One week after Fiona O’Keeffe finished fifth at the CIF State Cross Country Championships, the Davis High freshman repeated that finish at Saturday’s Foot Locker West Regional Championships.

The meet, contested at the venerable Mt. SAC course in Walnut, featured an elite field of 136 seeded runners from California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Montana, Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho and Hawaii competing for a spot in the Foot Locker National Championship. The top 10 finishers at the four regional meets qualified for the National meet, set for next Saturday at Balboa Park in San Diego.

O’Keeffe’s time of 18:33 put her comfortably among the qualifiers, and she was the top freshman finisher by a large margin. The next ninth-grader came in 37th.

“She just put it all together and executed,” said DHS coach Bill Gregg. “This is a tremendous accomplishment for a freshman.”

O’Keeffe is only the second Blue Devil ever to qualifying for the Foot Locker Nationals, following Laurynne Chetelat in 2007.

Hoops clinic

The Davis Hoops Wildcats — a local nonprofit AAU basketball club that attracts players from Davis, Dixon, Woodland and surrounding areas — will host a free skills clinic Sunday for players ages 5-9. The Junior Wildcats event will run from 4 to 5 p.m. at the old Dixon High School gym, 455 E. A St. in Dixon.

The event is the first of a series of clinics designed to introduce players and their families to the Junior Wildcats program. This includes a four-hour camp planned for Sunday, Dec. 9 from 1 to 5 p.m., also at Dixon High. The cost is $65.

The mission of the Junior Wildcats division is to introduce young athletes to the proper skills and technique of basketball while helping to develop a passion for the game, all in a fun and well-organized structure.

“Our goal is, that by introducing them to basketball at an earlier age, they can easily transition to the Wildcats program as they become age-eligible (at age 10),” said spokeswoman Patti Sousa.

The Junior Wildcats program was developed and is run by current Wildcats high school coaches and players. For more information, call Sousa at 916-835-9602.
