Yure leads STHS to second-place finish; WHS places fourth

South Tahoe’s Alex Yure shot a 79 to tie for the day’s best round with Lowry’s Forrest Schumacher on Thursday in the annual Whittell Icebreaker Tournament at The Golf Club at Genoa Lakes.

Yure’s score helped the Vikings finish second overall with a 446 in the six-team tournament, while the Warriors had three golfers shoot in the 80s and took fourth place overall with a 454. Scott Lusby fired an 83, which was good for fifth overall in the individual standings, while Mike Flanagan carded an 85 and Tim Lipovsky turned in an 88.

“It was a good first meet,” said Whittell coach Steve Maltase, who team has been practicing at Genoa since Monday. “I thought we did pretty well.”

The Vikings’ Kevin Fannan shot an 85 for the team’s second best round of the way, and Teddy Kosciolek carded an 88. The Vikings have been holding tryouts all week at Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch. They don’t play again until March 22, when they travel to Reno for a tournament at Sierra Sage Golf Course.

“Kevin was actually a bright spot because he was our No. 6 guy coming into this,” said South Tahoe coach Mike Patterson. “That’s a good sign when you’re No. 6 guy can have a day like that.”

Lowry won the team competition with a score of 421. Douglas took third with a 450, while Incline and Hawthorne finished fifth and sixth, respectively, with scores of 462 and 480.

The Warriors’ second tournament of the year is next Friday at Hawthorne.
