Two Park View golfers advance to state tourney

The Park View golf team turned in their best performance of the year following a sparkling regular season as they did battle last week in the 3A Region tournament against other top teams from southeast and south central Virginia.

Unfortunately for Park View, New Kent High School was on top of their game, too, winning the regional title to advance to the VHSL state championships. New Kent took the 3A Region crown with a team score of 311 strokes, with Park View finishing second with 339.

Park View had two players qualify for state tournament individual berths. Sherwood Baskerville will travel to Abingdon for the VHSL Boys High School Golf Championships at Glenrochie Country Club. This match will consist of 36 holes played over Oct. 9-10. Meantime, Kelsey Moseley will travel to Midlothian in the Girls State High School Golf Championships at Independence Golf Course on Oct. 23-24. This, too, will be a 36-hole tournament for the state team and individual titles.

Park View went into the Sept. 26 regional meet at Petersburg’s Dogwood Trace Country Club with high expectations, having just won the Tri-Rivers District championships the previous week. Unfortunately things didn’t go quite the way they planned, but the result was still outstanding as the Dragons team finished in second place with their best performance to date.

“New Kent is a really good team, but I know we can beat them,” said coach Chris Hardee. “Hopefully the Dragons golf squad will get the opportunity to prove that next season and that seems likely because this is a young team with abundant talent …. I think we can expect a stellar season next year.”

Final scores were:

New Kent - 311

Park View - 339

Tabb - 352

York - 355

Colonial Heights - 359

Lakeland - 448

Phoebus - 462

Booker T Washington - 576

Park View was led by Sherwood Baskerville, who posted an 18-hole score of 80, followed by Kelsey Moseley and Jackson Moseley, both finishing in 86 strokes, then Jordan Ingram (87), Hunter Sykes (93) and Kenston Hardee (94).
