Truckee senior Ryan Flynn closed out her high school golf career as a champion.

Flynn shot a 5-over-par 75 on Tuesday at the Palms Golf Club in Mesquite, Nevada to capture her second individual Class 3A state title.

The senior finished the two-day tournament at 7-over-par to cruise to a 17-stroke victory. Flynn finished with a total score of 113, which included Monday’s nine-hole round at the Oasis Golf Club.

Flynn won the individual Class 3A state title as a sophomore and was runner-up as a freshman. There was no state tournament played in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

As a team, Truckee finished in third place with a combined score of 620. Douglas won the team title with a combined score of 544. Pahrump Valley was second with a combined score of 586.

Individually, North Tahoe sophomore Libby Webb took third with a 40-over-par 184. Incline junior Shannon Hugar was second with a 34-over-par 176. The Meadows’ Mizara Norton won the state tournament with an 8-over-par 150.
