The Incline and North Tahoe boys golf teams finished first and second, respectively, in the opening Northern Division III tournament at Eagle Valley Golf Club in Carson City this past Thursday.

Led by tournament medalist Mitchell Cornell, who fired a 75, the defending state champion Highlanders earned the team win with a low score of 438 among their top five scorers.

The Lakers, who had four golfers post a score in the 80s, finished four strokes behind the Highlanders, at 442.

“It was a very good match. It was a close battle,” said Incline coach Joe Humasti. “North Tahoe is going to be a tough team to beat this year. We were very impressed with their play. It should make for a competitive league, which is good.”

Incline’s Bryan Golombik finished one stroke back of the lead with a 76, which was his second-lowest round in a high school tournament, Humasti said. Trailing Cornell and Golombik for the Highlanders were Peter Larson with a 94, Kelsey Philpott with a 96 and Nico Cruz with a 97.

North Tahoe’s Isaac Mozen carded an 84, which placed him fourth individually, while teammates Murphy Scott, Connor Hipsley and Quinn Earley tied for fifth with 88s. Adrian Brambila rounded out the Lakers’ team score with a 94.

Yerington, which was led Griffin Cooper’s third-place finish individually, with a 77, finished third with a team score of 466. Sierra Lutheran finished fourth with a 523, and Hawthorne did not record a team score.
