Vikings sit in middle of pack after day 1

Tribune Staff Report

The strongest winds of the season helped prevent South Tahoe High from eclipsing the 400 barrier for the first time in school history at the Carson Invitational on Thursday.

The Vikings’ five players combined for a 412 total, leaving them 12th out of 22 teams in the 36-hole event at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Carson City.

“We had a shot of breaking 400 today and we didn’t play terrible,” said STHS coach Mike Patterson. “It was windy as it’s been all season, but we ought to be used to that by now.”

STHS’s Sean Fannan had no trouble in the windy conditions, firing a 2-over-par 74 on Eagle Valley’s East Course. All of his teammates shot in the 80s, including Dan D’Angelo 83, Kenny Craig 83, Hunter Harris 86 and Ryan Kraw 86. John Wallace’s 88 wasn’t used in the scoring.

Reed’s Dustin Hall led all scoring with a 69. Carson has the 18-hole team lead at 387.

The tournament concludes today at Eagle Valley’s West Course. Action begins at 8 a.m.
