Impressive wins in the first two Delta Valley Conference girls golf tournaments had Davis High coach Rhonda Mohr feeling good about this yearÕs team. ThursdayÕs performance at the third DVC meet has Mohr feeling great.
All five Blue Devil golfers broke 90 Ñ a first in program history, according to Mohr Ñ as they captured first place at the par-71 Bartley Cavanaugh Golf Club in Sacramento.
ÒWith an unseasonable 95-degree (day) and with humidity on the course, these girls did exceptionally well,Ó Mohr said. ÒWe have never had all the girls shoot in the 80s. This is a real accomplishment and they deserve it. I am so very proud of this team!Ó
Led by Haley RiesenbergÕs 83, DHS totaled 434 strokes to finish ahead of event host Laguna Creek (479) and Franklin (563). Riesenberg, a senior, took second overall, as Davis golfers finished 2-6 in the individual standings.
ÒHaley said she had a rough two first holes but pulled it together,Ó Mohr said. ÒShe shot an 83 with 8 out of 9 pars on the back nine.Ó
Senior Karishma Jain took third place overall with a blistering 86.
ÒWhen I asked her how she was able to score an 86, she said her putting was great,Ó Mohr said of Jain. ÒShe had a couple of really lucky shots and overall felt really great throughout the round.Ó
Blue Devil freshman Jihye Lee matched classmate Kaity Honeychurch by shooting an 88, and senior Lynzee Kornelly carded an 89.
DHS will be back on the course Wednesday for the fourth DVC tournament at Wildhawk Golf Course in Sacramento.
