South Tahoe wins first girls swim meet

Kristi Collins won two races and Jessica Tinlin and Denise Bogard one each to lead the South Tahoe High girls swimming team to its first win against Reed on Saturday in Reno.

“This win was good after losing last week to Manogue by one point,” said Vikings coach Dale Bogard.

The Vikings nearly came away with a clean sweep, but the boys lost a close decision to the Raiders, 112-103.

Collins won the 200 individual medley and 100 freestyle races, while Denise Bogard was first in the 100 breaststroke and Tinlin No. 1 in the 100 backstroke.

South Tahoe also won the 200 medley and 400 free relays. Rachel Hankoff, Denise Bogard, Collins and Tinlin made up the 200 medley team, and Shaina Willen, Ashley Larmore, Jennifer Scott and Tiffany Carter comprised the 400 free team.

Other top-three individual performances for the girls were: Hankoff, second, 500 free and second, 100 breaststroke; Sarah Belair, third, 100 butterfly; Carter, third, 200 free; Caitlin Robinson, third, 500 free; and Willen, third, 100 back.

Jeff Koeck found victory lane for the boys, winning the 500 freestyle. Koeck also kick-started the winning boys 400 free relay team that also included Jon Jones, Scott Miller and Jon McKean.

McKean had a big meet, as he finished second in both the 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke.

Also cracking the top three for the boys were: Koeck, second, 50 free; Mannix Foster, third, 50 free; Miller, second, 100 free and 200 free; Jones, second, 100 back and third, 200 individual medley.

South Tahoe will host Galena at 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Recreation Center.

Some tidy fielding by Stefanie Terry and Missy Johnson wasn’t enough to prevent South Tahoe High from dropping a softball doubleheader to McQueen, 11-2 and 4-0, Saturday at Tahoe Valley Elementary School.

Terry made seven putouts at third base in the opener, while shortstop/relief pitcher Johnson had five putouts in game two of the Northern Nevada 4A League doubleheader.

“With the exception of a few minor errors, we played well defensively,” said Vikings manager Rich Barna. “Eventually, the balls that were caught will start to fall in.”

Heather Roderick stroked two hits, scored a run and knocked in another to lead STHS’s offense in the opener. Johnson chipped in an RBI, while Jessica Cerasoli collected a hit and scored a run.

Pitcher Corrine Edwards took the loss, giving up eight hits and nine runs while striking out three.

Vanessa Porter and Johnson kept the Lancers offense in check in game two. Johnson was particularly effective, pitching 2 1/3 innings of hitless and scorless relief. Porter surrendered seven hits and two earned runs.

Cerasoli, Terry, Johnson and Tammy Cowen accounted for the Vikings’ hits.

The Vikings, 4-15, travel to Hug for a 3:30 p.m. game on Tuesday in Reno.

Wet grounds postponed South Tahoe High’s single baseball game with Elko on Friday and a doubledip with McQueen on Saturday.

South Tahoe, 3-14, will try to make up the Elko game today at 3:30 p.m. at Todd Fields. The doubleheader with McQueen has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday at Todd Fields.

“We’ll wait to see what Mother Nature does for us,” said Vikings skipper Doug Russell.
