The Davis High boys tennis team made sure its season would go on for at least another week by beating Division II champ Rio Americano, 7-2, on Friday for the right to represent the Sac-Joaquin Section in the upcoming NorCal tournament.

The Blue Devils will join Jesuit — the squad that topped DHS in the D-I section finals — at NorCals on Friday and Saturday at Gold River Racquet Club in Natomas.

On Friday at Rio, the Devils cruised to straight-set wins in three singles matches and all three doubles encounters, with Dan Segedin earning the seventh victory when his opponent at No. 1 singles was forced to retire.

Davis’ Chase Kellison captured a 6-4, 6-4 decision at No. 4, Bob Li won 6-3-6-1 at No. 5 and David Wang dominated Raider No. 6 Bryan Vu, 7-0, 6-1.

In doubles, Blue Devil duos James Cole/Jasper Murphy (6-0, 6-4), Cooper Hosley/Alex Chen (6-1, 6-2) and Kyle Qi/Derek Malone (6-2, 6-1) each posted convincing wins.

The Blue Devils scored first in their North Coast Section quarterfinal match at San Ramon Valley High on Saturday night, but the second-seeded Wolves bounced back with five quick goals of their own and eventually eliminated DHS, 14-5.

Freshman Rowan Hart had the initial tally, racing around the back side of the goal and beating the SRV goalie to the upper right corner of the net. But the Wolves’ big run put them in control before the first quarter was over.

Kian Reno finally scored for DHS (15-6), cutting the lead to 5-2, but San Ramon got that one back to take a 6-2 lead into the second period, then added two more goals to take a commanding 8-2 advantage.

Before halftime, Devil Ryan Amesbury used brute strength to create a goal, Liam Neville’s bounce shot landed in the upper right corner of the cage and senior Mark Brummer added a tally. The Wolves, however, were on top 11-5 at intermission.

After the break, the Davis defense played tough, with the contributions from Connal Hart, Sam Gellen, Liam Condon, Connor Spann and Daniel Pardee holding SRV to just three second-half goals.

UCD track and field

Aggie women flooded the winner’s podium with eight individual titles on Saturday and the team captured its third straight Big West title, while the men won four events to take third at Woody Wilson Track.

The UCD women scored 141 points on Saturday to finish with 194 and beat Cal State Northridge (183.33). The Aggie men rebounded from an eighth-place showing last season to score 133 points, 106 on Saturday, and finish behind Long Beach State (218.5) and Cal Poly (144.5).

Standout sprinter Ashley Marshall led the UCD victory parade by winning the 100 (11.36 seconds) and 200 meters (23.85) for the second consecutive year. Additionally, Raquel Lambdin (4:23.39) captured the 1,500 for the second straight year, Cekarri Nixon won the 400 (53.55) and Shanie Landen (2:08.03) led a 1-2 Aggie finish in the 800.

Kellie Grigg (59.58) rallied down the stretch to take the 400 hurdles, Alycia Cridebring (17:11.32) led a dominant showing by the Aggies in the 5,000, and Catherine Li (41-1.50) set a school record while winning the triple jump.

Marcus Johnson was a part of two titles for the UCD men, opening his day by running a leg on the school’s first-ever Big West championship (40.82) in the 4×100 relay while also winning the 100 (10.36, wind-aided). Nathan Strum (1:50.20) won the 800 and Karl Moran had a big finish to take the 400 hurdles (52.13).

On Friday, freshman Holly Tokar win in the pole vault, Ben Parodi’s hammer throw victory and a dominating team performance in the women’s 10,000 were the Aggies highlights.

Tokar cleared 13-0.25 — the third-best mark in UCD history — to earn 10 points for the locals, while Pardi picked up six points by tossing the hammer 189-3, good for seventh in school history.

Sophomore Christine Hoffman’s 10,000-meter victory (36:30.70) led a group of four Aggies in the top eight finishers to score 20 UCD points.

UCD men’s golf

Led by Luke Vivolo’s 3-under 69 that helped him tie for seventh place, the Aggies had three players break par during the final round of the NCAA Auburn Regional on Saturday, giving them the second-best score of the day and a tie for ninth place in the final standings.

