Lots to check in on, so let’s get started …

Ex-Devil nearby: A story earlier this week focused on the current diamond assignments of past and present UC Davis baseball players and former Davis High standouts. I thought I had it covered, but ex-Blue Devil George Hatamiya was nowhere to be found in the article.

Now comes word that the Haverford College standout is playing summer ball in Yuba City for the 25-5 Gold Sox.

Playing behind the plate and in the outfield, the 2012 DHS graduate is hitting .237 — exactly what he hit for Haverford (Pennsylvania), which went 23-20 this spring.

Cross-training success: The recent Reebok Games in San Jose saw a Davis CrossFit team take eighth place while local Kirsten Pedri took 12th individually out of 40 women in the regionals. Another Davis team member, Corey Schmidt, was 31st in the 40-man field.

The Davis cross-trainers qualified for the seven-event gathering from more than 2,000 athletes in the region. To receive a regional invitation, competitors had to place in the north state’s top 50 individuals and top 30 teams.

Labor Race taking entries: If you’re a runner, circle the date — Sept. 1, Labor Day.

That’s the day the 19th annual Golden Valley Harriers races will be run, starting at Central Park in downtown Davis.

Two flat, entertaining distances — a 5K and a 10K — will test runners and a Kids’ Fun Run is ticketed for 1K.

Food and drinks, music and fun for children are part of the draw — as is a nifty, modern-looking T-shirt to the first 1,000 5K and 10K race entrants.

Whole Foods Market is providing a “delicious and healthy runner’s breakfast,” according to one GVH spokesperson.

Last year, the races raised more than $12,000 in support of the regional running community. This year’s beneficiaries include Davis, Woodland, River City and Dixon high school cross country programs, special needs Team Davis and the Friends of Davis sister city Inuyama, Japan. Runners from the sister city will be on hand as the Labor Day event is considered a cultural exchange.

Awards will be presented, and for registration information, visit www.goldenvalleyharriers.org. There is no cost for the kids’ run, but registration is required. Cost for the 5K and 10K races is $28 through July 31. Then, it will be $30 until Aug. 27, and $32 after that.

Football, anyone? The Davis Junior Blue Devils football and cheer organization is accepting applications for the upcoming season.

Youngsters ages 6 to 14 may apply. The football cost is $350 while the cheer cost is $325.

Practices begin July 22 and families can sign up at www.juniorbluedevils.com.

Water ballet: Music from across the pond will be featured at the Davis AquaStarz’s annual synchronized swimming water show, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights at Community Pool.

The show boasts “amazing costumes, hot British music and show-stopping synchro moves performed by the undefeated Davis AquaStarz,” a news release said.

Tickets are $8 at the door.
