A close loss in the opener sent the Davis High girls water polo team into the bottom half of the St. Francis of Mountain View tournament. But with the way the Blue Devils rolled to three straight wins after that, observers wondered what might have been if the ball had bounced a different way in that one-goal loss.

After falling 6-5 to Las Lomas early Friday, DHS beat St. Ignatius, 7-1, later that day, then beat Los Altos (11-1) and Leland (13-10) on Saturday to finish ninth at the tourney and improve to 4-1 on the season.

“It was a one-goal game most of the way (against Las Lomas) … we just didn’t hit enough shots and their goalie played well,” said Devil coach Doug Wright. “It was one of those games where, if we played 10 times, we win six or seven of them.

“We did well to bounce back from the loss. We showed a lot of character and got better with each game.”

Throughout the tournament, Davis got production from its big guns — Heather Johnson averaged a hat trick per game and finished with 12 goals, while Lauren Owens scored 10 — that was complemented by its deep supporting cast.

“I needed some girls to step up and what’s nice is a lot of them have,” Wright added.

Mara Dominguez and Alyssa Alvarez each scored five times over the weekend, Kendall Doten had two goals and single tallies came from Emme Van Vorhis and Kinsey VanDeynze.

Wright also praised the play of goalie Mattie Lilliedoll.

DHS cross country

Taking advantage of a day that featured perfect weather for running, the Blue Devils went to work at the Hornet Jamboree on Saturday at Granite Regional Park, winning both the girls and boys races.

Many of the DHS runners had their best times ever at the familiar local course while the top Devils posted times among the best at that site in program history, according to the Davis coaching staff.

Local sophomore Fiona O’Keeffe (17.36) dominated the girls race and, with second-place teammate Sofia Castiglioni (18:27.4) — a freshman — led the Blue Devils to a convincing victory. DHS had 18 points to finish ahead of the girls from Woodcreek (67) and Rocklin (103).

“It was incredible to watch, Fiona was so far ahead,” Devil assistant coach Tim Groth told The Enterprise. “Overall it was just a great day.”

With the jamboree format allowing Davis to enter more runners in the varsity race, the girls had five of the top eight finishers with O’Keeffe and Castiglioni followed by Sophie Meads (fourth), Maggie McManis (sixth) and Giulia McIsaac (eighth). Pooja Tripathi (11th), Claire Dicker (13th) and Jeanne-Marie McPherson (14th) finished close behind.

On the boys side, Jasper Laca’s third-place finish and DHS’ depth combined to score 55 points and edge Jesuit (72) and Del Campo (90).

Laca ran a blistering 15:42.8 to finish ahead of teammates Brian Song (ninth place), Nick Borowsky (15th) and Ben Roberts (16th).

“The guys ran really well,” Groth said. “Jasper’s time is one of the top three (times a Blue Devil) has run at this course.”
