We all know there is a rivalry between the North and South in the state of Nevada. That is also the case when it comes to golf. While the rivalries are friendly in nature, it is still nice to win. And that is exactly what the Women’s Southern Nevada Golf Association did in 2023 when they went up North and won the prestigious Silver Cup Matches 21-19.
“It really came down to the last match for us,” said Regina Quintero, co-captain of the South team. “Robin Rakusin, who played for the North last year, beat Patricia Hiatt on the 17th hole and that’s where it was decided.”
The North still leads the overall series 17-13, but it was the first time since 2001 that the South had won a match as the visitor. It was only the fourth time in the even’s history that an away team won.
South Team Members: Ronda Henderson, Brittany Bronson, Gabriele Buonacorsi, Carrie Langevin, Brenda Knott, Regina Quintero, Christina Brandt, Laura Smith, Debbie Love, Rusty Beckel, Sherry Jackson, Kathy Yee, Autumn Dorini, Juliet Herbert, Deborah Headley, Jill Morrison, Karen Schroeder, Leinani Yosaitis, Robin Rakusin, Shana Pederson.
