Girls' Golf: Tigers come up short at state

After putting together a six-stroke lead after the first day of competition at the NIAA 4A State Golf Championships in Las Vegas, the Douglas High girls' golf team couldn't find enough to hold off the charge from Silverado.

Silverado clinched the team title Tuesday afternoon with a two-day total of 920 -- 15 strokes better than Douglas. The Tigers settled for second place.

Silverado had an incredible second day, besting the Tigers by 21 strokes to score the comeback win.

Freshman Bethany Wurster lowered her first day score by a stroke to finish with a two-day total of 174 to tie for 10th.

Sophomore Heather Henderson tied for 15th with a 181, senior Katie Gettman took 18th with a 183, Shelby Louie tied for 24th with a 197 and Michelle Nikkels came in 28th with an even 200.

Douglas wrapped up its season as state runner-ups, marking only the second time in school history the Tigers have been able to finish so high, regional champions and Sierra League champions.
