Shooting solid rounds from top to bottom, the Davis High junior varsity boys golf team took  a 244-270 decision over Folsom on April 9 at Wildhorse.

Blue Devil Ryan Glouderman was the match medalist with a 44, with teammates Garrett Scott-Henley (47) and Utkarsh Uppal (48) close behind.

Three DHS golfers carded 49s — Quinn Foster, Keeret Dhesi and Dylan Lee — while Tyler McGlone was in the clubhouse at 50.

Other Devil scorers included Clayton Webster (51) and Ashish Patel (51), Aaron Levin-Fay (52), Caban Moore (54) and Chris Gardias (62).

DHS JV boys lacrosse

The Blue Devils topped Campolindo, 13-5, and lost to Granite Bay, 11-3, in matches last week.

Blasted by the Grizzlies and the north wind April 9 on the road, DHS coach Adam Price summed it up:

“In the first half, we kept it close by playing some of our best six-on-six defense of the year. Brian Johnstone and Connor Spann made a lot of great plays and contributed to our holding Granite Bay to only three goals at the half.

“But Granite Bay is a strong team and dominated on ground balls — we need to get more aggressive, not wait for the ball to come to us. We need to work on our mental toughness and go in expecting to beat a team like this. I think we were surprised to be within one goal going into the half. In upcoming games, we have to expect ourselves to do that well and better.”

Despite a relentless Granite Bay attack, Devil goalie Spann kept his cool (making two saves in quick succession), allowing sophomore attacker Griffin McNamara to find to a flying midfielder Matthew Scheiber, who scored.

In the second quarter, the Davis offense found its groove, giving the defense some well-deserved rest. But the Grizzlies were up to the task.

With his team now down 3-1, Scheiber worked to get a man-up situation. Local attacker Justin Reno battled to maintain possession and sent a pinball pass from the middle of traffic to Isaiah West, who quick-sticked Davis onto the scoreboard. Thanks to a takeaway and strong effort by freshman defender Jake Griffiths (with more support by Johnstone and Spann), the Blue Devils stayed close, going into the halftime down only 3-2.

The third and fourth quarters saw a string of GBHS goals, until, with one minute to go, West was open in front of the crease and Reno found him with a clockwork feed, ending the scoring.

DHS’ Jed Arvin and Jackson Herget contributed strongly on face-offs in the contest, while Spann had nine saves and led the way with 10 ground balls with 10. Arvin and freshman defender Hunter Harris wrestled for five grounders apiece, with Scheiber, Tom Thornton, Reno, Johnstone and Connor Amesbury also scooping up multiple balls. Harris, McNamara, Griffiths and Johnstone had two takeaways each.

The Devils’ Friday road game was very different as the locals dominated Campolindo in Moraga.

The starting attack trio of Arvin, McNamara and West paced the scoring with three goals apiece, using well-executed perimeter passing. Additionally, Reno scored twice, as did sophomore midfielder Yared Haile.

The entire Davis defense was strong, led by Harris, Griffiths and Spann, who made 13 saves.

Also in the victory, Blue Devil freshman midfielder Alex Levine captured three ground balls, ran the field well and managed to hang onto the ball despite heavy hits from the Cougars. Sophomore midfielder Jake Guida was instrumental on clears, while sophomore midfielder Logan James used his aggressiveness to get the job done around the crease. Herget led on groundballs with seven.

DHS frosh/soph track & field

The Blue Devils posted big-time efforts at Saturday’s Halden Invitational.

DHS’ Katherine Dimond captured the girls 800 meters, covering the distance in 2:33.84, while Isolde Pierce smoked the field in the 300 hurdles, going 49.48. In the 4×400 relay, the Devils’ 4:17.15 was good for first.

In field events, local high jumper Amelia Otto-Cutting went 5-0 to take honors and Davis’ Yrenly Uan’s 32-10¼ won the girls triple jump.

Woodland’s Keenan Calhoun (12-0 in the pole vault) was Yolo County’s only frosh/soph boys event winner.
