Truckee golf wins final regular-season tournament

The Truckee High golf team won the final Northern 3A tournament of the regular season by 29 strokes over second-place Incline on Thursday.

Truckee, having already secured the league’s regular-season title the week prior, hosted the tournament at Grizzly Ranch Golf Club in Portola.

The Wolverines posted a combined team score of 388 to Incline’s 417. Lowry was third at 422, followed by Yerington (436), Fernley (442), Spring Creek (471) and Dayton (529). Sparks did not have enough golfers to record a team score.

Junior Will Collin led the Wolverines with a 74, which also was tied for the third lowest score of the tournament. He was followed by teammates Daniel Gelso (76), Ethan Harmon (77), Matt Hardy (79) and Bryce Poulin (82).

Brandon Dalton of Fernley was the tournament medalist, shooting a 72. Yerington’s Vinnie Arighi shot a second-best 73 and Justin Holets of Incline matched Collin’s 74.

The Wolverines also brought a second team to compete, made up of Chris Botto, Mike Kruck, Cian Sullivan, Matt Hoehn and Pat Beck. Sullivan shot a 77, Botto 83 and Kruck 84.

During the regular season, Gelso led the Wolverines with an 81 average. Poulin was second at 82, followed by Collin (83), Matt Hardy (84), Pat Galvin (86) and Harmon (86).

Of the nine league tournaments during the season, Truckee won six times while finishing second twice and third once.

The Northern 3A will not conduct a league tournament. Instead, the top three teams in the regular-season standings advance to the state championship. They include Truckee, Lowry and Yerington.

The Southern 3A takes its top two teams ” Pahrump Valley and Faith Lutheran.

The NIAA 3A State Championship will be held at The Palms Golf Club and the Casa Blanca Resort Golf Course on Tuesday and Wednesday.
