Golf team improves

SoVaNow.com / September 07, 2009
The HCHS varsity and jayvee golf programs got in some extra work last week, as Comet coach David Graham continues to seek overall improvement in the program.

The Comet varsity had a match Tuesday at Greens Folly, with three schools participating.

E.C. Glass, now a member of the Seminole district, won the non-district match with a score of 165. Halifax tied with Jefferson Forest with scores of 167.

HCHS got a round of 38 from Cody Spencer, while Parker Harrell fired a 40.

Coy Lawson had a 43 and Taylor Tepper had a round of 46.

Blake Jones shot a 51, while Evan Slabach had a 52. Matthew Wilbourn had a 55 and Tyler Slabach had a 58.

“A good, close match between the teams,” said Graham. “I played some first team players to see what might happen. I think they got some feel of playing at the varsity level.”

JAYVEE MATCH: The Comets were one of four teams involved in jayvee action Wednesday. Jefferson Forest won with a score of 167. Franklin County was second with a 174. HCHS had a 186 and Glass posted a 199.

Tyler Holt led the Comets with a score of 41, while Nick Anderson and Josh Walls posted 48s. Ryan Throckmorton had a 49.

Ryan Green posted a score of 51, and Avery Anderson had a 53. Corbin Slabach had a 56 and Grant Coles fired a 59.

Graham noted the Comets got a “very good score from Tyler Holt, his best of the year. Nick Anderson, Josh Walls and Ryan Throckmorton have been working on their game a lot and I could see improvement. Not a bad showing because all of these players are freshmen.

“What I want the jayvee players to realize is that a lot of the scores they shot last year, which were good, must be improved on to compete at the varsity level,” said Graham.
