Tahoe racer 12th in Sears Point race

Tahoe racer Mark Wolocatiuk finished in 12th place at the Speedvision World Challenge GT at Sears Point raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

Wolocatiuk drove his Corvette ZR-1 and was one of six Corvettes to finish in the top-12.

Bill Cooper of Bozeman, Mont., also driving a Corvette, took the checkered flag for his second victory of the season.

Last weekend’s Come Up for Air Soccer tournament saw two other area teams in the final and among the top-four finishers.

In the under-10 girls division, the Tahoe Storm took fourth place, while the Tahoe Red Dogs, under-12 boys team, took home second place.

“We had four out of 16 teams in the championship round,” tournament director George McCool said. “That’s pretty good, considering there were a lot of teams from big cities in Southern California.”

There is a unique opportunity for tennis players to still enter the 18th annual Tahoe Classic tennis tournament Aug. 4-6 in Zephyr Cove.

Tournament director Hersh Herschman usually is booked this close to the event, but he still needs several men’s A teams to complete the bracket.

If you’re interested, phone Herschman at (775) 588-3688.
