Baseball, golf and track JV/frosh teams are busy

From page B2 | March 20, 2013 |

The Davis High freshman baseballers (2-3 in nonleague competition) had a busy three-game schedule in their second week of play.

On March 12, the Blue Devils traveled to Lincoln High (Stockton) where they eked out a 5-4 win.

The Trojans plated their lead-off runner in the first inning and added two more tallies in the third off of DHS starting pitcher James Richardson to take an early three-run advantage. But the Devils responded with two rallies that generated five runs and a lead that would hold through the final frame.

In the fourth, Davis third baseman Ray Young and center fielder Alex Timmons (who went 2-for-3 with a double) drew walks. Peter Frame’s drive to left brought Young home and Timmons scored on a Lincoln error.

One inning later, a walk to Noah Riffle (who later scored on a passed ball), Gavin Cosgrave’s sharp opposite-field grounder and Glen Welch’s too-hard-to-handle RBI bouncer gave the Blue Devils needed base runners. Pierce Tujo’s one-out double to deep left drove in Welch for the inning’s third run.

Relievers Frame, Daniel Henrickson and Josh Milenbach combined to strike out five Trojans and give up only one additional run.

The next day, the freshmen traveled to Christian Brothers but came up short, 6-3.

Tujo and Cosgrave offered up solid hits in the fourth inning, but DHS couldn’t convert.

However, local Jacob Guerrero walked in the fifth, advanced on a pair of left-side grounders from Ben Harvey and Alex Halford, and scored on a wild pitch.

The Blue Devils added a run in the sixth frame on Cosgrave’s huge double to right, plating Tujo, and in the seventh, Henrickson had a hit and scored on Timmons’ grounder to short.

Davis starting pitcher Riffle and reliever Dan Shuman had their first pitching outings of the season, combining to give up six earned runs on eight hits, adding six strikeouts and five walks.

The hurlers got excellent back-up from a strong Devil defense, including a diving catch by Halford in the first inning that prevented two Trojan runs. Later, a rocket thrown by catcher Mason Shorts denied a second-inning steal.

Last Friday, the locals met a near-flawless Rocklin team on its home turf, losing a tough one, 5-2.

Timmons and Frame — who each had two hits — scored DHS’ only runs in the second inning. Henrickson, Riffle and Welch added a hit apiece.

On the mound, starter Tujo allowed four runs on six hits while striking out seven in 4 1/3 innings. Reliever Milenbach held Rocklin to only one earned run.

The Davis middle infield got fans to their feet with a pair of late-game double plays, thanks to the trio of Henrickson-Richardson-Young.

After two weeks of play, Timmons and Frame, both hitting .498, Welch (.429) and Cosgrave (.417) lead the Blue Devil offense.

The locals’ next two games are at home — Wednesday against Jesuit at Playfields Park and Thursday at the DHS JV field, both at 4 p.m.

DHS JV boys golf

The Blue Devil junior varsity golfers took fifth place out of 10 particupating schools in last week’s Nevada Union JV Tournament.

The Davis medalist was Aaron Levin-Fay, who carded a 46, while Utkarsh Uppal (47) and Garret Scott-Henley (49) also had hot hands for the Devils.

Quinn Foster’s 50, Dylan Lee’s 51 and a 59 from Clayton Webster rounded out DHS’ sharp showing.

DHS frosh/soph track

The freshman and sophomore Blue Devils had many outstanding results at Saturday’s Folsom Depth Charge invitational.

Three DHS girls led the way with two individual victories each. Freshman Joseena John had a successful day, winning both the 200 meters (27.80) and the 400 (1:05.66). She also was second behind teammate Alaina King in the 100 (13:20-13:32). King added another first place in the long jump with a 14-11.25 effort .

Devil hurdler Isolde Pierce crossed the line first in both the 100 (18.21) and 300 hurdles (50.94).

Other Davis athletes with victories included Yrenly Yuan in the triple jump (31-03) and Katherine Dimond in the 800 (2:33.90). Completing a 1-2-3 sweep behind Dimond in the 800 were Blue Devil teammates Elise Chu (2:34.73) and Elisa McIsaac (2:34.92).

Charlie Harris and Claire Dicker each added top-three finishes to the DHS slate as Harris was second in the boys’ 3,200 (10:22.65), while Dicker took third in the girls race (12:56.33).

In the field events, Preston Talon’s jump of 5-06 earned him second place in the high jump, Henry Zhang was second in the boys triple jump (35-11), Adria Lammers took home the bronze in the girls triple jump (30-07) and Danny Medina’s leap of 17-07 in the boys long jump was good for third.

Rounding out the Devils’ top-three finishes was Heather Huston’s second place in the 400 (1:05.81).
