Good Morning, Carson Valley: Nov. 5

GARDNERVILLE, Nev., Nov. 5, 2014 – We have full Douglas County election results here.

That being said, the Douglas girls soccer team is now gaining national attention, rising to No. 25 in the country according to and No. 81 in the country according to (computer formula).

The Lady Tigers improved to 23-0 on the year overall with a 4-1 win over McQueen in the first round of the regional playoffs Tuesday night. They’ll face Spanish Springs (a team that battled them throughout the match in the regular season before Douglas prevailed 1-0) Thursday night at 5 p.m. at Carson High School.

Not to be lost in the soccer team’s success, the Tiger volleyball team pulled off a big win of its own Tuesday night, upending higher-seeded McQueen in Reno in five games. The Lady Tigers now move to Thursday’s regional semifinal against Sierra League champ Manogue at North Valleys High School (5:15 p.m.)
