David City golf returned to the course after hosting a triangular and invite the previous week with two invites, the first a junior varsity invite April 22 in Wahoo then two days later in Palmyra and a triangular on Monday.
Will Danielson and Jordan Kracl kept a solid run of play alive on Monday at the David City Golf Course when both tied for the individual lead with a pair of 39s.
That plus three other rounds below 50 gave the Scouts an 11-stroke win over second place Shelby-Rising City. The Huskies had all five scores also below 50 but finished with 179 to 168 for the Scouts.
Following Danielson and Kracl was Ethan Zegers shooting 44 and Wiley Hein and Keyan Helgoth carding a pair of 46s.
Twin River took third with a team total of 204.
David City golfed in one of its largest tournaments of the season on April 24 when the Scouts competed against 16 other teams in Palmyra.

Lincoln Christian won silver with a score of 256 followed by 270 from Lincoln Lutheran.
David City won the gold standings behind solid rounds from Will Danielson and Jordan Kracl. Danielson won the gold division individual standings with a 76 while Kracl wasn't far behind in fourth with an 81.
Danielson was four strokes ahead of a golfer from Falls City in winning the individual medal. Ethan Zegers accounted for the third Scout score in the gold division, shooting 89 for 20th overall.
David City silver division scores were topped by Wiley Hein's 91 and a sixth-place showing followed by a 96 from Keyan Helgoth in 12th and Simon Schindler carding 109 for 26th.

David City took five participants to Wahoo and placed fourth overall with a total of 440. Wahoo took the top spot with 382, besting second place Douglas Count West by 30 shots.
Braden Harris of Wahoo shot the top round, putting together a 17-over 89 and besting teammate Hayden Greigo by five shots.
Kordell Abel led David City with a 97, shooting 50 on the front nine and 47 on the back. Hunter Betzen and Simon Schindler tied for the Scouts' runner-up on a pair of 109s.
Schindler shot 54-55. Betzen had a 57 on the front then cut five strokes on the back. Next in the running was Spencer Allen shooting a 125 and Hayden Forney carding 128.
"I was extremely proud of our junior varsity golfers on how they competed at the Wahoo JV invite on Monday. It is awesome to see that we could come away with a few medals and be competitive as a team," coach Tom Van Winkle said. "Hopefully this inspires some of the younger kids to continue to practice with a purpose and play a ton of golf this summer."
