BRIEFS: DHS water polo girls dominate

By
September 23, 2010 |

ELK GROVE Ñ Before the top-seeded Davis High girls water polo team begins play in the Woodcreek Tournament this weekend, there was the little matter of a Wednesday game against Franklin in Elk Grove.

In taking apart the Wildcats, 17-1, the Blue Devils saw 11 different players score ÑÊincluding both of its goalies, Taylor Leuschen and Haley Cameron, who got a chance to play in the field.

DHSÕ Anna Nicholson matched senior Elsie Fullerton as each scored three goals, while Kaitlyn Dawson and Darcy Soga each found the cage twice. Devils with one goal were Leuschen, Cameron, Rachel Brooks, Monica Lopez-Isla, Hannah Levien, Keelia Houston and Rachel Johnson.

While DavisÕ offense used a balanced attack to score big numbers, its defense was just as strong. Twenty-two steals by the Blue Devil field players made it so Leuschen and Cameron saw more action on offense than they ever did in front of the DHS cage.

Nicholson, Soga and Houston had four steals each for the Devils, who will begin play in the Woodcreek Tournament with an 8:20 a.m. game against Oak Ridge at American River College. If the top seeds all win, DHS will have matchups against St. MaryÕs and Acalanes and a rematch with rival St. Francis (Sacramento) in the finals. The two teams played earlier this season with the Blue Devils rolling to a 17-3 victory.

Ò(St. Francis) will get better as the season goes on so we also have to continue to improve,Ó cautions Davis head coach Doug Wright.

During a 12-0 victory over Franklin on Wednesday, the Blue Devils were able to spend most of the contest working on preparing for what will be a much tougher test this weekend.

Davis will face some of the best teams in the state on Friday and Sunday in San Diego at the AmericaÕs Finest City tournament.

ÒThe AFC includes 32 teams, most from San Diego, Orange and L.A. counties,Ó DHS head coach Tracy Stapleton said. ÒWe expect some excellent competition and it should provide us an excellent opportunity to become better.Ó

Against Franklin, Connor Stapleton led the way as he poured in four goals, Wade Allen scored three and Noah Friedman and Paul Dailey each found the net twice. Mark Ward added a goal for the Devils, who improved their record to 6-1.

DHS will open the AFC against Grossmont High on Friday, play another game later that day and then three more on Sunday.

Tennis Festival

Registration is open through Friday for the third annual Harvey English Tennis Festival, a one-day event that will be played on Oct. 2.

The festival is named after local tennis legend and UCD professor Harvey English, who died this year at the age of 99, and the 2010 event will honor longtime Davis High girls tennis coach Paul Ochs, who recently retired after 34 seasons.

Players ages 18 and older are eligible to register and the cost is $20.

The festival will begin at 8 a.m. at the Marya Welch Tennis Center on the UCD campus and will last until 4 p.m.

All adult menÕs, womenÕs and mixed doubles teams are welcome, and organizers will arrange teams for players without a partner. Players will be divided up by skill level and placed into groups of four for a round-robin with each match being a 10-game pro set.

Players can register online at http://harleyenglishtennis.com or by contacting the Retiree Center at retireecenter@ucdavis.edu or (530) 752-5182.

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.

Players are asked to pre-register by Sept. 30.

Golfers can choose either a scramble or ÒshambleÓ format. The cost for this event is $150, which includes entry into 18 holes of golf, riding cart, lunch, dinner and various awards. Nongolfers are invited for dinner at the cost of $30.
