Butts makes state for second year in a row

tribune staff report

South Tahoe High junior golfer Misty Butts will be a state tournament participant for the second year in a row after qualifying in Thursday’s Northern Nevada 4A tournament.

Butts shot a 44-46-90 over 18 holes at the Silver Oak Golf Course in Carson City to tie for 10th overall in the zone tournament. Butts tied Reed’s Kaitlyn Boyle, as the two advanced as the fourth and fifth individuals whose teams did not qualify.

Mandy Chappell shot a 38-38-76 for the best individual round in the tournament, and a place in the tournament along with Churchill County teammate Darby Detomasi, Hug’s Denise Oliver, Boyle and Butts. Galena won the team division with 434, to finish ahead of Reno (463), Carson (486) and Wooster (499). The top four teams qualify for state, as do the top five individuals who aren’t members of qualifying teams.

The state tournament runs Oct. 20-21 at Canyon Gate Country Club in Las Vegas.

South Tahoe’s other zone-tournament participant, Kalotina Manos, finished 40th overall, shooting a 55-56-111 to cap her first year of golf with the Vikings.

Douglas avenges early loss to spiking Vikings

Douglas’s girls gained volleyball vengeance over South Tahoe’s spiking Vikings on Thursday, winning the match in Minden in three games.

Douglas won, 15-8, 17-15, 15-10 to even the season series at one apiece after South Tahoe’s five-set home win on Sept. 21. South Tahoe played well on defense and attacked well, but struggled passing the ball.

“It was a battle, but we just couldn’t finish,” said South Tahoe head coach Gary Hankoff, whose Vikings stand at 6-7 in league play after Thursday’s loss. “We played great defense tonight, but you can’t score points if you can’t side out.”

Chantelle Young led the South Tahoe attack with 23 kills, while Courtney Wilson had just six, but played outstanding defense and was able to pass effectively. Sophomore setter Jessica Urreaga established herself as an offensive weapon, but also had eight digs under heavy fire from the Douglas front line.

South Tahoe’s girls leave today to participate in a tournament in Santa Cruz, Calif. The spiking Vikings play host to Carson on Tuesday and Wooster on Thursday.
