Algonquin's Joseph Addante shot a two-round score of 148 to lead a group of five local golfers into the third round of the 34th Chick Evans Junior Amateur Championship on Tuesday at Itsaca Country Club in Itasca.
The Jacobs golfer was 5-over-par in the second round, and dropped from second place to a tie for eighth, but still easily qualified for the top-32 match play that begins Wednesday.
Addante will be joined by Spring Grove's Jordan Hahn, who shot a two-round score of 149 to tie for 11th, and Hampshire's Chris Boyle (150), who finished in a tie for 16th.
Cary's Daniel DePrey (151) and Algonquin's Jack Ramsett (152) also advanced to the third round.
In the third round, golfers will be seeded 1-32 based on their opening-rounds total. If they win their first match, they also will play in the Round of 16 later that day.
