SACRAMENTO — Heading into Monday’s final Delta Valley Conference tournament at Wildhawk Golf Course, there was no doubt that the Davis High boys team would capture the 2014 league title. The only question was the amount it would win by.

The answer — after a day that saw Blue Devil sophomore Andrew Arnheiter shoot a blistering round to clinch the DVC Player of the Year award — was 197 strokes.

Paced by Arnheiter’s 2-under 70, DHS had all six of its golfers, including nonscoring finisher Preston Walchli, shoot in the 70’s. The result was a 375 team total.

“It was more than just winning the title,” said Devil coach Karl Ronning. “What’s so impressive about these guys is how much they’ve improved since the beginning of the year. Then, if everybody played their best, we would be in the 400s.

“And it’s not just talent, it’s the kids being willing to work hard and not letting the pressure get to them.”

Arnheiter’s Monday score was good for first place individually, in front second-place junior teammate Patrick Cajandig (75). Davis senior Cyrrus Espino (76) was fourth, with sophomore Sam Yamauchi and senior Brandon Strong carding 77s to tie for fifth.

“I’m so happy for Andrew to have that breakthrough round (Monday),” Ronning said. “He’s made so much improvement, especially from last year, and the kids see him working so hard.”

The Monday results solidified the All-DVC teams, with MVP Arnheiter joined by Yamauchi, Walchli, Cajandig and Espino on the squad. Laguna Creek’s Tim Fortier and Franklin’s Alex Dunning rounded out the all-league selections.

The Blue Devils completed the regular season at Wildhawk just two days after making the trek through some severe weather to play the Cal Invitational at Plumas Pines on Saturday.

At that event, Strong shot a 74 to take third individually and help DHS (388) finish second to Granite Bay (383).

Yamauchi and Arnheiter carded 78s while Espino and Cajandig each finished at 79 for the Devils, who drove north for more than five hours on Friday to reach the event.

“It was cold and the wind was blowing,” Ronning said. “But it’s a beautiful course and we played really well.”

Despite the two impressive performances to end the season, Ronning said Davis still has better golf to play. And the locals will need to play well with a powerful field expected at next Monday’s North Divisional tournament.

The veteran coach added that teams like Jesuit, Oak Ridge, Granite Bay, Del Oro, Rocklin, Vacaville and Napa will make that event “probably the strongest of all of the Divisionals.”

Four squads will earn spots to advance to the SJS Masters. The Blue Devils took fifth at last year’s Divisional tourney.
