Vikings tracksters ‘run and shoot’ for team fund-raiser:

The free throws might not actually be ‘free,’ but they’re for a great cause.

The South Tahoe High outdoor track and field team will kick off its season Friday afternoon with a free throw-shooting fund-raiser.

The contest, which will take place at South Tahoe High School, will be to see how many foul shots the team can make in an hour. The team is asking that the community pledge up to five cents for each made free throw.

If you are willing to make pledges, please contact any member of the STHS team or call Rick Brown at 577-6803.

South Shore wrestlers find hard work mat-ters:

The South Tahoe Wrestling Club continues to generate excitement for the sport on the South Shore, most recently at a Feb. 27 freestyle meet at Carson High School.

Go Far West, Young Skiers:

The Far War Freestyle Series had its championship race last weekend at Alpine Meadows, and several South Shore skiers made sure their names were among the tops in the region.

Sierra’s Amber Ramos continued to belie her young age in the moguls competition, finishing fourth overall and first in the J-4 ranks. Courtney Royce, of Heavenly, won the girls J5 moguls competition.
