Devil QB Beckman worked hard to get to this point

It’s been eight years since Davis High last had a winning football season. With senior quarterback Jack Beckman taking on a leadership role, second-year head coach John Wiley believes that will help the Blue Devils turn the corner this fall. That 2007 playoff campaign saw DHS go 7-4 and make a one-round Sac-Joaquin Section tournament appearance under coach Jim Johnson. […]

* Editor’s note: “Countdown to Kickoff” is a daily Enterprise feature until UC Davis opens its season on Sept. 3 at Football Bowl Subdivision Nevada. Part of the UC Davis football misfortunes of 2014 was that the Aggies couldn’t get their defense off the field. UCD allowed more than 37 points per game and were the worst […]

Pro baseball roundup: River Cats fall to .500 with loss in Omaha

OMAHA, Neb. — The Sacramento River Cats were unable to resume their winning ways Monday in Omaha, falling 6-0 to the host Storm Chasers.

UCD women rally to take soccer win from Hornets

UC Davis women’s soccer player Riley Marshall probably wanted the postgame interviews to end in a hurry on Monday. She had a phone call to make.

UC Davis offense shines in final football camp scrimmage

* Editor’s note: “Countdown to Kickoff” is a daily Enterprise feature until UC Davis opens its season on Sept. 3 at Football Bowl Subdivision Nevada.

Blue Devils scrimmage state champs

It’s better to jump into the deep end of the pool than it is to wade in slowly, or so the thinking goes. The Davis High football team jumped right into the deep end Saturday night, taking on the defending state champion Folsom Bulldogs in their first scrimmage of the year. Unsurprisingly, Folsom reached the […]

Another flaccid Republic performance against bunkering Monarchs

SACRAMENTO — For the first three match-ups of the season, Sacramento Republic FC played down to the level of Real Monarchs SLC, statistically the worst side in the 24-team USL.
