With the Davis High girls varsity basketball team ranked sixth among Sac-Joaquin Section D-I teams and heading into playoff action tonight, it must be noted that the Lady Blue Devils are loaded with seniors.

So, thank goodness, it comes as a relief to DHS fans that their junior varsity squad just finished up an 18-7 season which included a 9-1 run through Delta Valley Conference opponents.

Last Tuesday, the Devils hosted Franklin and came up at little short, losing 40-36.

“It was an exciting game and went down to the wire,” said DHS JV coach Karen Foster. “Danielle Gantar was strong on the boards with 11 rebounds, a game-high nine steals and six points.”

Kylie Drexel contributed 10 points for the Blue Devils, Capriana Christian added six points and seven rebounds, while Becca Hassid also had six points to go with four steals. Maya Tarasenko had four points and Brendy Patino and Danika Carlisle each scored two.

On Friday, it was off to Elk Grove as the locals wrapped the 2010-2011 campaign with a 42-21 triumph.

Gantar finished with another double-double — 12 points and 12 rebounds. Drexel added 11 points, Patino had five, Destiny Smith scored four, Chloe Weinstock and Carlisle added three points each and Daisy McKim and Jordan Banwarth finished with two apiece.

“This team played great basketball all season,” Foster added. “It was a terrific season and I am very proud of every player. I can’t wait to see how they do at the next level.”

DHS JV boys basketball

Similar to the first encounter, Franklin snuck past the Blue Devils, 73-71, on Wednesday as the DHS split its last two games of the season.

On Friday, Davis hammered visiting Elk Grove, 77-48, to finish at 21-6 overall and 8-2 in the competitive Delta Valley Conference.

“I was really pleased with the way we played this year,” Devils head coach Bob Silva said after the Thundering Herd fell. “Having these guys was a treat — and I can’t say enough about assistant coaches Bruce Berry and Gary Smith.

“Having (longtime University of Redlands player and coach) Smith right there is like having a basketball encyclopedia on the court.”

In the Franklin game, Hayden Russell’s 3-pointer actually put DHS up 65-64 in the fourth period, and Conor Brehm and Grant Dickerson also hit treys down the stretch, but two, final-minute Wildcats baskets kept the locals from the win. 
Dickerson finished with 21 points, Russell added 19 and Brehm canned 16. Daniel Bonetti added six, while Dickerson led all rebounders with 12. Russell contributed four assists and Brehm dished out three.

Against Elk Grove, Dickerson went 3-for-3 from 3-point land, while Russell was 2-for-3 and Tommy Slabaugh hit on 3-of-5 trey attempts. Russell’s 18 points led all scorers, Dickerson had 15 and Brehm added 11. Dickerson’s 11 rebounds were also a game high — as were his five blocks and five steals.

DHS frosh boys basketball

The Blue Devils had an outstanding season, according to head coach Dino Clark:

“The boys have developed as basketball players, taking something positive out of each game whether a win or a loss.

“Freshman basketball is a time where players continue to learn fundamentals of basketball. I felt that my freshman team started out crawling in November, learned how to walk during the season and are now running to the JV level.”

DHS played in the Delta River League with Jesuit, Grant, Folsom and Oak Ridge due to many of the Delta Valley Conference teams not having freshman teams this year. Although the DRL was a tough league, says Clark, “The boys did an outstanding job.”

During league play the Devils won both games against Grant, split with Oak Ridge, won both games against Folsom and the highlight of their season was beating rival Jesuit, 57-53.

In the last game against Grant (a 57-34 win), Brett Bloomfield was the high scorer with 13 points and C.K. Hicks was the leading rebounder with five.

Earlier, in a 56-47 loss at Oak Ridge, Benjamin Crook had 23 points for DHS, and Logan Davis led in rebounding with six.

In the victory over Jesuit, the Devils’ leading scorers were Hicks, with 18 points and 12 rebounds, and Crook with 12 points.

Two days later, the Marauders got revenge with an 84-56 win over DHS, despite 14 points from Alexander Nelson and 11 by Matthew Trask. Hicks once again controlled the boards with 11 rebounds.

“This was a good learning experience for my boys,” said Clark, who’s team finished 15-9 overall and 6-4 in league play. “(I am) very proud of what they accomplished.”

Throughout the season, the Blue Devils got solid contributions from Emilio Barber, Hudson Forrester, Andrija Marquez, Austin Lampley, Nick Yaver, Andre Foster, Sam Ridgley and Bailey Murray.
