Score another one for the Davis High boys golf team in a season-long competition against the Anemoi, the greek gods of wind.

After facing gusty conditions throughout the spring, the Blue Devils held steady against the wind again on Monday at Paradise Golf Course in Fairfield, taking second place at the Division I North Tournament. An out-of-this-world performance by Jesuit put the Marauders on top with 378, DHS shot a 404 and Oak Ridge, with a 414, rounded out the event’s qualifiers for next Monday’s Sac-Joaquin Section Masters tournament.

“It was another really, really breezy day and it really got into a lot of people’s heads because it’s going to be tough on your score,” said Devil coach Karl Ronning. “Jesuit and Davis handled it really well. (Our previous) experience really helped.”

As it has been all year, the Davis players were a model of consistency, with all five scoring between 79 and 83. Seniors Scott Raber and Jordan Baroody landed in the top 10 with 79s, Alex Blumenfeld carded an 81, Chase Dossa came back to the clubhouse with an 83 and Charlie Klein shot an 83. Even Aditya Jagadish, the Blue Devils’ sixth nonscoring player, had a solid 96.

“The real difference is the putting,” Ronning said. “When the wind’s blowing it can be a real challenge, but you look at our scores and they are so consistent, between 79 and 83.”

Jesuit’s Ben Corfee, a Davis resident, was the individual medalist after shooting a blistering 72.

But while the Marauders had their day on Monday, Ronning believes DHS’ best performance is yet to come.

The Masters tournament will be played on at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton. On another windy day last month, the Devils shot an impressive 390 at the course to win the first Delta Valley Conference tournament.

“We have a real positive vibe going into next week and I think we have a chance to do really well,” Ronning said. “It’s one tournament at a time from here on out and we are as good as anybody.”