Senior Matt Hansen added a 70 for UCD, while redshirt freshman Nicolas Noya carded a 71 as the 11th-seeded Aggies finished with a 4-under 284 on Saturday. Only defending national champion and tournament winner Alabama had a better score (282) in the last round. It was UCD’s best score in the three-day regional by 16 shots.

“I’m very proud of our team,” said Aggie coach Cy Williams. “The guys played great, we just ran out of holes. UC Davis should be pretty proud of them. They were right there. If we would’ve had just a little bit better of a start on days 1 and 2, we would’ve made it through. I think it leaves us very excited going forward.”

Vivolo’s strong finish put him at 1-under 215, Hansen’s rally tied him for 28th at 7-over while Noya tied for 50th at 12-over. Senior Joshua Granger had his best round of the week, carding a 74 that left him tied for 66th at 21-over. Ben Corfee, from El Macero, posted a 79, tying for 44th at 11-over.

The Crimson Tide (853) won the tournament by a massive 22 strokes over Kennesaw State. Auburn (878), Virginia Tech (882) and Texas (884) were the remaining teams to qualify for the NCAA Finals.

UCD baseball

A day after dropping a narrow 2-1 outing, the Aggies were in similar territory on Saturday against visiting Hawaii. But UCD broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the seventh inning to post a 5-2 win at Dobbins Stadium.

Starter Spencer Koopmans went five strong innings, scattering five hits and striking out one, before handing the ball to freshman Justin Mullins, who got the win for the Aggies (22-28, 6-14 Big West Conference).

After Seth Batty’s third-inning sacrifice fly got UCD its first run, 10 Aggies took the plate in the decisive seventh.

With one out already recorded, Kevin Barker and pinch hitter Brian Ruhm hit back-to-back singles to begin the scoring run. A Hawaii error then loaded the bases for Tino Lipson, who blasted a sac fly to center. Tanner Bily followed with a two-run double and Steven Patterson added an RBI single in the frame to make it 5-1.

On Friday, Harry Stanwyck was the tough-luck loser as he pitched his second career complete game, allowing just seven hits and the two runs while striking out three. Patterson was 3-for-4 including a first-inning RBI singe.

The two teams finish the series with a 1 p.m. game Sunday.

DHS field hockey

The Blue Devil program invites new and current players to attend an informational meeting about the upcoming fall season on Monday.

At the 6 p.m. get-together at The Cage, players will learn, among other things, about a DHS/MPG Inc field hockey and conditioning camp set for June 25 through July 24. The camp will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7-10 a.m., and all ages and skill levels are welcome.

For more information about the meeting or the camp, contact coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins at sandie@marottiperformancegroup.com.

Football/cheer camp

The Top Gun/Line Tough Football Camp — designed to teach noncontact skills through age-appropriate drills — is set for May 31 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) at Brown Stadium.

Targeting kids ages 10-14 (fifth through eighth grades), the potential Blue Devil football players will be grouped by age and perceived abilities, says new DHS varsity coach John Wiley.

Instruction will come from the Devil coaching staff and players. Cost is $25 and players should wear shorts, a T-shirt, socks, cleats or tennis shoes and bring a water bottle or sports drink.

If registered by Tuesday, attendees are guaranteed a camp T-shirt. The first “non-preregistered” kids also get shirts, according to Wiley.

The Davis Junior Blue Devil cheer coaches will provide instruction for interested cheerleaders and the cost also is $25.

For clinic forms and more information, visit www.davishighfootball.org or www.juniorbluedevils.org.

The clinic runs from 1 to 3 p.m. and is open to boys and girls in grade one through seven, who should wear comfortable clothing and bring water. The cost of $25 includes a regulation lacrosse stick and game ball.

All participants must pre-register at www.davislax.org — click on the “Register Online” tab to get started. More information also is available on the web site.

AquaStarz swimming

The Davis AquaStarz synchronized swimming club is offering a junior class — for kids ages 5 to 10 — beginning June 17 and a free “Try It” class for interested swimmers on June 8.

There is no need to register for the Try It class, which runs from 2 to 3 p.m. at Swim America, 2121 Second St.
