Sports briefs: DHS girls wrestle well at Lady Eagle Invite

From page B8 | February 04, 2014 |

While the Davis High varsity boys enjoyed a rare weekend off, the Blue Devil girls traveled to Del Oro to participate in the Lady Eagle Invite on Saturday.

With sophomore Sasha Bohatch-Garcia out because of injury, junior Lisa Ghiglieri (116 pounds) and sophomore Sienna Martinez (131) were the lone female wrestlers to represent DHS.

And they represented well as Martinez finished 2-3, losing one match by a single point, while Ghiglieri finished 1-2.

“When you work on something the entire week and you’re able to go out there and use it in a match, we’re pretty happy about that,” Devil coach Ty Brown said of Ghiglieri’s improved pinning skills. “It was great to see her get out there in competition and put it to use and have some success with it.”

On Wednesday, the rest of the Davis squad (2-2 Delta Valley Conference) closes out league play at Elk Grove (4-0, DVC).

“(Elk Grove) beat Franklin last week,” Brown said. “They’re looking to wrap up the league championship this week. We’re trying to stop that. It’s going to be a great opportunity and challenge and we’re up for it.”

One thing that could help the locals pull that off is the return to health of Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez, Marvin Grant and Bailey Murray, who are all projected to wrestle after missing last week’s loss at Monterey Trail.

“The flu thing has just been bad,” Brown said of the ailment that kept out Grant and Murray. “It’s been bad for everyone. Every coach I’ve talked to has had guys missing time due to the flu. Our biggest thing this week is making sure we keep every guy healthy and get our guys ready to rock and roll Wednesday.”

The DHS boys are off again this weekend, but the Blue Devil girls will head to the Sac-Joaquin Northern Regional tournament. If any of the girls finish in the top four of their weight class, they will move on to the Girls’ State Tournament in Leedmore.

DHS cross country

Following what was arguably the best season in program history, Blue Devil harriers were prominently featured on the Sac-Joaquin Section All-Star teams, which were announced this week.

DHS sophomore Fiona O’Keeffe, the Division I state champion with her 16:58 at the CIF finals after defending her individual section title, was a no-brainer for Girls Runner of the Year.

O’Keeffe was joined on the first team by freshman Sofia Castiglioni, whose third-place finish in the SJS championships and 15th-place mark at the state meet also was good enough for a berth on the All-Freshman squad.

Devil juniors Giulia McIsaac (seventh at the section meet) and Maggie McManis (10th at sections), earned spots on the second and third teams, respectively, and Davis’ Abigail Fisk took an All-Freshman nod.

For the Blue Devil boys, junior Brian Song’s third-place finish at the SJS title meet and 20th-place time at the CIF finals, put him on the first team, where he was joined by senior Jasper Laca (fourth at sections).

DHS field hockey

Five Blue Devil seniors — Elizabeth Leshuk, Tara Mullen, Sara Pinto, Kelly Ragsdale and Natalie Silver — were honored recently when the NFHCA High School National Academic Squad was announced.

Players were recognized if they achieved a minimum cumulative, unweighted GPA of 3.5 out of 4.0 or the equivalent through the first quarter of the 2013-14 school year.

New in 2013, the National Academic Squad program honored players who had at least a 3.9 GPA as Scholars of Distinction, an accolade earned by DHS’ Silver.
