The Lord Botetourt golfers saw their season come to an end when the Cavaliers finished in third place in the Region 3D tournament September 26. Abingdon won the tournament at the Draper Valley Golf Club in Draper.
The top two teams in the 13-team tournament advance to the state tourney, as well as the top three individuals not on those teams. Abingdon and second place Hidden Valley advanced as a team and individuals who qualified were Josh Cummins of Christiansburg with a 69, Nate Faulkner of Cave Spring with a 71 and Logan Williams of Magna Vista with a 73.
“Our region is pretty tough,” said LB coach Todd Smith. “The state champion has usually come out of our region over the past few years. I was pleased with how we played, but it just wasn’t good enough. The scores that qualified for states were pretty good, so those teams definitely earned it.”
