The North Tahoe golf team finished third out of seven schools in a league tournament at Fernley last Thursday.
While Whittell took the team win with a collective score of 448 — determined by its top five scorers — the Lakers posted a score of 460, which was five strokes behind second-place Incline (455). Sierra Lutheran was fourth at 479, followed by Yerington (502), Sage Ridge (572) and Hawthorne (579).
Individually, freshman Quinn Earley led the Lakers for the second straight week with a 7-over-par 79, which was the fifth-lowest score of the tournament. Teammate Abii Johnson carded a 90, Connor Hipsley 92, Jack Lemke 96, Jake Inclan 103 and Kylie Daniels 109.
Incline junior Mitchell Cornell earned tournament medalist honors with a 2-under-par 70. Griffin Cooper of Yerington finished runner-up with an even-par 72, while Incline’s Dylan Smith and Bryan Golombik each posted 78s.
Coming off of consecutive quality finishes, North Tahoe is looking to record another strong result in the final regular-season tournament at Edgewood Tahoe this Friday, which is the final competition before the Northern Division III regional championships in Elko on May 6.
The top three teams from regionals advance to the Division III state championship, which is scheduled for May 11-12 at Incline Village’s Championship Course. In addition to the top three teams, the top five individuals from non-qualifying teams qualify for state.
