Walchli wins again to pace DHS golfers

The Davis High boys golf team has already proved this season that it can play well in all kinds of weather. But on Monday, at the second Delta Valley Conference tournament of the year, the Blue Devils showed they could handle even changeable conditions on the same day.

After starting the event off well under sunny skies and with little wind, DHS stayed on top of its game as the weather turned nasty, braving a steady rain in the final hour of the tourney to take first place at 388. Franklin was second, completing the Wildhawk Course in 421 strokes, while Elk Grove (452) was third.

Devil sophomore Preston Walchli was the individual medalist for the second straight DVC meeting, shooting a 1-under 71 on Monday. Senior Chase Dossa’s 72 was good for second overall as all five Davis scorers were in the top seven individual places.

But it was Walchli who exemplified the locals’ consistency. The 10th-grader carded nine consecutive pars to start the day, then birdied No. 10. A bogey on 11 was canceled out by a birdie on the par-5 14th hole and Walchli shot pars the rest of the way.

“You go through different phases in golf,” DHS coach Karl Ronning explained. “First you learn to play, then you learn to play recreationally. Then you have to learn to play competitively … with that extra level of pressure.

“(Now, Walchli) is just brimming with confidence. He’s not getting too high and not getting too low. He’s always moving forward and not worrying about what he did (before), just like Chase.”

The Blue Devils’ one-two punch at the top was supported by Michael Chen’s fifth-place 81 and 82s from Cyrrus Espino and Spencer Salk, who tied for seventh.

“It was another solid day for Michael and Cyrrus,” Ronning said. “Spencer is a kid who came in as a freshman with no experience and now he’s getting close to being a really solid golfer.

“The kids are learning to play with a positive attitude and with that, scores are going to come down even more.”

Davis’ Patrick Cajandig also played well, getting to the clubhouse in 84 shots. He was the Devils’ nonscoring competitor, but his score would have been near the top of any other team in the field.

Next week, DHS heads to the Haggin Oaks Arcade Course for the third DVC tournament. The event is hosted by Grant next Monday.
