SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — The South Tahoe girls golf team took to its home links for a 3A Northern League tournament Monday, Sept. 12. The Vikings finished fifth out of eight teams at Lake Tahoe Golf Course, led by a 127 from freshman Jenna Shortridge.

Shortridge and fellow freshman Sydney McLeod (130) delivered South Tahoe’s top scores Monday while playing in their first high school event. Both players missed the Vikings’ season-opening matches at Elko and Spring Creek on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

Sophomore Hannah Heidel shot a 131 on Monday, while sophomore Jordyn Yochheim (134) and freshman Alia Enriquez (137) rounded out South Tahoe’s top five. Freshman Lilly Smith carded a 141 for the Vikings’ in their only home tournament of the season.

Elko won Monday’s tournament, Lowry finished second and Spring Creek placed third. Lowry’s Tatyana Carlson was the medalist, shooting an 88.

South Tahoe has nine players this season, all of which are underclassmen and brand new to high school golf. The Vikings’ team coached by Greg Kuntz also includes freshmen Natalie Frazier and Catherine Yohnka.

The Vikings return to action Tuesday, Sept. 20, in a league match at Fallon. The following day, the Vikings hit the links at Dayton.
