Taylon Tom shot 77 to lead fast-improving Westchester, which has advanced from 2-A League tournament champion last year to undefeated 4-A league champion this year and is pushing the best teams in the 7-A League for the section title.
Palisades, which has won a section-best 13 City titles, received a 75 from Steve Chung and a 78 from Ben Seelig in the opening round.

``We wanted to show Westchester has a decent golf team,'' Aminifu said. ``We've got some good young players, and we're going to be a force to be reckoned with in City golf.''
