Waubonsee Jon Hvasta fired an even par 72 to finish third overall at the Skyhawk Classic in Sterling.

Waubonsee's Matt Yonkovich shot a 4-over par 76 to give the Chiefs a solid one-two punch.

Black Hawk's "Gold" squad won the team title with a 291, six shots ahead of second-place Illinois Valley Community College.
