VIRGINIA BEACH -- Franklin County, which won the Conference 3 tournament title last week, tied for fifth in the 6A South championship Monday at Red Wing Lake Golf Course.
Led by senior Landon Prillaman's 2-over-par 73, the Eagles tied with Western Branch at 43-over-par 331. Riverbend won the title at 297, with Conference 31 tournament runner-up Cosby second at 309.
Prillaman tied for fourth individually, only one shot out of a playoff for medalist honors. Granby's Alex Rivera won a playoff to snare the individual prize.
Prillaman, a senior who will play collegiately at Ferrum, continued his strong form in postseason play. He took medalist honors in the conference event at The Waterfront. Monday's finish earned him an individual berth in the 6A state championship, which will be contested next Monday and Tuesday at Meadowbrook Country Club in Richmond.
Patrick Henry's Hill Donihe shot a 78 to earn an individual berth in the state tournament. Thomas Vance, co-medalist with Prillaman in the conference tournament, struggled to an 86.
Franklin County's other players and their scores included: Nash Hammock (82); Brice Arrington and Jeremy Lester (83); Tyler Peterson (84); and Robbie Canipe (87).
Rain leads to postponements
Heavy thunderstorms that produced a deluge of rain Sunday night and Monday morning played havoc with the other regional tournaments involving Timesland.
The 3A West championship, scheduled for Monday at Botetourt Golf & Swim Club, was postponed to today at noon. The 1A West championship at Draper Valley Golf Club was rescheduled for today at 10 a.m.
The 4A North championship at Heritage Oaks Golf Course in Harrisonburg will be played today at 10 a.m., as originally scheduled.
