The Nansemond River High School golf team finished its regular season with a 7-5 record but ended the season with a loss to Western Branch High School Tuesday. The Warriors also won the city championship again this year.

After a stellar regular season as the Warriors’ No. 1 player, Jackson Lyons holds the lowest average for the regular season with a 79.5, which is the best for the Warriors in more than five years. He will go into regionals aiming to qualify for the state tournament. Overall, the team feels good about itself going into regionals.

“We look to work hard over the next two weeks to prepare for regionals,” coach Brandon Frye said.

The Warriors plan to have a practice round Sept. 26 at Newport News Golf Club at Deer Run. Class 5 regionals start on Oct. 3 at the same course.
