Sports briefs: Devil swimmers speed past Elk Grove

By From page B8 | April 18, 2013

Coming off of a high-octane Tuesday meet at Granite Bay, the Davis High boys and girls swim team were right back in the pool on Wednesday, taking on Elk Grove at Wackford Pool.

Fatigue did not seem to be a factor as the Blue Devil boys posted a 124-48 win and the DHS girls beat the Herd, 113-45, with each local team taking first place in every race.

For the Devil boys, Tyler Ujifusa captured two individual victories (100 butterfly and 200 individual medley) then swam on the winning 200 freestyle and 200 medley relay teams. Garrett Fisk (100 free and 100 backstroke) also doubled and helped two relay squads prevail.

Other event winners, who also contributed to Davis relay triumphs, included Brad Nicholson (50 free), Andrew Block (200 free), Graham Fullerton (100 breaststroke), and Alonzo Cortes (500 free). Blue Devil Wyatt Millstone also picked up a victory as part of the 200 free relay squad.

The DHS girls saw three swimmers post two individual event wins: Julianna Chan took the 100 fly and the 100 breast, Kendall Doten captured the 100 back and the 200 IM and Kim Zhu was victorious in the 50 and 100 free races. The trio also did its part to help the Devils sweep the relay events.

Other Devil standouts were Alice Renaud, who prevailed in the 200 free, and Mara Dominguez, the 500 free winner. Additional Davis relay contributions came from Alyssa Alvarez and Emme Van Vorhis.

The Blue Devils played their easiest match of the season, at least by the set scores, in defeating host Laguna Creek in a Delta Valley Conference encounter on Wednesday.

DHS dropped just 10 singles games total in winning each match in straight sets, then crushed the Cardinals in three 6-0, 6-0 doubles decisions. The dominant Devil duos were made up of Phil Glazer and Sean Maroney at No. 1, Kenneth Chow and Bob Li at No. 2, and Sam Yoder teaming with Manraj Gill at No. 3.

Davis No. 3 singles player Isaac Zhang and Chris Chinn at No. 6 both added 6-0, 6-0 victories, while No. 1 Andrew Dumit, No. 2 Isaac Yee, No. 4 Sean Mishra and No. 5 Brandon Zhu also prevailed.

Picnic Day fundraiser

Hot dogs, hamburgers, refreshments, beer and fun things for the kids to do will be part of the annual festivities as Martha Bernauer, her husband Marc Hicks, Mary and Steve Swimley and the extended Bernauer and Swimley families host their fifth annual Picnic Day fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

This year the Saturday event will begin at 11 a.m. and run through the late afternoon at Lyon Real Estate, 401 Second St.

The event began as a fundraiser and cancer awareness outing on behalf of Mary and Steve Swimley’s daughter Samantha — a cancer survivor who now plays softball at Mayville State in North Dakota.
