Four local high school golfers advanced to their sectional tournament after playing their way through a soggy district qualifier Wednesday at the Clinton Country Club.

Three Eldon Mustangs and a lone Osage player advance to next Wednesday's sectional, the last hurdle before the MSHSAA Championships.

Eldon posted a team score of 347 to finish 4th in the district, but only the top two teams advance. Three Mustangs: Braden Atkinson, Matt Hart and Jon Helms faired well enough in the individual standings to qualify. Atkinson's round of 80 was good enough for 5th place.

Senior Mike Terlaga, who played in Osage's No. 1 spot for much of the season, placed 19th with a score of 91. Terlaga and the Indians finished the tournament in 9th place.

The Boonville Pirates won the district with a four-player score of 331, enough to beat Helias Catholic by six strokes.

Terlaga, Atkinson, Hart and Helms will play on May 4 in the No. 3 sectional in Class 3, held at Marshfield Country Club.
