Foster steps down as Lady Blue Devil basketball coach

After three seasons as Davis High’s girls basketball coach, Karen Foster announced she is stepping down. “The personal reasoning is … about all the things my family has going on (the next two years),” Foster, 48, told The Enterprise. “I decided to put my two daughters first. “Of the many titles I’ve had over the […]

Landry evolves into UCD women’s lacrosse leader

Local lacrosse fans have seen these Elizabeth Landry moves for three seasons … The UC Davis midfielder collects the draw, blazes toward the opponent’s goal, dekes a couple of defenders and — whoosh! — her powerful shot shakes the net.

UCD staff allows 19 hits in Causeway rout

The UC Davis baseballers have been knocking the ball around a little bit — recently taking two of three games from visiting Long Beach State after almost beating Stanford. Scoring 28 runs in their last five games has been a confidence-builder. But Tuesday, in a nonleague contest between the home-standing Aggies and Sacramento State, even […]

‘Boston Strong,’ meet ‘Davis Strong’ at Monday’s marathon

They call it “Boston Strong.” It’s the resolve the people of that New England city have shown in recovering from the April 15, 2013, terror bombing that killed three people and left 264 injured near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. On Monday, the 118th running of the world’s most famous 26-mile tour will […]

Bitners’ memory honored with Little League game for the ages

North Davis Elementary School teacher Paulene Bitners will live long in our memories. And fittingly, a Little League game played between her son Nolan’s Dodgers and the Giants earlier this week will live on in local baseball lore. Bitners died Sunday of breast cancer. The popular and influential kindergarten and third-grade teacher was a fixture […]

Halden Invitational to draw 30 high schools Saturday

It’s the biggest edition yet of the resurrected Halden Invitational track-and-field gathering. When 30 high schools (and six junior highs and youth club squads) assemble at Davis High’s Brown Stadium this Saturday, almost 1,000 athletes will compete from 10 a.m. (sprints) through a Distance Carnival which, last year, wrapped up near 9 p.m. “We’re excited,” […]

Gould likes early workouts with UCD newcomers fitting in

It’s only a week into spring practice, and the second edition of coach Ron Gould’s UC Davis football team seems to be getting an early handle on all things Aggie. “I’ve been pleasantly surprised,” Gould said. “They’ve been managing all different formations. Guys are running around and playing fast … and that’s something we’re very […]

Trask picks up first win of 2014 at Elk Grove

ELK GROVE — He came into the game with a 0.58 earned run average. He was hitting .367 and was the team’s RBI co-leader.

Where does vacation end and my job start?

After having spent much of the past two weeks on vacation, it’s occurred to me that my whole life has evolved into what others might consider “vacation.” The first hint that my time away from the office was just an extension of the privilege with which I’m charged here at The Enterprise came about five […]

Blue Devil boys serve notice to DVC golfers

Just like that, the Davis High boys built a 63-stroke lead on their Delta Valley Conference golf rivals as sophomore Sam Yamauchi’s 2-over 74 paced the Blue Devils on Wednesday. In carding a team 396 on its home Wildhorse Golf Course, DHS drove, chipped and putted past Franklin and Elk Grove, which finished in a […]

34th-ranked Aggie gymnasts hope to turn heads in Arkansas

Over the years, UC Davis has produced some outstanding female gymnasts. Katie Yamamura (2013), Tiffany Chan and Amber Weddell (both 2004) and Erica Ruelas (2000) are graduates who come to mind. But from a team standpoint? No previous Aggie squad holds a candle to what coach John Lavallee’s 2014 women have accomplished together. And now, […]
