Golf is a team sport that forces individuals to challenge themselves, which is good for the Davis High girls squad because so far they have not encountered a challenge from another team.
For the second consecutive Delta Valley Conference match, the Blue Devils dominated the competition Wednesday.
DHS had five players in the top six and carded a 430 — 72 strokes better than the next team — at The Reserve in Stockton. Franklin was second with a team score of 502, followed by Laguna Creek (540) and Elk Grove (withdrew).
In the DVC opener on Sept. 26, the Blue Devils eclipsed Franklin by 60 strokes.
DHS coach Rhonda Mohr noted that The Reserve — a links-style course — is “a real target course” and “the greens were very fast.”
Blue Devil junior Emily Masiel found the right spots and speed en route to a course-best 77. DHS swept places three through six, with Hayley Mitchell (82), Yuexin Xiang (87), JiHye Lee (90) and Kaitlyn Honeychurch, who was tied with a Laguna Creek player at 94. Casey Harris carded a 96.
The Blue Devils will play host to the next DVC meet Thursday, Oct. 10, at Wildhorse. The first players tee off at noon.
