Mitchell aces par 3 as golfers take fourth

Douglas junior Trevor Mitchell turned in the highlight of the day as the Tiger boys' golf team took fourth at the Silver Oak Golf Course Tuesday.

Mitchell hit a pitching wedge 120 yards on the par 3 hole No. 2 to record his first ever hole-in-one.

He shot a 42 for the day on the front nine before the tournament was cut short due to lightning.

Carson won the tournament, shooting a 178 as a team while South Tahoe took second with a 206 and Reno took third with a 212.

Douglas wasn't far behind that, shooting 218 as a team.

Troy Sheilds led the way for the team, shooting a 40, followed by Mitchell's 42.

Reese Kizer shot a 43, Wes Haskell shot a 45 and Andrew Lococo shot a 48.

North Valleys took fifth overall and Wooster followed in sixth.

J.T. Cockerill of Carson won low medalist honors, shooting a 1-under-par-34.

Carson's Jimmy Potter, Zack Rispin, Matt Mitchell and Scott Jenkins each shot a 36.

Carson won its fifth-straight league tournament and has clinched the Sierra League title.

Douglas travels to South Tahoe Tuesday for its regular season finale.
