With one official match — a comeback victory over Will C. Wood — under its belt, the Davis High girls volleyball team took the court again Tuesday for its Foundation Game at Pioneer.

Though the match won’t count in the standings, Blue Devil coach Julie Crawford watched her team show some grit once again in a 25-21, 18-25, 21-25, 25-15, 15-11 come-from-behind win.

“It was similar to the first game; we came out tough and then kind of lost the momentum,” said the reigning Delta Valley Conference coach of the year. “It was a good win because we showed a lot of heart. They’ve shown me two times now that they can win these tough ones and that they have the physical conditioning to play long matches.”

After letting down in the second and third games on Tuesday, DHS used stronger serving and defense and smarter offense to turn things around. The leadership of junior Maya Gilardi also was key to the victory.

“She is a vocal leader and just has a real presence out on the court,” Crawford said. “She played really awesome (Tuesday), just really consistent.”

Other players who earned the coaches praise were back-line defenders Kimmy Siu, Mackenzie Harrison and Chris Roeckl-Navazio.

The foundation game format — a CIF charity match that doesn’t count in either team’s record — gave Woodland Christian transfer Carolyn Brady a chance to shine for Davis. She won’t be eligible to play in official matches until DVC play begins in October, but on Tuesday, Brady had several blocks and hits at the net that showed what an asset she’ll be down the road.

DHS girls golf

The Blue Devils learned several lessons on and off the course at a Tuesday scrimmage against Will C. Wood.

With two of its top players not in the lineup, DHS got strong performances from seniors Hayley Mitchell (42) and JiHye Lee (46) in a nine-hole round at Cypress Lakes Golf Course, and allowed freshmen Emma Cowan and Jessica Christopulos to get their feet wet in a competitive varsity match.

Despite the Devils leaving the course as the apparent winner, Davis coach Rhonda Mohr found math errors by both teams when rechecking the scorecard. When the scores were added up correctly, the Wildcats came out ahead, 249-268.

“These are good lessons to learn early in the season,” Mohr said. “I just wouldn’t feel right claiming a win when the scorecard didn’t add up right.

“That’s also what these early practice scrimmages are all about. By the time we get to league matches, the girls have learned a few new things, whether it’s rules or how to handle competition.”

UCD men’s basketball

Nationally-renowned ESPN college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman is the latest pundit to add Aggie junior Corey Hawkins to his exclusive list of the country’s top mid-major talents.

Goodman recently released a list containing 20-plus mid-major players college basketball fans should keep an eye on throughout the 2013-14 season because each possesses the potential to become an NBA prospect.

In his first season at UCD, Hawkins finished with a 20.3 points-per-game average — one of the top figures in the country — to become the first player in program history to win a Big West scoring title. He shot more than 84 percent from the line and 40 percent from 3-point range.

Besides earning top-15 rankings in seven Big West categories, Hawkins broke a 34-year-old school scoring record by dropping 40 points at Hawaii on Jan. 19.

After last season, Hawkins was named to the Lou Henson Mid-Major All-America Team and All-Big West first team, was honored as the conference’s Newcomer of the Year and earned the Colby E. “Babe” Slater Award — given to the top Aggie male athlete each year.

Training workshop

Professional runner Chelsea Reilly, a Davis High graduate who holds the program’s career record in the 1,600 meters and went on to be an All-American at Cal, is presenting a sports training workshop on Sept. 15 to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team in Training.

The workshop, which will be at the Davis High track from 10 a.m. to noon, is designed for anyone interested in improving performance and preventing injuries.

All levels are welcome with a $25 cash donation or check made out to LLS. Participants should wear exercise clothes and shoes and bring a water bottle. Those who have jump ropes are urged to bring them as well.

Fall lacrosse events

This month, the Davis Lacrosse Association is presenting an introductory clinic as well as its annual Fall Ball camps.

The Sept. 22 clinic is designed to be a fun introduction to the sport at which all participants will receive a regulation lacrosse stick and game ball with entry fee of $25. Open to boys and girls in grades two through eight, the clinic will go from 10 a.m. to noon at Northstar Park.

Interested athletes should pre-register at www.davislax.org — click on the “Register Online” tab to get started — bring water and wear comfortable clothing.

Also, the organization’s Fall Ball Camps for boys and girls of all skill levels begin on Sept. 24.

Headed by coach Suzane Isidor, the girls camp will run Tuesday and Sundays, while coach Lorne Silverstein’s boys camp goes Thursdays and Sundays starting Sept. 26.

For more information on the camps, which run through Nov. 24, visit www.davislax.org.

Additionally, the Davis Lacrosse Association is always looking for coaches who have playing and/or coaching experience. For more info on coaching, contact Mark Soeth at dlapresident@gmail.com.
