BRIEFS: DHS runs the hills of Mt. SAC

Team-bonding and a trip to Disneyland were on the agenda when the Davis High cross country teams took a three-day trip to Southern California last weekend, but the Blue Devils also mixed in a little racing.

Actually, not much about the Mt. SAC Invitational can be considered little as more than 22,000 athletes competed in the two-day meet, with races going off every seven minutes. At times, up to three separate races were on the course at the same time.

The Devil boys and girls conquered the steep hills on the difficult course and each squad finished in the top 10. The strong showing is even more meaningful because the conditions are similar to what the Davis athletes will see at the upcoming Delta Valley League finals (on Saturday), the Sac Joaquin Sub-Sections (Nov. 6) and the section championship meet (Nov. 13).

Individually at Mt. SAC, Brian DeLa Mora and Braeden Van Deynze used huge personal bests to place ninth and 25th, respectively. DeLa MoraÕs time of 15:22 was the third best any DHS runner has ever run at the meet, while Van DeynzeÕs 15:42 is eighth on that list.

Freshman sensation Sophie Meads placed 24th with a 19:10 in the girls race, and was followed closely by sophomore teammate Laney Teaford in 19:11. Those times are sixth and seventh on the DHS all-time Mt. SAC performance list.

Rounding out the scoring for the girls were Tess Williams, Kathy Dooley, Erika Hashimoto, Grace Calhoun and Laurel Darragh. The boysÕ other scorers were Danny Pugh, Mac Harvey, Hamid Naemeh, Daniel Gonzales and Andrew Croft.

DHS field hockey

A first-half goal by Sarah Riesenberg was all the Blue Devils would need to post a 1-0 victory over Pleasant Valley on Monday.

It was the second straight 1-0 game for DHS, which lost at Chico last week.

Despite falling to the Panthers, the Devils are still in first-place in the Eastern Athletic League at 11-2. Davis has one league contest remaining, its home finale against Lassen, which has been rescheduled for Thursday at 4:30 p.m.

On Monday, the Blue Devils got great play from Ashley Pugh, Emily Brown and Lauren Holtz, and keeper Dominique Lowell made some great saves to maintain the shutout.

RiesenbergÕs goal came after DHS earned a short corner 15 minutes into the game.

Bike Hall induction

Tickets are still available for SaturdayÕs U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame induction ceremony, to be conducted at Freeborn Hall.

This yearÕs inductees are modern competitor Mike McCarthy, sport contributor Dottie Saling, off-road wizard Gary Ellis and pioneer racer George Mallory Hendee.

ÒThe four honorees represent a range of cycling pursuits from off-road to Olympians like McCarthy,Ó Hall of Fame President Dawn Wylong said. ÒThe U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame is proud to honor these individuals. These individuals were selected because of their accomplishments in the sport of cycling, and their induction into the Hall of Fame will serve as a perpetual reminder of their dedication, support and sacrifice.Ó

In addition to the induction ceremony, a hosted reception and dinner are part of the gala. Tickets are $125 and tables of eight can be reserved for $800.

Visit http://usbhof.com for additional information. The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame is at Third and B streets in downtown Davis. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays.
