DHS domination at subsections goes beyond varsity

By November 9, 2010

\n

At last Saturday\’s Sac-Joaquin Subsection Cross Country race at Angels Camp, the order of the day for Davis High was to run just hard enough to qualify for this weekend\’s Section Championships. Mission accomplished.

\n

In addition to the Blue Devil varsity team\’s successful races, the JV boys and girls, sophomore boys, frosh boys, and frosh/soph Girls, plus a handful of individual qualifiers, ran well enough to continue their racing season at the section meet at Willow Hills in Folsom.

\n

The DHS JV girls finished first out of a field of 13 teams, narrowly defeating St. Francis by a score of 35 to 44. The Devils were led by junior Maggie Campos, who placed fifth in perhaps her strongest race of her running career, Kathy Dooley (sixth), Lindsay Stebbins (10th), Val Schmidl (11th) and Erika Hashimoto (14th). Jocelyn Labelle and Halley Rainer rounded out the top seven and Brenna Perlman and Emma Pesis also qualified as individuals.

\n

The Davis sophomore boys squad also won its race behind the trio of Ethan Hall, Sugal Sutter and Paul Mohr, who placed first through third. John Testerman followed closely behind in 11th, Shane Pesis (29th) finished the scoring, and Sean Lee and Nick Juanitas were the sixth and seventh place runners for the team.

\n

The Blue Devil frosh/soph girls took second in their race, led by strong efforts from Shauna Simon (12th), Grace Calhoun (13th) and Lauren James (14th). Hannah Leyva (24th) and Pooja Tripathi (26th) completed the scoring and were joined by sixth and seventh runners Laura Daggett and Siena Cox.

\n

The JV boys placed third in a close race, finishing only one point out of second place, as Andrew Croft was the top DHS finisher in third place. Reinert Toft (10th), William Young (15th), Ryan Greenough (19th) and Nico Higuera (23rd) were the next DHS finishers, Kirby Linvill and Matt Weisker completed the team, and Matt Wall qualified as an individual.

\n

The Devils finished fourth in the freshman boys competition, led by Daniel Rowen\’s eighth-place effort. Matt Mayr (14th) had a strong race, followed by teammates Jasper Laca (24th), Kian Reno (30th) and John Britton (65th). Victor Choi and Kevin Willefert were the sixth- and seventh-place runners for Davis.

\n

In all, 51 of the 92 Blue Devil competitors qualified for sections, and DHS is the only school that will be represented by teams in all seven Division I races.
