JV golfers play in Reed mini-tourney

South Tahoe High’s “next” six golfers had next, and their time came in Wednesday’s nine-hole league golf tournament.

Like most of the Northern Nevada 4A golf teams, South Tahoe used Reed’s home mini-tournament at the Red Hawk golf club in Sparks to give its second six golfers real-time playing experience. Andrew Wysong led the way for the Vikings with a 49, ahead of teammates Mikey Scheller (51), Corrie Lindsay (54), David Peterson (56) Jon Wallace (58) and John Strohm (60). Strohm’s total did not count toward team standings.

“When we went to 18-hole matches last year for conference, we decided to put four or five matches in so we could bring our second-stringers, so to speak, so they could get some experience,” said Vikings coach Mike Patterson. “I think it was a beneficial move.”

Wednesday’s meet on the tough Red Hawk course was the first high school match for many of South Tahoe’s golfers, and for some who don’t play junior golf, it was the first match of the year. Patterson said the team really improved.

The Vikings varsity squad returns to action Wednesday with Douglas’ home match at Genoa Lakes in Genoa. Patterson’s team is tied for the eighth and final playoff spot, and is looking to improve its position on a course many of the members know well.

“We’re hoping to do really well since most of our guys have played Genoa quite a bit,” Patterson said. “It would serve us well if we could finish in the top five or six schools on Wednesday. I think we have a good chance of doing that.”

JV softball downs Galena

South Tahoe’s junior varsity softball team picked up its second win at home on Tuesday, downing Galena 16-6.

Kaelyn Devries, Samantha Jones and Bethany Van Baren combined to drive in South Tahoe’s six runs. The JV Vikings picked up their first win Saturday, splitting a double header with Wooster’s JV, winning the first game 11-5 but losing the second 11-7.

The Vikings return to action Wednesday against the Carson JV at Tahoe Valley Elementary.
