STHS golf team close to playoff form

Tribune staff report

The South Tahoe golf team is closing in on the eighth and final spot to advance to the Northern Nevada 4A league playoffs, finishing in ninth place at Wildcreek in Sparks on Wednesday.

The Vikings finished two strokes behind Reno for eighth place.

Galena won the match with a team score of 422, followed by Carson (433), Douglas (440), Reed (448), Spanish Springs (449), McQueen (453), Fallon (470), Reno (473), South Tahoe (475), North Valleys (494), Elko (496), Sparks (530) and Wooster (541).

STHS coach Mike Patterson said his team is close to making the cut, but the season has a ways to go.

“Ninth place puts us two points out of eighth, where we need to be,” Patterson said. “Hopefully we can make up at least two points when we play at Sierra Nevada on Tuesday.”

Individually, Hunter Harris led the way for the Vikings with a score of 88, followed by Alex Yure with 90, Dan D’Angelo 97, Langdon Owen 99 and Andrew Wysong and Nate Alcorn 101 each.
