Franklin exerts its authority over rest of field; Comets competitive in golf match / August 17, 2017
Franklin County appears to have the strongest team in the Piedmont District golf lineup, but Halifax County High School continues to have a competitive squad.

As far as the postseason is concerned, the Eagles and Comets will not go head-to-head. Franklin is a 6A classification school, while Halifax is a 5A school.

In the latest Piedmont District action hosted by Martinsville, Franklin carded a team score of 148.

Halifax and Patrick County tied at 165.

Tunstall had a 170, while Magna Vista carded a 180. Bassett produced a 197.

Kassidy Irby led the way with a 40, while Kahlil also had a 40. Lance Chappell carded a 41 and Willoughby Gasperini scored a 44. Will Abdi recorded a 46. Henry Morrison also had a 46.

“Because of rain, the match was reduced to only nine holes. We were led by the steady play of Irby and a good round from Richardson.

“Chappel was in good form with a round of 41, followed by Gasperini with a 41,” said Graham.

The team played consistent, steady golf. Except for a few by holes by each player, Halifax is showing growth as a team.

“The players are working hard on some things in practice and I can see some improvement on the course. We will continue to improve as the season goes on. We will be at home next week and the team is looking forward to playing here,” said Graham.

The coach described the second round of the Piedmont as a “a very good effort by all players on a not so good weather day.”
