TTHS fall sports results in brief

The following are results from Tahoe-Truckee High School girls’ golf and cross country meets from the past week.

Girls’ golf

The TTHS girls’ golf team took second at a six-team tournament at Northstar last Thursday, with Rene Trudeau taking first overall after shooting a 97 on the day.

Battle Mountain took first in teams, while Spring Creek was third, a result which was something of a surprise to head coach Mike Merriman.

The previous week, Trudeau won at Battle Mountain, shooting a 93.

“She’s a very consistent player,” Merriman said.

In second place was Jessica Prissel of Battle Mountain with 100.

The Wolverines scored 569 as a team, behind No. 1 Battle Mountain, which turned in a score of 537.

Spring Creek shot a 598 for third place.

The next match for Truckee will be at Spring Creek Friday, a cross-over tournament with 13 teams.

“That will give us a better idea of how we will do at state should we get that far,” Merriman said.

Cross country

The TTHS cross country runners continue to struggle, with head coach Lynn Harvey considering all races at this point to be “practice races.”

She commented on the constant improvement of the Coombs twins.

At a recent meet, the highest Truckee finish was 65th place, but Harvey said the team continues to work on endurance and speed.

Harvey said the runners will begin competing as a team at the Dayton meet, which is set for Sept. 25.
