Prep roundup: Carson girls soccer keeps hold onto second place
RENO — Lindy Lehman scored on a cross from Nahim Gutierrez in the opening minutes of the second half to break a scoreless tie and give Carson a 1-0 win over Damonte Ranch in a Sierra League girls soccer match Tuesday night.
The win gives the second-place Senators a 10-2 record with four games left to play. The Senators have already clinched a playoff berth, and are now looking for a first-round home game.
“We had quite a few opportunities, especially in the second half,” CHS coach Greg Lehman said. “Their goalie made some great saves. Damonte was really hustling tonight.”

Carson girls fail to move on
RENO — Carson freshman Jill Beglin missed by five shots of qualifying for next week’s Division I state tournament.
Beglin, who opened the Division I regionals with an 87 at Hidden Valley, shot 92 Tuesday at Sommersett to finish in 12th place with a 36-hole total of 179. Camry Aten was 33rd with a 223 and Angelika Morrison was 44th with a 271.
McQueen won the event with a 698 and Spanish Springs was second with a 730.
The only local qualifier was Douglas’ Lauren Hickam, who shot 173 and finished eighth overall.
“I thought Jill would have to shoot in the 80s again today,” CHS coach Wade Greenlee said.
“Her score was still very impressive. She will have plenty of opportunities to play at state. It was a successful season, and I’m proud of my players.”
