UC Davis junior Ashley Marshall, who ran the second leg of the Aggies’ winning 4×100-meter relay while also turning in two other strong sprints last weekend, was named the Big West Women’s Track Athlete of the Week for the third time this season.
Marshall, from Moreno Valley, finished third in the 100-meter dash Friday at Texas State’s Bobcat Invitational with a wind-aided time of 11.32 seconds. She came back a day later to take second in the 200 in 23.75 seconds.
Her 100-meter time would’ve broken her own UCD record of 11.34 seconds had it been wind-legal. However, it still ranks No. 1 in the Big West this season and sixth in the country.
Davis Rugby Club
The Davis Rugby Club is inviting local fans to watch its undefeated Varsity Silver squad try to stay that way in Saturday’s regular-season finale at Brown Stadium.
A victory for the Sacramento Valley Rugby Silver Division-leading locals would clinch the top seed in the upcoming Northern California Youth Rugby Association’s regional playoffs later this month.
The Silver team’s 10 a.m. game against Rio Linda will be followed by Davis Varsity Bronze squad matchups against Vacaville (11:30 a.m.) and Elk Grove (1:20 p.m.).
Admission is free for the three-game event.
Register for the Davis Summerdarts, a summer swim team offered by the Davis Aquadarts, on Monday and Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Civic Center Pool.
This program, which offers an introduction to competitive swimming with a low-key and fun approach, is for children ages 6 through teen, and runs from June 16 to Aug. 9. Minidarts, for children ages 4 and 5, also is available.
Information and registration forms can be found at www.aquadarts.org, or by contacting head coach Carolee Gregg at 530-758-DART.
Those interested in trying out for next school year’s Blue Devil cheer squad — and a parent or guardian — should attend one of two upcoming information nights at the DHS Library, 315 W. 14th St.
The meetings are set for 6 p.m. on Monday, April 7, and Thursday, April 10.
Tryouts will be Friday, April 18, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the DHS dance room, but cheer hopefuls are asked to arrive by 4 p.m. for check-in.
