South Tahoe club places second in Sacramento tournament

Although it’s only May, the South Tahoe Girls Basketball Club is melding into an unselfish team for the 2001-2002 prep season.

The core of Viking coach Tim Jaureguito’s South Tahoe High girls basketball team finished runner-up in the eight-team Spring Fling Tournament last weekend in Sacramento.

“The nice part about it was that no one person took over the team scoring,” Jaureguito said. “The players really complemented one another.”

South Tahoe defeated Sacramento Waldorf 43-30 and Ripon of Modesto 38-35 before dropping the championship to Nevada Union of Grass Valley 38-29.

The success came despite South Tahoe missing starters Amy Carter, Jen Galea and Micah Owen.

Beth Hickman, Lindsay Hitt and Crystal Bruzzese, Lyndsay Salina and Danielle Kelleher assumed the leadership roles.

South Tahoe will continue its club season June 2 in the 30-team Cal Jam Fest at Cal-Berkeley. The club will host its tournament – the High Sierra Challenge – June 8-10.
