Submitted to the Tribune

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – After winning their first league tournament in thirteen years last week in Elko, the Vikings Girls Golf team made it back-to-back victories by capturing another title in Fallon on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Ava Wolfe led the way for the Vikings, capturing third place with a round of 94, a personal best. Piper Arnold also had a top ten finish with an even 100, while Carly Cox and Madison Cisneros completed the Vikings team score with each shooting 108. Josie Feeney and Maya Cisneros rounded out the South Tahoe scores with a 128 and 131, respectively. 

The Wooster Colts finished three shots back to take second place. Rya Montoya paced the Colts with a tournament winning 80, her third straight individual victory. The Colts and Vikings have taken top team honors at all three tournaments, with the Colts winning the opener in Spring Creek and the Vikings capturing Elko and Fallon.

“The season has been super fun so far,” said Ava Wolfe, a fourth-year team member. “I feel good about it (3rd place finish), but I definitely want to improve. It could be lower if I work out some of those miscues.” 

Head coach Greg Kuntz agrees. “They are a great group of kids who enjoy each other’s company. They’re starting to see how much fun it is to improve and have success. It’s going to be a tight battle, but we’re going to try and keep improving every day and stay in the hunt for a league title.” 

The Vikings travel to Winnemucca for the Lowry tournament on Monday, Sept. 25, followed by the Fernley tournament on Tuesday, Sept. 26. 

Lake Tahoe Golf Course will host the Vikings home tournament on October 9, with a 12:45 p.m. start time.
