Big Mama and Little Sister were no match for the Davis High cross country teams on Saturday as the Blue Devils opened their season with a strong showing at the Lagoon Valley Classic.

Hosted by Vacaville High, the meet was contested on the historic course at Lagoon Valley Park, just east of Vacaville, which features a pair of large hills dubbed Big Mama and Little Sister. The former is the steepest and longest hill the DHS harriers will have to overcome this year.

The Devils conquered the hills to the tune of a second-place finish (Bella Vista scored 46 points to Davis’ 58), while the local boys took third.

Racing without defending Sac-Joaquin Section champion Fiona O’Keeffe, the Blue Devil girls were paced by Maggie McManis, who placed third overall. Also scoring points for DHS were Sophie Meads (11th), Giulia McIsaac (15th), Jeanne-Marie McPherson (22nd) and Claire Dicker (26th). In addition, Danielle Gantar (35th) and Elisa McIsaac (59th) ran well.

For the Devil boys, who scored 73 points to come in behind Sheldon (56) and Bella Vista (68), Jasper Laca was the top finisher as he took seventh. Behind him were Davis scorers Charlie Harris (14th), Gavin Monges (16th), Alex Arnheiter (19th) and Ani Ramakrishnan (20th), while Daniel Rowen was 48th for the locals.

Like O’Keeffe, Blue Devil boys standout Brian Song did not run Saturday and will begin his season when DHS runs in the first Delta Valley Conference meet Tuesday at Granite Regional Park.

The Devils will compete there twice this week as they return Saturday for the Sacramento State Hornet Jamboree.
