Seniors send Blue Devils past St. Francis at Schaal

When the Davis High girls water polo team celebrated Senior Night with a 12-6 victory over rival St. Francis on Tuesday, it was fitting that the Blue Devils’ top scorers were Colby Stapleton and Mara Dominguez.

The two are four-year starters who have helped DHS win Sac-Joaquin Section titles in each of their first three prep seasons, beating the Troubadours in each championship contest.

Playing in front of a full house at UCD’s Schaal Aquatic Center, Stapleton had four goals, controlled much of the game from her center position and added two assists and three drawn exclusions.

Despite losing, the Devils made many key plays in Friday’s game

The 24-21 double-overtime loss suffered by the Davis High football squad on Friday night was one of the more heartbreaking defeats a team could endure. It was bad enough that the loss came on Senior Night, but speed with which the Blue Devils and their fans went from ecstasy to agony in the final minutes made it even tougher […]
