Blue Devils swing for a sweep

By
October 1, 2010 |

It was a long day for the Davis High girls golf team as it hosted the first of four Delta Valley Conference tournaments on Thursday at Wildhorse.

But as the strokes piled up, the Blue Devils werenÕt feeling much distress. ThatÕs because it was the other DVC squads that were putting up big numbers and making the tournament drag on.

DHSÕ scoring six swept the top three places and finished the course in 459 shots, an amazing 79 strokes better than second-place Laguna Creek. Franklin was third at 590, while Elk Grove, Grant and Monterey Trail had individual players, but not enough for team scores.

Senior Haley Riesenberg paced the Devils Ñ and the entire field Ñ with an 84, and junior Kayla Campanelli took second at 89. Karishma Jain, another Davis senior, finished in third place with a 91.

The Blue Devils also got strong rounds from freshman Jihye Lee, who shot a 94, as well as freshman Kaity Honeychurch and senior Lynzee Kornelly, each of whom finished the course in 101 strokes.

ÒIt is rare to see scores in the 80Õs and 90Õs at the first league tournament so that was really great,Ó DHS coach Rhonda Mohr said. ÒHaley is just really consistent and she plays a smart game. She had a great score and she didnÕt even think she putted that well, so imagine what she would have done if she had.Ó

The great scores were a bonus for the Devils, who were happy just to get back to competition after a nearly three-week layoff. Mohr said the girls used the time to compete against each other, which brought out the best in all of her players.

Ò(The time away from competition also) gave us a chance to work on team and individual goals,Ó Mohr added.

With such a strong start to the league season, the future looks bright for DHS, which is now all but guaranteed a spot in the postseason.

The next DVC tournament is hosted by Laguna Creek, next Thursday at Mather Golf Club in Elk Grove.
