler Reede, who captured titles in both tournaments last spring, has left the team per coach Dennis Maher. Reede wasn’t in Newburgh Free Academy’s lineup against Cornwall Monday in a matchup of unbeaten teams.

The 2016 Varsity 845 tennis player of the year, Reede was 23-1 as a junior after returning from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which caused him to miss his sophomore season.

The OCIAA championships are May 17-19 at Match Point Tennis. The Section 9 championships at May 23-24 at Match Point.
