HCC brings home womens’ County Cup

SoVaNow.com / October 03, 2013
The Halifax Country Club women’s County Cup team had a mission this weekend, en route to another win in the prestigious local competition. HCC defeated Greens Folly Sunday.

HCC captain Pat Crew said the team’s effort was played in memory of longtime member Teresa Pool. But sportsmanship reigned in the matchup between the ladies.

“It was conducted with good sportsmanship in the way this Cup was originally meant to be,” said Crew.

HCC defeated GF 36.5-17.5. The match was close Saturday, leading 15-12 on Saturday, but then HCC turned up the intensity in Sunday’s final round. HCC got very strong play from Carol Gravitt in Sunday’s action, and all of her teammates chipped in with strong efforts.

Norma Chaney, the captain for Greens Folly, complimented HCC on its win, but noted there was excellent sportsmanship as well.

“They’re a great bunch of girls. They’ve got good golfers,” said Chaney of the winning team. She also noted the two competing teams continue to play together as friends, and the teams enjoyed the competition.
