Davis will wave as Tour of California passes it by

Back in 2010, Davis was climbing to the top of the cycling world. The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame had just moved here from New Jersey, and the Amgen Tour of California was starting a stage of the race downtown for the second straight year. The city’s redevelopment agency was helping fund the future of the […]

Brown, dramatic finish carry Aggie gymnasts

While they seem back on track, the UC Davis gymnasts weren’t exactly on the beam Friday night. Nonetheless, before an appreciative home crowd of almost 1,000 at The Pavilion, the Aggie women used a dazzling performance by Alexis Brown to nip San Jose State in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation showdown. UCD’s 194.375 was its […]

Haynes as classy, concerned as ever

Mike Haynes has always stood up for what he felt was important. When the Sullivan family — one-time owners of the New England Patriots — tried to do things on the cheap, the NFL Hall of Fame cornerback Haynes held out, supported other teammates, but eventually got a ticket to Oakland. This year, as the […]

Collective efforts land UC Davis football a bountiful crop

Sometimes it takes a village. Speaking before a standing-room-only gathering Wednesday of athletic staff members, football benefactors and Aggie Nation faithful, UC Davis coach Ron Gould praised a programwide effort in landing 16 recruits who “can help lead us into championship contention in the years ahead.” Defensive coordinator Bert Watts told The Enterprise that Aggie […]

Playoff implications for Lady Devils’ game with Franklin

Thank you, Monterey Trail. While the Davis High girls were overcoming a particularly pesky Sheldon on Wednesday, the Mustangs brought Franklin down a notch. The Lady Blue Devils’ 68-59 victory — coupled with the Wildcats’ 53-50 loss at Monterey Trail — means DHS can go after that all-important fourth-place Delta League tie with Franklin when the […]

British standout Nichol commits to UCD women’s soccer

If you’re a UC Davis women’s soccer fan, the past five months should make you want to do backflips. Finishing the 2015 season at 10-7-2 — the second-best Division I record for these Aggies — UCD posted wins over the Mountain West Conference three-time reigning champ San Diego State, West Coast Conference foe St. Mary’s […]

Devils boys have 5 final games to dig deep

“I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect,” Davis High boys basketball coach Dan Gonzalez says of a Blue Devils playoff berth after Monday’s 71-57 defeat at Jesuit. “A lot of people would have to lose … and we’d have to win out. “But I don’t see why we can’t expect at least a couple of more […]

Lady Blue Devils battling to improve standing

“We showed a lot of fight in this game,” Lady Blue Devils coach Heather Highshoe believes. The second-year mentor was talking about Monday’s 69-60 setback at St. Francis, the Delta League’s pace-setting basketball outfit. The Troubadours (18-4, 9-0) have opened a two-game bulge on Elk Grove (15-7, 7-2) and seem to be the only Sac-Joaquin Section […]

‘Grinder’ Aggies win 5th straight versus Cal Poly

Coach Jim Les calls his players “grinders.” If ever the Aggies fit their coach’s description, it was Saturday night when UC Davis overcame a couple of cold streaks and methodically posted a 66-52 victory over visiting Cal Poly. The win put UCD at 4-3 in the Big West Conference and — depending upon the late […]

Near-perfect Aggies rout Gauchos, 80-51

UC Davis women, 80. UC Santa Barbara 51. Looking back, how in the world did these Gauchos beat the Aggies on Jan. 21? It is a question the UCD women asked themselves for almost two weeks. Then — after Thursday’s home loss to Long Beach State — the locals were red-in-the-face mad. “We knew the […]

Let’s make Davis once again a football town

It’s time to get serious again about football in this town. Five seasons have come and gone since UC Davis has posted a winning record. The Blue Devils haven’t been above .500 for longer than that. From the seats I sit in, waaaay up here, I see some nifty things going on at the high school. I […]
