SCRUGGS - Inclement weather kept Franklin County and its Blue Ridge District golf brethren off the golf course earlier this week.
Monday, the Eagles return with a regional championship on the line.
The Waterfront Country Club is the host site for this year’s eight-team Class 6 Region A tournament with state tournament team and individual berths at stake.
Tee time is 9 a.m.
Joining FCHS in the field are Richmond area schools James River-Midlothian, Cosby and Manchester and Virginia Beach area schools Floyd Kellam, Grassfield, Ocean Lakes and Landstown.
The top eight teams from the 11-team region made the field. Failing to qualify were Oscar Smith, Western Branch and Thomas Dale.
Floyd Kellam seeks its third straight region championship. James River-Midlothian finished five shots in arrears and FCHS was fifth in the 2020 season tournament which was contested in this past April because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Region A tournament is visiting Smith Mountain Lake for the second time in three years - in 2019 it was staged at The Water’s Edge Country Club in Penhook and Floyd Kellam claimed team championship accolades with a 299. Cosby (305), James River-Midlothian (308) and FCHS (315) came in second, third and fourth.
