DHS boys shuffle the deck to beat Cards

Wednesday was just another day for the Davis High boy’s tennis team: warm up, play a match, win that match, then head home. The Blue Devils trounced visiting Laguna Creek, 8-1, at the DHS Tennis Complex. The Devils would have won 9-0, but No. 1 singles player Tristan Dutta went down with cramps and had […]

UCD softball shut out by Santa Barbara

A three-hit gem from freshman pitcher Dana Cruse was wasted as the UC Davis softball team (15-27, 4-8) failed to generate any offense and dropped a 1-0 game to UC Santa Barbara (28-17, 8-4), which won the series. “I am so proud of Dana Cruse throwing a (three-hitter) off a team that has faced some great […]

DHS’ Golston goes full-bore on the diamond

It would be easy to get lost among Davis High baseball stars like Matt Trask, Ryan Kreidler and Brett Bloomfield. But senior Trey Golston has been a staple in the Blue Devil lineup and at third base for the past two seasons, and has grown into an even bigger role this year. “My dad got […]

Downtown post office set to reopen

The downtown Davis post office, 424 Third St., is scheduled to reopen Monday after being closed for more than two months for remodeling following a fire.

Rare mistakes cost DHS in baseball loss

One half-inning is all it took for Vintage to break a deadlocked game wide open.

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.

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.

DHS offense sputters against Eagles

Baseball isn’t just about getting hits — those hits have to be timely.

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.
