The Davis High boys golf team took a break from dominating the Delta Valley Conference to play a nonleague tournament on Saturday, with similar results.

Nice outings by youngsters Preston Walchli and Spencer Salk were supported by senior Chase Dossa — all three players carded scores in the 70s — as the Blue Devils took second place in the Cal Invitational at Plumas Pines Golf Course.

Granite Bay won the event with a total score of 377 and DHS was the only other team to break 400 with its 397.

Walchli, who has taken first place individually in each of the first three DVC tournaments this spring, tied for fifth on Saturday by shooting a 74. Salk tied for 13th with his 77 and Dossa finished the course in 78 strokes.

Rounding out the Devil competitors were Cyrrus Espino (81), Patrick Cajandig (87) and Sam Yamauchi (87). The lowest score was thrown out.

The locals will finish the regular season on Tuesday at The Reserve in Stockton with the fourth conference tournament of the year. Barring a big collapse, Davis should be crowned DVC champs after the event and Walchli is expected to win the league Most Valuable Player award.

Next week, the Blue Devils will host the Division I North playoff tournament at Wildhorse.
