Garrett joins Mazzoni as regional qualifier
South Tahoe High’s golf team nearly qualified its whole starting five for next week’s Northern 4A regional tournament in Genoa.
But only Kyle Mazzoni and Kyle Garrett received invitations for the 36-hole tournament.
The five best players on nonqualifying teams also made the regionals. Mazzoni finished fourth in the final Nevada Cup Sierra Division standings, while Garrett was 20th. South Tahoe’s Eric Cianci, Trevor Borek and Chad Cooney placed 22nd, 23rd and 25th, respectively.
North Valleys’ Kevin Ovitt, who finished 21st on the season points list, was the final regional qualifier. He was a half point better than Cianci. Cianci will serve as the first alternate for the regionals, while Borek and Cooney will be the second and third alternates.
Mazzoni, a senior, is scheduled to tee off at 12:09 p.m. Monday at Genoa’s Resort Course. Garrett will hit his first tee ball at approximately 1:21 p.m.
