Comets finish strong behind Franklin in district match

SoVaNow.com / August 16, 2018
Franklin County won the first round of the Piedmont District regular season golf competition, with Halifax County posting a strong second place.

Franklin County is in class 6, while Halifax is a Class 5 school, at least for this season. The Eagles and Comets will not see each other in the regional postseason.

Franklin County carded a 300, playing at the Gordon Trent course in Martinsville.

Halifax finished with a 307.

Patrick County posted the third best team score, at 309. Magna Vista was fourth, at 325. Tunstall had a 354 and Bassett carded a 377.

Willoughby Gasperini led the Comets with a round of 70. Will Adbi had a 75, while Henry Morrison was the third Comet in the 70s, with a 78.

Nick Carter had an 84. Ryan Corona shot 93 and Jacob Day had a round of 97.

Coach David Graham said, “A very good match won by FC, which is always tough. We had a great team score for the first district match of the year,” said Graham.

“It was special because this was the first time any of our players played the course. I am very proud of them for posting a good number,” said Graham.

Gasperini posted an excellent round of 70, the second best score of the match.

Adbi played nicely with a 75, followed by Henry Morison with his best round of the year so far with a 78. Nick Carter rounded the team score out with an 84,” said Graham.

Corona became ill and could barely finish.

“This is what I am looking for from our fifth and sixth players. What I am seeing with this team is they are beginning to believe in themselves. They are making mistakes but not getting upset, while continuing to play good golf.

“Willoughby is posting great numbers and the other players are doing their part,” said Graham. “I saw Will and Henry play some fine golf today not letting mistakes ruin their score. It is early in the year but if we keep improving each day, it will make us consistent near the year, when it counts the most,” said Graham.
