Sports briefs: DHS girls take fifth in water polo tourney

By
From page B4 | November 03, 2013 |

The Davis High girls water polo team and coach Doug Wright couldn’t have asked for much better in their final outing before Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs this weekend.

The sixth-seeded Blue Devils (22-6) finished fifth at the NorCal tournament, going 3-1 including wins over two teams — Miramonte and Clovis West — who had beaten DHS earlier this season.

“The goal is to win a section title so this weekend is about playing the best competition we can and getting better — and we did that,” Wright said. “It’s not so much about winning, its more about playing well because the teams in the top 8 (at NorCals) are better than the teams we will face at sections.”

On Friday, the Devils opened with an 8-4 win over Leland behind two goals each from Heather Johnson and Lauren Owens. Singles goals from Mara Dominguez, Haley Blackwell, Kendal Doten and Kinsey Van Deynze completed the balanced Davis attack.

The locals then played well despite suffering their only loss, 10-7, against St. Francis of Mountain View. Using four goals from Dominguez, the Blue Devils stayed within two goals for most of the second half.

On Saturday, wins over Miramonte, 10-9, and Clovis West, 6-4, were accomplished thanks to seven more goals from Johnson, three from Dominguez, two each from Owens and Stapleton and single tallies by Van Deynze and Alyssa Alvarez.

Wright also used both of his goalies, starter Mattie Lilliedoll and freshman backup Katrina Strum and said both played well.

DHS boys soccer

After going 15-4-3 in the regular season — which ended Tuesday — and winning a Delta Valley Conference championship with a 9-0-1 record, the Blue Devils learned Friday that they will be the fourth seed in the upcoming Sac-Joaquin Section tournament.

DHS reached the section semifinals last year, and will begin its 2013 playoff run with a Tuesday game against 13th-seed Napa. Kickoff at Yudin Field is set for 3 p.m.

The two teams met in early September on the same field, with Devil junior Raunak Manandhar scoring in the final seconds to give Davis a 2-1 victory.

Area juggernaut Jesuit earned the top seed in the section playoffs after going 23-0-3 overall and 10-0 to win the Delta River League. Pitman (19-4-3) is seeded second, Granite Bay — the team that knocked the Blue Devils from last year’s postseason —  is the third seed.

DHS tryouts

Workouts for the Davis High winter sports are getting under way this week with conditioning for the snowboard team, while basketball and wrestling tryouts also are coming soon.

DHS snowboard team conditioning begins Friday and continues Mondays and Friday from 6:15 to 7:30 a.m. For more information, contact coach Marcia Heller at dmheller4@gmail.com.

Athletes for all sports must have sports physicals and all forms completed, signed and returned to the DHS athletics department prior to the first day of tryouts.

In addition, all Blue Devil student-athletes must complete baseline computerized neurocognitive concussion testing program in order to participate in the athletic program. Testing is valid for two years. Athletes who completed baseline testing in 2012-13 do not need to retest until 2014-15.

Girls rugby meeting

Coming off a season that saw it take third in its division, the Davis girls’ rugby team is hoping for an expanded roster in 2014 and is now accepting registration.

Girls in grades nine through 12, who attend school in the Davis Joint Unified School District are eligible to be on the team and an information night for players and parents is set for Tuesday from 7 to 8 pm at the Davis High School Library.

Local girls who play on the team will be able to earn a varsity letter playing a sport that will be in the 2016 Olympic Games. There is no experience necessary to play and there is a spot on the team for everyone, regardless of prior athletic experience.

Boys rugby meeting

After a successful return to existence last season, the Davis High Rugby Club, a boys team, is gearing up for another big year.

New head coach Andy Malpass invites all interested players and their parents to learn about the team at a meeting on Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Davis High School library.

Competing in the Sacramento area, which is a national hot-bed for rugby, the local club will feature varsity and junior varsity squads, so players in grades nine through 12 are welcome.

Following a camp on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m., team training will start in December and run three evenings a week.

The Davis Rugby Football Club is a nonprofit corporation so interested locals are invited to donate scholarships to the program. To donate or for more informational about the club, contact Malpass at 530-309-5763 or andy@aj-construction.com.

Youth lacrosse night

In partnership with the UCD athletics department, the Davis Lacrosse Association is hosting a fun and free event at Aggie Stadium on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Boys and girls through eighth grade are invited to come out and watch an Aggie lacrosse practice, which will be followed by an autograph and question/answer session with the UCD squad.

This is a great chance for young players to see what elite lacrosse looks like and the Aggie women are excited to be positive female athletic role models for the youngsters.

Interested boys and girls are asked to register at www.davislax.org.
