Spanish Springs put together a team total of 351, 13 strokes behind host Elko, which was playing on its home course in the first conference tourney of the fall season.
Elko's Christina Kralich helped her Indians' team's effort by taking home individual medalist honors with a score of 77.
Tess Jones, carded an 83 to finish fourth overall and lead her Spanish Springs squad. Rachel Martin and Brittany Best finished with scores of 85 and 88 to finish fifth and sixth respectively for the SSHS team. Genessee Roberts turned in a score of 95 to wrap up the Spanish Springs scoring contingent.
Devan Gaddis and Stephanie King had scores of 101 and 115 for Spanish Springs, but teams need only count their top four scores toward their total.
“Overall, I felt good about our day,” Cougars coach Victor Sherbondy said. “When compared to last year's first tournament, we played a lot better. I know our team is stronger, but we've got a lot to work on in terms of our short game. I think our short game is what cost us first place.”
Only five of the HDL's seven schools fielded full teams Wednesday. North Valleys and Hug did not have complete teams. Reed finished fifth at the tournament.
Reed's 420 scoring total was comprised of: Lindsey Porter 101, Jocelyn Motter 105, Carlee Payne 106 and Nicole Ocheto 108
Spanish Springs and Reed will be in action again next Wednesday at the HDL's second tournament. It will be hosted at Hidden Valley Country Club with tee times, starting at noon.
