Below are brief recaps of what is going on with the various Tahoe-Truckee teams.

This will be a weekly feature.


The team with the shortest and most active schedule is the tennis team. Coached by Laura Borghello, the boys’ and girls’ teams are doing well in their inaugural season.

The boys’ team boasts a 2-2 record having defeated Fallon and Incline. The win against Fallon was decisive as the Wolverines claimed every round, winning 22 1/2-0.

The competition against Incline was a different story. The boys eked out a 13-9 1/2 victory behind the efforts of several players.

Ryan Simm, John Parker and Mark Rosol all won at least one in the singles. Aeron Borghello and Nick Ratto teamed up for for a doubles win.

Will Loomis and Ryan Stock claimed two doubles victories with Chris Schindler and Botto, Steve Seitz and Zack Sharp, and Borghello and Scowcroft each claiming wins.

The girls’ competition against Fallon was rained out, so the team only has three competitions under its belt, claiming a 1-2 record.

The girls’ win came against Incline in a highly contested match that came down to the last doubles match. In fact, each of the teams’ outcomes have been within a couple of points.

The girls’ team is led by Sandra Bruener, who has dominated all of her opponents. Lindsey Borghello and Heather Thym have also been consistently winning, though Thym has recently been injured and had to be taken out of the last round against Incline.

Kimmy Fasani-Britton and Jaime Morton-Holly have teamed up for a couple of doubles wins along with Kelli Miller and Megan Powers. Jenny Shaeffer and Michelle Stock also have claimed several wins.


The Truckee golf team has participated in three tournaments, handily claiming the individual and team titles in each.

Rene Trudeau, building on last year’s state championship, has claimed the lowest score in each of the tournaments. Trudeau shot an 87 at Fernley to claim the prize and, most recently, an 89 at Spring Creek.

Megan Harter, who finished one stroke behind Trudeau at Battle Mountain in the first tournament of the season, continued to be competitive at the Fernley tournament, shooting an 89 and claiming the second place prize. Harter was unable to compete at Spring Creek.

Kim Waller is sneaking up in the ranks, having shot a 96 at Spring Creek, claiming third place, and a 105 at Fernley.

They then defeated the Dayton varsity team 3-0, the Whittell JV team 3-0 and the Yerrington varsity squad 5-0.

Junior varsity boys’ soccer

The JV boys’ team is breezing through the season, having scored 27 goals in four games and allowed only one.
