Comets win tri-match

The Halifax County High School golf team won a three-team non-district match Thursday at Bassett Country Club as a tune-up for today’s next-to-last regular season Western Valley District tournament at Danville Country Club.

Halifax County High School came in with a 330 total in Thursday’s match, with Bassett High School following with a 348 total and GW finishing third with a 393 total.

Peter Gasperini led the Comets’ effort with a round of 76. He was followed in order by Joey Gasperini (84), Tyler Holt (85) and Josh Irby (85) as those four scores were counted toward the team total.

Anna Carole Cole also played for the Comets, and came in with a round of 92.

“We didn’t play our best, but we will take the win,” said Comets Head Coach David Graham.

“This was the first time our players have seen the course. It was added experience for our players. We found some things we needed to work on for Monday’s district match and we’ll get those things taken care of.”

On Tuesday, the Comets participated in a tournament hosted by E.C. Glass High School at Colonial Hills Country Club in Lynchburg that included all five Western Valley District schools.

The Comets’ “B” team participated in that event, with the Comets finishing fourth in the six-team event with a 354 total.

Chase Oakes led the Comets with his round of 83. Alex Tepper’s round of 88, a round of 89 from Robert Guthrie and a round of 94 from Ryan Powell were the four scores that were counted toward the Comets’ team total.

Chase Wilkerson and Hunter Watts both came in with a round of 99.

Patrick Henry High School won the event with a 316 total. Host E.C. Glass High School finished second with a 323 total and Franklin County High School finished third with a team total of 327.

Halifax County High School (354), GW (393) and William Fleming High School (425) rounded out the field.
