DHS leave DVC competition in its wake

It wasn’t a surprise to the see the Davis High boys and girls dominating the Delta Valley Conference Swim Championships on Friday and Saturday at Arroyo Pool. But that doesn’t mean that their incredible times and scores were any less impressive.

The Blue Devil girls posted nearly three times as many points as their closest competitor, speeding past second-place Franklin, 601-224. The DHS boys finished comfortably ahead of Laguna Creek, 569-386, to capture their league title.

For the Devils — who won individual DVC championships in every event except one and all six relay crowns — six swimmers pulled off double victories including two freshmen. Ninth-graders Chenoa Devine and Sean Li each won a pair of individual crowns to join DHS senior Tara Halsted, juniors Matt Whittle and Alex Rieger and sophomore Riley Hickman. Additionally, all five speedsters were on at least one winning relay squad.

Devine swam a 1:52.80 to capture the 200 freestyle before coming back to outlast the field in the 500 free (4:56.19). She also joined Rieger, Marissa LaFreniere and Heather Johnson to give Davis a league title in the 200 free, and was part of the winning 400 free quartet with Halsted, LaFreniere and Emma Barksdale.

Li, meanwhile, sprinted his way to victories in the 50 (23.05) and 100 free (50.02) and teamed with Graham Fullerton, Tyler Ujifusa and Andrew Block to capture the DVC championship in the 200 free relay.

Halsted, Reiger, Whittle and Hickman tied Devine for most medals won with four as Halsted and Rieger got their second relay gold when they joined Barksdale and Kathleen Benjamin to take the 200 medley relay. Individually, Halsted touched first in the 100 backstroke and the 200 individual medley while Rieger was too fast for the field in the 50 and 100 free races.

Hickman and Whittle got relay wins with the 200 medley squad (joining Brad Nicholson and Jonathan Pun) and the 400 free quartet, which also included Pun and Block. Whittle added individual victories in the 200 I.M. and the 100 breaststroke, with Hickman taking the 100 butterfly and 200 free.

The Blue Devils got single wins from Vivian Chow (100 fly), Barksdale (100 breast) and Adam Raabe, who completed the 500 free in 4:51.91.

DHS now gets set for the Sac-Joaqiun Section Championship meet set for May 9-11 at Tokay High in Lodi. The Devils girls will be looking to defend their 2012 section crown, while the local boys try to improve on last year’s third-place finish.
