Louisa golfer heads back to state tournament

For the third consecutive season, Zane Moore will represent Louisa County High School at the Virginia High School League Class 4 state golf tournament.

Moore, who finished in a three-way tie for state runner-up honors last season, earned the trip to states at the Region 4B tournament on Oct. 7. Moore shot a 72 to finish third overall.

“Zane has had a great year and this is something he should really be proud of,” Lions head coach Neal Moubray said. “He’s really making a name for Louisa golf on a state level. He earned second place in the state last year, so this year the goal is hopefully bringing the title home to Louisa.”

Moore was the only member of the Lions’ golf team to qualify for the regional tournament. The Lions competed at the regional subtournament on Oct. 1. Moore carded a score of 80 to lead the team.

Price Straley shot 88 in his final match and Evan Straley carded 94. Perry Hopkins completed Louisa’s team score with a 109. Nate Feagans also played for Louisa, shooting 110 for the day.

The VHSL Class 4 state golf tournament begins at 8 a.m. at the Williamsburg National Golf Course on Oct. 14.
