Raiders In Sixth After Day 1 of AA Golf Tournament
After the first day of the AA state golf tournament at Williamsburg National, Loudoun County is in sixth place, 20 shots off the lead.
Jamestown leads the field with a team score of 291, followed by Blacksburg (293) and Lord Botetourt (296). The Raiders - who finished seventh a year ago - carded a 311.
"We didn't play especially well, but not awful," Loudoun County Coach John Laycock said. "We left a few out there today."
Michael Linville led County with a 76, followed by Branley Kushner's 77 and Andrew Brenneman's 78 while Jon Youst rounded out the scoring with an 80. A few unlucky bounces off the trees on the heavily wooded course kept Kushner - the Dulles District individual champion - from a better result.
"Brantley had two shots that hit trees and kicked out of bounds," Laycock said. "They could have kicked the other way. We missed some short puts. It was just a tough day. We know we left 10 or 12 shots out there."
The Raiders tee off at 10 a.m. Tuesday and will look to move up the standings to cap another outstanding campaign.
"We'll go out there and have a good time and see what happens," Laycock said. "You want to pass a couple people anyway. So we'll go at it. But I think we know we're better than we played today."
Here are the full team scores through Monday's first round...
1. Jamestown - 291
2. Blacksburg - 293
3. Lord Botetout - 296
4. Cave Spring - 300
