Davis High boys and girls cross country teams wrapped up Delta Valley Conference competition on Saturday by running to a pair of convincing team titles.

The Blue Devil girls were led by a record-setting performance from sophomore Fiona O’Keeffe, whose time of 17 minutes, 36 seconds was the fastest time ever on the 5,000-meter course at Folsom’s Willow Hill, home of the Sac-Joaquin Section Championships since 2004.

On her heels, posting the eighth-fastest run of all-time at that course, was DHS freshman Sofia┬áCastiglioni taking second place in 18:23.┬áThe Devils scored 18 points, well ahead of second-place Franklin’s 45 points. Other Davis scorers were Giulia McIsaac (fourth), Sophie Meads (fifth), Jeanne-Marie McPherson (sixth), Claire Dicker (seventh) and Elisa McIsaac (10th).

Meanwhile, the Blue Devil boys shut out the rest of the league, placing seven runners in the top eight, including sweeping the first five places to score a perfect 15 points. Monterey Trail was second with 70 points. Brian Song paced DHS with his first-place finish, followed by Jasper Laca, Ben Roberts, Charlie Harris and Gavin Monges in the top five. Daniel Rowen was seventh and Blake Croft was eighth to round out the Devil scorers.

Davis competes next on Saturday in the sub-section meet at Angels Camp before heading back to Willow Hills for the SJS finals.
