From page B8 | December 19, 2012 |

Looking for a good, timed workout, while getting a chance to catch up with some familiar faces?

UC Davis student Drew Petersen — an accomplished track and cross-country Blue Devil who graduated in 2009 — has organized what has become known as the annual Alumni Mile, which will be run at 11 a.m. Saturday at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium at DHS.

“This year, we are opening it up to everyone and not just alumni,” Petersen explained.

For more information, the distance runner can be reached at acpetersen@ucdavis.edu.

DHS water polo alumni game

Christi Raycraft, Heather West, Dakota Mohr, Elsie Fullerton, Haley Cameron, Keelia Houston … the storied names in Davis High girls water polo history flow off the tongue.

And come Saturday, a reunion of some of these players who helped the Blue Devils earn 10 Sac-Joaquin Section titles will take place at Arroyo Pool at noon in what DHS head girls coach Doug Wright is calling an alumni game.

“We are inviting former players and current players alike to come out and play … celebrate in a holiday reunion of sorts,” Wright explained.

Hall of Fame closed for holidays

Taking a break to allow staff and volunteers enjoy the holidays, the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame has suspended daily operation until after Jan. 1.

Hall Board President Anthony Costello says the facility will reopen sometime right after the first of the year. Hours and days of operation will be announced.

Yolo Post 77

American Legion Post 77 will host its annual crab and prawn feed on Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

The event is designed to provide support for American Legion baseball as well as other youth sports.

The dinner costs $40 and will begin at 7:30 p.m. following a no-host social hour that starts at 6 p.m.

To buy tickets or get more information on the event, including being involved in the fundraising, call the American Legion club room at 530-662-9772 between 1 and 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

DHS cheer clinic

Davis High cheerleaders will conduct Cheer Clinic 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, Jan. 27, at DHS’ South Gym.

Hopefuls ages 6 to 13 are invited to learn cheers, jumps, tumbling and dance from the award-winning Blue Devil cheerleaders and their coaches.

Cost for the session is $40 in advance and $45 at the event. The fee includes a T-shirt, small group instruction by age, snacks and beverages, and a free ticket to the Feb. 1 DHS boys basketball game, which is Break the Record Night. Clinic participants also will have a chance to perform on the court that night with the Devil cheerleaders.

To learn more and reserve a spot, contact Megan Hupe at 530-753-0424 or meganhupe@gmail.com.
