DHS girls golf runs roughshod over league

The Davis High girls golf team is to the Delta Valley Conference what Katniss is to the Hunger Games: a dominating force.

The Blue Devils wrapped up DVC play Wednesday not only with a conference title but also by placing six players on the all-league team.

DHS carded a 388, followed by Franklin (439), Laguna Creek (482) and Elk Grove (590).

The Blue Devils won the DVC title — a combination of four matches — by 295 strokes over Franklin.

On Wednesday, Emily Masiel paced DHS — which had four players score in the 70s — with an even round on the par-72 Wildhawk Golf Course in Sacramento.

“(It’s) a first for a Davis girls golf team — ever!” said DHS coach Rhonda Mohr, regarding the four 70s and six all-leaguers. “This is the best team Davis High girls golf has ever had.”

Masiel’s 72 gave her a total of 300 strokes in DVC matches, two strokes behind Franklin’s Kylie Fong, who won Wednesday’s match with a 69 and was tapped DVC MVP with a 298.

“Going into (Wednesday’s) match, Emily Masiel had a 1-stroke lead to be named the MVP,” Mohr said. “Emily noted she struggled (Wednesday) with her driver, even though she finished with a 72. And when opportunities presented themselves, her ball just wouldn’t fall in the cup.

“Giving credit to Fong, Masiel said, ‘Fong also created opportunities and took advantage of them,’ ” Mohr added.

Rounding out the top-seven finishers and remaining all-league members for the Blue Devils are Yuexin Xiang (76, 323), Hayley Mitchell (79, 331), Ji Hye Lee (78, 341), Kaitlyn Honeychurch (84, 347) and Casey Harris (83, 350).

DHS advanced to Divisionals, which begin with an 8 a.m. shotgun start Monday at Sunset Whitney in Rocklin.

“I’ve been watching the scores of the teams we’ll be facing,” Mohr said. “I think we’re right there with the other teams. I’m not saying we’re better, but I’m saying we can compete with them.”

The Blue Devils played on Sunset Whitney earlier in the season, placing third in a tournament. Mohr expects the Devils will get in a round on the course before Monday’s event.

“It’s not an easy course to play,” she said. “There are more blind shots and more trouble — wooded areas, creeks all along the side. I think it’s a little more of a physical walk.”
