Marana senior Nathan Romero shot an even 35 on the Silverbell Golf Course Monday to help lead the Tigers past Catalina Foothills 156-159. Falcon freshman Finn Meister came in three strokes back with a 3-over-par 38 and Marana senior Dominic Swick shot a 39.

Romero picked up a double-bogey on the first hole but he regrouped with a birdie on his next hole and he picked up one more shot on the 5th hole to keep challengers at bay.

As a team, Marana is still too far out of contention for a playoff spot in Division I action but Romero and Swick could qualify as individuals if the duo can keep their pace. The Falcons compete in D-II and the team is currently just below the projected cut but Meister and fellow freshman Tyler Tosca have a shot if they can score low enough in seven rounds or more.

Flowing Wells scored three golfers and the Caballeros compete in D-II.
