From page B8 | April 25, 2013 |

The Davis High boys and girls each posted decisive victories on Wednesday as Elk Grove was in town for a Delta Valley Conference track and field meet at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.

In girls competition, the Blue Devils cruised to a 99-31 win, while the DHS boys beat the Thundering Herd, 82-45.

Kyle Clancy highlighted the Davis outing, taking home three first-place medals. Clancy captured the 110 hurdles in 15.58, jumped 6-05 to win the high jump and soared 19-06.5 to earn the top spot in the long jump.

The Devils double winners were thrower Nick Denton — shot put and discus — and runner Ellie Eaton, who sped past the field in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

DHS also got a victory in the 4×100 relay to go along with individual wins from Rose Stephens (100 hurdles), Brian Song (1,600), Han-ah Sumner (girls 400), Blake Croft (boys 400), Alexander McIntyre (100), Fiona O’Keeffe (800), Cailtin Mazzoleni (high jump), Courtney Meyer (girls pole vault), Spencer LaHaye (boys pole vault), Joseena John (long jump), Zoe Hunt-Murray (girls triple jump), David Matthews (boys triple jump), Alicia Demaree (shot put), Laurel Darragh (girls 3,200) and Jasper Laca (boys 3,200).

A notable moment came in the girls 1,600 race as a pair of Blue Devils sisters went 1-2, with Elisa McIsaac edging Giulia McIsaac.

Former Blue Devils excel

A pair of former DHS track and field standouts now competing for Whitworth College, a Division III program in Spokane, Wa., have each qualified for this weekend’s Northwest Conference Championships.

Freshman Nate Stenson — who was last seen running the 4×400 relay and taking eighth in the high jump for the Blue Devils at the 2012 Sac-Joaquin Masters meet — cleared 6-8.75 in the high jump in a recent Whitworth outing to enter the league championships as the top seed in the event and the 10th-ranked D-III high jumper in the country. Stenson also will compete in the long jump and triple jump.

Another former Devil, Andrew Tkach, will run represent the Pirates in the 200-meter race at the NWC title meet. Tkach is a senior at Whitworth.

DHS football

Blue Devil football coach Steve Smyte is visiting local junior high schools this week and next to give young athletes information about playing on the program’s junior varsity or freshman squads this fall. After spending Monday at Holmes and Thursday at Emerson and DaVinci, Smye is hosting a lunch meeting at Da Vinci SHS on Friday in the Library Presentation Room. Smyte will be at Harper on Tuesday 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.
