Comets finish fifth in regional

SoVaNow.com / October 04, 2012
The Halifax County High School varsity golf team earned its fourth straight appearance in the Northwest Regionals, with the Comets posting a fifth-place finish this season in Monday action in Nokesville.

The Comets did not advance to the state Group AAA tournament, nor did any HCHS golfers qualify individually. Battlefield HS repeated as the Northwest region champion.

“It was a good and bad day (Monday). We started off really well, played well on the front side and faded a little bit on the back. All in all, a good effort,” Comet coach David Graham said.

“The kids did a good job. They hung in there. Usually, it comes down to a few mistakes here and there, depending on when you make them.”

HCHS had a solid round of 328.

Halifax got an 81 from Josh Irby, an 82 from Peter Gasperini and Tyler Holt. Joey Gasperini had an 83 for the top four counted scores.

“Our goal was to get to the region, and have an opportunity at the state,” said Graham. “We came close again. We had it right there and let it slip away,” said Graham.

Graham has a strong returning core for next season and expects a quality group coming in from the Middle School program.

“It’s looking pretty good on the horizon,” said Graham.
