From page B8 | January 14, 2014 |

Heading into Delta Valley Conference play, the Davis High junior varsity girls basketball squad is ready for action and sporting an 11-4 nonleague record.

Like their varsity sisters, the JV Lady Blue Devils have a balanced scoring attack in which five players are averaging at least 5.3 points per game.

Led by freshman Alyssa Lengtat and sophomore Sarah Sherwin (both averaging 6.1 points a night), DHS took third place at last month’s Dorothy Speck Memorial Tournament and again at a recent Vacaville gathering. The Devils went 1-2 at the Oak Ridge Holiday Classic.

Now, Davis is getting set for its DVC opener against Elk Grove.

Featuring six freshmen and six sophomores, the Blue Devils have good depth and expect to compete with The Herd and Monterey Trail at the top of the conference.

Though they don’t have a league in which to play, the Lady Blue Devils freshman team nonetheless continues a strong season.

With St. Francis and Folsom circled on the upcoming schedule, 12-3 DHS gets to meet each squad twice.

The Devils are led by forward Maria Voss (13.5 ppg, 8.4 rebounds a night) and point guard Tiffany Miras (11.5 ppg, 5.3 steals average).

In going 7-2 in its three tournament visits, Davis won the Oakmont holiday event and went 2-1 in Rocklin and Del Campo tourneys.

An informational meeting for ninth- and 10th-grade girls interested in trying out for the Blue Devil junior varsity soccer team, and their parents, is set for Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. in Room N-8 at DHS.

According to longtime JV coach Robert Smith, the tryout process for ninth- and 10th-graders starts Tuesday, Feb. 4, with check-in and conditioning.

“Players are reminded that all DHS sports-participation forms must be submitted to, and cleared by, the DHS Athletic Department prior to participation in tryouts,” Smith explains.
