Sports briefs: DHS’ Cello and Chambers are all-stars

From page B8 | May 26, 2013 |

A pair of Davis High senior standouts — softball slugger Stephanie Cello and volleyball hitter Lyndsay Chambers — were selected to play in Optimist All-Star Games this week at Capital Christian High.

Cello, who helped the Blue Devils to the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs this spring, will play for the south squad in the 36th annual Optimist Softball contest on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Chambers, the Delta Valley Conference MVP who led DHS to the second round of the section tournament and is headed to UCLA in the fall, suits up for the 29th annual Optimist volleyball game on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Tickets for each outing are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for students and $3 for kids under 12.

Yolo Post 77

Field manager Matt Castles told The Enterprise on Thursday that the Yolo Post 77 pitching staff is going to be strong in 2013. If the first two games of the season — during which the locals allowed a total of four hits in 14 innings — are any indication, Castles was right.

Yolo opened the American Legion season with two wins on Saturday at the District 6 Memorial Day Tournament, beating Manhart, 2-1, then shutting out Fair Oaks, 5-0.

Post 77 starter Thomas Galart held Manhart scoreless for four and his team provided just enough offense in the seven-inning win.

Nico Sandoval knocked in a run for Yolo as he, Adam Castelan, Robert Dougherty and Joe Murray, a DHS standout this spring, had hits. Zach Aukes closed out the game on the mound, giving up one run but finishing the two-hitter. Hayden Duer, a Davis High senior, caught all seven innings.

In the afternoon matchup, Dougherty teamed with reliever Carlos Enriquez on a two-hit shutout.

Single runs in the first and second innings would have been enough for Post 77, but the locals added three in the top of the seventh for insurance.

Kiki Gonzalez had a hit and two RBIs for Yolo, catcher Mike Secrist went 2-for-4 and Bobby Young, who played well for the Blue Devils this spring, added a base knock.
