Yoder started his round with a birdie-eagle binge and played well the rest of the day to help Polk County post a team score of 330, defeating Mitchell by 13 strokes.
Hendersonville took third with a 344, with Landrum in fourth at 410. Chase did not field a full team.
Avery Harden had an 81 for the Wolverines, with Evan Jones carding an 84 and Myles Menetre a 92. Casey Beiler added a 95, with Jaden Chupp scoring a 109 and Jacob Morgan finishing with a 120.
Ian Wright led Hendersonville with an 81.
Polk County will return to the course on Monday, facing Mountain Foothills 7 Conference schools in a match at Cleghorn Golf and Sports Club.
