Garrett, Gonzalez headed to LTCC for soccer
Two Carson High soccer stars are part of the 2017 Lake Tahoe Community College recruiting class.
Defender Peter Garrett, the 2016 Gatorade Player of the Year in Nevada and an all-league performer for the Senators, and forward-midfielder Alex Gonzalez are part of the 26-player recruiting class announced by LTCC head coach Nicholas R. Arbelaez.
The class includes 14 players from the Northern Nevada area. There are several California players in the class as well as several foreign players. Eleven players come from the highly successful Sagebrush 98 club squad.
“Peter is a skillfull center back with good distribution skills,” Arbelaez said. “He is fast, has great timing and difficult to beat. He is very good in the air.
“Alex is a speedy wing player with the ability to get behind the defense and score goals. He is very smart on the field.”
Carson girls visit Reed in opener
Carson High’s girls basketball team, third-place finishers in the Sierra League at 7-9, visit Reed, the second-place team out of the High Desert, in the quarterfinals of the NIAA 4A regional playoffs today.
The Senators had an opportunity to host a first-round game, but they lost at Douglas on Saturday.
Reed enters the game as a heavy favorite after an 82-42 win over the Senators in December.
Carson’s top scorer is Lauren Lemburg, who has several 20-point games to her credit. Haley Garver, who missed the Douglas game, will be a game-time decision. That duo has carried the load this year.
The key for Carson will be at the defensive end. The Raiders like to penetrate and dish to the corner for open 3-pointers. Taylor Johnson averages around 15 a game, while Vanessa Hernandez and Autumn Wadsworth are at 10 a contest. Former Douglas star Janae Bluehorse averages around nine per contest.
“They are a good team,” CHS coach Melissa Larsen said. “They all can shoot, they drive and they like to shoot 3s. We have to defend that. They also play really good defense and trap real well. We have to move the ball and attack the basket.”
