Sports briefs: DHS boys crush Cards on the court

From page B8 | April 25, 2014 |

A day after cruising past the Cardinals in Davis, the Blue Devil boys tennis team traveled to Laguna Creek and rolled to a 9-0 victory.

With the win, DHS closed out Delta Valley Conference play with an 8-0 record, marking the 12th consecutive season it has completed its league schedule without a loss.

Three of the Devils’ Thursday triumphs came by perfect 6-0 6-0 scores, including wins by Victor Li (No. 4 singles) and Jaspar Murphy (No. 5). The local No. 3 doubles squad — made up of Scott Lucio and Derek Malone — also performed the feat.

Teaming up at No. 2 doubles, Davis’ Kyle Qi and James Cole posted a 6-0, 6-1 victory.

The other Blue Devil wins all came in straight sets as Dan Segedin, Chase Kellison and Bob Li swept the top three singles matches, Yoshi Wainwright captured a 6-2, 6-0 decision at No. 6 and Jeff Yin/Jacob Woodard got by LCHS’ No. 1 duo.

Next week, DHS hosts the DVC singles and doubles championships on Monday and Wednesday.

UCD men’s tennis

In a match that was closer than the score makes it appear, the fourth-seeded Aggies advanced to the semifinals of the Big West Conference tournament with a 4-0 win over No. 5 UC Irvine in a first-round contest at Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

When UCD (14-10) faced top-seeded Hawaii on Friday, it will be just the second time the program has played past the first round of this event.

After trailing for most of the doubles portion of Thursday’s match, the Aggies found their way back to claim the point. UCD’s two wins came by tiebreaker as teams of Alec Adamson/Adam Levie and Brett Bacharach/Adam Luba each prevailed.

Singles victories came from No. 3 Kyle Miller (6-1, 6-2), No. 6 Bryce McKelvie (6-0, 6-4) and No. 2 James Wade. The freshman Wade came out of a marathon match with the 6-1, 6-7 (6), 6-4, win.

Watney at Zurich Classic

Playing in the first round of the Zurich Classic, a tournament at which he posted his first PGA Tour victory in 2007, DHS graduate Nick Watney shot a 3-under 69 on Thursday.

After bogeying the par-4 first hole, the former Blue Devil came back to birdie No. 4, No. 7, No. 9 and No. 10. Another bogey on No. 11 was balanced out by a birdie on the 15th hole.

Entering the second round, Watney was seven strokes behind leader Ben Martin, who shot a course-record 62 at TPC Louisiana.

Cats fall to El Paso

In their first game ever against the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Sacramento River Cats were defeated, 5-1, at Raley Field on Thursday night.

Rico Noel stole four bases for El Paso, helping the visitors take a 3-0 lead before the Cats got their run in the bottom of the sixth.

With Sacramento designated hitter Kent Mattes on third, shortstop Andy Parino beat out an infield single to bring Mattes home and make it 3-1. Parino, who was making his 2014 River Cats debut, finished 2-for-3 with a walk.

The two teams return to Raley Field Friday for a 7:05 p.m. matchup.
