Sports briefs: DHS net squad serves up a victory

By
From page B8 | March 05, 2014 |

Freshman Ron Chandi’s impressive six-point service run closed out the final game as the Davis High boys volleyball got its second straight victory to open the season, this time winning at Yuba City.

The Blue Devils jumped all over the Honkers in the first game, rolling to a 25-9 win, but the hosts bounced back to keep it close the rest of the way. Yuba City even won Game 2 by a 25-23 margin before DHS captured the next two, 25-23, 26-24.

“We came out really strong,” said Devil coach Jordon Friend. “Then they kind of gave us a scare, but we really did a good job of battling.”

Davis trailed 24-20 before Chandi’s match-clinching spurt, which was a fitting way to end it since the locals had served well all night.

Other highlights for the Blue Devils came from senior Andre Foster, who led the offense with 13 kills, and Mike Basso, a junior who paced the defense with 26 digs.

The match was the first of three in as many days for DHS as the Devils now come home to face Chico (Wednesday) and McClatchy (Thursday). Both matches start at 6 p.m.

“We are excited for all of the court time,” Friend said. “It’s really good for us to get all these reps.”

Former Devil gets award

After winning the Delta Valley Conference MVP award in her senior season at DHS, Ashleigh Vandenbrink is picking up more hardware in college.

Vandenbrink was named the Cascade Collegiate Conference Freshman of the Year after helping her Oregon Tech squad go 28-5 and win the league title.

The former Blue Devil led the NAIA Division II squad in 3-point shooting (39.1 percent) and was fourth in the CCC in that category while averaging 9.2 points and three rebounds a night with 33 assists.

The Owls open play in the NAIA D-II Tournament on March 12.

Mad Cows Triathlon

The Mad Cows Triathlon Team will hold their 2014 season kickoff meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Round Table Pizza, 2151 Cowell Blvd. in South Davis.

The group will discuss the many changes planned for the team this year, including new sponsors, the Mad Cow Challenge, learning seminars and social opportunities.

Anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend the meeting for more information.
