Heffelfinger comes out on top at Sinking Valley Invitational

ALTOONA — In a tournament hosting more than 50 regional golfers, Mount Union’s Trey Heffelfinger came out on top, shooting an even par 72 at the Sinking Valley Invitational Monday afternoon.

“It was an honor for him to win this,” Mount Union coach Matt Fiscus said. “This is the kind of competition we’ll see come time for playoffs and this is a great sign. … We’re hoping to see this continue and get him a win an individual district championship.”

As a team, Mount Union finished last out of nine teams with a team score of 431. Hollidaysburg won the team race with 328 points.

Nick Pearce (106), Griffin Scott (122) and Matt Secrest (131) rounded out the Trojans’ scoring.

Despite the high score, Fiscus sees a lot of improvement in the team.

“We definitely took some strokes off our scores since the start of the season,” he said. “We took off at least 20 since then and that shows me we’re getting better day by day.”

Mount Union (1-1) travels to Huntingdon today.
