The Truckee boys golf team opened the season with a pair of Northern Division I-A tournaments at Fernley and Dayton last Tuesday and Wednesday.

With limited practice time and variable conditions — with winds up to 40 mph — the Wolverines placed fifth and fourth, respectively.

In the Fernley tournament, Spring Creek took the team win with a low score of 444 and was followed by Fallon (449), Lowry (473), Elko (489), Truckee, (494), South Tahoe (496) and Fernley (568). Dayton and Sparks did not record team scores.

Spring Creek backed up its win with another team victory at Dayton the next day, posting a score of 424. The Spartans were trailed by Fallon (472), Elko (488), Truckee (508), Lowry (511), South Tahoe (543), Fernley (544) and Dayton (629). Sparks did not have a team score.

Individually, Steven Bosch of Lowry earned tournament medalist honors at Fernley with a low round of 75, while Trevor Stannard of Spring Creek won the Dayton tournament with an 80.

Truckee junior Sam Willis led the Wolverines both days, carding a 90 at Fernley and 89 at Dayton. Peter Caio came in at 96 and 103, Airon Yarbrough 103 and 103, Gordon Critz 107 and 101, and Cameron Rice 98 and 112.

The Wolverines return eight golfers from last season after losing four starting seniors from last year’s team, which finished third in the league.

Lowry is scheduled to host the next league tournament in Winnemucca on Wednesday.
