Vikings measure with a mulligan

Michael Traum

South Tahoe High received a timely mulligan on Monday at Lightning W Golf Course outside of Carson City.

With all 13 of the Northern Nevada League’s golf teams present, the Vikings learned their shortcomings going into next month’s important zone-qualifying tournament.

The Vikings finished ninth, which would be one spot out of the postseason next month.

“It was a good measure of where we are at this point. We have our work cut out for us for the next month,” said Viking coach Mike Patterson.

Team scores were Reno 382, Carson 384, Galena 414, Reed 418, Sparks 429, McQueen 429, Douglas 442, Lowry 448, South Tahoe 456, Fallon 468, Elko 470, Wooster 481 and Hug 501.

Freshman Jory Mendes did his best Tiger Woods’ impersonation, birdieing two par 5s and one par 3 en route to a career-best 84. Other Viking scores were senior Adolph Zertuche 88, sophomore Ricky Wasilchuk 91, sophomore Jeff Johnson 95 and freshman Kip Gstettenbauer 98. Brian Huber’s 104 was discarded.

“For some of them it was just course management, trying to carry shots 240 yards over bunkers instead of playing down the side of the fairway that doesn’t have any bunkers,” Patterson said.

Carson’s Michael Hohl shot the day’s low round, an even-par 72.
