Devil frosh/soph squads show pool power

After winning Delta Valley Conference boys and girls titles, coach Matt Crawford’s Davis High frosh/soph swimmers went on to more success at the Sac-Joaquin Section Championships.

In late April, the Blue Devil girls swept the top three places — often the top four — in each race to score 601 points and capture the DVC crown. DHS’ boys also dominated the field, scoring all 573 of the points available.

In addition to winning all of the relay races, the Devils had lots of strong individual performances. Davis’ double winners included Torin Halsted (200 individual medley and 100 butterfly), Lanna Kozlowski (200 IM and 500 freestyle), Colby Stapleton (100 free and 100 backstroke) and Julianna Chan (100 fly and 100 breaststroke).

The locals also got first- or second-place swims from Alyssa Alvarez, Owen Yancher, Matthew Raabe, Mara Dominquez, Alonzo Cortes and Gabriella Maffly.

Using every bit of their extremely deep rosters, the Blue Devil boys and girls saw points contributed by Kendall Doten, Jonathan Desideri, Conner Kinney, Kinsey Van Deynze, Ben Culberson, Jessica Hughes, Ben Hedman, Emme Van Vorhis, Karenna Hunt, Madeleine Gallay, Dominic Fio, Daniel Dyer, Jensen Geist, Steven Johns, Kathy Hu, Madelyn Stoltz, Henry Burke and Saihaj Bajwa.

Seventeen of those DHS swimmers qualified for the section championship meet earlier this  month in Lodi, where the Devil boys scored 136 points to take third place.

That total was aided by several strong local performances, including Brad Nicholson’s two fourth-place finishes. Nicholson went 2:03.04 in the 200 IM and posted a 56.25 in the 100 back.

In the 500 free, Yancher swam a 4:58.63 to take fourth, while his Davis teammate Raabe was eighth (5:03.19). In addition, Culberson touched fourth in the consolation final (5:10.94).

Yancher also dropped four seconds from his prelim time to win the 200 free consolation race in 1:50.22.

The Blue Devil girls made the most of their eight finals appearances to match the boys total of 136 points.

Kozlowski’s 200 free time of 2:00.65 was just .04 behind the second-place finisher and the local swimmer also took seventh in the 500 free. Alvarez went 2:08.55 to finish eighth in that event.

Stapleton took fourth in the 100 free (55.10) and seventh place in the 100 back (1:02.52), while Chan’s 1:08.07 was sixth in the 100 breast. Dominguez finished fourth in 200 IM consolation finals, touching the wall in 2:21.13.

In relay action, Alvarez, Chan, Kozlowski, Maffly and Stapleton all contributed as DHS took eighth in the 400 free and 200 IM races.
