For the third straight season, Carroll County golfer Trey Montgomery has earned all-conference/all-district honors to help guide the Cavaliers to the Region 4D Tournament.
Montgomery, a senior, earned All-Three Rivers District honors Sept. 19 by tying for fourth place in the Three Rivers District Tournament at Hanging Rock Golf Club in Salem. During his sophomore and junior seasons, Montgomery earned All-Conference 24 honors both years. This year, the Virginia High School League has moved away from the conference designation.
As a team, the Cavaliers finished fifth in the district tournament with a score of 358 to qualify for the Region D Tournament set for Sept. 27 at Blacksburg Country Club. Montgomery led the way with an 80, the fourth-best score in the event.
“It was kind of one of those days where Trey got off to a slow start and then righted the ship the last few holes to keep himself it,” Carroll County golf coach Hagen Giles said. “We shot a 358 at the district tournament and our average teams score has gone down about 20 strokes as the season went on and the guys have picked it up a little bit. We are still not where we need to be, but we have picked up some steam.”
Freshman Will Dalton posted the second-lowest score on the team during the district tournament with an 18-hole round of 92. It was the first time this season his score counted for the team score, which Giles said was a huge plus. Junior Josh Coleman and his brother, Luke Coleman, both carded rounds of 93 in the district tournament.
“Josh has shot in the seventies for the first time in his career this season and he has played a whole lot better this year than last,” Giles said.
