JV/FROSH ROUNDUP: Girls polo excels at tourney

By
September 14, 2010 |

LOS ALTOS Ñ They were thiiiiissssss close to winning SaturdayÕs Los Altos High junior varsity girls water polo tournament, but when the waves calmed, Davis High had taken second place

after a sudden-death overtime loss to St. Francis (Mountain View).

Mohr, the 2007 Davis High Athlete of the Year and a water polo star at UC Davis, went on to say, ÒThis weekend was a good starting point, and an even better learning experience for us.Ó

The Devils are now 4-1.

In the tournament opener on Thursday, DHS hammered Palo Alto, 11-2.

Sophomore Claire Evans scored four goals and freshman Heather Johnson added three. With Lauren Owens and Sofia Cardenas adding two apiece, DHS cruised. Kat Van Deynze, Madison Weimer and Kallie Gregg rounded out the scoring.

Cardenas and Van Deynze had two goals each in a 7-2 win over Menlo (Atherton) with goalie

Alicia Demaree blocking five shots.

ÒWe have a balanced offensive attack, which makes our team hard to guard É and a very strong goalie in Alicia. (She) anchors our defense,Ó Mohr added.

A win over Leland Ñ in an 11-1 match early Saturday Ñ propelled the Devils into the title tilt.

Van Deynze and Cardenas again were leading scorers, each splashing home three tallies. Two goals for both Gregg and Owens, added to JohnsonÕs strike, rounded out the scoring.

Owens (three), Jane Gunnell and Cardenas were the scorers in DavisÕ title game while keeper Demaree turned back five St. Francis attempts.

Field hockey

Early this season, defense has been the name of the game for Davis HighÕs junior varsity field hockey team.

Splitting a pair of games with Corning (a 2-1 loss in overtime) and River Valley (a 2-0 victory), coach Lindsay Smith has been pleased with the defense and hopes the goals start coming.

On Monday against Corning, the Cardinals came out strong, but Davis held on for a scoreless tie at intermission.

Smith pointed to Òsome great defensive play by Megan Dickson, Maddie Yeaman and Kelly Ragsdale.Ó

But Corning scored first off a short corner to make it 1-0 in the second half. Davis answered shortly after with a strong hit from the top of the circle by Shelby Stahl.

The remaining regulation minutes were tense, as goalie Ally Weir stopped one attempt after another to end regulation at 1-1.

The teams then played a five-minute seven-on-seven, sudden-death battle.

Strong Devil play from Stahl and Emily Barber up top, Rachel Paul and Mikaela Zufelt in the

midfield and Dickson and Yeaman at defense forced penalty strokes.

Five players from each team alternated taking shots on the goalies. Elizabeth Leshuk scored the lone goal for Davis, and although Weir came up strong with three saves, Corning was able to score two to win.

DHSÕ next game is today at Bella Vista at 3:30 p.m.

Against River Valley last week, Stahl scored off a pass from Daley Glander and Barber tallied

when Paul found her open, providing a perfect pass.

ÒNatalie Silver had a few strong shots on goal that just couldnÕt make it over the goal line,Ó Smith added, explaining that once again defenders Megan Dickson, Yeaman and Leshuk were formidable.Ó

Frosh volleyball

After dropping a 25-6, 25-21 season-opening decision to Christian Brothers, the DHS freshman girls volleyball team has come on like thunder and lightning.

In the recent Pioneer Frosh Tournament, coach Lyndsay CantrellÕs ninth-graders finished second, losing again to Christian Brothers in the finals.

Then on Thursday, the Blue Devils topped Edison (Stockton) in straight sets, 25-13, 25-17.

ÒI am excited about the team. They have come a long way quickly,Ó Cantrell believes. ÒJennifer Blanc is doing really well at the net. In the game against Edison she had four kills and two blocks. Julia Fisk and Mackenzie Harrison are coming out as strong setters, too.Ó

Cantrell went on to say that Danielle Gantar is the DevilsÕ most consistent outside hitter.

ÒShe has a strong serve … and had two aces in our match against Edison. Fisk is probably the strongest and most consistent server, she had four aces against Edison,Ó Cantrell added.

ÒMary Ellen Price and Haley Blackwell are the only two girls on the team that I can throw into any

position and they can get the job done, and that is really nice to have as a coach.Ó

Cross country

SACRAMENTO Ñ DavisÕ junior varsity girls cross country team Ñ paced by a 1-2-3 individual sweep Ñ captured first place in SaturdayÕs Hornet Jamboree at Granite Regional Park.

Outdistancing more than 100 runners from more than a dozen area schools, Halley Rainer came home in 12:55 for the win, while DHS teammates Jocelyn Labelle (13:02) and Maggie Campos (13:13) finished second and third.

Other top 10 runners for DHS were Brenna Perlman (seventh in 14:04), Cassidy Garcia (eighth at 14:09), Danya Axelrad-Hausman (ninth in 14:13) and Julia Ainsworth (10th in 14:23).

In the Frosh/Soph competition, the Davis girls came home in second as a team, behind Oak Ridge, with DHSÕ Sophie Meads (11:16) winning.

With the JV boys taking third, Eliot Childress (11:05 in ninth) and Ian Bloise (11:09 in 11th) were the top two local runners. Greg Jorgenson (11:24) and Evan Eggleston (11:25) earned top 20 finishes in 17th and 18th, respectively.

Frosh/soph boys Ñ while finishing in fourth place overall Ñ saw Sugal Sutter (eighth in 10:10), Ethan Hall (10:44 in 21st) and John Testerman (10:49, good for 24th) crack the top 25.

Coach Bill Gregg says it was a good look for whatÕs ahead in league.
