Competing against North Tahoe and Yerington, the Incline girls golf team won its first two tournaments of the season in recent weeks.
Most recently, the Highlanders finished 62 strokes ahead of the Lakers in a tournament held at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Carson City last Thursday, Sept. 13. On Sept. 6, they finished 42 stokes ahead of North Tahoe at Walker Lake Golf Course in Hawthorne.

Kylie Daniels led North Tahoe with a 116 and Emily Irvine led Yerington with a 122.
Meyers also posted the low score at Walker Lake with an 85, which marked the first win for the sophomore. That helped lead Incline to the win with a low score of 422. North Tahoe was second at 464 and Yerington third at 509.
Harbaugh shot a personal-best 106, which was good enough for third place individually at the tournament, while Keller shot a 115, Ruhl a 116 and Findlen a 134.
Isabelle Schenone carded a 107 to lead North Tahoe, and Irvine shot a 103 to lead the Lions.
