Comet rookies try their hand in non-district golf match

SoVaNow.com / August 10, 2017
Halifax County High School golf took some of its younger players to a non-district match at Keysville Tuesday, with the idea of gaining experience for the future.

Randolph Henry won the match with a team score of 158. Central had a 168, while Halifax carded a 181 and William Campbell a 197.

For the Comets, Khalil Richardson shot a 44; Will Abdi, 45, Ashley Day, 46, Ashton Hinshaw, 46, Gabriel Brankley, 56, Jaxon Lloyd, 56.

Coach David Graham said the Comets took some players to gain more experience.

The Comets are working on swing changes that will take time in their overall development. The young golfers played better than the scores indicated.

Graham wants to eliminate the big numbers, which is hurting the overall progress right now.

Brankley and Lloyd are freshmen, and the Keysville match was their first.

They did a good job hanging in, all things considered. The other players held their own, Graham said. Overall, he stressed the positives, noting this was a ‘great effort’ for early exposure to golf at this level.
