Gasperini sixth after first round

Halifax County High School senior Joey Gasperini said he would like to finish in the top 10 among individual players in the Virginia High School League Division 5 state golf tournament which opened Monday at Meadowbrook Country Club in Richmond.

Gasperini was in good position to accomplish that goal, standing in sixth place after Monday’s opening round with his round of 79 on the par-71 course.

Lyberty Anderson, a senior from Manchester High School, shot a one-under-par 70 in Monday’s first round and entered yesterday’s final round with a 1-stroke lead in the individual competition.

Anderson, who carded the only sub-par round on the opening day, won last year’s VHSL Group AAA state championship and is a member of Meadowbrook Country Club. 

She won the RWGA (Richmond Women’s Golf Association) city championship at Meadowbrook in June.

In the team competition, Motoaca High School carded five scores under 80, turned in a team total of 306 and entered yesterday’s final round with a six-stroke lead over Deep Run High School.

Briar Woods High School was in third place, 10 shots down to Deep Run High School and Thomas Jefferson High School of Alexandria was in fourth place, five shots behind Briar Woods High School.
