Warriors, Vikings impressive at Edgewood Tahoe Invite
STATELINE, Nev. – Putting conditions early in the season can frustrate most any golfer. Lowry’s Cole Erquiaga though wasn’t phased Friday.
He torched the Edgewood Tahoe course for a meet-best 74, two strokes better than Jordan Wright (Incline) in leading his teammates to the 15-team invitational title.
High winds Thursday dried things up enough to allow play Friday. Both Whittell and South Lake Tahoe teams competed with the Vikings coming in at 475 and Whittell shooting a robust 438 to take second place overall.
Trevor Fairbank (WHS) and Payton Guttry (STHS) each shot team-low 82’s. Whittell though managed to keep all five of their scoring golfers below the century mark, firing 82, 83, 86, 89 and 98 to place second overall on the day only to Lowry.
Low team total on the day was Lowry at 413. They were followed by Whittell (438), Elko (443), Douglas (449), Spring Creek (454), Incline (46) and Dayton (468).
Scoring for Whittell was Fairbank (82), TJ Kolesnik (83), Jake Williams (86), Nick Smith (89) and Derek Werle (98). Rob Caliger also competed and shot well, finishing his round with a 104.
For South Lake Tahoe, who finished eighth overall with a team total of 475, they were led by an 82 posted by Guttry. After that they had a tight grouping from Max Borek (90), Griffin Boles (98), Kolzon Van Pelt (101), Evan Brown (104) and Nick Pillsbury (105).
