Sports briefs: DHS boys get a win before clash with Jesuit

ELK GROVE — Even with a huge rivalry match against Jesuit looming on Saturday, the Davis High boys soccer team didn’t look past Monterey Trail on Thursday.

Instead, the Blue Devils (9-3-3, 3-0-1 Delta Valley Conference) played well in all phases of the game on their way to a 1-0 win over the Mustangs.

Coach Alex Park said DHS proved it is set to take on the powerful Marauders, who come into the Saturday showdown with a 16-0-3 record.

“We played a good team and we played well,” Park said. “Hopefully we’ll have a good practice (Friday) and be ready for Jesuit.”

Against Monterey Trail, the Devil defense was relentless and junior midfielder D.J. Villegas had his way with the Mustang defenders, including on the Davis scoring play when he assisted sophomore Jovanni Morales.

“The team defended really well as a whole, the goalies and the (rest of the) defense had great really great games,” Park said, adding, “D.J. had the game of his life. He was doing moves where even the other team would stop and say ‘wow.’

“Hopefully he can play the same way against Jesuit.”

Saturday’s match is at Capital Christian Stadium and begins at 8 p.m.

After leaving Laguna Creek in the dust, 25-18, 25-12, 25-18, on Thursday in Elk Grove the Blue Devils still haven’t dropped a game in starting 3-0 in Delta Valley Conference play.

DHS (15-8) got strong performances from several juniors, as Maya Gilardi, Kinsey Nelson and Evelyn Brady — a transfer student playing just her third official match — all earned praise from Devil coach Julie Crawford.

“We did a lot of things well (Thursday),” Crawford added. “We got on some really good serving runs to give us good strings of momentum.”

The easy win also allowed the locals to work on picking up the pace on offense, which will be important with two key conference matches coming up next week. Monterey Trail is at The Cage Tuesday for a 6 p.m. showdown before Davis heads to Elk Grove on Thursday.

“We have two big ones next week,” Crawford said. “We can’t play the way we have in the past few matches and beat those teams, we have to have more strategy behind what we do. We’ll make our practices specific to beating each opponent.”

Davis Aquatic Masters

The Davis Aquatic Masters team is recruiting new members ages 18 and over who are interested in swimming in a coached workout environment. With 650 members, the local club is the second-largest masters swim team in the country.

DAM offers 10 one-hour workouts daily, two on Saturday and six additional hours of open swim on the weekend — all but one at the heated Civic Center Pool at Russell Boulevard and B Street. Workout participants are grouped by ability and, while the majority of DAM members swim for health and fitness, pool and open-water competitions are available.

Instruction comes from head coach Stu Kahn, who was voted USMS Swim Coach of the Year in 2012, along with his wife Mary and three other part-time coaches.

For swimmers who want to check out the club, DAM is offering the first three workouts for free. Parking and dressing room and shower facilities are also available.
