DHS roundup: Devil boys win their way into NorCal tennis tourney

By From page B4 | May 12, 2013

Despite the Davis High boys tennis team finishing second in the Sac-Joaquin Section — its the first time in five years the Blue Devils weren’t the champs — the locals still are headed to NorCals thanks to a dominating 9-1 victory over Bella Vista on Friday.

DHS faced the section’s Division II champions on the Broncos’ home courts, but had little trouble earning a spot in Friday’s NorCal Tournament. The Devils are the SJS’s No. 2 team, and will take on Central Coast Section runner-up Serra in an 11 a.m. match at Natomas Racquet club.

Against Bella Vista, Glenn Hull cruised to a 6-0, 6-2 win at No. 1 as the Blue Devils captured five of six singles matches. Other Davis winners included Andrew Dumit (6-0, 6-3), Sean Mishra (6-4, 6-4), Isaac Zhang (6-2, 6-1) and Scott Lucio, who prevailed, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 6.

The locals were untouchable in doubles play as Bob Li teamed with Manraj Gill for a 6-2, 7-5 victory at No. 1, Chris Chinn/Sam Yoder won 6-2, 6-0 at No. 2 and Brendan Zhu/Louis Pak triumphed 6-4, 6-2 at No. 3.

The Sacramento Valley Lacrosse League champion Blue Devils (16-3) were rewarded for their undefeated conference record of 12-0 by getting to host a North Coast Section first-round match.

Granite Bay, a fellow SVLL squad that went 12-6 this fall including a pair of losses to DHS, will be at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium for the postseason contest on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The Grizzlies were in town just over one week ago, falling to the Devils, 10-7, on Davis’ Senior Night. Local standout Mikie Schlosser had five goals in that game and had a hat trick in the Blue Devils’ 7-3 victory over GBHS earlier this season.

In quarterfinal play on Thursday, the Trojans (12-4-3) went on the road to defeat Enochs, 2-1, and the Devils got a goal from Gaby Herrera in the final seconds to edge Granite Bay, 1-0, at Yudin Field.

Versatile Blue Devil Ashleigh Vandenbrink, who won the Delta Valley Conference MVP award this winter, has signed a national letter of intent to join the women’s basketball program at Oregon Tech.

The 5-foot-10 Vandenbrink scored 16.4 points per game with 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 3.2 steals to help DHS win the DVC at 9-1. The Devils finished 23-5 overall and made the second round of the section playoff tournament.

She plans to major in engineering, while playing basketball for Lady Owls coach Scott Meredith.

“Ashleigh is a dynamic basketball player that understands how to play the game and does the little things well,” Meredith said. “Averaging a double-double from the guard position speaks volumes, as does her long list of MVP’s and all-league honors. Playing at the highest level of high school basketball in California in a very competitive league indicates she is battle-tested. She is a perfect fit for our roster and we are thrilled Ashleigh chose Oregon Tech.”
