En route to his championship match, Andruskevich bested Bryan Leddy, Matthew Cohen and Christopher Cerven. Andruskevich will be a senior at The Riverdale School in NYC and plays on the golf team; in addition, he is the reigning junior club champion at Plainfield.
In the Boys’ division, Dillon Corbo cruised to a 4&2 victory over Garrett Conway of Burlington C.C. Corbo jumped out to a quick lead by birdying four of his first six holes.
