Sports briefs: DHS gets huge performances in boys golf, lacrosse

As coach Karl Ronning watched his 12 Davis High boys golfers alternately push and support each other throughout the season, he could see the Blue Devils improving event by event.

But even Ronning couldn’t have predicted what DHS did in Delta Valley Conference competition, which concluded with its fourth tournament of the season on Tuesday at The Reserve in Stockton.

The Devils won their seventh consecutive league title, beating second-place Franklin, but it was the individual performances that were even more incredible …

Not only did sophomore Preston Walchli capture DVC Player of the Year honors by taking first place for the fourth straight league event, but the entire all-conference squad was made up of his Davis teammates.

“Its something that has never happened before and I don’t know if it will ever happen again,” Ronning said. “I’m so proud of the guys, not just the six (all-DVC honorees) but the other six guys on the team.

“We had six different lineups in the first six (nonconference) tournaments this season and through all of the inter-competition, this lineup was forged.”

The all-star lineup was made up of Walchli (84 in Tuesday’s windy conditions), Patrick Cajandig (86 which was good for second place), Chase Dossa (87, third), Michael Chen (88, fifth), Spencer Salk (90, sixth) and Cyrrus Espino (94). Espino’s score wasn’t even counted, but would have put him in 10th place Tuesday.

With the Blue Devils set to host the Division I North playoff tournament on Monday at Wildhorse, Ronning is taking time to savor his team’s great regular season:

“The postseason is nice but I’ve always pointed toward what you do in league (as being most important). That is what you can do over the long run, while in the postseason you can have a great day and someone else can beat you because they happen to have a great day.”

There was more history made on Tuesday as Grant sophomore Preston Shepherd became the first Pacer ever to qualify for Divisionals.

DHS boys lacrosse

Mikie Schlosser tied the match with a goal in the final seconds of the third period, the Blue Devil defense didn’t allow a goal through the fourth quarter and overtime and Mark Bruemmer’s tally in the extra period lifted DHS to an exciting 6-5 victory over Jesuit on Tuesday at Mather Field.

Schlosser, the talented senior, finished with a hat trick, including the game’s first tally, as the Devils went ahead 3-0 in the opening period. Other goals in the quarter came from Ryan Amesbury and Kian Reno, while the Davis defense got key plays from several different players.

There was a nifty save from goalie Will McPherson, a nice steal by Amesbury and courageous efforts by Yuto Okamoto and Kelby Spore, who took big hits and kept on ticking.

The Marauders finally broke through in the second quarter, scoring three goals, but Rudy Buhlman’s steal and pass ahead set up Schlosser, who tallied to kept the locals up 4-3 at intermission.

After the break, Jesuit kept the pressure on, battling through the strong defense of Bulhman and Sam Gellen to score twice and take a 5-4 advantage. It didn’t last, however, as Spore made an interception and the ball ended up with Schlosser for the game-tying goal.

It was all defense in the fourth as steals from Willie Hawkins and Liam Neville were key and McPherson made two huge stops in the final seconds to send the game into sudden-death overtime.

McPherson had two more saves in the extra session to allow Sam Eaton to send a pass to Bruemmer, who crossed in front of the Jesiut goal and shot back over his shoulder for the game-winner.

The excitement will continue on Friday as the Blue Devils return to Ron & Mary Brown Stadium to host Granite Bay. Before the 7:30 p.m. contest begins, DHS will honor its graduating players with a Senior Night celebration.

DHS softball

Stephanie Cello was one of five Blue Devils with at least three RBIs in Monday’s 22-1 victory at Grant.

And because it’s the type of performance she has been putting up all season, the DHS senior later learned that she was selected to play in this year’s Optimist All-Star Game set for May 28 at Bradshaw Christian High.

But Cello wasn’t the only Devil pounding the ball on Monday, as Emily Ginn was an impressive 4-for-5 with two doubles, a triple and five RBIs.

With Sarah Allen-Sutter (complete game, five strikeouts) pitching well for Davis, the game was actually tied at 1-1 after two innings. But the locals took control with 10 runs in the top of the third and finished strong with eight more in the fifth and final frame.

Other Blue Devil hitting stars included Sydney Rosenblum (3-for-5, double, three RBIs), Kaitlyn Lagattuta (4-for-4, two doubles, three RBIs) and Catherine Slabaugh (3-for-4). Allen-Sutter also helped her own cause with three hits, including a home run, and four runs batted in.

UCD men’s golf

El Macero resident Ben Corfee shot a 1-under 71 on Tuesday and Matt Hansen added a 72 but the Aggies came up just short in the final round to finish third at the Big West Championship tournament.

Playing at the Country Club at Soboba Springs, UCD was trying to capture its third consecutive league title.

The Aggies took the lead midway through the final round and were within one to three strokes most of the rest of the way before finishing at 26-over 890. Pacific won the Big West crown by beating Cal State Fullerton in a playoff.

The locals were 4-over on the last hole while the Tigers and Titans were each even. The Aggies finished 10-over for the day.

UCD, ranked 70th in the most recent Golfstat rankings, still has hope for a berth in the NCAA Regionals. The 81-team field will be announced next week.

Hansen and Corfee each had solid final rounds for the Aggies, tying for fifth and 11th, respectively, in the individual standings. Senior Tyler Raber, a DHS graduate, shot a 77 and was 24th, Jonny Baxter carded a 78 and tied for 13th and Matt Seramin also posted a 78, tying for 25th.

UCD baseball

The Aggies eclipsed the 10-hit mark for the sixth time in the last seven games and snapped a four-game losing streak with an 11-9 victory over visiting Santa Clara in a nonconference game on Tuesday at Dobbins Stadium.

Reliever Max Cordy (5-5) picked up the win for UCD (16-26). The Aggies and Broncos (10-32) were tied at 8-8 before UCD, aided by two Santa Clara errors, scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth.

Steven Patterson was 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs while Spencer Brann finished 3-for-3 with two runs scored. All but one player in the lineup for the Aggies had at least one hit.
