ArrowCreek tests Sierra League players
If you were to ask Douglas High girls golf coach Stephen Gustafson, Reno’s ArrowCreek Country Club was the real winner on Wednesday during Sierra League tournament play.
“ArrowCreek, the course, won this tournament,” Gustafson noted. “Only six players were able to break 100.”
Douglas freshman Aspen Smokey tied for 14th with her score of 115, while senior teammate Hunter Langford tied for 16th with her 118.
“There were some tough pin locations and lots of forced carries off of the tee,” Gustafson explained. “They did extremely well on the par 3’s, carding nothing higher than 1 double bogey on the day.”
Wooster’s Jessica Stanton shot 80 to earn medalist honors for the fourth time in five league tournaments.
Bishop Manogue won the match with a team total of 413 — its highest score this season — followed by Galena (428), Wooster (437), Damonte Ranch (448) and Carson (462).
The regular season ends Monday at Sierra Sage Golf Course, starting at 12:30 p.m.
The top four teams and five individuals from non-qualifying teams advance to the region tournament on Oct. 11 at Genoa Lakes and Oct. 12 at Washoe County Golf Course in Reno.
