Comets fall in state semi-finals





Comets seventh at Heritage Invitational / August 09, 2018
The Halifax County High School golf team placed seventh in the Heritage High School Invitation with a team score of 329.

Willoughby Gasperini fired a 73, while Ryan Corona had an 81. Will Abdi carded an 82. Henry Morrison shot a 93. Jacob Day turned in a score of 101.

There were 22 teams in the tournament.

“I was hoping for a top 10 finish and we got a little bit better. A very good showing for the first tournament of the year. Willoughby led the team with a 73, finishing a tie for 6th individually,” said coach David Graham.

“Wil Abdi played a solid round of 82 and first year player Ryan Corona scored an 81. Henry Morrison chipped in with a 93 for our fourth score,” said Graham.

“I thought this was a fine showing by these players on a very tough golf course competing against a strong field of players. Coach (David) Day and I saw some excellent playing and some things we are going to work on in practice. It is a little early to tell who might round out the top sixth because we have some good players on the team with a lot of potential to help us,” said Graham.

“After a few district matches I will know who will be our top six. I have talked to the team and our top goal is to compete in the state tournament again this year. Coach Day and I believe we have the talent to achieve that goal and our players are willing to practice and play hard to reach that,” said Graham.
