The North Tahoe golf team finished fourth, one spot away from a state championship berth, in the Northern Division III regional championships in Elko on Wednesday.

While the Lakers narrowly missed state qualification, finishing 10 strokes behind third-place Whittell, freshman Quinn Earley placed sixth individually to punch his ticket to the state tournament as one of the top five finishers from non-qualifying teams.

North Tahoe posted a team score of 489. Battle Mountain claimed the regional title at 427, while Incline was second at 429 and Whittell third at 479.

North Tahoe was followed by Wells (510), Sierra Lutheran (519), Yerington (581) and Jackpot (700). Only the top three teams advance to state.

Earley fired an 80 to lead the Lakers. Among his teammates, Connor Hipsley shot a 99, Abii Johnson and Jack Lemke both carded 100s, Jake Inclan 110 and Adrian Brambila 120.

Incline junior Mitchell Cornell earned the individual regional title with a low score of 70. Griffin Cooper of Yerington was runner-up with a 73 and was followed by Braedan Crotteau of Battle Mountain (77), and Incline’s Bryan Golombik and Dylan Smith (78).

The Division III state championship will be contested at Incline Village’s Championship Course on Monday and Tuesday beginning at 10 a.m. Play begins at 10:30 a.m. on Monday and 11:30 on Tuesday.
