JV/FROSH ROUNDUP: DHS goes 2-1 at Curry

By
December 20, 2010 |

\n

The Davis High boys junior varsity basketball team just missed winning its own version of the Les Curry Invitational last weekend.

\n

In wining the consolation crown, the Blue Devils won two straight games after dropping the tournament opener, 52-48, to Vanden. DHS played the game without three starters, who had a school musical commitment.

\n

The Devils then collected themselves and easily defeated their next two opponents: Vintage (70-27) on Friday and Natomas (75-36) on Saturday.

\n

When the contest was close early against Natomas, Davis head coach Bob Silva made changes that allowed his guys to pull away.

\n

“In the second half, we talked about making defensive adjustments,” Silva explained. “The kids listened .. they stepped up.”

\n

Tournament leaders for DHS were Conor Brehm, with 43 points; Hayden Russell, with 30 points, nine rebounds, and 17 assists; Nick Denton, with 18 points and nine rebounds; Brandon Strong, with 15 points and four boards; Daniel Bonetti, with 14 points and 25 rebounds; Tommy Slabaugh, with 14 points and six caroms; Matt Michael, with 13 points and eight rebounds and Grant Dickerson, with 11 points and 17 rebounds.

\n

Brehm was named to the all-Curry team.

\n

Earlier last week, the Blue Devils beat Pioneer, 65-31.

\n

Davis held the Patriots scoreless in the first quarter and rolled as James Kilkenny hit 3-of-4 3-point baskets to set the tone.

\n

Russell scored 17 points, and had five rebounds, six assists and 3 steals, Brehm added 11 points, three assists and four steals and Strong had eight points. Michael (four points, three assists, six rebounds, four steals) and Slabaugh (five rebounds) also contributed.

\n

DHS plays Wood tonight at 5:30 p.m.

JV wrestling

\n

Marvin Grant, a Blue Devil freshman wrestling at 195 pounds, went 5-0 to capture his division\’s title during an invitational meet Saturday at Whitney High School in Rocklin.

\n

Another freshman, Adrian Buono-Gonzalez (112 lbs), went 4-1, finishing second after a dramatic, four-overtime setback. Junior Scott Derby (145) fought off a week-long illness and took second in his weight class with a 4-1 tournament.

\n

Andy Schmidl, wrestling at 135 as a 10th-grader, was 3-2 (one loss by injury default) and placed third.

\n

“They are working hard in practice and they\’re big-eyed — they want to know — they\’re not satisfied with competing,” DHS head coach Ty Browns said of his young grapplers. “They thirst for victory on the mat. But most of them understand that it\’s a process based on training, gaining experience and technique knowledge.

\n

“Too many Davis kids are outcome oriented (wins and losses) with no perception of the process. We work hard to keep track of what our focus is … and that\’s the process: we do that, and winning becomes the byproduct of that process.”

\n

\n

Freshman boys basketball

\n

Coach Dino Clark\’s Blue Devil freshman team has come back strong after losing its first two games of the season.

\n

After finishing ninth of 16 teams in the Natomas Nighthawk Tournament recently, DHS — with wins over Woodland and Pioneer last week — is now 5-2.

\n

In the five-game winning streak, the Devils have beaten Natomas (63-32), Pioneer (77-28), Forest Lake Christian (88-24), Woodland (60-35) and Pioneer (55-25).

\n

Against NHS, Benjamin Crook scored 18 points, while both Alexander Nelson and Austin Lampley added 12. In topping the Patriots the first time, Brett Bloomfield led all Davis scorers with 12. Crook added 11 and C. K. Hicks, Lampley and Nelson each had 10.

\n

In the Forest Lake game, Lampley\’s 18 points were supported by 16 from Nelson, 15 from Bloomfield and Sam Ridgley\’s 12.

\n

Lampley\’s 18-point performance and Bloomfield\’s 13 points paced DHS past Woodland and Nelson (13) and Lampley (10) led the charge against Pioneer the second time around.

\n

Today at 4 p.m., the Blue Devils were to meet Will C. Wood.

JV girls basketball

\n

It wasn\’t exactly what head coach Karen Foster had in mind — she could have done without the 29 turnovers — but the DHS girls\’ offense came alive as the Blue Devils rolled to a 61-40

\n

victory at Armijo last Tuesday.

\n

“We used our full-court press the entire first half, forcing (them) into 19 first-half turnovers,” Foster said. “We had way too many turnovers ourselves, but we were still able to execute our offense.”

\n

With the Indians sitting in 2-3 zone, Davis was able to hit its outside shots. It was another night of balanced scoring for the 5-1 Devils, as Danika Carlisle had 11 points and seven rebounds and Danielle Gantar collected a dozen boards and added nine points with six steals. Chloe

\n

Weinstock added eight points for DHS, while Becca Hassid and Kylie Drexel had seven each. Maya Tarasenko and Brendy Patino each had five, with Maya contributing four steals.

\n

Today, the Blue Devil travel to Napa before returning home Wednesday for a game against Wood. Davis will then participate in the Ram Jam in Dixon from Dec. 27-30.

\n

Note: Thanks to coaches Karen Foster and Ty Brown as well as Carol Atkins, Rebecca Foster and Ken Murray for their assistance in reporting scores and performances.
