After inclement weather the previous week, the Dragon golf team was faced with the prospect of three matches in one week. The Dragons placed second in all three outings as the season appears to be shaping up into a race between Tri-Rivers District-leading Southampton and Park View chasing behind, with the rest of the teams far in back of the standings.

On Monday, August 26 the Dragons traveled to Cypress Cove Country Club for a match hosted by Franklin High School. The top four Dragon golfers fired a solid 191 but couldn’t keep pace with the Indians of Southampton who carded a 169 to take the victory.

Windsor, with a team score of 224, finished third followed by Franklin with 274. Southampton’s Hunter Roundtree was the match medalist, carding a 4-over par 40. Dragon junior Jackson Moseley just missed matching Roundtree. Moseley carded a solid 5-over 41 to lead the Dragons. Kelsey Mosely (43), Nate Jones (53), Jordan Ingram (54) and Christian Ingram (56) rounded out the Dragon scoring.

On Thursday, August 29, the Dragons returned to the familiar confines of South Hill Country Club for a pair of 9-hole matches. The teams were making up a match that was postponed the previous week due to threatening thunderstorms in the area. Even though the Dragons finished second in both matches, they put together some of the best golf they’ve played this season.

Moseley continued to impress, shooting a 4-over par 40 in the first match. He finished as co-medalist with Roundtree of Southampton. A pleasant surprise for the Dragons came from Jordan Ingram, who shot his best round of the season, a 5-over par 41. The team score for Park View was 176, just nine strokes behind first-place Southampton.

Windsor finished third with 223 strokes followed by Surry with 250, and Franklin which failed to field enough golfers to garner a team score. The balance of the Dragon scoring came from K. Moseley (44), C. Ingram (51) and N. Jones (52).

Jackson Moseley continued to shine in the second match, carding a thrilling par round of 36 and just failing to break par with an unfortunate bogey on the final hole. Jordan Ingram nearly matched his performance of the first match, posting a solid 8-over 44. Nate Jones shot a season-best round of 49 followed by Christian Ingram with a 55.

Southampton won the second match and appears to be the class of the Tri-Rivers District this season. The Dragons will once again travel to Cypress Cove CC for a match hosted by Southampton on September 9 followed by a trip to Windsor on September 11.
