It wasn't a great day for the Cougars, but they somehow managed to sneak into second place after carding a 379 at Eagle Valley West Golf Course in Carson City Monday.

Bishop Manogue blazed the course as three Miners finished in the top four, led by senior Alex Phillips, who took an eight-shot lead after shooting a 75.

While Spanish Springs is pretty far behind Manogue (340), the Purple and Teal will need to try to hold off Elko (382) and Carson (386) if it wants to qualify for the state tournament. The top two teams after two rounds of the regional tournament make state.

Brittany Best and Tess Jones paced Spanish Springs with scores of 89 and 90 respectively. Rounding out the scoring was Devan Gaddis with a 99 and Rachel Martin with a 101.

Rochelle Mikkelson's 111 and Genesee Roberts' 135 did not count toward the team score.

The Cougars likely won't have a shot at winning the tournament, which continues today at Eagle Valley East Golf Course.

"I think some of our girls underestimated how difficult of a course that would be," SSHS golf coach Victor Sherbondy said. "We made a lot of mistakes today. We definitely need to correct them for tomorrow."

While Reed didn't qualify as a team for the regional tournament, the Raiders had all four of their normal scorers compete as individuals. The top five individuals from non-qualifying schools will make it to state.

Reed senior Lindsey Porter put up the best round for the east Sparks school with a 99.

Jocelyn Motter followed with a 108, while Nicole Echeto and Carlee Payne finished with a 111 and 112.
