The Carson High boys tennis season came to an end in the first round of the Northern 4A playoffs on Tuesday as the Senators couldn’t overcome one of the North’s best singles players, Joey Saarem, and a tough Lancer doubles lineup.

McQueen was able to turn around a 10-8 loss against Carson earlier in the season by winning eight of nine doubles matces and Saarem also swept his matches. The difference of the match came when the Lancers were able to win several close matches.

Saarem was able to turn around the result against Carson’s Spencer Brinson in a battle of two of the North’s top players. Brinson beat Saarem in the first meeting, but Saarem won on Tuesday 6-2.

Carson was able to win six of nine singles matches as Brinson won 6-0, 6-0, Adam Whitt won 6-2, 6-3 and Gordon Lee won 6-3, 6-2,

The Senators lost several close doubles matches as Jordan Rogers and Tyler Simms lost two close matches, 4-6, 5-7. Matt McDaniel and Thomas Hollenbeck-Pringle also lost 4-6 and Ricky Nugyen and Jon Kane lost 5-7 for Carson. Rogers and Simms picked up Carson’s only win in doubles 6-2.


The Carson High girls golf team was just edged out of qualifying for next week’s Northern 4A Tournament in Elko. The four teams to qualify were first place Douglas, second place Manogue, third place Galena and fourth place Damonte Ranch. Carson was in a three-way battled with Galena and Damonte for the last two spots and was just edged out.

“We just got beat,” Carson coach Terry Gingell said. “We just got nipped in the bud. It was a very, very tight race.”

The Senators turned in a solid effort on Tuesday in the final regular season Sierra League event hosted by Fallon, but it was just not enough. Chelsea Keating had her second straight round in the 80s as she fired an 84 and Julia Lapham shot a career best 86 for Carson.

Also for the Senators, Julia Lapham shot a 96, Katie Cowperthwaite had a 98, Whitney Nash fired a 100 and Lindsay Burroughs and Elayna Shine each fired a 102. “We actually had a pretty good day,” Gingell said. “The girls played well.”

Carson will have three individuals at next week’s zone event: Keating, Cowperthwaite and Nash.
