Kennard-Dale finished in the middle of the pack in the 2018 York-Adams League Division II golf standings.
In 2019, however, the Rams may be poised to contend for a title.
K-D started the D-II season with a first-place finish on Monday in a tournament at Mountain View Golf Club near Fairfield.
The Rams, who were fourth in D-II a season ago, finished with a 338 total on Monday, which was 12 shots better than second-place York Suburban. Dover was third at 357, followed by defending D-II champion Susquehannock at 361. West York was fifth at 386, followed by Gettysburg at 409 and Eastern York at 437.
K-D's Josh Behles was the individual medalist with a 4-over-par 75. Dover's Trevor Snyder was next at 76. West York's Athen Sacher was the only other player to break 80 after shooting a 79. The top five was rounded out by Susquehannock's Andrew Roberts at 82 and K-D's Alexandra Smith at 84.
