  1. Congradulations to our Golf team! It takes alot of hard work to reach third place in any tournament and with a team score of 339, the Royals did a superb job! Honestly, I am not familiar with golf nor its scoring scale, but it sounds like the Royals did a good job. I hope they keep up the good work!

  2. It is a shame that our Prince George Golf Team came in third. It is pretty frustrating that Thomas Dale and Matoaca defeated us and went to Regionals. We do have next year and I hope that by then we will be better than those two schools. PG did a good job getting this far.

  3. Congrats Prince George! I don’t know too much about our golf team or how well we do but 3rd in District is pretty good! I feel like this was straight to the point, it gave the names of people and scores/points that were achieved without being a long read which can happen in an article some times.

  4. I like the brevity of this article, it was very to the point, and it didn’t have a lot golf terms that might confuse the non-golfer. Congrats to PG for coming in third, hard work really pays off. I’m sure they will work even more next year to win the district tournament.

  5. Congratulations on the third place finish. Believe it or not our sports this year is actually pretty good. We may lose some games but we are doing great in recognizing sports. Plus we got to admit Thomas Dale is just good at everything they do.

  6. Congratulations on making third place in the tournament and good luck next year! Also, good luck to Harris, Jolly, and Montgomery at the regionals and congratulations to you also for your superior performance.

  7. Congrats for the three that made it too regional tournament. I wish I had made it too. I like that golf, a sport that is not very known in our school, is recognized in our paper.
