Sports briefs: DHS golfers continue their DVC domination

Davis High’s boys golfers have been getting better as the season has gone on, with Monday’s outing topping them all in terms of individual performances.

At the third Delta Valley Conference tournament of the spring, contested on the Haggin Oaks Arcade Course, the Blue Devils swept the top five places on their way to a convincing team win.

DHS’ Preston Walchli earned medalist honors for the third consecutive week with his 74, senior Chase Dossa was second at 76 and Michael Chen, Patrick Cajandig and Cyrrus Espino finished in a three-way tie for third. They each carded 79′s.

“Preston just keeps rolling,” Devil coach Karl Ronning said of the sophomore who is now a heavy favorite for DVC golfer of the year. “Chase had (a great 76). He played the last six holes at 3-under.”

It all added up to a winning score of 387 as the locals trounced second-place Franklin (436) and No. 3 Elk Grove (452).

“I’m just so proud of how these kids accept the challenges and know what they need to do,” Ronning said. “It’s been really rewarding so far.

“We’re still moving forward and the kids are convinced that we still haven’t put up our best score.”

The final conference tournament of the season is set for Tuesday, April 30 at the challenging Reserve course in Stockton. One week later, the Blue Devils host the Division I North playoffs at Wildhorse.

Locals in the MLS

The two former Davis residents now playing in the MLS — Adam Jahn of San Jose and Jalil Anibaba of Chicago — each made big contributions over the weekend.

Jahn, a rookie forward who lived in El Macero while prepping at Jesuit, scored in the 92nd minute to rally the Earthquakes to a 1-1 draw against Portland at a sold out Buck Shaw Stadium on Sunday. Jahn actually began the play by flicking a header into the mix in front of the goal, where teammate Nana Attakora got his foot to the ball and centered a pass to Chris Wondolowski. The reigning MLS Most Valuable Player then laid the ball off for Jahn, who blasted his shot past Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

One day earlier, former DHS star Anibaba had an assist on the only goal of the Fire’s 1-0 victory over Columbus. Anibaba’s long throw-in set up Jeff Larentowicz’s tally in the final minutes of the Saturday contest.

DHS football

Blue Devil football coach Steve Smyte is visiting local junior high schools this week to give young athletes information about playing on the program’s junior varsity or freshman squads this fall. After spending Monday at Holmes, Smyte will be at Emerson and DaVinci on Thursday for a noon meeting in Room Rc-1.

There will be a lunch meeting at Da Vinci SHS on Friday at the Library Presentation Room, then Smyte will be at Harper on Tuesday, April 30, for a 12:05 event in Room J57.

These meetings will get the ball rolling before a program get-together on Thursday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m. This mandatory preseason parent/player meeting is for those interested in playing frosh, JV and varsity football for DHS in 2013 and will be held at the Davis High library. Discussions will include responsibilities of the players; upcoming mandatory dates of attendance; spring football; summer events like the Sierra Football Camp; new CIF eligibility rules; medical/physical forms; the Champions Camp as well as Lift-A-thon and other fundraisers.

Players who can’t attend should contact Smyte at ssmyte@djusd.net.

One week after that meeting — on Saturday, May 11 — is the Top Gun/Line Tuff football camp for players and interested participants ages 10 to 15. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The event will feature position-specific instruction from the Blue Devil coaching staff as well as special guest Bob Biggs, the legendary former UC Davis mentor.

Later in the summer, Smyte and his staff hosts the DHS Champions Speed/Agility and Strength Camp, and applications are being accepted now. The camp is open to athletes in fifth through 12th grades and there are five week-long sessions beginning June 10. Athletes can choose to participate in one or all of the sessions with a cost of $25 a week or $100 for all five sessions.For more information, email coach Smyte or check out brochures at the junior high offices.

AYSO soccer

Davis AYSO is hosting two Early Bird Discount registration events this week at the organization’s building at Community Park behind the Yolo County Library.

Families with children born between Aug. 1, 1994 and July 31, 2009 can pay a discounted registration fee on Tuesday and Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the AYSO building, as well as from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Davis Farmer’s Market.
