A look around the Davis sports landscape

There’s a lot going on, so let’s get to it …

Davis Legacy Soccer Club — Call it the Davis Soccer Festival, if you will.

The folks at DLSC will be hosting the U.S. Club Soccer National XII Western Regionals for both boys and girls divisions.

The guys — featuring more than 125 teams (U11 to U18/19) — will play from June 15-18 and tournament director Mark Torguson says the future of this tournament could have impact equal to that of the old Davis Volleyball Festival.

“We have plenty of terrific fields, a lot of things for the kids and their families to do in Davis,” the veteran coach and former professional goalkeeper told me recently. “We’d like the U.S. Club Soccer tournament to stay here a long time.”

The week after the boys, the girls will be here June 22-25. There could be more than 125 teams with that competitive group.

The hope is that area merchants, hotels, UC Davis and local entertainment will warm to the tournament and make the travelers from 14 western states and three Canadian provinces feel at home.

Torguson will get almost no rest this summer.

In addition to coaching his Legacy teams in the tourney (while running the whole darn thing), Torguson has his annual Legacy Showcase Weekends coming up in July.

Often, more than 60 colleges and universities send soccer coaches to see the next-generation pitch talent at the DLSC gatherings.

July 12-14 will feature girls club teams from around California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. July 19-21 will be the boys squads getting a long look from some of the top soccer schools in the land.

“We have coaches from across the country attend,” Torguson said, adding the two weekends mean another 250 club squads will be looking for something fun to do between games, somewhere to stay and — of course — places to eat.

Torguson has been talking with city officials, the Visitors Bureau and others to see how these tournaments can gain traction in the community.

Torguson tells me he’ll be reaching out to AYSO to work on ways the local soccer organization can get involved, get its word out and, hopefully, use the tourneys as fundraisers.

DLSC hopes these in-quick-succession events can put another feather in the Davis soccer cap.

If all goes well, maybe Torguson will be the first outside-the-ranks Chamber member of the year.

Sail Away This Weekend — If you want to introduce yourself to what sounds like the ultimate summer sport, the Lake Washington Sailing Club is conducting an Open House on Saturday at its Port of West Sacramento facilities.

Sailors and landlubbers, youngsters and geezers like me are invited to head out on the not-so-high seas of Lake Washington to get a feel for what breaking free feels like.

From 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Sailing Club members will take guests on tours of the club, have food and refreshments for sale and give everyone a chance to experience a brisk sail.

Club officials ask that visitors dress warmly. Individual life jackets are suggested but, if attendees don’t have their own, approved jackets will be supplied.

For additional information about the open house and the Lake Washington Sailing Club, visit www.lwsailing.org or contact Dan Clark 916-204-6361 or Dave Dandey 530-304-7230.

There’s always room for basketball — There’s a high school girls basketball player from Davis who few of us have followed or heard of …

Yet, senior sharpshooter Ella Haberman of Sacramento Waldorf School spent three solid campaigns at the Fair Oaks school — including this past winter in which she scored a third of her team’s points with a 14.2 ppg average while the Waves went 12-15 in the rugged Central Valley League.

Playing for coach Brian Wolfe (a Davis resident who also coached the Davis Waldorf eighth-grade team to new heights), Haberman took 389 shots on the year.

Haberman is a three-time varsity CVL all-conference selection.

Headed for Long Island — Field hockey standout Emily Barber will be playing midfield and forward in college when the Blue Devil attends Hofstra University next fall.

Heavily recruited, senior Barber decided on coach Kathy De Angelis’ Lionesses.

“The class of 2017 — (with players) like Emily — brings depth that will make an impact,” DeAngelis says.

Ten new Hofstra recruits come from four U.S. states and three foreign countries.

Barber, as DHS fans know, owns the school scoring record (41 goals) and is a two-time Eastern Athletic League first-team pick.
