Comet golf second again
SoVaNow.com / August 19, 2013The Piedmont District regular season golf matches really don’t determine anything as far as the Halifax County High School postseason goes, but the Comets recorded another second place effort Wednesday.
The Comets finished second in a four-team district tournament at Tuscarora Country Club in Danville. Tunstall won the meet, with a team score of 324. Tunstall won the event with a 302.
Bassett had a 343 and Martinsville was last with a 366.
Joey Gasperini had a 76 and Peter Gasperini followed with a 77 for Halifax. Josh Irby fired an 80 and Matt Ratliff had a 91.
It was Ratliff’s first varsity match, as a freshman.
Comet golf coach David Graham was pleased with Joey Gasperini’s effort. J. Gasperini had four bogeys and shot par the rest of the way. Peter Gasperini had a good, consistent round, and Irby birdied the last hole, allowing him to get home with the 80.
Graham also praised Ratliff for his effort, considering the freshman had never seen the course before.
The Comets are scheduled to play another Piedmont District match today in Danville, against GW, Tunstall and Magna Vista.
