The game was never in doubt on Thursday as the Davis High girls lacrosse team was clicking on all cylinders in a 15-7 win at Berkeley High.

Only a strong Yellow Jackets goalkeeper kept the Blue Devils (2-1) from getting a huge early lead, but eventually shots started falling and the rest was history.

“The offense was working well (Thursday),” DHS coach Jenn Morris reported. “We took a lot of shots, and pressured well through midfield to give ourselves second and third shot opportunities when needed.”

Senior standout Kylie Drexel led all scorers making all five of her shots and added two assists for the Devils. Her fellow senior captains Kelly Chuck and Kiki Tanaka — who also had an assist — each contributed a hat trick in the victory.

Other Davis offense came from sophomore Sarah Bloise (two goals), seniors Maia Polis (one goal) and Bailey Gary (one goal, one assist) and junior Lydia Gegan (one assist).

But it wasn’t just an offense performance as the locals were so strong on defense that Berkeley barely got any kind of attack going.

Morris said the key to the Blue Devil defense was senior Natalie Serdahl:

“(She) was an absolute standout. Natalie was always a step ahead of Berkeley reading the plays well and coming up with some huge stops.”

Defenders Monica LeFlore also played well, combining with Serdahl and juniors Liz Leshuk and Lauren Robinson to form a DHS wall.

“They really worked hard and were working well together,” Morris said. “That’s what it takes to win big games, and that is going to pay off for us coming into our match-up this Saturday against Amador Valley.”

The contest is set for 11 a.m. at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.

DHS badminton

The Blue Devils improved their record to 4-0 with a dominating week, beating Vacaville on Tuesday at home and winning at Vintage on Thursday without dropping a match in either outing.

In fact, in the 30 matches that made up DHS’ two 15-0 victories, only one even made it to a decisive third set.

Going 2-0 for the Devils this week in singles play were Debra Ouyang, Mo Xu, Maya Salcido White, Michelle Higuera, Emma Knoesen, Esther Wu, Yixing Chen and Siruo Wong.

Meanwhile, Davis doubles teams made up of Xu/Ouyang, Sanchita Raychaudhuri/Salcido White, Audrey Ashdown/Higuera, Hana McHale/Knoesen, Anny Linda Lu/Wu and Robin Chang/Chen won in straight sets both days.

The local No. 7 duo — Zhang and Van Hsieh — won easily, 21-5, 21-3 against Vintage, but got to play an extra set in a win over Vacaville. The Blue Devil pair captured that match 21-16, 16-21, 21-15.

UCD diving

Hanna Tears and Lucy Lafranchise both participated in the 3-meter preliminaries during the inaugural day of competition at the Zone E Diving Regional in Colorado Springs, Colo, and the Aggies finished No. 47 and No. 48 respectively.

Tears recorded a six-dive score of 205.15 and Lafranchise posted a 202.20.

Of the 18 competitors who posted the highest preliminary results, Arizona’s Samantha Pickens finished as the event’s No. 1 diver with her finals score of 708.45.

Both Aggie divers will return to Cadet Pool Friday morning to compete on the low board, preliminaries will start at 11 a.m.

Charity 5K

UCD is hosting its first 5K Stride for Aggie Pride, on Sunday, April 7, to raise money for scholarships and emergency funding for students in need.

All proceeds from the 3.1-mile run/walk event, which is being led by UCD students, will go toward student scholarships offered through ASUCD and awards offered through the We Are Aggie Pride student organization.

“UC Davis students and staff were motivated to start this new Aggie tradition, to find a fun way to raise funds for scholarships and UC Davis students in need,” said UCD student Artem Trotsyuk, who is the lead organizer of Stride for Aggie Pride and a student assistant to UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi. “Those who participate in this family-friendly event will enjoy some exercise, explore our beautiful campus and promote a good cause all at the same time.”

The race will begin at 9:30 a.m. on the West Quad and loop through campus. Race events will begin with group stretches at 9 a.m.

Live music and entertainment will be provided by The Afterglow — the only men’s a capella group on campus — Japanese Taiko Drum Ensemble, The Golden Turtle Lion Dance Association, a Nigerian dance group and others.

Campus departments, and local and regional businesses will have booths at the event and offer hands-on activities. Registered participants will be eligible for drawings for a wide range of prizes including a Kaplan academic prep course, San Francisco Giants and Sacramento Kings gear, Oakland A’s VIP tickets, campus fitness classes, iPods, UC Davis Stores gift cards, an Akasha Yoga gift certificate, Mondavi Center show tickets and more.
