Incline golf | Highlanders win season-opening tournament

The Incline girls golf team opened its season with a first-place finish in a Division III tournament at Washoe Valley Golf Course this past Thursday.

“I was pleased with the play of the girls,” said longtime Incline golf coach Joe Humasti. “They all show a lot of enthusiasm.”

North Tahoe’s Abbi Johnson earned tournament medalist honors by carding a 48 in the nine-hole tournament, which was reduced from 18 holes due to winds in excess of 30 mph.

Incline freshman Kennedy Cohn finished runner-up with a 50, and teammate Lauren Keller was third with a 53. Incline’s Tori Findlen fired a 54, Christine Schwartz a 59, Brooke Ruhl a 60 and Karyess Thompson a 66.

The individual efforts were plenty good enough to earn the Highlanders first place ahead of Yerington, with a team score of 191 to the Lions’ 307. North Tahoe had only the one golfer.

Among Incline’s JV squad, Bridget Johnson shot a 75 and Rachael Coilarchik an 85.

Incline is scheduled to host a tournament at Eagle Valley Golf Course near Carson City on Thursday.
