From page B8 | February 05, 2014 |

UC Davis junior Tiana Montell captured Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week honors on Tuesday, while sophomore Stephanie Stamates earned Specialist of the Week.

It’s the first such honor for each Aggie, but the fifth and sixth weekly awards for the UCD team already this season.

Montell, from Hilo, Hawaii, used a career-high 39.050 to capture the individual all-around at Friday’s Causeway Cup dual meet with Sacramento State. She opened with a 9.775 on vault, tied a personal-best with a 9.725 on bars, tallied a season-high 9.800 on beam, then capped her meet with a 9.750 on floor. Montell also became just the third gymnast in program history to hit the 39-point barrier in back-to-back meets, joining Anna Shumaker and Katie Yamamura.

Stamates, originally from Alamo, scored career highs of 9.800 on vault and 9.825 on beam before matching her season-best of 9.850 to win the floor exercise title against the Hornets.

At the meet ,Montell and Stamates helped the Aggies break a six-day-old program record on beam (49.125) and compile the No. 3 overall score in school history (195.500).

DHS football meeting

New Davis High football coach John Wiley will lay out plans for the upcoming year at a player-parents meeting on Monday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. in the DHS Library.

Wiley will introduce his coaching staff, talk about his philosophy on the program and what it takes to be a winner.

“This will be a great opportunity to get to know him and ask any questions you might have,” says DHS Football Backers President Rich Riffle. “We will introduce new board members and give you the latest on the upcoming crab feed.”

Hot Shots hoops

The Davis Hot Shots, a local youth basketball club, will hold tryouts this month for boys teams from fifth grade to varsity-level.

Players interested in playing for the fifth/sixth-grade squad or the seventh/eighth-grade team should come to a tryout on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

Then, tryouts for the Hots Shots’ ninth-grade, JV and varsity squads are set for Wednesday, Feb. 19, and Thursday, Feb. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Harper.

Descalso stays with Cards

Avoiding arbitration, St. Louis Cardinal infielder Daniel Descalso agreed to a $1.29 million one-year contract late last month.

The former UC Davis standout hit .238 in 123 games for the 2013 National League champions. He made $511,000 last season.

He is 3-for-13 in two World Series and has hit .243 with 10 homers and 101 RBI in his four-year utility MLB career.

The San Carlos native graduated from UCD in 2007.
