With Monterey Trail and Grant joining host Davis High at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium for a boys and girls Delta Valley Conference track and field meet, the races were close and the final scores reflected just that.

The Blue Devil boys picked up wins over the Mustangs (79-52) and the Pacers (97-34), while the DHS girls also beat Grant (119-14) but fell to MTHS, 70-66.

Alex McIntyre kept up his hot streak for the Devils as he captured both the 100- and 200-meter races, while individual track wins came from Blake Croft (400), Jack Scranton (800), Paul Mohr (1,600) and Jaspar Laca (3,200).

Kyle Clancy added big points for Davis when he crossed the finish line first in the 110 hurdles and won the high jump.

In other field events, Nick Denton paced the local boys with a win in the shot put (55-0.25) and a second-place discus finish, while Spencer LaHaye earned a pole vault victory.

On the girls side, the Blue Devils were untouchable in the distance events as Sophie Meads led a top-three sweep in the 800, then was the first of five DHS runners to finish before anyone else in the 1,600. Giulia McIsaac crossed first in the 3,200, another event that saw Devils in the first five places.

Other Davis track victories came from Ellie Eaton (200), Han-ah Sumner (400) and the 4×400 relay team, while Lilly Wolfe posted a pole vault win.

The Blue Devils will stay in town this weekend to compete in the Woody Wilson Invitational on Friday and Saturday at UC Davis.
