Sports briefs: Former Blue Devil Nelson earns academic award at NCC

By
From page B10 | July 26, 2013 |

Davis High graduate Derek Nelson was one of 10 North Central College athletes to earn All-Academic status from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for the 2013 season. The number was a Cardinals record and the third-most of any school in Division III.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic award, student-athletes must have compiled a grade-point average of 3.30 and have competed at either the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championships or finished the season ranked in the national top 35 in an individual event or the top 25 in a relay event.

Nelson, a junior sprinter and hurdler for NCC, is a sports management major who placed second in the 400-meter hurdles at the CCIW Outdoor Championships and competed on the Cardinals’ 4×400 relay squad at the NCAA outdoor national championships.

Kids’ triathlon

Get Fit Davis and the El Macero Country Club are joining forces this summer to host the second annual triTRAINed kids’ triathlon event.

The triathlon, which is for children and youths ages 5 to 15, is set for this Saturday.

At the triathlon, which begins at 8 a.m. at the El Macero Country Club, 44571 Clubhouse Drive, kids will be divided into three age groups, each with different distances to swim, bike and run.

For more information and to register, visit www.getfitdavis.com and click on the “Registration Form” link under the kids triathlon logo.

DHS athletic golf event

Davis High School, in partnership with the Blue & White Foundation, is presenting its first Kick-Off Golf Tournament on Monday, Aug. 5, to support Blue Devil athletics.

Beginning at 8 a.m. at El Macero Country Club, the event includes a four-person scramble, continental breakfast and lunch and awards reception with a silent auction following the golf.

Cost is $150 per player or $500 for a foursome. Visit www.golfdigestplanner.com/24231-KickOffGolf to register.

As a bonus, players who register online will receive a one-year subscription to Golf Digest.

Bike Hall of Fame 

The Clif Family Winery of St. Helena has hopped into the fundraising seat for the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.

On Sunday, Aug. 11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the winery’s Velo Vino tasting room will be the site of a benefit during which wine fans sample wines, enjoy Clif Family treats or relax with an espresso — before or after heading out on one of eight self-guided bike rides through the heart of the Napa Valley.

“The mission (of the Hall of Fame) is to educate people about cycling’s past … and encourage them to participate in cycling activities,” Hall Trustee Brodie Hamilton explains. “If cycling’s not your style, let someone else saddle up while you enjoy Velo Vino and walking the charming downtown St. Helena.”

Tasting is $10 for three wines or a glass for $6. Hamilton says 15 percent of the proceeds — not only from the tastings but from any winery purchases that day — will go to the Hall of Fame.

There is no registration fee, but RSVP is requested via Eventbrite.

For more information, go to www.event.info@usbhof.org. Bike rentals are available: see www.cliffamily.com/velo_vino_cycling.cfm.

Labor Day race

The Golden Valley Harriers’ Labor Day Races, an event that last year raised more than $10,000 for local running programs, is back this year.

On Sept. 2, 5K and 10K races will leave from Davis Commons at First and D streets at 8 a.m., with a 1K kids’ race to follow at 9:30 a.m. The 5K and 10K races will feature official race chip timing and awards go to the top three finishers and top three in each age group. Kids’ race participants will receive a finisher’s medal.

The Labor Day Races will not only raise funds for local running programs — last year, money went to high school cross country teams from Davis, Dixon and Woodland, as well as Team Davis, a program for athletes with special needs — but the event also is an international cultural exchange with Davis’ sister city of Inuyama, Japan.

For more information or to register, visit www.goldenvalleyharriers.org. Whole Foods Market is sponsoring post-race breakfast fare and participants get a race T-shirt.

A special discount is available to members, friends and family of the Davis Chamber of Commerce through July 31. Enter discount code “Davis Chamber.”
