Comets fall short in bid for state berth

SoVaNow.com / October 03, 2013
The Halifax County High School golf team fell short in its bid for a state tournament appearance Tuesday.

The Comets placed third in the Northwest Regionals, with a team score of 323. Briarwood won the regionals with a team score of 314, followed by Thomas Jefferson with a 321.

HCHS was two strokes off the pace.

One Comet golfer earned a state tournament appearance. Joey Gasperini qualified for the state, to be held in Richmond Oct. 14-15.

Gasperini led HCHS with a 76 and Matt Ratliff added an 82. Gasperini finished sixth in regional play.

Ratliff, a freshman, had a strong outing and provided the kind of fourth score the Comets had been seeking this season.

Peter Gasperini struggled and had an 81. Josh Irby posted an 83. It was only the second round above 80 for P. Gasperini all season.

He caught a bad break and had a triple bogey on no. 17.

It was a difficult day for HCHS.

Coach David Graham called the loss ‘heartbreaking’, adding that the team had worked hard all season long.
