PV golfers top Eagles, improve to 8-0 / September 20, 2017
The Park View golf team improved to 8-0 with a hard-fought victory this week at home, over Greensville County 166-180.

Low scorers for Park View were Jackson Mosely with a round of 37, followed by Kelsey Jackson (41), Sherwood Baskerville (42) and Kenston Hardee (46). Coach Chris Hardee said afterwards that he was proud of the way his players played against a very good Greensville squad.

“Considering we lost five seniors last season I was uncertain what this season might hold,” said Hardee, “but this team” — led by returning players Sherwood Baskerville, Kenston Hardee, Chase Carter, Jordan Ingram and Jacob Jones and bolstered by new faces Hunter Sykes and Mason Mills plus a talented freshman class of golfers, Jackson and Kelsey Mosely — “has played some excellent golf this season.

“Also the addition of Tim Mosely to the coaching staff has added a further positive dimension to the program,” Hardee said. We’ll move forward, continuing to work both on the course and in the gym to prepare for the rest of the season.”

Park View's next match is against Southampton at their home course followed quickly by the Tri-Rivers District championships at the same course.

“If we can maintain our focus and continue to play well, the future looks promising” said Hardee, who also gave a special shout-out to the seniors on his squad as the Greensville contest was their last home match.
