Duffers fill the hole in one shining moment
South Tahoe continued its roll toward the final playoff spot in Northern Nevada 4A boys golf on Monday, taking eighth in a league meet at Thunder Canyon near Carson City.
“We were pretty solid,” said Mike Patterson, coach of the Vikings duffers. “We need to get those 90s down in the 80s, and it would be nice to have our top guys in the 70s instead of the 80s.”
Sean Fannan and Patrick Curtis shot twin 82s to lead South Tahoe, with Jason Scott at 84, James Peterson at 85 and Hunter Harris at 90. Kipp Gstettenbauer’s 91 did not count toward South Tahoe’s combined score of 423.
Jake Wolf of Reno had the tournament’s low round, a 73.
Patterson, though, expects his team’s scores to drop. South Tahoe will be able to make more of its practice time, as the team will begin practicing at the Lake Tahoe Golf Club, and won’t have to travel as far to practice. The team’s next meet is April 12 at Genoa Lakes, the home meet for Douglas High.
When the heat was on Saturday, South Tahoe’s young track athletes stepped it up with strong individual performances at the Rocklin (Calif.) Invitational.
“It was definitely not a walk in the park by any means,” said South Tahoe girls track coach Julie Pope.
Sophomore Amy Carter shaved nearly two seconds off her 300 meter hurdles time, and all Vikings 200 meter runners set personal records. South Tahoe also got a clean relay from its 4×100 meter team, and the 4×400 team of Lindsey Hitt, Jen Hamm, Courtney Carroll and Jackie Marshal showed promise despite some trouble on exchanges.
South Tahoe returns to action Friday and Saturday at the Reed Invitational.
