Rare mistakes cost DHS in baseball loss

One half-inning is all it took for Vintage to break a deadlocked game wide open. After playing relatively clean for most of Friday’s nonleague matchup, the Davis High baseball team imploded in the top of the seventh inning, giving up five runs, which were the difference in a 7-2 home loss. “We just didn’t play […]

Advantage, Davis: Devils beat Franklin in a key DVC baseball game

After dropping a close matchup at Franklin on Tuesday, Davis High missed out on a chance to stand alone in first place in the Delta Valley Conference. Getting a rematch Thursday — the third meeting between the two teams that split the first two — the Blue Devils weren’t going to let the Wildcats win the […]

Freshman Renaud comes through for DHS girls lacrosse

Freshman Camille Renaud had 10.8 seconds to find a way to tie the score of Friday night’s girls lacrosse game. If she scored, it would send her Davis High squad into overtime. If she didn’t, the Blue Devils would lose a Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference game to visiting Oak Ridge. Renaud only needed 2 1/2 […]

Mustangs stall against DHS baseball team

When a team has 11 at-bats in the first inning, that is usually a pretty good sign. The Davis High baseball team saw that happen in the bottom of first Thursday, then finished off a 12-1 mercy-rule beatdown of visiting Monterey Trail. After pitcher Walter Bolle retired the first three Mustang hitters, the Blue Devil […]

A Raley Field tie: Davis and Jesuit end in a deadlock

WEST SACRAMENTO — Clutch. Big-time. At his best under pressure. Davis High fans are running out of adjectives to describe the performances of senior Brett Bloomfield. On Friday night at Raley Field, the Blue Devil baseball team used some timely hitting and a masterful pitching performance from Bloomfield in order to hold onto a 4-4 […]

DHS offense sputters against Eagles

Baseball isn’t just about getting hits — those hits have to be timely. After enduring a flurry of runs from visiting Pleasant Grove in the second inning, the Davis High baseball team couldn’t get the hits when it needed them and lost, 7-1, on Tuesday. The Blue Devils (3-2) saw a three-game winning streak snapped, while […]

Revenge is sweet as Devils stick it Monte Vista

Mark Bruemmer could barely walk. His legs and calves were both shot after a long, hard-fought battle. But the pain was worth it as the Davis High boy’s lacrosse team defeated nemesis Monte Vista — the same squad that had knocked the Blue Devils out of the playoffs the past two years — 7-6 on […]

DHS scores late to edge Woodland on the diamond

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win nonetheless. In a sixth-inning rally, the Davis High baseball team got just enough offense to slip past visiting Woodland, 2-1, on Friday afternoon at DHS. Taz Ahmed pitched great for the Wolves, but not until after the Blue Devils threatened in the bottom of the first. With […]

It’s new-look lacrosse for DHS girls

The 2014 season will be the start of a new era for the Davis High girls lacrosse team. Nine standouts — with names like Kylie Drexel, Lani Chang, Kiki Tanaka and Kelly Chuck — have graduated, leaving Blue Devil head coach Jenn Morris with a younger squad this year. “When you lose a big group […]

Big Five have DHS diamond crew ready to sparkle

Attention, Delta Valley Conference: the Davis High baseball team is still loaded and is on track to chase its third consecutive DVC title. With the season opener set for Tuesday at Vacaville, veteran coach Dan Ariola liked what he saw from his Blue Devils in a recent scrimmage with St. Mary’s: “We had a good […]

DHS boys lacrosse still strong despite key losses

All-time saves leader goalkeeper Will McPherson — gone. All-time takeaway leader Rudy Buhlman — gone. All-time scoring leader Mikie Schlosser — gone. With the loss of three “all-time” Davis High greats to graduation, some may expect the boy’s lacrosse team to go through a rebuilding year. “You can’t replace guys like Mikie and Rudy, it just […]

Devil boys let one slip away on Senior Night

Coming into its Senior Night on Tuesday, the Davis High boys basketball team knew that its goal of making it to the postseason for the second consecutive season was not attainable. But despite that knowledge, the Blue Devils refused to quit, even against the powerful Pacers from Grant. DHS put up one of its best […]

Valentine’s Day heartbreaker: DHS girls fall to Monterey Trail

A quick glance at the statistics from the Davis High girls basketball game against rival Monterey Trail on Friday would indicate that the Blue Devils won in a rout. DHS reined in the Mustangs, holding them to 17-of-79 shooting, and clamping down on MTHS star Jasmine Redmon, who finished just 2-for-21 from the floor. However, […]

Blue Devil senior makes Strong moves

When teams prepare to play against the fast-paced, 3-point-shot-happy Davis High boys basketball team, they come in expecting that nearly every Blue Devil can shoot from long distance. However, there is one player who garners special attention from opposing teams: DHS senior sharpshooter Brandon Strong. Strong remembers growing up with a basketball in his hands […]
