DVC champion Herd hits DHS wrestlers hard

ELK GROVE — After starting the Delta Valley Conference season with a pair of wins, the Davis High wrestling team dropped its third straight match on Wednesday, ending its league slate with a 76-3 road loss to DVC champion Elk Grove.

The lone Blue Devil wrestler to pick up a victory was senior Marvin Grant. The 184-pounder missed last week with the flu, but came back strong to finish the conference season at 3-1 individually.

“It was a big victory for Marvin, coming back,” said DHS coach Ty Brown. “Not to be negative, but there were not many other positives coming from (Wednesday).”

Though the Thundering Herd (5-0) were the heavy favorites, having won the DVC championship for more than 25 years in a row according to Brown, the veteran coach was still not happy with his team’s work.

“We didn’t wrestle with great effort (Wednesday),” Brown said. “We got away from Blue Devil wrestling. We didn’t stick with what’s made us successful up to this point. I’m always a glass half-full kind of guy, but finding positives … was very difficult.”

Other than Grant, only junior Connor Spann (160) earned Brown’s praise for his Wednesday performance. Spann was leading his match 2-1 before getting pinned with just five seconds remaining in the third round.

“It was a butt-kicking all the way around,” Brown said. “There was no sugar-coating.”

The Devil boys will have the next nine days off before the DVC championships begin Feb. 15 at Laguna Creek. According to Brown, the break will give the locals time to improve:

“We’ll look at our film study. We’ll be very, very critical of ourselves on film. We’ll ask ourselves: are we wrestling Blue Devil-style wrestling? We’re going to bounce back. We understand that there’s a lot of stuff that we can pull from this (loss).”

While the boys are off this weekend, the Davis girls will head to the Sac-Joaquin Northern Regional tournament at McNair High in Stockton starting Friday.

Brown expects all three girls on the Blue Devil squad, including Sasha Bohatch-Garcia, who has been out with an injury, to wrestle.

The top four wrestlers from each weight class will advance to the girls state tournament in Leedmore.
