The Whittell boys golf team finished second in a Northern Division III tournament at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Carson City on Thursday, led by senior Derek Heldt-Werle.
Incline took the team win out of the six competing schools. The Highlanders edged the Warriors by just four strokes, posting a low score of 418 to Whittell’s 422. North Tahoe was third with a team score of 469.
They were followed by Yerington, Sage Ridge and Hawthorne, none of which had enough golfers to record a team score.
Incline freshman Mitchell Cornell earned tournament medalist honors by carding a two-under-par 70. Mauro Viani of Hawthorne finished second individually, shooting a 75, and North Tahoe senior Buster Fenley placed third with a 77.
Heldt-Werle was right behind Fenley with a 79, while Whittell’s Steven Beller carded an 81, Zoe Bertz and Colin Buchholz each shot an 84, and Anders Chaplin shot a 94.
