East Rowan’s boys golf team shot 310 for second place in Monday’s 3A Midwest Regional at The Club at Irish Creek.

East senior Nick Lyerly shot 71 and finished second to Concord’s Stephen Carroll (70) in the competition for medalist honors.

The top three teams qualified for state competition at Foxfire on May 7-8. Marvin Ridge won the regional with a 299 total from its top four golfers. Asheboro took third with a 321 score.

South Rowan shot 324 and tied for fourth place.

East has been state runner-up in 3A the last two seasons. Individually, Lyerly was state champion as a sophomore when he shot 71-67 — 138 and tied for fifth last season when he shot 71-75 — 146.

East’s Bryson Sprinkle tied for fifth on Monday with a 73. Austin Miller shot 81, while William Garland and Alex Miller shot 85s.

The 2A Midwest Regional will be held today at Oakwoods Country Club in Wilkesboro.
