Lions golfers win over Park View

The Halifax County Middle School golf team continued its winning streak in Southside Middle School Conference play Monday, defeating Park View Middle School 187-228 in a nine-hole match at Green’s Folly Golf Course.

Monday’s win was the fourth for the Lions in Southside Middle School Conference play and improved the team’s record to 5-0 on the season.

“It was a great effort,” Lions Head Coach Charles Payne said of his team’s win.

“The kids played extremely well.”

A pair of young ladies, Kassidy Irby and Erin Glass, led the Lions’ effort. Irby earned medalist honors for the match with her round of 40. Glass posted the day’s second-best round for the Lions with her round of 46.

“That was a great effort on Erin’s part,” Payne said.

“We hope to see more good rounds like that from her.”

Lance Chappell’s round of 47 and a round of 54 from Cori Neal were also counted toward the Lions’ team total.

Willoughby Gasperini came in with a round of 55 and Stephen Comer carded a round of 58. With the four best scores from among six designated players counting toward the team total, the scores of Gasperini and Comer did not count.

Among other Lions golfers that got in a round on Monday, Ashley Day and Brayden Moore had the best scores, with Day turning in a round of 51 and Moore posting a round of 52.

Their scores did not count, as they were not among the six designated players from whom scores would be considered toward the team total. 

The Lions were scheduled to face Bluestone Middle School in a Southside Middle School Conference yesterday at Green’s Folly Golf Course. Today the Lions will travel to Rocky Mount to face Ben Franklin Middle School, giving the Lions three matches in as many days.
