Spring Creek is scheduled to host the next Northern Division I-A tournament on Thursday. Lowry will host the following tournament on April 23.

The Truckee golf team picked up where it left off in the first Northern Division I-A match in nearly a month.

The Wolverines, ranked second in the league standings after the first three events, recorded a second-place team finish among a tightly packed and competitive field at Elko’s Ruby View Golf Course on Wednesday.

Host Elko claimed the victory with a collective score of 429. Truckee finished second just one stroke ahead of Spring Creek — 444 to the Spartans’ 445. They were followed by Lowry (455), Fernley (496), Dayton (613) and South Tahoe (628).

Truckee seniors Cody Tilton and Jordan Fereira both carded 81s, which was good enough for a fourth-place tie individually. Truckee’s Brandon Flora posted an 87, Sam Willis a 96, Airon Yarbrough 99 and Jake Lahr 104. The top five scores are used for the team result.

Justice Akerson of Fernley earned tournament medalist honors with a 77. Rance Black of Elko was second with a 79, and Lowry’s Andres Mendoza was third with an 80.

After four league tournaments, Truckee still holds a narrow lead over Spring Creek for second place with an average score of 434.3 to the Spartans’ 435.5. Elko leads the way with a 428.5 average, and Fallon and Lowry are tied for fourth at 447.8.

Individually, Tilton owns the league’s second-lowest average at 77.8, which is just behind Mendoza’s 77.5. Fereira has the fifth-lowest average, at 81.
