Pentathlon to return to Davis April 3

For the second consecutive year, the unique, and ancient, competition that is the pentathlon returns to Davis on April 3. Combining the skills that a 19th century warrior was thought to require: running, swimming, shooting, fencing and horseback riding, the modern version of the event  in Davis features all but equestrian (due to the immense skill […]

Legacy fall short of third consecutive men’s title

For the first time in three seasons, the Davis Legacy men’s team isn’t champions of the NorCal Adult Premier League, one of the various regional fourth-division leagues in the United States. After winning both the spring and summer seasons — the NCAPL runs three times a year — the Legacy dropped a 2-1 result to San Francisco […]

Curtin, Musgrove shine on Senior Night

On a night where the Davis High wrestling team honored its five graduating seniors, it was the underclassmen who made the most noise. Not that the seniors performed poorly — Robbie Hughes and Quinn Davies, the only seniors to wrestle, both picked up victories. It was just that Hughes and Davies picked up their victories with […]

Anibaba heads to Houston with high expectations, level head

For the fourth time in four years, Davis High graduate Jalil Anibaba is headed to a new Major League Soccer club in a new city. But Anibaba, who is known in MLS circles as a versatile defender and great locker room presence, isn’t unhappy with his continued displacement. He realizes, that as David Halberstam famously […]

Careless Aggies drop second conference game

Sometimes it just isn’t your night. The effort’s there, the hustle, the preparation… But even Michael Jordan had a bad night or two. On Thursday, the UC Davis women’s basketball team’s 75-62 loss to Long Beach State fit the definition of a “bad night.” “I thought we started off the game pretty confidently,” said Aggie head […]

Wrestlers fall in penultimate dual meet

Victory didn’t come for the Davis High wrestling team, again, in Wednesday’s tri-meet against Pleasant Grove and Monterey Trail at the latter’s gym in Elk Grove. But that’s not to say there weren’t positives from both matches as the outnumbered Devils continued to grind toward likely individual postseason success. First up, the Blue Devils dropped a […]

Wrestling takes slew of medals in Modesto

Though there were no scheduled varsity wrestling tournaments this past weekend, the Davis High wrestling team still took to the mat, with several regular varsity athletes outperforming their peers at the Enochs JV and girls tournament in Modesto. Leading the way this weekend was sophomore Owen Musgrove, who continued his emergence on the Devil wrestling […]

Devil alums race toward Olympics; First stop: the mud

Mud, rain and creeks: These were the obstacles that Davis High alums Kaitlin Gregg Goodman and Chelsea Reilly Sodaro faced in their latest race. In the United States, we call this a Tough Mudder, or something of the like. In Scotland, they call it “cross country.” Running for the U.S. national team on a 6K […]

Blue Devil wrestlers pick up first dual win since 2014

It was a long time coming for the Davis High wrestling team, but after going winless in Delta League dual play in 2015, the Blue Devils finally picked up a victory, their first in two years. At a four-team meet at Sheldon High in Elk Grove on Wednesday, DHS split a pair of matches, narrowly edging […]

More individual wrestling success for DHS

After posting strong individual results in last week’s season-opening Delta League dual meet, the Davis High wrestling team continued its progress toward becoming a top-tier program with four wrestlers posting strong results at two different tournaments over the weekend. In Fairfield at the Armijo High Tournament, senior Quinn Davies placed third in his weight class with […]

Aggie women are 3-0 in Big West for first time

Basketball is a streaky sport — a game of runs. For a quarter Thursday, the UC Davis women’s basketball team was on top of the world, scoring at will while solidly defending the visiting UC Irvine squad. But as quickly as they had pulled away, the Aggies let their opponents back in, before rallying to an […]

Devil individual wrestlers shine in defeats

With just seven healthy athletes, the Davis High boys wrestling squad came into Tuesday’s dual meet against Franklin and Elk Grove knowing that it almost certainly would not have enough points to win the team matchups. But the spectre of team defeat didn’t take anything away from the individual performances of those seven Blue Devils, who […]

DHS snoozes for one key quarter in defeat at Sleep Train

SACRAMENTO — Sometimes the Davis High boys basketball team plays like the Sacramento Kings of three years ago — a group of athletes that can’t get the right shots to fall. Sometimes the Blue Devils play like the Kings of the past few weeks — an exciting, rag-tag group of underdogs who can beat anyone on any […]

Forrester’s big night not enough for Devil girls on Kings’ court

SACRAMENTO — Charles Dickens famously opened “A Tale of Two Cities” with the line: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” In the Davis High girls basketball team’s 67-59 loss to rival St. Francis at Sleep Train Arena on Friday night, this could not have been more true. The best of times: sophomore […]
