GADSDEN — Gary Wigington came away as the top area finisher in the 35th Alabama State Mid-Amameur Championship.

Wigington fought through “abdominal issues” to finish tied for 12th and in the money, shooting 1-over-par 68-73-73—214. He finished seven strokes behind Mobile’s Conner Elder, who prevailed over Fort Payne’s Hunter Hawkins in a three-hole playoff for the championship.
