It’s This-n-That Friday …

UCD basketball camp: Aggie assistant coach Kevin Nosek reports that UC Davis’ four-day summer youth basketball camp almost is full.

It starts June 16.

The terrific instruction for boys and girls ages 4-13 features UCD head coach Jim Les, Aggie staff and players running two different camp levels.

The Blue Division (which goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) is for boys ages 8 to 13 (girls, with parents’ discretion, are welcome). That level costs $215 (an extra $20 gets lunch each day).

Boys and girls ages 4-7 are invited to the Gold Division camp (9 a.m. to noon, $110).

More information and registration forms can be found at https://ucdavissportscamps.com/mensbasketball.

And speaking of Aggie basketball, women’s coach Jennifer Gross and her husband Joe Teramoto (a UCD assistant) have started the shot clock as the couple are expected to welcome their second child any day now.

Wonder if it’s too early to sign up the new kid for one of Les’ camps?

When Guerrero is actually Gutierrez: I wrote about the recent Davis High junior varsity baseball season last week. While most of the article went well, I was charged with an error.

When writing about the exploits of Gabe Gutierrez, my dyslexia kicked in and I called him Jake Guerrero.

Let me see if I can undo this miscue.

While Guerrero hit .353 and pitched effectively, Gutierrez batted .294, with three doubles, four triples, 15 runs batted in and one of the team’s three dingers. His on-base percentage was .424 with a respectable .500 slugging percentage.

Each had terrific years, but I wanted to make sure Gutierrez got his due.

I’m off to take extra ground balls.

Crowded field gets another Blue Devil: When the Sac-Joaquin Masters track and field meet concludes Friday at Elk Grove High, there should be a passel of local athletes faring well.

As usual, DHS will be well-represented in the mid- to long-distance races.

As if 30 Blue Devils weren’t enough going in, now comes word that Charlie Harris — an alternate for the 1,600 meters — has made the field.

Joining Brian Song (4:19.50), Ben Roberts (4:19.52) and Ani Ramakrishnan (4:21.27) in the event, Harris’ 4:31.63 was three seconds short of qualifying last week. But a dropout put him in the showcase.

The Davis quartet is going to have to get hopping since Nevada Union’s Garrett Migliozzi was the race’s top qualifier (4:10.35).

Speaking of basketball and Blue Devils: Running the same time as the UCD camp is the Davis High basketball program’s four-day session (June 16-19).

Boys in fourth and fifth grades will go from 8 a.m. to noon with sixth- through 12th-graders playing from noon to 4 p.m.

According to DHS coach Dan Gonzalez, the camp “is designed for young hoopsters to learn the fundamentals of the game through drills as well as team and individual competitions.”

In a flier, the coach says “future Blue Devils can catch a glimpse of what is necessary to play competitive basketball at the next level … while getting to know the program and staff.”

Registration is $100. Sign-up forms and more information are at www.dhsbluedevils.com.
