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.

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

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.
