The Ripon High boys golf team completed its commanding conquest of the Trans-Valley League on Monday, winning the final tournament at Swenson Park Golf Course in Stockton.

Spearheaded by league MVP Chad Flory and Most Outstanding Golfer Trent Vink, the Indians tallied a team score of 401. Escalon finished as runner-up with a 452 and was followed by Livingston (490), Hughson (513) and Hilmar (528).

Ripon easily won the previous six TVL tournaments during the regular season, with Flory winning the last five. He did not participate in the opener.

Flory was the TVL finals low medalist with a 72, while Vink turned in a solid 79. Jeremie Little (81), Vince Uecker (84), Jacob Baird (85) and Gage Anderson (88) all made the all-league team.

Both Ripon and Escalon, along with the top six individuals from the rest of the schools, have qualified for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V Tournament set for next Monday, May 9 at Merced Golf & Country Club.
