SAN JOSE — The freshman members of the Davis High junior varsity water polo team competed in the Frosh Jamboree at Bellarmine last Friday, winning all three of their games.

“This is the first time we have had enough freshmen on the JV team to compete in an event like this, and they did a great job,” said Blue Devil JV coach George Papador.

Opening up against host Bellarmine, DHS got four goals from Alex Preisler, two from Peter Blumberg and another from George Van Horhis in a 7-3 victory.

Van Horhis tallied  three more times in the next contest to lead the Devils past Miramonte, 10-3. Other scoring in that game came from Jack Liu and Steven Casposs, with two each, and Matt Blackwell, Preisler and Blumberg with one apiece.

Davis then defeated rival Jesuit, 10-3, as Stefan Kaloper, Nate Burmas, Blumberg and Preisler each scored twice and Scott Soderquist and Blackwell found the net once each.

Throughout the tournament, local goalies Garrett Dawson and Lucas Brown both performed well, combining to allow just six goals.

The Blue Devils continued their excellent early-season play, posting three solid wins before a disappointing loss at Jesuit broke up their unbeaten streak in the eighth game of the fall.

In a 4-2 win over Marin Academy, Jaleel Dmeiri started off the scoring, blasting a shot home after a long run.

Ricky Gonzales made it 2-0 and Ethan Hessl put in the third goal. After Marin scored twice to cut into the lead, Gonzales put the game away when he knocked in a rebound off the post.

Gonzales kept up his scoring spree with a goal in DHS’ 3-1 victory at Granite Bay. Later, Ben Tang twisted in a corner kick and Jay Kraft headed in a Tang corner to complete the Devil scoring. Throughout the game, the defense of Ryan Strong, Buddhika Ratnasiri, Alex Dhond and Chris Marelich, and top-notch midfield play from Sebastian Gonzales, Matteo Sorrentino and Francis Avoce kept the locals in control.

Davis then beat Woodland, 5-0, with Luis Coronado, Tang, Matt Cheung, Sammy Walker and Hessl netting goals.

On Friday, Jesuit crushed the Blue Devils, 8-2.

Despite missing several players due to injury, DHS actually dominated the beginning of the contest, but couldn’t keep it going.

Eventually, the Marauders scored several times on set plays and long balls and Devil goals from Bob Scott and Matt Rowen weren’t enough.

DHS cross country

Running on a two-mile grass course at the Pacific Tigers Invitational in Stockton on Saturday, the Blue Devil cross country underclassmen won three out of their four races. The DHS JV girls and boys and frosh/soph girls all took first, while frosh/soph boys placed third.

Jasmine Casillas was the top Devil runner of the day, winning the frosh/soph girls race in 12:31, and her teammates also had strong races, with five finishing in the top 10. Sarah Sherwin (12:44) was third, with Elise Chu four seconds back taking fourth. Julia Zabala, Lily Clouse and Emily Talbert packed together in 6-8 places, and Meghan Bobrowsky rounded out the top seven with her 20th-place finish.

Davis’ JV girls were led by a sixth- through ninth-place sweep by Katherine Dimond (13:38), Michaela Joerger, Mikayla Finver and Suleikha Sutter. Siena Cox, Arden Ambrose-Winter and Robyn Fields were the other local finishers.

Andrew Leung was the Blue Devil boys’ top JV finisher, taking second place in 11:18. Geo Kim (fifth in 11:24) was the next DHS runner across the line, while Cameron McCarty, Zachary Moffatt and Tyler Powell all placed in the top 11. Kian Tanner and Kyle Clancy concluded the Devils’ top seven.

Leading the local frosh/soph boys were Andrew Amen (seventh in 11:12) and Fox Conner (10th in 11:17). Jackson Laird, Brendan Deas and Nicholas Leacox were next across the finish line for Davis, with Aidan Cox and Jacob Comingore finalizing the top seven.
