The final round of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association Individual Golf tournament hadn't been kind to Gilman's Chris Rockwell the past two years. He enjoyed it much more this time around. Rockwell entered yesterday's final round at the Woodholme Country Club with a six-stroke lead and made it through unscathed to capture his first championship. The Gilman senior scored a four-stroke victory over teammate Greg Stamas. Rockwell shot 73 in the first round, a 71 in round two last week before finishing with a 76 on a cool, drizzly afternoon at Woodholme.
