Two brothers from the Newburgh Enlarged City School District clinched first and third places in the Section 9 Varsity boys’ golf championships.
Mark Yan, a 10th grader at Newburgh Free Academy, won the championship. His next closest competitor followed six strokes behind. Mark also won last year’s championship, at the time making him the first Newburgh golfer to clinch the championship title in 47 years.
Mark’s brother, Josh Yan, is an 8th grader at South Middle School. Josh secured a third place victory in the championship.
Both brothers will advance to the NYSPHAA State Boys’ Golf Championships in Elmira. They are coached by Jim Nee.
