With McKelvy and Yeager having scores that put them in the Top 4 individually, it enabled the Aggies to create breathing distance and finish eight shots ahead of Corner for the fourth position from the eight team sectional. Carter Robertson finished with a 100 and Nic Bryant a 104 for Kurt Knight's Aggies.
Mortimer Jordan used an 85 by Delony, an 86 from Nesbitt and 91s by Gurley and Funderburk that sent them to the top of the leaderboard, edging Alexandria by eight shots.
The Valley Cubs had a pair of 88s from Watts and Nichols to spark them into second from the team category.
These four will move on to the North Sub-State next Monday (May 7) at Turtle Point Country Club in Killen. Tee times will be announced later.
