Junior varsity Devils still working hard on the gridiron

It’s a frequent saying in sports that the score doesn’t reflect how close the actual game is.

DHS takes down Tokay in girls water polo

Based on their records coming into the girls water polo clash between Davis High (10-4) and Tokay (10-5), Tuesday’s matchup at Arroyo Pool should have been a close one.
