Davis gets two baseball wins in two days

Nonleague games may not count for much in the grand scheme of a season, but they’re still opportunities for players to show what they’ve got. Two Davis High baseball players did just that Saturday afternoon, as the Blue Devils topped Maria Carillo, 9-2, thanks in large part to the pitching of Daniel Henrickson and the defensive […]

DHS thunders past the Herd

Seven games into Delta League play, it appears that the Davis High baseball team may have turned a corner on Monday. A 7-1 victory over powerful Elk Grove reinforced that notion, as the Blue Devils (9-10, 3-4) smoked the Thundering Herd (11-7, 5-2) — who entered the game as the conference leader — in every […]

Over the hump? DHS baseball team wins late

Blowing leads has been a problem for the Davis High baseball team, and Friday’s Delta League clash with Grant looked like it would be more of the same, as the Blue Devils watched a four-run lead dissolve into a tie in the sixth inning. With the potent Pacer offense poised to give the locals another […]

Sheldon sinks Davis on the diamond

Unfortunately for the Blue Devils, the other two innings wound up being the difference, as the Huskies rode strong first and sixth frames to a 6-3 victory Monday. DHS (7-9, 1-3 Delta League) led 3-2 for most of the game, thanks to a […]

Izaak’s four hits go for naught in UCD loss to Fullerton

Offensive success in baseball is great. But in order to win games, you need to get strong performances on the mound and from the defense. UC Davis had the hitting, all right, but for most of Saturday, it didn’t have what it needed from its pitchers or in the field (four errors) as the Aggies fell to Cal State […]

Franklin hurler handcuffs DHS baseballers

When a pitcher is clicking, there’s not much the opposing team can do. The Davis High baseball team found itself on the wrong side of that situation on Wednesday afternoon, as the visiting Wildcats beat the Blue Devils for the second time in three days, this time 3-1. Franklin’s victory was powered by six strong […]

DHS volleyballers win Delta League opener

When you’re in a challenging conference like the Delta League figures to be, getting a good start becomes very important. The Davis High boys volleyball team did just that on Tuesday sweeping visiting Elk Grove, 25-12, 25-22, 25-23, at the Cage. The Blue Devils trailed only three times in the match — and managed to tie things up […]

Outstanding DHS girls season comes to an end

A 27-4 record. Undefeated in league play. An 18-game winning streak. Three All-Delta League selections and the conference’s Coach of the Year award. “Successful” is an understatement for this magical 2014-15 Lady Blue Devil basketball season. But all good things must come to an end, and host McClatchy provided that end as Davis High fell, 77-54, on Saturday to […]

WOODLAND — For the second straight game to open the season, the Davis High baseball team went without a hit in the first three innings of Friday’s contest at Clark Field.

Winning close games is the key for DHS softballers

* Editor’s note: This is the seventh in a 13-part series previewing the Davis High spring sports. Luck is a maddeningly important aspect of high school sports. In softball, that luck often manifests itself in one-run games, where even the smallest break in one team’s direction can be the determining factor between a win and a […]

Lady Devils are on to the SJS semis

It’s hard to believe there’s been a more entertaining playoff game in the history of Davis High girls basketball. Playing in front of a standing-room-only crowd at The Cage on Thursday, the Lady Blue Devils triumphed over Lincoln, 74-67, in an overtime outing that had more twists and turns than Lombard Street. The win, DHS’ 18th in a row, sent […]
