Sports briefs: Blue Devil girls conclude their wrestling season

By
From page B2 | February 12, 2014 |

The wrestling season came to an end for all three girls on the Davis High wrestling team on Friday, when each exited winless from the Sac-Joaquin Northern Regional tournament at McNair High in Stockton.

Sophomores Sasha Bohatch-Garcia and Sienna Martinez as well as junior Lisa Ghiglieri all participated for the Blue Devils in the tournament.

“When you get to that level of an event, there are some really talented wrestlers,” said DHS coach Ty Brown. “It’s going to take a little bit more experience. (The girls are) one year away from being able to go out there and be able to compete.

“It was a big-time tournament. We knew going into it that it was going to be a tough challenge.”

While the girls season is finished, the Devil boys will take part in the Delta Valley Conference Championships on Saturday at Laguna Creek.

The DVC coaches will meet Thursday in Elk Grove to determine the seeding for the individual wrestlers in the tournament. The top four athletes in each weight class will move on to the SJS divisional tournament the following weekend at Franklin.

DHS girls frosh hoops

The Blue Devils got a pair of wins last week and they couldn’t have come in more different ways. Following a 57-15 road win at River City on Feb. 4, DHS went to St. Francis on Friday and came away with a 37-35 victory.

Beating the Troubadours avenged a Devil loss from the previous week and put Davis’ record at 18-4.

The win came in memorable fashion as Blue Devil Audrey Dufresne scored the winning basket off an offensive rebound with four seconds left, then stole the ensuing inbounds pass to secure the victory.

DHS trailed 12-11 after the first quarter, and St. Francis expanded that lead over the next two periods, eventually entering the fourth with a 34-26 advantage.

Following a defensive mistake at the end of the third period, Devil coach Brett Andersen challenged his team to play its best defensive quarter of the season — and Davis responded. The Troubadours were held without a field goal in the final stanza, while the locals made key plays down the stretch.

Nicole Pugh scored consecutive baskets with two minutes left, one off a steal and assist from Dufresne, and moments later, Tiffany Miras tied the game on a short jump shot.

That set the stage for Dufresne’s heroics. The winning putback gave her season highs in points (10) and rebounds 17, while Pugh added nine points and five steals.

In the Feb. 4 win over River City, Miras paced the Lady Blue Devils with 19 points and Maria Voss pitched in with 12. DHS held an 18-7 lead after one quarter, then outscored its opponent 30-4 in the next two periods to run away with the game.

The Devils play three more contests this week, concluding with Friday’s season finale at home against El Dorado.

UCD women’s gymnastics

Aggie sophomore Stephanie Stamates garnered her second consecutive Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Specialist of the Week award while redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki picked up her second Newcomer of the Week nod in three weeks when the accolades were announced on Tuesday.

This is the fourth straight week that at least one UCD gymnast has claimed a conference weekly honor, and the third consecutive time that two Aggies earned recognition.

Stamates, from Alamo, won the individual floor title in Friday’s dual at San Jose State (a season-high 9.875) then matched a career high with a 9.825 to tie for second on beam and help the Aggies to a 48.800 on that event, the fourth-highest score in program history.

Nogaki, from Orange, placed second (9.825) on vault as part of the Aggies’ 48.800 team score, good for fifth in school history.
