Truckee golfer fifth at State

Staff Reports

Truckee High senior golfer Renee Cardinali represented the Wolverines well at the Nevada 3A state championship tournament at Genoa Lakes on Monday and Tuesday.

Advancing to State by shooting a tournament-best 83 at the Northern 3A Regionals on Oct. 12, Cardinali entered the second day of the 36-hole tournament in a four-way tie for first, knotted at 82.

Cardinali shot an 87 in the final round for fifth place overall among individual players. Incline freshman Katelyn Wright took first place by shooting an 83 on the final day.

Truckee freshman Leah Arth also competed in the Northern 3A Regional Tournament but was unable advance to State, which required a top-10 finish.

The Wolverines did not have a chance to qualify for the State tournament as a team because they did not have enough golfers.

The Truckee High girls tennis team brought one singles player and one doubles team to compete in the Northern Nevada regional meet at the Plumas Courts in Reno on Oct. 12-14.

Nicole Zissimos lost, 6-0, 6-0 in her first match.

“She played a great match, but unfortunately was paired up against the No. 2 seed (Palosaari from Reno High) for her first match,” said Truckee head coach Jessica Putz.

Coree Sharp and Haley Adams lost to Rawlings and Sanazarro from South Tahoe, 6-2, 6-3.

“These girls had some wonderful points and played really hard,” Putz said. “The match was actually quite close, going to deuce multiple times.

“I was very proud of all the girls; they had a great season.”
