Comets continue conference tuneup

SoVaNow.com / September 19, 2013
The Halifax County High School varsity golf team continued its tuneup for the conference tournament, which will determine the Comets’ team fortunes in regional play.

HCHS won a three-team event at its home course, Greens Folly, on Monday. The Comets and Lion team played at the local course.

“We played some good rounds, 72, 73, and 75 from our top three ... and a good, solid round from Alex Tepper. It’s good to see them playing well now, considering we’ve got the (Piedmont district) tournament Monday and the conference tournament next Thursday. The one next Thursday is where you qualify for the regionals, or not,” coach David Graham said.

HCHS won the meet with a round of 302.

Magna Vista had a 347, for second place. GW-Danville finished last, with a score of 400.

Peter Gasperini finished with an even par 72.

“The team overall is looking really well. Josh is a really good golfer, and Joey plays pretty well. Alex is coming along. We’re all playing ok, and it’s good that we have a four man shooting 82 (Alex Tepper),” Gasperini said.

Josh Irby carded a 73, while Joey Gasperini contributed a 75 and Tepper fired an 82. The non-counted scores included Chase Wilkerson (85) and Lauren Spencer (92).

“This was an excellent win for us, and some good playing by some of our guys, (where) we’ve been working on several (aspects of golf),” Graham said.

Halifax will not meet the Piedmont district opponents in conference play.

That four-team event includes HCHS, Patrick-Henry Ashland from the Richmond area, Orange and Albemarle. That field sets the regional entries from conference play, and HCHS is hoping to make the cut there.
