The Davis High boys and girls track and field teams showed they belonged in the Sacramento Meet of Champions on Saturday as a strong Blue Devil performance was paced by senior Paul Mohr’s school-record time in the 800 meters.

With so many high-level entries, the SMOC is really two meets, with normal varsity-level boys and girls events during the day, before elite “men” and “women” compete at night.

Mohr’s program benchmark of 1:54.87 came in the nighttime 800 race and was good for third place, with sophomore teammate Blake Croft taking eighth (2:02.62). Also in the men’s portion of the meet, DHS’ Nick Denton pulled off a strong double in throws, finishing second by tossing the shot put  57-09.50, then placing fourth in discus (157-02).

Jack Scranton took 20th in the men’s 1,600 in 4:36.53.

Also competing under the lights, Laney Teaford took third place for the Devils in the 800 when she crossed in 2:15.16, then joined Rose Stephens, Claire Wiebe and Han-ah Sumner to take fifth in the 4×400 relay. Their time of 3:57.13 was especially impressive considering it was done without Ellie Eaton, who usually anchors the relay squad.

Stephens also finished sixth in the women’s 300 hurdles (45.27) and ran a 16.08 to earn 12th in the daytime 100 hurdles race.

Sophie Meads was Davis’ other nighttime competitor, taking 10th in the 1,600 at 5:08.96.

A victory in the boys 4×400 highlighted the Blue Devils’ daytime outing as Maito Okamoto, Croft, Ben Salcedo and Alex McIntyre sprinted home in 3:22.34. McIntyre’s fast running continued in the 100 meters, as he posted an 11.25 to take 11th.

On the girls side, DHS’ Courtney Meyer captured second place in the pole vault (10-06), while Sumner was fifth in the 800 (2:17.35) ahead of teammate Jeanne-Marie McPherson (21st).

The Devils also got strong finishes from Fiona O’Keeffe (seventh) and Elisa McIsaac (13th) in the 1,600; Giulia McIsaac (sixth), Maggie McManis (14th) and Laura Daggett (12th) in the 3,200; and Amelia Otto-Cutting (seventh) and Caitlin Mazzoleni (eighth) in the high jump.
