BRIEFS: DHS runs the hills of Mt. SAC

By
October 27, 2010 |

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.

Hoops tryouts

Davis Hoops Wildcats AAU basketball tryouts begin in November for boys in grades four through six and girls in grades five and six. Dates, times and locations of tryouts are posted at http://www.davishoops.com.

There is no charge for tryouts, but players must preregister online and bring a signed waiver form.

Last season, more than 200 Wildcat players participated in competitive tournaments in the Sacramento region. Teams practice twice a week in Davis and Dixon. Tryouts for middle and high school boys and girls teams take place after the school seasons are completed.

For more information, visit the website or call Carol at (530) 574-7115.

UCD softball

While playing a few more games to wrap up their fall schedule, the Aggies also are giving back to the community. The UCD squad is set to host a canned food drive and free youth softball clinic that will take place the first two weekends of November.

On Saturday, Nov. 6, at 10 a.m. the Aggies will host Sacramento City College and Sierra College at La Rue Field in their final fall games. The day also will feature a canned food drive to benefit the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee.

The following Saturday, Nov. 13, UCD teams up with the Davis Youth Softball Association to host a free youth softball clinic at Community Park. The camp will run from 1 to 3 p.m., with check-in beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Admission is free, but the clinic will be limited to the first 100 individuals in eighth grade and under. To reserve a spot, contact Aggie assistant coach Alicia Hollowell at akhollowell@ucdavis.edu.

Volleyball tryouts

Five Starz Volleyball will hold tryouts for the 2011 season beginning Nov. 7 and running through Nov. 14.

Former Division I player and coach Liz Towne-Gilbert is the director of the Davis-based club, which plans on fielding teams from ages 12 and under to ages 18 and under.

There is a $25 fee for each tryout participant, which includes a free T-shirt. For more information, visit http://www.fivestarzvolleyball.com or contact Towne-Gilbert at (530) 304-3228.
