Liberty, Fauquier at region golf meet
Liberty’s Parker Smith and Bailey Russell shot two of the best rounds of their lives Tuesday at the Class 4A North Region golf meet, but still missed the state cut by slim margins.
Smith shot a 74 and tied for eighth at Heritage Oaks Golf Course in Harrisonburg, while Russell shot a 75 and tied for 10th. Dominion’s Erik Dulik was the individual medalist with a 68, while Jefferson Forest won the team championship with a 299.
Fauquier finished last in the eight-team tournament with a score of 348. Liberty did not field a full team, but Colin Simmons added an 85 individually.
For Fauquier, Will Griffin shot an 81, while John Hillis shot 84, Jeff Harris shot 85 and Jon Harris shot 98.
Last week, as the 4A Conference 22 tournament, Smith shot a career-best 73. That score would have tied him for fourth Tuesday at the region meet and likely qualified him for state.
