‘Grinder’ Aggies win 5th straight versus Cal Poly

DHS girls fall to Elk Grove again, 56-38

ELK GROVE — The Lady Blue Devils aren’t the healthiest of teams right now, however, Davis High coach Heather Highshoe knows that’s no excuse for Friday night’s 56-38 loss to Elk Grove.

Let’s make Davis once again a football town

It’s time to get serious again about football in this town. Five seasons have come and gone since UC Davis has posted a winning record. The Blue Devils haven’t been above .500 for longer than that. From the seats I sit in, waaaay up here, I see some nifty things going on at the high school. I […]

Victory didn’t come for the Davis High wrestling team, again, in Wednesday’s tri-meet against Pleasant Grove and Monterey Trail at the latter’s gym in Elk Grove.
