Sports briefs: DHS’ LoBuono-Gonzalez brothers come up big

Though the Davis High wrestling team dropped it Delta Valley Conference match at Franklin on Wednesday, between that outing and a tournament last weekend there were still several Blue Devil bright spots.

At Saturday’s Albany Invite, Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez took third place at 128 pounds, losing only when he was matched up with the eventual tournament champion from Reno in the semifinals.

DHS’ 197-pound standout Marvin Grant also wrestled well in Albany, winning one of his trademark four-overtime matches and ending up in fifth place. Another Devil, Connor Spann, made a successful debut at 147 pounds, finishing sixth.

“Adrian looked good and he’s starting to peak,” said Davis head coach Ty Brown. “Marvin is in great shape; he can go as long as it takes. Connor’s starting to put some things together.”

In Wednesday’s match at Franklin, Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez and freshman Tanner Carr each pinned their Wildcat opponent, while Ricardo Briseno captured a JV bout.

“We have to remain hungry and humble,” Brown concluded. “The stakes are higher as we approach postseason and we have to be ready for the intensity the postseason brings.”

UCD swimming

Junior Liliana Alvarez, who captured two individual events and helped the Aggies win a relay in their decisive victory over CS Bakersfield on Saturday, was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Swimmer of the Week.

Alvarez took down both breaststroke events, with her time of one minute, 4.80 seconds edging teammate Morgan Lee in a UCD sweep of the 100-yard race. She then dominated the field in the 200 breast, finishing in 2:22.57, more than seven seconds faster than her nearest competitor.

In addition, her split of 25.57 helped the Aggies win the 200 medley relay.

Alvarez is the second UCD swimmer to receive recognition from the MPSF this season, after junior Samantha Shellem received conference honors on Nov. 7 and Dec. 5.

The Aggies are back in action on Saturday in a double-dual road event against Fresno State and UC Santa Barbara.

DHS cheer clinic

Blue Devil cheerleaders will conduct Cheer Clinic 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday at DHS’ South Gym.

Hopefuls ages 6 to 13 are invited to learn cheers, jumps, tumbling and dance from the award-winning Devil cheerleaders and their coaches.

Cost for the session is $40 in advance and $45 at the event. The fee includes a T-shirt, small group instruction by age, snacks and beverages, and a free ticket to the Feb. 1 DHS boys basketball game, which is Break the Record Night. Clinic participants also will have a chance to perform on the court that night with the DHS cheerleaders.
