JV ROUNDUP: Girls polo finishes 28-3

By
October 27, 2010 |

EL DORADO HILLS Ñ While the Davis High varsity girls water polo team points with confidence to next monthÕs Sac-Joaquin Section tournament, the junior varsity program showed itÕs not exactly chopped liver, either.

Blowing through foes with a 28-3 record, the Blue Devil JVs captured the Oak Ridge Invitational last weekend.

ÒThe group played smart, tough defense and really aggressive offense all season, which brought them a great deal of success this year,Ó coach Dakotah Mohr said.

At Oak Ridge, Davis smoked Rocklin, 16-3; Granite Bay, 16-1; El Dorado, 14-0; and Bear River, 9-1; before getting past Rio Americano, 7-5, in the championship game.

With talented sophomores Katie Van Deynze, Claire Evans, Sofia Cardenas, Alicia Demaree, Lydia Fiero, Madison Weimer and Kallie Gregg joining freshman Lauren Owens, Heather Johnson, Jane Gunnell, Monica Ferrera, Yasmin Kouchesfahani and Emma Wu, the Blue Devils lost only one match to another JV program. Two of the localsÕ losses came at the hands of varsity teams.

Davis was tournament-ready all season. In addition to this weekendÕs crown, the Devils finished second in the September Los Altos Tournament and won the Vintage Crusher Classic earlier this month.

Field hockey has tough Chico road trips

Davis HighÕs junior varsity girls field hockey squad spent a lot of time up north recently.

Last Thursday, it was off to Chico in an effort to continue their winning ways.

The match was tough with strong play from both teams, but after overtime and strokes, the contest ended in a 2-2 tie.

Strong defensive play from Blue Devils Maddie Yeaman and Megan Dickson kept the ball out of Davis’ goal. Regulation ended in a 0-0 tie, leading the teams into overtime. The five-minute extra seven-on-seven period ended in a stalemate, sending the game decision into point-blank strokes.

With five players from each team shooting, DavisÕ Lucy Hass and Mikaela Zufelt were both successful, but so were two of the Chico players. The game ended in the tie with Òboth teams putting forth a good effort,Ó according to Devil coach Lindsay Smith.

DHS returned to Chico again Monday, but this time to face Pleasant Valley.

The Blue Devils had a rough first half, allowing the Vikings to score four unanswered goals.

Davis, however, came together in the second half to play at the level it is capable of, Smith reported.

ÒThe girls showed a lot of heart by not giving up after the first half and proved their strength as a team in the second half,Ó Smith continued.

The Blue Devils dominated play and kept the ball on the offensive side of the field for a majority of the half. Unfortunately, Davis wasnÕt able to put the ball in the net and the game ended 4-0.

DHSÕ last home game is Thursday at 3:30 p.m. against visiting Lassen on Susan Beaton Field.

Mt. SAC good cross country experience

Davis High cross country coach Bill Gregg likes his athletes to compete in the Mount San Antonio College Invitational in Walnut, because the Southern California school has one of the only courses where all athletes Ñ from beginner to elite Ñ run the same distance. It is also a good opportunity to race on hills, as the upcoming Delta Valley Conference finals, subsections and Sac-Joaquin championship meets are all on hilly layouts.

Knowing that, Gregg was pleased with his sophomore boys, who had the top DHS team finish of the day with a third-place effort, defeating 19 other schools in the process. Fourth-place finishes went to the junior varsity girls and boys and the sophomore and freshman girls.

Ethan Hall and Paul Mohr had top finishes in their divisions with their third- and fourth-place performances in the 10th-gradersÕ race.

Other outstanding efforts came from Lauren James (11th) and Laura Daggett (13th) in the sophomore girlsÕ race and Pooja Tripathi (13th) for the freshman girls. Reinert Toft (12th) and William Young (16th) had huge best times and were the top DHS finishers in the junior varsity races.

Sophomore John Testerman was 13th in the sophomore boysÕ race and freshman Daniel Rowen placed 12th in the frosh boysÕ division. Halley RainerÕs 34th place was the top DHS finish for JV girls.

Next up for the Blue Devils is the Delta Valley Conference championships, which will be conducted Saturday on the taxing Willow Hills course in Folsom.
