“I thought the team played exceptionally well on a tough course,” said Louisa coach Neal Moubray. “It was a really long day, but I’m proud that they hung tough and were able to bring home a second place finish, even with being down a man.”
Monticello finished third with 370, narrowly beating Orange’s score of 374. Fluvanna (380) finished fifth.
