In what must have felt like déjà vu for the rest of the Delta Valley Conference, the Davis High girls and boys track and field teams rode their distance crews and pole vault performers to wins in the second league gathering on Wednesday at Brown Stadium.

For the Blue Devil boys — who finished ahead of second-place Monterey Trail, 165-109 — another highlight was Alexander McIntyre speeding to a victory with a 22.45 in the 200 meters.

DHS’ girls topped the Mustangs, 180-140, with the help of event wins from Joseena John (48.33 in the 300 hurdles) and Caitlin Mazzoleni (5-02 in the high jump).

“We won all four divisions so that was very good and the meet went really well. Our kids competed very well,” said Devil coach Spencer Elliott. “We have been training hard the past couple of days, so we told the kids not to worry so much about time, just finish ahead of the people next to you. Everyone went out and took care of business.”

But as usual, the story of the meet was Davis’ distance dominance.

Elliott called his team’s performance in the girls 800 nothing short of “awesome.”

Fiona O’Keeffe (2:17.93) led a 1-4 sweep in that race with Jeanne-Marie McPherson, Sophie Meads and Sofia Castiglioni all crossing within 2:21.35. For good measure, local Adria Lammer was seventh and Blue Devils Katherine Dimond, Claudia Robinson and Elise Chu took places 9-11.

It was a similar story in the 3,200 as O’Keeffe (11:07.62), Maggie McManis and Castiglioni filled the podium, with Meads in fifth and Claire Dicker, Giulia McIsaac and Hallie Lassiter also in the top 10.

McIsaac came back to capture the girls 1,600 in 5:16.79 with six other DHS runners — including Abigal Fisk and Zoe Juanitas — in the top nine.

Not to be outdone, the Devil female pole vaulters swept the top five spots with Lily Wolfe (10-06), Clara Riggle, Michaela Niva, Danielle Gantar and Kaity Honeychurch.

On the boys side, Davis got first-place finishes from its 4×400 relay squad, Nate Harper in the pole vault (14-06) and Victor Choi in the triple jump (40-01.25).

Completing the local success in the distance events, the Blue Devils went 1-2-3 in the boys 1,600 and 3,200.

In the shorter distance, it was Brian Song (4:27.33) in front of Ani Ramakrishnan and Ben Roberts. Ramakrishnan (10:01.78), Gavin Monges and Michael Vernau filled the podium in the 3,200.
