McAlister top golfer from the North at state

The Cougars won their third straight 4A Nevada state girls golf title with a 615 at Eagle Valley West on Tuesday, 40 strokes ahead of second place Bishop Gorman.

Palo Verde was third at 699 and Reno took fourth with a 706, followed by Spanish Springs at 734.

Victoria Estrada from Coronado won the individual title with a two-day total of 146. her teammate Ashley Lung won the tiebreaker for second with a 151. She shot a 70 on Tuesday. Annick Haczkiewicz from Palo Verde was third, also at 151.

Spanish Springs senior McAlister shot a 72 on Tuesday, to go with her 87 on Monday and finish sixth.

Estrada said she was nervous before starting Tuesday, but a birdie on her first hole quickly calmed her nerves.

“That gave me some reassuring confidence,” Estrada said. “I just really took it shot by shot, the whole day.”

She called winning three straight state titles “amazing.”

“Coming into this year we were really pumped to see where our hard work could take us,” Estrada said.

She finished third last year at state.

Estrada said playing the course on Monday was big help in adjusting her club selection and learning how to play the slopes and elevation at Eagle Valley West.

Lung said the team spends a lot of time working on its short game and that was a key to winning state again. She finished seventh last year.

Coronado coach Joe Sawaia said the course played a little easier than Monday, when it was still a little wet from the weekend rain.

Coronado loses three seniors from this team.

Reno sophomore Abbi Fleiner shot 80 both days to finish tied for seventh and Spanish Springs senior Emma Gilmore was tied for ninth at 161.

Wooster junior Jessica Stanton finished in 17th after rounds of 86-84 for 170 and Reed sophomore Kaitlin Fleiner was tied for 18th at 171.
