Undefeated golfers set to take on southern Nevada teams
Ending an unbeaten season with a win over Spring Creek last week, the Tahoe-Truckee High School golf team is headed to state with something to prove.
The team has already beaten all of the northern Nevada teams it has faced, and had a chance to see many of the southern Nevada teams it will see at state at an earlier meet.
Still, head coach Brian Felberg is concerned, and the object of his worry is Virgin Valley, which hosts this week’s state tournament at its two home courses of the Palms and the Oasis in Mesquite, Nev.
“I’m not sure what’s going to happen,” Felberg said before flying to Las Vegas.
Sizing up the competition
Several weeks ago, the team traveled to the Palms and Oasis for practice rounds.
Based on the practice rounds, Felberg said his team should perform 15-20 shots better than if they’d never played the courses before.
A fish tale
Felberg said he met one golfer from the Virgin Valley team who claimed the team shot a 387 at the Oasis.
“I can’t see that,” Felberg said.
Making the trip to Mesquite are Neadeau, John Reedy, Gerdin, and brothers Matt and Mark Lundbeck.
In order to win state, Felberg figures it will take a 410 at the Oasis course and a 400 at the Palms.
The championship is not only determined for teams, but individuals, as well.
The top three players from each division are selected to compete for individual titles.
Being division leaders, the Truckee team could, as a result, come back with titles as a team and as individuals.
In the Gardnerville meet last week, Truckee won with 398, again staying under the goal of 400 set by Felberg. Spring Creek was the closest competitor with 440.
Freshman Mark Lundbeck shot a 74, and was followed closely by Chris Gerdin and Tony Neadeau, each with 79.
