Davis sweeps DVC track and field meet

The Davis High boys and girls track and field team finished its league season without a blemish, capping it off by winning all four divisions at the Delta Valley Conference Championship meet Friday at Monterey Trail High.

The dominance was nothing new for the Blue Devils, who swept all four divisions at every DVC get-together this year.

On Friday, the DHS varsity girls outdistanced second-place MTHS, 194.5 to 120.5, while the Devil boys scored 191 points, more than double that of runner-up Elk Grove (81).

Davis’ success was keyed by total supremacy in the long-distance events as a Blue Devil finished first in every race longer than 800 meters.

DHS runners took the first seven spots in the 1,600, and were the first five finishers in the 3,200. Local sophomore Fiona O’Keeffe won both of those races, crossing in 5:02.64 in the 1,600 and 10:30.16 in the 3,200. Freshman Sofia Castiglioni was on O’Keeffe’s heels each time, with second-place times of 5:13.98 and 11:06.10.

The Blue Devil boys had similar stranglehold on the two distance events, going 1-2-3 in each race. Ani Ramakrishnan had a very nice outing for Davis, coming in first in the 3,200 with a blistering time of 9:42.15 (a season-best by almost half a minute), and second in the 1,600 in 4:26.63. Ben Roberts was the fastest miler in the conference, outrunning the pack with a time of 4:26.29.

In the shorter events, Devil Alex McIntyre showed off his school-record speed, winning the 200 in 22.47 seconds and finishing second in the 400 (49.64).

Blake Croft and Willie Hall took first and second, respectively, for DHS in the 800, as the junior Croft beat out sophomore Hall by less than two seconds, 1:56.84 to 1:58.26. On the girls’ side, local runners made up the top four, with senior Sophie Meads coming in first at 2:19.12.

The Blue Devils also had a good night when it came to getting altitude, as they took first place in the both high jumps, and both pole vaults.

Kyle Clancy blew away the competition in the high jump, clearing 6 feet, 7 inches to beat the field by 7 inches. Nate Harper took the pole vault crown by an even larger margin, going 15-06 to dwarf the second place finisher’s 12-07.

If those wins were convincing, the DHS girls’ victories were dominating. Mimi Miyamoto and Caitlin Mazzoleni both cleared 5-02 in the high jump, securing first-place tie, while the pole vault was a Devil party as the top five was all Davis. Lily Wolfe and Danielle Gantar tied for first, as both girls made it over 10 feet.

Next up for the Blue Devils is the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I Championships, beginning Wednesday at Elk Grove High. The two-day event finishes Friday.
