The Truckee and North Tahoe high golf teams are off to a promising start after quality finishes in the season-opening Icebreaker Tournament at Hawthorne on Friday.

The Wolverines placed first out of 13 schools ranging in size from 1A to 4A.

Truckee, a member of the Northern 3A, posted a tournament-low score of 391 to edge 4A Manogue (402).

“I’m very pleased with how the guys represented themselves with only one week of practice,” said Truckee coach Jeff Froelich, who called the annual Icebreaker event a warm-up tournament.

North Tahoe placed second among 2A schools and sixth overall with a score of 449. Whittell was the top-placing 2A school and third overall at 428. Yerington of the 3A was fourth (431) and Fernley, also of the 3A, was fifth (438).

Individually, North Tahoe junior Kevin Scardigli had the highlight of the day when he made a 172-yard, par-3 hole in one on the sixth hole using a No. 5 iron.

Scardigli shot a team-low 81. He was followed by teammates Alec Griffith, who shot an 86, Travis Boerner (88), Daniel Longo (94), Bahrke (100) and Lovely (112).

For the Wolverines, senior Bryce Poulin shot a team-low 74, which also was the second-lowest score of the day behind the 71 shot by Brandon Dalton of Fernley.

Truckee junior Daniel Gelso shot a 75, while Pat Galvin and Matt Hardy shot 80s, Harmon 82 and Will Collin 86.
