There are subtle ways you can tell a great team from a good team, and the Davis High girls golf squad has looked and sounded like the former during its 2013 postseason run.

After playing near-perfect golf to take second place at the Division I tournament last week, the Blue Devils used a workmanlike performance on Monday to finish fifth at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters event.

For most prep squads, ending the season as the fifth-best team in the entire section — regardless of division — would be enough. But the Devils, and their crew of dedicated and talented golfers, wanted more.

On a nice day with light winds at The Reserve, a par-72 course in Stockton, DHS shot a r50.

Emily Masiel led the locals with an 81, Yuexin Xiang had an 85 and Hayley Mitchel shot a 90. JiHye Lee and Kaity Honeychurch each carded 97’s to finish the Blue Devils’ scoring and Casey Harris was one shot behind with a 98.

Rocklin won Monday’s event with a 429.

But there are two facts that the Davis players will keep in mind as they practice in the offseason with an eye toward getting back to this event next year.

The first is that the Devils shot a 430 on the same course just three weeks ago in winning the second Delta Valley Conference tournament. The other is that DHS edged Rocklin by two strokes at last week’s Division I tournament.

The Blue Devils lose Honeychurch, Mitchel and Lee to graduation, but the rest of the team returns.

“With the season now over, the team realizes they do have potential for getting there again next year,” said Davis coach Rhonda Mohr. “On the way home (Monday), they were already making a plan to continue practicing together and playing in more junior tournaments throughout the rest of the year until next season.

“This was a great year and we look forward to continuing with that success next year.”
