Staff reports

Alexis Holmes finished 17th in the Northern 4A regional golf tournament on Tuesday in Elko.

The South Tahoe High junior shot an 89, following an opening-round 90. Her two-day total of 179 left her nine strokes off the final state-qualifying spot. Douglas’ Bethany Wurster won the individual title with a 148 total, and the Tigers also captured the team title.

Warriors sweep Silver Stage

Whittell High isn’t wasting much time disposing of its Northern 2A League volleyball foes these days. The Warriors swept their third straight opponent and fourth in five matches on Tuesday in Silver Springs.

The Warriors defeated Silver Stage 25-18, 25-12, 25-18 to raise its league-leading record to 8-1.

“Another great team effort,” said Whittell coach Tony Fathergill. “Everyone came in with good energy. They were excited to be on the court.”
