Comet golf concludes productive season

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News / October 26, 2017
Halifax County High School golf enjoyed a very positive year.

The Comet boys returned to the Class 5 state tournament, finishing fourth.

And HCHS had two ladies compete at the state level.

Kassidy Irby finished just outside the top 25, and Ashley Day gained valuable experience.

"What an exciting way to cap off the end to a fantastic year for Halifax golf by having two senior young ladies compete in the girls state golf tournament. I am so proud of Kassidy Irby and Ashley Day for the way they represented our school at this great event. This was Ashley's first time and I know she was extremely nervous, but she handled it with class. She finished in 76th place, which was great for her first time on a big stage event," said coach David Graham.

"I was so proud watching her play. She played much better than her score (indicated) on a very difficult golf course. I know the experience she felt will last her a lifetime.

"This was Kassidy's third time to the state tournament, only missing it one year by a single stroke when she was a freshman. Kassidy played well considering her grandfather passed Saturday night before we left. I know it was hard on her, but she (showed determination) and gave it her all. She finished in 26th with a total of 82 girls playing in the tournament. Kassidy had had an amazing four years at Halifax - three girls' state and two boys' state appearances, along with all conference and all regional honors," said Graham.

"Ashley had played on the golf team for four years and now has a state appearance on her resume.   Both Kassidy and Ashley were supported by their families the two days in Richmond. Coach (David) Day and I have been lucky to be a part of this great team this year. These girls and the entire golf team had put in a lot of hard work this year and this postseason performance is a result of the team's efforts," said Graham.
