That was McCray-Cray: Devils beat Rocklin late

Coming to the plate with score tied and the bases loaded in the last inning of a playoff game, Davis High senior Quentin McCray was essentially stepping into the fantasy of every kid who grows up playing baseball. McCray turned that fantasy into a dream come true on Monday evening, sending a 1-1 pitch into the left-field […]

Davis boys dominate first playoff match

Playoffs are typically when the going gets tough for a team, but that wasn’t the case for the Davis High boys tennis squad on Tuesday. The Blue Devils opened the Sac-Joaquin Section team tournament by stomping Downey, 8-1, at the Davis High Tennis Complex. “I knew going in that obviously we’re the No. 1 seed, so I just […]

Visiting Eagles edge Blue Devils

The Davis High baseball team certainly didn’t lack for opportunities on Monday afternoon. But the Blue Devils stranded a total of 10 runners — seven of them in scoring position — in a 4-2 loss to Pleasant Grove on Senior Day, “We just gotta get some timely hitting,” DHS manager Dan Ariola said after the game. “We’ve been getting […]

Win over league-leading Jesuit has DHS on the brink of a baseball playoff berth

For the first four innings of Wednesday’s Delta League clash between improving Davis and first-place Jesuit, it was an old-fashioned pitchers’ duel. The last three frames, however, were all offense as the Blue Devils managed to outslug the visiting Marauders, 5-4, for the key conference win. The victory marked the second time DHS (13-11, 6-5 Delta League) has […]

Huge first frame lifts DHS to big baseball win

Prior to Monday, the most runs the Davis High baseball team had scored in a game was nine — in a win over Bella Vista in March. The Blue Devil blew past that mark in the first inning on Monday as they walloped visiting Monterey Trail, 20-0. DHS (12-11, 5-5 Delta League) didn’t waste any […]

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

For five innings, the Davis High baseball team held visiting Sheldon to almost zero offensive production. 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 […]

Blue Devil girls roll over Redwood

The goals came fast and furious Thursday night, as the Davis High girls lacrosse team hit the gas in the first half, then cruised to a comfortable 14-5 win over visiting Redwood. There were no surprises when it came to who was responsible for most of those Blue Devil goals. DHS’ scoring triumvirate of senior Sarah Bloise, and […]

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 […]
