Falcons’ golf, a 6A region team, had an “unFOREgettable” season.  Their season began toward the end of the summer and generally ends in late October with two or three individuals scoring low enough to make it to the state championship.

After losing seven seniors last year, the golf team has played exceptionally well considering what would be considered a rebuilding year.

The team effort from five boys and one girl, led by juniors Robby Ruhl and Emma Landis, enabled the Falcons to win the majority of the season with a record of seven to four.  The team’s best match of the season was against First Colonial, and although they lost, they shot their lowest score of the season.

“It’s gone pretty well for the team.  I think [we] only lost four matches and it’s [also] gone really well for me.  I’ve medaled every match that we’ve won,” Landis said.

In the team’s post season play at the regional team tournament at Red Wing Golf Course in Virginia Beach on Oct. 1, the team placed fourth overall, just missing qualifying for states.

Along with the team tournament, the Falcons also participated in the individual or open tournament.  In the boys’ individual tournament, sophomore Ryan Lemmon advanced to the state championship with a score of 74 as the third top individual in the region.

“I wanted to make it to states, but I expected not to,” Lemmon said.

The boys’ state championship took place at Magnolia Green Golf Club in Moseley, Virginia, on Monday, Oct. 9. Lemmon shot a score of 82.

The girls’ open tournament took place at the Kempsville Green Golf Course on Monday, Oct. 15.  Landis placed second in the region with a score of 72 to advance to the state championship.

The state tournament will take place at Magnolia Green Golf Course later this month, on Monday, Oct. 22, and Tuesday, Oct. 23.
