Golfers eye state title

With second place in the league nearly wrapped up, the Truckee High School girls’ varsity golf team continues to improve its scores.

In the Sept. 19 match at North Tahoe the Wolverines shot their team best with a 495.

In 1998 coach Mike Merriman’s team shot a 495 on the second day of the state tournament to walk away with the state title.

Jamie Ramon had the low score with a 90. Maranda Funston shot a 99, while Katie Fisher shot a 102, Katy Jones a 103 and Renee Cardinali a 101.

“They’ve started playing really well,” Merriman said.

The lady Wolverines have had several second place tournaments.

“We’ve had five scores that are pretty solid, and that’s how we’ve been finishing second,” Merriman said.

On Wednesday the Wolverines finished second nine strokes behind league leader Lowry High School.

In the match the Wolverines had three players to shot under 100. Katie Fisher shot a 93, Jenny Womack shot a 97 and Jamie Ramon shot a 98.

“Ramon has really come through the last two weeks,” Merriman said.

With a state bid nearly guaranteed at this point, the Wolverines next goal is to finish high at state.

“I don’t know if we could win, but we can sure make people know Truckee is on the map again,” Merriman said.
