Sports briefs: Bars are this Aggie’s specialty

By
From page B8 | January 22, 2014 |

Junior Lisa Wiktorski became the first UC Davis gymnast to claim a conference weekly award, when she was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Specialist of the Week on Tuesday. This is the first career weekly honor for the Aggie uneven bars standout, who is from Huntington Beach.

Wiktorski, a returning All-MPSF performer on bars, tied her career best of 9.850 in that event during Saturday’s quad meet at Washington. She finished in a tie for third place in a tough field.

A Junior Olympics qualifier during her club days with Team OC, Wiktorski had sat out of competition for almost a full year by the time she enrolled at UCD. Nonetheless, she worked herself into the bars lineup as a freshman, then rebounded from a slow start to capture all-conference honors as a sophomore. Wiktorski first hit 9.850 in a home dual with San Jose State last season.

This is the first season the MPSF has split up its weekly awards program, also honoring a Gymnast of the Week and Newcomer of the Week.

Wiktorski and Company are back in action on Sunday when the Aggies host Stanford, San Jose State and Utah State in a 1 p.m. quad meet at The Pavilion.

Baseball academy

Using several professional baseball players and scouts to help with assessment, the Davis Baseball Academy will have tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High varsity field.

Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level.

Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as pros with local ties, including minor-league players Mike Turay, Ben Eckels and Ray Hernandez and Milwaukee Brewers scout Justin McCray.

If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled.

Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com.

For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or kakeef7@yahoo.com.

Post 77 fundraiser

The annual American Legion Post 77 crab feed, a fundraiser to support Legion baseball and other youth sports functions, is set for Saturday at Waite Hall at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

A no-host social hour goes from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and is followed by a crab and prawn dinner. Tickets are $40.

For tickets or more information, call 530-662-9772 Monday through Friday between 1 and 8 p.m.

DHS JV girls soccer

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 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.

For more information, contact Smith at robertsmith2312@gmail.com.
