STHS Golf team develops depth

Steve Yingling, Tahoe Daily Tribune

South Tahoe High golfers did nothing Tuesday to shake the confidence their coach has in them going into next week’s zone tournament.

A rearanged Viking lineup finished fourth out of 14 teams in the final Northern Nevada 4A League tournament of the season in Elko.

“If we continue to play as well as we are right now, we have a really good chance,” said Viking coach Mike Patterson of the Vikings’ zone chances Monday and Tuesday at Hidden Valley Golf Course in Reno. “Nobody expects us to do anything coming out of the snow, whereas the other teams have different expectations.”

South Tahoe will be making its third straight team appearance at zone and will be joined by league champion Galena, Reed, McQueen, Reno, Douglas, Carson and Spanish Springs for the 36-hole championships. The top three teams advance to the state tournament.

Sean Fannan continued his stellar play, firing a 76 to tie teammate Dan D’Angelo for the day’s third-best score in temperatures that didn’t rise above 35. Fannan, a senior, finished third overall for the season as well.

Shawn Heinz of Carson fired 71 for the low 18-hole total.

Other scores counting toward the Vikings’ 408 team total wee Hunter Harris, 81; Mike Scheller, 87; and Kenny Craig, 88. Andrew Wysong’s 90 wasn’t used.

Team scores were Galena 400, McQueen 403, Elko 406, STHS 408, Reed 411, Reno 411, Carson 415, Douglas 421, Fallon 432, Sparks 436, Spanish Springs 438, Wooster 457, North Valleys 514 and Hug 552.
