Davis American 9-10s eliminated by Dixon

When the second inning ended 3-2, it looked as if Tuesday night’s Little League District 64 9-10 All-Star Tournament clash between Davis American and Dixon was going to be a high-scoring one for both sides.

Orioles grind out Majors victory

There aren’t many things in sports that are tougher to come back from than a comeback.

The Davis Little League Orioles […]

Orioles overwhelm Astros for AL championship

It’s usually not a recipe for success for a baseball team to have its hit total doubled by the opponent. However, the Davis Little League AAA Orioles managed to make it work Monday night, blowing out the Astros, 12-0, in five innings despite collecting only three hits to the Astros’ six.

Devils crowned as section tennis kings

It’s been a while since someone really challenged the Davis High tennis team. The Blue Devils ripped through Delta League play in undefeated fashion, and kept rolling through the first three rounds of the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.

Devils drop Jesuit on their way to tennis finals

For the past two years, Jesuit has been the only thing in the way of a Davis High boys tennis Sac-Joaquin Section title as the Marauders beat the Blue Devils in the championship match both years.

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 […]
