Sports briefs: DHS badminton squad improves to 2-0

From page B2 | March 08, 2013 |

After showing it could win at home by beating Will C. Wood on Monday, the Davis High badminton team got a road victory on Wednesday, taking down host Armijo, 9-6.

For the Blue Devils, it was a match that was won because of depth, both in singles and doubles competition.

After seeing its top three players lose, DHS got wins in four of the next five matchups, including Michelle Higuera’s 21-18, 12-21, 21-17 marathon victory. Other Devil singles triumphs came courtesy of Esther Wu, Yizing Chen and Siruo Zhang, who also survived a three-set ordeal.

The story was similar in doubles play, as the Indians won the top two matches but Davis swept the other five.

Higuera teamed with Audrey Ashdown for a straight-set victory, a feat that was matched by Emma Knoesen and Hana McHale. Wu and Anny Linda Li went three sets to get their win and Blue Devil duos Chen/Robin Chang and Zhang/Van Hsieh also prevailed.

Macy to speak at Hall

Learn how the bicycle helped women enter the workplace and take their rightful place in politics and the economy, and helped the 19th-century United States move from a snail’s pace to the most forward-thinking land on Earth when author Sue Macy speaks in Davis on Sunday.

Macy’s book “Wheels of Change” focused on how the evolution of the bicycle coincided with the evolution of America.

She will talk at 2 p.m. at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame (Third and B streets) as part of the shrine’s ongoing Tireside Chat series.

A $5 donation is suggested and door open at 1:30 p.m.

Visit www.usbhof.org for more information about Macy’s program and the Hall of Fame.
