DHS boys show they belong with top teams at tourney

Facing some of the elite prep water polo teams not only in the state but in the country, the Davis High boys finished 2-2 to take 12th place at the North/South Challenge on Friday and Saturday in Atherton.

The resilient Blue Devils (19-6) bounced back after a pair of losses on Friday — one at the hands of Harvard Westlake, a team DHS coach Tracy Stapleton called the second best in the United States — and never trailed in winning two games on Saturday.

Even in that 15-5 loss to HWHS, the Devils played a strong first quarter, trailing just 4-3 after one period.

Davis also fell to Loyola, 9-3, but turned things around at halftime of that contest when it was behind 8-0. After that, the locals outscored Loyola 3-1 in the second half, then rode that momentum to a pair of Saturday victories.

The first of those, a 9-8 win over Villa Park, saw the Blue Devils get scoring from six different players. Garrett Fisk then paced DHS with five goals in a 12-8 victory over Acalanes.

“We finished up the tournament well,” Stapleton said. “These teams are all so good, there are really no weak links.”

Fisk tallied in each game to finish with eight goals. Other Davis scoring came from Cameron Wright (six goals), Brad Nicholson (four), Conrad McCarthy (four), Graham Fullerton (three), Tyler Ujifusa (three) and Zac Anderson.

The Blue Devils wrap up the regular season this week with a Tuesday game at Jesuit and a home match against Rio Americano on Halloween. The winner of Tuesday’s rivalry contest will clinch the Delta Valley Conference title and likely earn the top seed in the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.
