DHS boys looking to replicate a big cross country performance

* Editor’s note: This is the sixth in a nine-part series previewing the Davis High fall sports. Coming off of a ninth-place finish last year at the state championships, it’s hard to imagine that the Davis High boys’ cross country team could be even better this fall. After all, that’s a top-10 finish in the highly populated […]

Life without MacDonald starts Friday for DHS

Brendan MacDonald was the heart and soul of the Davis High football team’s defense last season; barking out calls and making plays from sideline to sideline. But now, MacDonald is gone, leaving a completely new group of Blue Devils to pick up where he left off. Still, DHS’ 2014 defense could be even better than last year’s because […]

Clark recalls his hole-in-one — the first at Davis Golf Course

She’s one ol’ gal who certainly has aged well. Davis Golf Course — known to generations as Muni — is 50 years old. And while the 18-hole layout has plenty of stories to tell, it was longtime golfer Gary Clark who provided his account of the course’s first hole-in-one. Clark, for 37 years a mathematics instructor at Woodland […]

QB Lacy says UCD has ‘a lot to learn. We’re going to bounce back.’

London Lacy has paid his dues in the UC Davis football program. The fifth-year senior from Kingsburg didn’t throw a pass last season. He had appeared in just eight games before getting his first collegiate start Saturday. Certainly a baptism by fire, Lacy and Company had trouble moving the ball against No. 11 Stanford, eventually losing 45-0. Despite […]

Ah. Home, sweet home … Playing their first slate of games at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium this season, the Davis Junior Blue Devils took three of the four games started Saturday.

Baseball roundup: Cats win late to pull even with Aces

WEST SACRAMENTO — Alden Carrithers’ bases-loaded groundout in the bottom of the eighth inning brought home Daric Barton with the winning run as the Sacramento River Cats edged Reno, 5-4, Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at Raley Field.

Sports briefs: Aggie harriers secure season-opening sweep

Junior Christine Hoffman captured the women’s 4-kilometer race in 14 minutes, 17 seconds while classmate Brandon Pugh took third in the men’s 6K on Saturday as each led their respective UC Davis cross country teams to wins at the season-opening Aggie Open.

New coach, new tougher league for DHS football

Despite having to play in the rugged Delta Valley Conference, the Davis High football team has managed to go 5-5 in each of the past two seasons. But this year, the Blue Devils have a new head coach — John Wiley — and are in a new, even more grueling environment: the eight-team Delta League. […]

Coach likes what she sees from Devil field hockey squad

* Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a nine-part series previewing the Davis High fall sports. It may be surprising to hear coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins’ take on the 2014 edition of the Davis High field hockey team, a squad that lost 13 players to graduation. With players like senior Rachel Foley and junior Danielle Mentink leading […]

UCD notebook: Coaches positive about FCS schools ‘playing up’

Saturday’s 45-0 loss at The Farm represented the 10th consecutive time UC Davis has played a Football Bowl Subdivision school at least once in its season. The Aggies have a 2-9 record — going back to the 20-17 upset of Stanford in 2005. UCD also nipped San Jose State, 14-13, in 2010. Along the way, the locals have […]
