Sports briefs: “Rusty” DHS girls beat Folsom, 5-0

FOLSOM — Davis High girls soccer coach Allen Carlson said his team was “rusty.”

He thought “we got away with some really sloppy play.”

Carlson was disappointed after his charges only had two fractured practices — in a gym and on a muddy field — since their last game all the way back on March 10.

Well, nothing has changed, despite Carlson’s concern.

On Tuesday, at Folsom High, the Blue Devils used a 5-0 victory over the perennially strong Bulldogs to bring their record to 9-0-1. Coincidently, the 5-0 count was the same score by which DHS beat Wood on March 10.

Jennie Hawkins started the Devil scoring when she hammered home a rebound off Olivia Muller’s first-half try.

Moments later, Muller — from 20 yards out — got her goal.

Hawkins then fed Ari Heyer to put Folsom in a 3-0 halftime hole.

After intermission, Davis junior forward Anna Maria Gilbertson had, what Carlson called “vintage Anna Maria goals” — long, graceful drives to the net, eventually finishing.

“Ari played really, really well in the middle,” Carlson said, adding that Muller and Hawkins had excellent showings, too. ”Olivia is fun to watch as she (brings) the ball out of spaces.”

It there is no monsoon, DHS will play Grant on Thursday. With the recent weather forecast, Carlson says that game is more than iffy.

“We need to play,” Carlson went on. “I’m not sure when we’ll get to again.”

Folsom, also feeling the rainouts, fell to 1-2-2.

DHS girls basketball

Local fans will have one last chance to see Davis High’s Malika and Khaliya Wilkins in action as the twin basketball stars were selected to play in the Sacramento-area’s annual Optimist Game.

The contest will be played at Center High School on April 2 at 4 p.m.

The Wilkins sisters are playing for the South squad, which will be coached by Sacramento High’s Michelle Massari.

Tickets, which can be purchased at the door, are $8 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for kids under 12.

Hall of Fame talk

On Sunday, April 3, the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame will host a presentation by engineering proffessor Chester Kyle about aerodynamic bicycling.

The talk, which runs from 4 to 5 p.m., will cover the events leading up to and following the 1984 Olympics in which the United States won 12 medals, its first ones since 1912. Beginning in 1982, engineers for USA Cycling’s Elite Athlete Program prepared for the Olympics by working on a complete aerodynamic racing system which included disk wheels, airfoil frame tubing, oval cranks and disk chain wheels, streamlined helmets, slick skin suits, shoes and special components.

It was the engineering opportunity of a lifetime for Kyle, who led the project. Kyle is an adjunct professor of mechanical engineering at Cal State Long Beach. He has a Ph.D. in engineering from UCLA. In 1974, he designed and built the first streamlined bicycle in the USA, which is now at the Hall of Fame.

Kyle was the co-founder of the International Human Powered Vehicle Association in 1976, then led the bicycle design for the U.S. in the 1984 and 1996 Olympics. He has been a researcher and consultant on sports aerodynamics to companies such as Nike, Specialized and Bell. He has published more than 100 popular and scientific articles on the sport and was an editor for Cycling Science and Bicycling Magazine.

Sunday’s presentation at 303 Third St., will be free for members. The cost for nonmembers is $5. For more information email Eventinfo@usbhof.org.

The Hall of Fame is open from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
