Tahoe Rim Trail endurance runs to test runners this weekend
South Shore’s Tahoe Mountain Milers and Carson City’s Sagebrush Stompers will host the Tahoe Rim Trail 50K/50 mile/100 mile endurance runs this weekend.
All three runs will begin at Spooner Lake State Park and follow the Tahoe Rim Trail north to Tahoe Meadows near the trailhead for Mount Rose. The runs start on Saturday and end on Sunday.
The 50K runners will run only as far as Tahoe Meadows, while the runners in the longer races will return to Spooner to complete their distances. Volunteers are still needed for the event.
For more information about volunteering, contact Renee Gorevin at (530) 318-0516 or by E-mail at email@example.com. For more information about the races, contact co-directors David Cotter or Kevin Bigler via E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Griffin Carter capped one of the most successful seasons ever for the Tahoe Gymnastics boys’ team by taking first in the high bar and second in both parallel bars and rings en route to a second-place finish in the all-around at the Hilton Invitational in Reno.
In addition to Carter, the club had several other gymnasts with outstanding performances during the recently concluded 2005-06 season.
At the Gold Country Classic, Marcus Foerschler took first on the pommel horse and high bar and second in both the all-around and parallel bars. In the same event, Foerschler was followed by Kyle Hannah, who placed fourth in the all-around and took second in the vault and third on the pommel horse and rings.
Matt Vane also shined for Tahoe in the past year, taking first in the all-around, floor exercise and vault at the Eye Opener event. Vane then placed second in the Nevada state championships, a result that also qualified him for the regional championships.
Casey Tara recorded a banner season by taking first in the all-around at the High Tech Invitational, Stanford Open and Nevada state championships. Tara then went on to place second in the pommel horse in the regional championships.
ASA team finishes in top-8
Brittany Barcellos went 5 for 9 with a triple and a home run, while Kelly Bartlett went 5 for 12 with a double to lead the Tahoe Smoke Under-16 softball team to a top-eight finish last weekend at an Amateur Softball Association tournament last weekend in Incline Village.
Shaylene McLaughlin went 4 for 10 with a double and Danielle Lowe recorded five stole bases in the tournament, which included some of the top teams from the Bay Area. In the first day on Saturday, Bartlett allowed only one unearned run on the mound but the Smoke lost 5-1 to the Tri County Diamonds.
In its second game of the day, Tahoe lost to the Ukiah Lady Cats 9-2 before dropping a 7-2 decision to the Windsor Wildcats in its final game of pool play. In Sunday’s tournament bracket, Kelly Barkley gave up just five hits and struck out seven in a 9-2 win over the East Bay Bat Busters.
The Smoke then lost to the Five Cities of the Bay Area 8-2 after going into the last inning trailing just 3-2. Three errors in the sixth inning doomed the Smoke, who also saw Delanie Sabac go 3 for 9 with two doubles in the tournament.
Tahoe Smoke will join the Under-14 Tahoe Fire team at a tournament in South Lake Tahoe on July 22-23.
Local soccer teams fare well
The Tahoe Blue Ice Under-12 boys’ soccer team finished its first season of existence with a strong showing at the Come Up For Air soccer tournament held last month on South Shore. After going through pool play undefeated, the Blue Ice lost to the Tahoe Rebels, who went on to finish second in the tournament. The Rebels are coached by Ben Hannah and the Blue Ice is coached by Tim Johnson.
