Warriors one stroke back on record day

Whittell High’s boys golf team had its best round in two years, combining for a 394 at Mesa Valley Golf Club on Friday.

The Warriors still couldn’t surpass league-leading Bishop Manogue, which shot a combined 393, but did establish a performance landmark with Keith Truswell leading the way. Truswell shot a 72, good for medalist honors. Dustin Fox and Ryan Salomon had matching 78s, and Patrick Flanagan and Todd Echan both shot 83s for the Warriors.

“Hopefully, it’s a good indication, and hopefully, it’ll be something we can build on until state,” Warriors head coach Frank Bruno said of his team’s performance. “It was the first time we’ve had five guys playing pretty well. That is definitely our best score in the past two years.”

Whittell’s non-counting round was an 87, from Jayde Haynes. Yerington shot a 409, Incline a 420, Dayton a 422 and Hawthorne a 470 to round out the field.

“The league is pretty strong,” Bruno said. “Five of the six teams played pretty well.”

The Warriors can continue to build on their performance when they travel to Desert Lakes in Fernley, Nev., for Incline’s home meet in two weeks.
