DHS cruises at Sub-sections

By November 6, 2010

\n

This wasn\’t the day to go all out. That day comes next weekend at the Sac-Joaquin Section cross country championships.

\n

But on Saturday at Sub-sections on the Frogtown Course at Angels Camp, the Davis High boys and girls teams did pretty good on cruise control.

\n

The defending section champion boys squad finished first with 45 points, ahead of Oak Ridge (75) and Jesuit (112), the two teams that are expected to give the Blue Devils their biggest challenge next week at sections.

\n

DHS\’ Trevor Halsted showed no ill effects from an early-season injury and won the race in 16:14, crossing just ahead of teammate Brian De La Mora whose time of 16:17 was good enough for third place. Mac Harvey (16:35) was ninth and Braeden Van Deynze (16:45) finished 12th.

\n

“The boys looked very relaxed and still put four runners in the top 12,” Devil coach Bill Gregg said. “Trevor won the race without putting too much effort in, and he looks like he is totally back.”

\n

Hamid Naemeh in 27th, Danny Pugh at 38th and Daniel Gonzalez in 48th were the other DHS boys who ran well.

\n

On the girls side, Davis was sixth but, like the boys team, the Blue Devil girls weren\’t looking to max out on effort before sections.

\n

“With the girls, it was the same thing. We were putting it on cruise control wanting to be ready for next week,” Gregg said. “We took sixth, but it was a comfortable sixth.”

\n

According to Gregg, DHS will be competing with

\n

Granite Bay, Oak Ridge and St. Francis for the top two spots at sections which come with a berth in the state meet. The Grizzlies, who moved up from Division II

\n

before the season, are ranked in California and the U.S. and are the team to beat, according to Gregg. They finished first on Saturday.

\n

Individually, Sophie Meads led the way for DHS taking 12th with a time if 19:38. Tess Williams (26th), Kate Latch (41), Kelly Goss (56), Laney Teaford (58) and Laurel Darragh (88) rounded out the Devil squad.
