Sports briefs: DHS boys play Ponderosa volleyballers tough

From page B8 | March 19, 2014 |

It wasn’t a win, but Davis High boys volleyball coach Jordon Friend saw a lot he liked about the Blue Devils’ performance on Tuesday at Ponderosa.

Facing one of the stronger squads in the area, DHS dropped the first game, 25-9, but immediately regained its composure and played tough during 25-21 and 26-24 losses in the final two sets.

“It was really good to see us put up a good fight against a really good team,” Friend said after his team fell to 5-2. “I think they caught us off guard a little at first, but we played really hard the rest of the night and did a lot of really good things. Sometimes you play well and it just comes against a really strong opponent.”

Senior Andre Foster and sophomore Nick Simons continued their strong play to lead the Devil offense as Foster finished with seven kills and a hitting percentage of .400.

Davis juniors Dominic Fannijiang and Cliff Tsai also earned praise from the coach.

“Dominic did a good job running the offense and played good defense. He really gave us a presence out there,” Friend said. “Cliff came in and played really well, he had some key blocks in the last game.”

Local fans can get a glimpse of the Blue Devils on Wednesday when Roseville comes to The Cage for a 5:30 p.m. match.

UCD gymnastics

Aggie senior Anna Shumaker has won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week for the third straight time and the fourth time this season.

The UCD co-captain from Alameda totaled a 39.250 in the all-around to place second in Saturday’s road dual meet at California.

Along the way, Shumaker matched her season best of 9.825 on vault and tied her career high of 9.85 on bars, where she helped the Aggies score a 49.025, good for fourth in school history.

Shumaker, who leads the MPSF with a conference-record 39.175 RQS, will compete next when UCD hosts the league championships on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Athletes in grade 7-12 planning on participating on junior high or Blue Devil sports teams during the 2014-15 school year can take their required physicals on Saturday, June 7, at Sutter Family Medicine, 2030 Sutter Place from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
