The Greenwave boys golf team won the season's first two tournaments in Dayton and Fernley last week.

Fallon won the Dayton tournament on Tuesday with a team score of 318 — 22 strokes better than second-place Fernley. Dierks Hammon led the team with a low-medalist score of 73 followed by Colin Shishido at 77. Ron Lee and Pakela Malama-Gomes each shot an 84, and Drake Reid finished with a 94. Although his score didn’t account in the team total, Matthias Loop shot a 103.

In Fernley on the next day, Fallon finished first with a 329, one stroke ahead of Truckee and four ahead of Fernley.

Hammon finished second with a score of 75 followed by Malama-Gomes with a 76. Shishido carded an 88, and Lee and Reid tied at 90. Kylan Sorensen finished with a 103.


After suffering a 10-0 loss to 5A Douglas earlier in the week, the Fallon baseball team swept Dayton to stay perfect in the 3A East.

Fallon defeated Dayton, 8-0, on Friday before sweeping Saturday’s doubleheader by the mercy rule, 12-2 and 13-3, in Lyon County.

Fallon (13-4, 6-0 3A East) traveled to Spanish Springs on Tuesday and resumes league play after spring break when it hosts Elko on April 12 and 13.

After Friday’s shutout win, Fallon scored six runs in the sixth inning to engage the mercy rule in Saturday’s first game.

Senior Bryce Adams and junior James Kelsey each drove in two runs on two hits with Adams also recording a double. Senior Baylor Sandberg and junior Evan Giovanetti each had three hits and an RBI, and juniors Chase Carnahan, Trevor Hyde and Anthony Gonzalez each drove in a run.

Sandberg went the distance, striking out nine in six innings and allowing two unearned runs on a hit and four walks.

An eight-run third inning put the series finale out of reach, giving Fallon its sixth league win.

Hyde led the team with three hits while Alves drove in three runs on two hits and senior Isaac Martinez singled twice. Carnahan, Sandberg and Kelsey each drove in two runs. Kelsey’s double was the team’s only extra-base hit. Adams also drove in one.

Adams picked up the win, striking out four while allowing six walks, two earned runs and three hits.


Despite dropping Friday’s series opener, the Lady Wave softball team regrouped to sweep Dayton on Saturday to win the series.

Fallon (7-3, 4-2 3A East) fell 5-2 on Friday before blasting the Dust Devils, 15-1, in Saturday’s first game and edging the hosts, 2-0, in the nightcap.

The Lady Wave venture out of league play this weekend for the annual Reed tournament in Sparks.

In a classic pitchers’ duel, junior Vernita Fillmore outlasted sophomore LaSade Conti, striking out nine and allowing only a pair of hits in the shutout.

Fillmore’s bat was the difference in scoring when she doubled in junior Maddie Keller with two outs in the fifth to break a scoreless tie. Also with two outs, Fallon scored again in the seventh when junior Dana Buckmaster’s grounder was misplayed in the infield, scoring Keller.

Fillmore retired Dayton in order to end the game.

Fillmore and Keller each had two hits, while senior Kiley Wallace and junior Taralynn Vershum each singled.

In Saturday’s first game, Fallon pounded 23 hits and scored in all innings but the first and fifth in the seven-inning affair.

Junior Rochelle Prentice and Hutchings each led with three hits, while Wallace, sophomore Janessa Bettencourt, Buckmaster, Vershum and freshman Sutton Yost each had two hits. Wallace, Prentice and Yost each drove in two runs, and freshman Kalaya Downs, Vershum, Fillmore and Buckmaster each had an RBI. Wallace and Hutchings each hit home runs.

Fillmore picked up the win, striking out nine while giving up five hits, two walks and an earned run.

Conti won the first game for Dayton as the Dust Devils scored the game’s final four runs to come back from a 2-1 deficit.

Conti outdueled Bettencourt although the Fallon sophomore yielded no earned runs in a six-strikeout performance. Conti struck out 10 and allowed three hits.

After Wallace’s single in the first gave Fallon a 1-0 lead and Bettencourt’s single broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth, an error allowed Dayton to take the lead in the bottom half. An outfield error tied the game before a two-out single broke the 2-2 tie.
