Incline golf | Meyers, Highlanders win league match

Staff report

Led by senior Devi Meyers, the Incline girls golf team defeated Yerington in a league match at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Carson City on Tuesday.

Meyers, who won the Division III state championship as a sophomore and finished second at state last year, earned tournament medalist honors by carding an 84.

Combined with sophomore Kennedy Cohn's personal-best 89, Christine Schwartz's 91 and senior Brooke Ruhl's 98, also a personal best, the Highlanders posted a winning team score of 362 to Yerington's 475. Incline freshman Haley Carlson shot 107.

Felicia Beruman posted the lowest score for the Lions, with a 112, while Huralia Resendiz represented ROP with a 126.

The two-time defending state champion Highlanders will look to earn a three-peat when the state tournament returns Oct. 13-14 at Eagle Valley Golf Course.

Meyers will carry a 79 scoring average into the state tourney, while the Incline squad expects to be challenged by Battle Mountain and Wells for the team title, said Incline coach Joe Humasti.
