In the Clubhouse: ‘Tin Cup’ facility drives on in northwest Davis

Off County Road 99, north of Covell Boulevard, there’s a little dirt path. It’s just wide enough for two vehicles to pass in opposite directions. At the end of the dust sits an operations center (converted from an old storage container), a straight row of tee pads and a seasonally themed driving range. While it’s […]

At 0-4, Aggie football season full of dichotomies

After another tough day at the office last Saturday, the smoke has cleared from a 31-24 UC Davis football loss at North Dakota. The Aggies have started 0-4 — the program’s worst beginning since the 1960 UCD squad lost its first seven games and went 0-8-1. This empty beginning is enough for some longtime Aggie supporters […]

Jesuit takes first leg of Causeway Classico

SACRAMENTO — Watched by the biggest crowd it’ll likely play in front of all season, the Davis High boys soccer team looked nothing like it did in a pair of mid-week winless games.

Republic eliminated in first round of playoffs

SACRAMENTO — It’s not going to be back-to-back USL titles for the Sacramento Republic FC, which dropped a 1-0 match to the visiting L.A. Galaxy II in Saturday’s playoff opener at Bonney Field.

Another error-plagued gridiron loss for UCD

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — For UC Davis football, the mountain to climb is about to get steeper — No. 14 Montana comes to town in six days. Meanwhile, the hole the Aggies are digging just got deeper — thanks to an unevenly played 31-24 road loss to North Dakota in Saturday’s Big Sky Conference opener […]

DHS runners O’Keeffe and Castiglioni go 1-2 at Stanford

The Davis High cross country team competes annually in the prestigious Stanford Invitational, and coach Bill Gregg always uses it as a chance to see where his squad is against top competition.

Blue Devils run into the Delta League wall

Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in nonconference play anymore.

The loss sent DHS to 2-2 on the season. The Devils came into the matchup on a two-game […]

Spieth leads at Tour Championship

ATLANTA — Jordan Spieth was so consumed with trying to make birdies and save pars on a rugged, rainy afternoon at the Tour Championship that he didn’t realize until after he signed for a 2-under 68 that he had a one-shot lead. He knows exactly what’s at stake Sunday in what was shaping up as […]

Parker’s three home runs power Giants over A’s

OAKLAND — Jarrett Parker had no words for being mentioned right along with Hall of Famer Willie Mays.
