BRIEFS: Devils dominate another golf event

By
October 8, 2010 |

ELK GROVE Ñ After dominating the field at the first Delta Valley Conference girls golf tournament, held last week at Wildhorse, Davis High didnÕt have much left to prove.

And when the Blue Devils took care of business again Thursday despite the sanded and aerated greens at the par-74 Mather Golf Club, their spot in the DVC pecking order was confirmed.

DHS shot a 482 as a team at the conferenceÕs second event of the season to finish 50 strokes in front of second-place Laguna Creek.

ÒAll the girls represented Davis well considering the tough greens,Ó Devil head coach Rhonda Mohr said. ÒThe course was in nice shape, but the greens were sanded and had been aerated. My players said that they had to play the punch marks on the green in order to make putts.Ó

Freshman Jihye Lee was a revelation for DHS as her short game was brilliant, even with the questionable greens. Lee led the Blue Devils and took second place overall with a 92.

ÒSome struggled with the greens but Jihye Lee was able to read them well,Ó Mohr said. ÒShe said her chipping was on so she was able to get close to the hole for easier putts.

ÒI am really excited about JihyeÕs progress. She parred four holes in a row so the potential for low scores in the future is possible.Ó

Davis senior Haley Riesenberg was tied for third at 92, while classmate Karishma Jain shot a 96 to take fifth. Kaity HoneychurchÕs 97, Lynzee KornellyÕs 101 and Kayla CampanelliÕs 105 rounded out the scoring for the Devils, who will be back on the course next Thursday for DVC Tournament No. 3 at Bartley Cavanaugh Golf Course in Sacramento.

DHS girls tennis

The Blue Devils are so deep that there are several strong players on their roster who arenÕt even playing in the top nine.

Facing an overmatched Elk Grove squad on Thursday at the Community Park Tennis Complex, DHS was able to rest its top singles players and give those reserves a chance to show their stuff.

The result was an 8-1 victory that proved that the Devils will be a force, at least in the Delta Valley Conference, for the foreseeable future.

DavisÕ Caron Miller moved up from doubles to play No. 4 singles, and all she did was defeat Jena Scarborough, 6-0, 6-0. Two other players who normally play doubles also got easy singles victories for the Blue Devils as Ginny Hartz won 6-2, 6-0 at No. 5 and Hanna Jolkovsky stopped Elk GroveÕs No. 6 player, 6-1, 6-2.

Playing at No. 1 for DHS, Naomi Wainwright won 6-1, 6-2 and the other singles wins both came from the Cajandig family as Ceci won at No. 2 and sister Briki won at No. 3.

Devils Megan Williams and Grace Blacker teamed for a 6-2, 6-1 victory at No. 2 doubles and the No. 3 squad Ñ Cat Archer and Eliana Jolkovsky ÑÊmade the most of their first action in while, winning 6-1, 6-3.

Even in DHSÕ only loss, Julia Dinger and Layla Hansen played well at No. 1 doubles, falling 11-9 in a third-set tiebreaker.

UCD field hockey

The Aggies went up against a tough Big Ten opponent Ñ Northwestern Ñ on Thursday, and dropped a 5-0 contest at Leonard B. Thomas Sports Complex in Evanston, Ill.

Chelsea Armstrong dominated the action for the Wildcats (9-4), posting four goals and one assist in the game to send UCDÕs to 3-6 overall.

Northwestern scored early and often, putting in three goals in the first 16 minutes of play. Armstrong got things started with her 14th goal of the season in gameÕs opening minute.

Trailing 4-0 at the break, the Aggies made some adjustments and prevented Northwestern from getting back on the scoreboard in the first 25 minutes of the second half. UCD Goalie Lauren Sawvelle had all five of her saves in that time.

Cloey LemMon fired off a shot in the closing minutes of the game for the Aggies, but the Wildcats held on for the shutout.

Conley Craven also saw time in goal for UCD in the second half and recorded two saves.

ÒItÕs good for the Aggies to face this type of competition,Ó said UCD head coach Vianney Campos. ÒIt really shows them where we want to be and the type of teams we need to beat to get there.Ó

The Aggies will look to bounce back later this weekend, staying in Evanston to play a neutral-site game vs. Indiana on Saturday at 10 a.m.

Play4thecure

The DHS field hockey team is trying to raise money and awareness to the cause of breast cancer at its home game against Bella Vista on Monday at Susan Beaton Field next to Halden Field on the Davis High campus.

The Blue Devils will wear pink jerseys and charge $3 admission to watch both the varsity and JV contests. The first 15 fans at each game will receive free pink DHS field hockey shirts, and the shirts also will be available for purchase along with pink-themed food and drink items.

All the money raised will go to the Komen Foundation.

That day, the JV game will start at 3:30 p.m., with the varsity matchup following at 4:30 p.m.

Pee Wee basketball

The city of Davis is taking registration now for its Pee Wee Basketball Program.

Two sessions are offered, one from Oct. 16 through Nov. 6 and the other from Nov. 13 through Dec. 11. The cost of the program is $53 per child and includes a T-shirt.
