Williamsville North's Ben Reichert defended his Section VI golf title, becoming the first to repeat in the state qualifier for the first time since 2005.

Reichert was 2-over par after the first round of 18 and tied with Randolph's Nolan Ditcher heading into the final nine championship holes.

Despite heavy wind gusts, the Spartan senior fired a 2-over 38 to secure his second straight Section VI crown.

Ditcher finished in a tie for second along with Matt Pawlak of Niagara-Wheatfield.  Both fired a 27-hole score of 117 (+9)
