The North Tahoe and Incline boys golf teams appear destined for a tightly contested season of play.

After finishing four strokes apart in the opening match, the lakeside rivals tied for the win in a Division III competition at Carson Valley Golf Course last Wednesday.

Both squads posted a team score of 311. They were followed by Whittell at 345 and Hawthorn at 405, while Yerington and Sage Ridge did not have enough golfers to record team scores.

Individually, defending state champion Mitchell Cornell of Incline earned tournament medalist honors with a 71. Yerington’s Griffin Cooper placed second, carding a 74, Incline’s Bryan Golombik was third with a 77 and North Tahoe’s Quinn Earley was fourth with a 79. The Lakers’ Murphy Scott rounded out the top five with a 92.

Due to another tournament that was scheduled on the course, only the top two players from each team were able to complete 18 holes. The remaining four players from each team completed nine holes.

For the Lakers, that included Connor Hipsley, who shot a 42, Adrian Brambila (48), Jake Inclan (50) and Colton Nordby (65).

“I’m very excited about our team this year,” said North Tahoe coach Steve Munro. “We definitely have a good rivalry with Incline; every match has been very close.”
