BRIEFS: Big win for Blue Devil girls

September 30, 2010 | Leave Comment

Davis High girls volleyball coach Leigh Whitmire is always happy to get a win. WednesdayÕs three-set victory over Yuba City was a little bit sweeter.

ÒIt just feels really good to be successful after you havenÕt won in a while,Ó Whitmire said after the Blue Devils swept the Honkers, 25-19, 25-22, 25-17. ÒYou never like to get used to losing.Ó

And it wasnÕt as if DHS got a victory by scheduling an overmatched opponent, Whitmire said Yuba City was Òa really scrappy team, they kept getting the balls back to us so it was a really good match.Ó

To beat the Honkers, the Devils went back to one of their strengths, serving well throughout the match. While Davis is still working on its communication, the Blue Devils showed a lot of character.

ÒI was really happy with the way we played as a team and didnÕt give up in a competitive match,Ó Whitmire said.

The coach praised the play of Nicole Desideri, as well as her three seniors Ñ Angie Rinaldi, Cassie Varland and Rachel Devries.

The Blue Devils tuned up for a tougher match today against St. MaryÕs by taking down league opponent Monterey Trail, 15-1, on Wednesday at Arroyo Pool.

DHS improved to 13-1 with the victory.

New to the Devils this season, Monica Lopez-Isla had a chance to shine against the Mustangs and took advantage with a hat trick. Using both hands to get balls past the Monterey Trail goalie, Lopez-Isla dominated the third quarter, scoring all three of her goals in that period.

ÒMonicaÕs performance was really nice to see,Ó DHS coach Doug Wright said. ÒShe even scored one with her off-hand.Ó

Elsie Fullerton also scored three times for Davis, while Rachel Brooks added two goals. Six other Blue Devils scored one each, including Hannah Levien, who added four steals.

With an obvious difference in the talent level between the two teams, DHS was able to work on certain strategies that will be important today against St. MaryÕs and next week in a matchup against St. Francis.

ÒWe started talking about moving the ball more cleanly in our halfcourt offense,Ó Wright said. ÒBecause of our speed, we get a lot of our goals in transition and it is important to be able to score in the halfcourt as well.Ó

St. MaryÕs will be at Arroyo to face the DHS today at 5 p.m.

Using a balanced offensive attack, the Blue Devils beat visiting Monterey Trail, 15-1, on Wednesday at Arroyo Pool.

Every player on the DHS team scored at least once against the Mustangs, with Scott Perry, Jack Ramirez and Noah Freidman leading the way with two goals each.

David Lester, Brandon Rueda, Connor Stapleton, Tre Moynihan, Wade Allen, Paul Dailey, Jack Blattner, Nick Swaminathan and Mark Ward each added one goal for the Devils, who improved to 10-3 on the season.

Davis will face a tougher challenge today against St. MaryÕs. The matchup at Arroyo Pool begins at 4:30 p.m.

UCD cross country

Aggie junior Jonathan Peterson was named the Big West MenÕs Cross Country Athlete of the Week and junior Krista Drechsler earned the conferenceÕs womenÕs honor after stellar efforts at the Stanford Invitational last weekend.

Peterson, from Clovis, led the UCD menÕs with a 14th-place finish, clocking in at 24 minutes even in the 8K race. Despite having to stop mid-race to put his shoe back on, PetersonÕs top-15 finish helped lead the Aggie men to seventh place.

Drechsler was UCDÕs top finisher and the only runner from a Big West institution to finish in the top 10 as she came in sixth with a time of 20:49. This marks the second straight race in which Drechsler was the AggiesÕ top competitor as she won the Hornet Jamboree on Sept. 11.

UCD returns to action Oct. 16 as it travels to the Bronco Invitational hosted by Santa Clara.

Devil Scramble

The first Devil Scramble, a golf tournament to benefit the DHS boys and girls golf teams, will be Monday, Oct. 18, at El Macero Country Club.
