Lions get second win / March 25, 2021

The Halifax County Middle School golf team improved to 2-0 after picking up a Junior Piedmont District win Monday at Greens Folly Golf Course.

The Lions picked up the win with a score of 203. Ben Franklin was second at 229, followed by Patrick County with 236.

Halifax’s Lukas Newton earned medalist honors for the second time this season shooting a 48. Last week Newton shot a 40.

Daughtry Reaves shot a 51, which placed him second for the Lions. Reaves was a steady performer on Monday after finishing one spot out at fifth last week.

Grady Upchurch and Camden Jones each shot a 52 to round out the top-four Lion golfers. Both were in the top four last week.

Sidney Hughes and Landon Elliot both shot a 54 with Bailee Henderson carding a 56. Trafton Martin shooting a 67, Josh Slagle at 70, and Jenna Perkins’ 73 completed the Lions’ golf scores.

Coach Charlie Payne said it was another match well played and allowed the team to gain some valuable experienced. He said the young Lions have been practicing their game around the greens and that practice paid off in the win.

“Very pleased with the balance of our team scores,” Payne said. “We wanted to play well at home and the kids did that.

“The team has been working very hard on their short game and I saw good evidence of that yesterday. All of our players were able to play in the match yesterday and gain valuable experience for the future.”

Patrick County hosts the next meet March 29 at Gordon Trent Golf Club. The final match of the season is April 6.
