Shane Pyle shot 3-over par 75 to lead an improved Douglas High boys golf team Tuesday during a Sierra League tournament at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Carson City.
Pyle, a senior, turned in the fifth best individual score and sophomore Colin Brooks shot an 85 to finish 10th on Eagle Valley’s West Course. Douglas captured fourth-place as a team with a team score of 455, just 17 strokes behind Galena in third-place.
Those scores all represent significant improvement from the team’s season opener on March 25 at Wolf Run Golf Club, where the Tigers finished fifth with a score of 528. Pyle shot 85 to finish 10th at that tournament and Brooks shot 96.
Zander Ghan carded an 86 to finish one shot away from breaking into the top 10. The senior improved his score by 13 shots from the previous tournament.
Jaden Wass also shot 102, Jarod Enter 106 and Jake Wartgow 107 to round out the Tigers’ performance.
Bishop Manogue junior Harrison Holetz earned medalist honors with his 2-under par 70, four shots ahead of teammate Nick Turner and Carson’s Dalton Butler in second-place. Holetz also shot 70 to win at the first league tournament.
Bishop Manogue won the team title with a 384 total, while Carson posted its best team finish in three years with a 414 score for second-place.
A league junior varsity tournament was held Tuesday on Eagle Valley’s East Course, where the Tigers’ Jace Hart shot 98 and Landon Whiteley shot 112.
