Warriors finish fifth in 15-team invitational tournament at Edgewood

Steve Yingling, Tribune sports editor

STATELINE ” The results weren’t what Whittell High desired, but no Nevada 2A golf teams finished ahead of the Warriors on their home course Thursday at Edgewood Tahoe.

Bishop Manogue, a Class 4A school from Reno, won the 15-team invitational with a five-player score of 400. The Truckee Wolverines weren’t far behind with 410, Lowry third at 425, Douglas fourth at 428 and Whittell fifth at 432.

Manogue’s top three players shot in the 70s, including medalist Miles Mathewson, who carded a 1-over-par 73. Truckee was led by Ethan Harman, who was runner-up with a round of 75.

The Warriors, the two-time defending Nevada 2A state champions, had four players shoot rounds in the 80s.

“We could have shot a little bit better, especially with this being our home course,” said Whittell’s Michael Koskin. “That could have also put pressure on us.”

Defending state champion John Szendrey led the way by placing seventh with an 80. Szendrey, however, wasn’t pleased with his team-low performance. He was 1-over-par through No. 13 but struggled on the finishing holes.

“I started out really good, then blew up,” Szendrey said. “I liked playing against the better schools because it makes us play better.”

Not far behind Szendrey were Trevor Fairbank with 84, Koskin with 86 and Alex Szendrey with 89.

Koskin, like John Szendrey, got off to a good start in his round. He was 1-over through four holes and nearly eagled his third hole ” the par-5 18th.

“I was focusing on my score instead of shot to shot, not really taking my time,” Koskin said.

Next Thursday, the Warriors will participate in an event hosted by Incline, then turn their attention toward defending their regional title the following week.
