WESTFIELD – Win … and they’re in.
Sebastian Soendergaard and Dan Hickson each shot a 38 at Tekoa Country Club to help Westfield defeat West Springfield 159-176 Tuesday and earn a spot in the Western Massachusetts championships with a 9-2 mark.
A first or second place league finish, or a .500 or better overall record, is required to compete in the postseason.
Westfield, at 9-2, can finish no worse than 9-9.
“It was a good win for us,” Westfield coach Chris Strycharz said. “The kids played pretty well. It’s nice to get into the tourney this early in the year … half way into the season.”
