The Lady Blue Devils traveled up the road to Sacramento High on Tuesday evening to play in a nonleague “friendly” game. DHS came up a little short, losing 42-24 to the taller Dragons, who outrebounded the Devils, 59-37.

Kylie Drexel led the way for Davis with seven points, six steals and five assists, Maya Tarasenko added six points and six rebounds and Capriana Christian had seven points. Danielle Gantar added 10 boards, had five steals and scored two points, while Chloe Weinstock finished with a basket.

On Friday, in Delta Valley Conference action, the Blue Devils were strong from start to finish, winning 51-21.

“That was definitely our best team win,” DHS JV head coach Karen Foster said. “The girls played great defense. I told them after the first quarter, as long as we keep this style of defense up our offense will come easily … and it did.”

Drexel had another strong game, playing outstanding defense and finishing with 17 points and a game-high nine steals. Christian contributed 12 points and nine rebounds, with Tarasenko posting nine points and six boards. Gantar grabbed 13 boards and had five steals, finishing with two points. Destiny Smith added four points, Brendy Patino added three points, and Becca Hassid and Haley Blackwell rounded out the scoring with two each.

The Blue Devils are now sitting at 8-0 in DVC play with only two games left.

“It has been a long, long  time since a DHS girls JV basketball team has gone undefeated in league. Can we do it? I think we can!” Foster added.

DHS freshman girls basketball

The freshman Lady Blue Devils, despite going 1-2 on the week, were thiiissss close to being 3-0.

Last Tuesday, DHS dropped a 33-29 decision at Sacramento. It then won, 54-27, at Bella Vista, before getting nudged by Kennedy, 58-52, in a Friday home game.

Against the Dragons, the girls struggled to find a rhythm but were persistent and kept it close. Despite 28 turnovers, the Devils stayed in the game with 18 steals.

Tina Wilkins had a strong game with six points, while Sabrina Williams had 10 points and Brooke Palmer contributed four points, according to coach Kalyca Seabrook.

In the Bella Vista win, Jamie Kingsley had 12 points and seven rebounds; La’Rell Cato had 10 points, 11 boards and six six steals; Palmer had nine points and four steals and Wilkins had seven points and five rebounds.

Trailing by 15 at intermission, the Blue Devils nearly came back against Kennedy.

“I was extremely proud of my girls,” Seabrook said. “They played hard the whole game, supported each other, and never gave up. They played a great defensive game, creating a lot of turnovers with our full-court press, and (were) aggressive on offense. We played as a team and responded well to the pressures of a tight, competitive game.”

Williams led the team with 18 points and Cato added 12 points and 13 rebounds (eight of those in the fourth quarter). Wilkins contributed eight points.

“This was the best game I’ve seen my team play all season,” Seabrook added. “The bench was loud and cheered their teammates on. When substitutions were made the level intensity remained high. Kennedy is a tough team and the girls gave me 150 percent.”
