Sports briefs: Devils shuffle Cards on the track and in the pool

With one eye on the much bigger Halden Invitational this weekend, the Davis High boys and girls track teams had to first take care of business against Laguna Creek in a Delta Valley Conference home meet on Wednesday. And the Blue Devils did just that.

The DHS girls posted a 109-11 victory at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, while the Devil boys sunk the Cardinals, 97-24.

The locals took the top spot — and often the first couple of places — in every individual event save for one girls race and two boys sprints.

Double winners for Davis were Rose Stephens (100 and 300 hurdles), Alexander McIntyre (100 and 200 meters), Kyle Clancy (110 hurdles and high jump), Kunwoo Hong (long jump and triple jump), Alicia Demaree (shot put and discus) and Nick Denton (shot put and discus).

Also on the track, Ian McKillap captured the 300 hurdles, while Sugal Sutter and Sophie Meads were victorious in the 1,600-meter races. Blue Devils Jeanne-Marie McPherson and Blake Croft (800-meter races), Ellie Eaton (girls 400) and Charlie Harris (3,200) also crossed the line in first place.

In field events, DHS saw Caitlin Mazzoleni win the high jump, Courtney Meyer and Spencer LaHaye capture the pole vault and Joseena John take first in the long jump. Additionally, Liz Lee posted a Devil victory in the triple jump.

Davis now gets set for the Halden, a challenging event for the athletes and a fun outing for Blue Devil fans. Action runs all day Saturday at Brown Stadium.

DHS swimming

Coming off of a Tuesday meet against Rio Americano — one that the Blue Devils had been looking ahead to for several weeks — the locals had to get right back into Arroyo Pool on Wednesday to face Laguna Creek.

Though the Cardinals weren’t exactly pushovers, the DHS boys (115-57) and girls (114-55) came away with victories for the second consecutive day.

The Devil girls saw their swimmers take first place in every event, including the 200 and 400 freestyle relays and the 200 medley relay. Kim Zhu (50 and 100 free) and Alice Renaud (200 free and 100 backstroke) paced Davis with two wins each, while the other individual events were captured by Juliana Chan (200 individual medley), Emme Van Vorhis (100 butterfly), Kendall Doten (500 free) and Alyssa Alvarez (100 breaststroke).

For the Blue Devil boys, who won 10 of 12 events including two of three relays, Connor Stapleton touched first in the 200 IM and the 100 breast. Single wins came from Garrett Fisk (200 free), Tyler Ujifusa (100 fly), Brad Nicholson (100 free), Alonzo Cortez (500 free) and Graham Fullerton, who went 1:03.08 to take first in the 100 back.

DHS boys tennis

Double-bagel victories by Blue Devil singles players Phil Glazer (at No. 3) and No. 4 Isaac Zhang highlighted DHS’ 9-0 Delta Valley Conference win at Franklin on Wednesday.

None of the other locals really got pushed in their matches as singles triumphs came from No. 1 Glenn Hull (6-1, 6-2), No. 2 Isaac Yee (6-1, 6-1), No. 5 Tris Dutta (6-1, 6-3) and No. 6 Louis Pak (6-3, 6-1).

The Devils also flexed their muscle in the doubles matches as the No. 1 squad of Dan Segedin and Chase Kellison defeated their Wildcat opponents, 6-3, 6-1. The other two DHS duos — Chris Chinn/Scott Lucio and Bruno Segedin/Kenneth Chow — lost just four games total in straight-set victories.

Home fans can see the brilliant Blue Devils on Friday as they host the Davis Invitational at the Community Park Tennis Complex. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with DHS facing De La Salle and Gunn.
