The Hornets golf squad split two matches last week to finish out the regular season with a 5-4 record heading into the Jefferson District tournament on Sept. 19.
Dropping its regular season finale to rival Western Albemarle High School at Old Trail Golf Course by a score of 138-173, the Hornets moved into the district tournament with the hope of regaining their early season form.
Said Orange head coach Adam Utz: “Western Albemarle is a really very good golf team but we did have Luke Jarrell shoot his first under par for nine holes this season with a 35, so we’re very happy about that.”
Along with Jarrell’s low score of 35, Scott Clore carded a 41, Thomas Payette had a 45 while Drew Clay, Sophia Hansen and Connor Lillard all turned in scores of 53.
Elsie MacCleery carded a low-round score of 32 to lead Western Albemarle while Joe Crombie pulled a 33 and Addii Ritter had a 36. Joe Morrinelli came in with a score of 37, Joe Foster shot a 41 and Grace Bearley had a 42 for the Warriors.
