Sports briefs: Wilkins sisters to play in Optimist Game

By March 19, 2011

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.

Anibaba’s debut

DHS graduate Jalil Anibaba played the whole game at defender in his first regular season Major League Soccer game for the Chicago Fire on Saturday against FC Dallas in Frisco, Texas.

The match ended in a tie as Milton Rodriguez scored in the 19th minute to help Dallas escape with a tie.

Rodriguez redirected a pass from Zach Loyd with his right heel into the left corner of the net from just inside the top of the goalie’s box.

Diego Chaves, making his MLS debut, scored in the 17th minute after he rebounded a deflected save off the right hand of goalkeeper Kevin Hartman and scored from eight yards away to give the Fire a 1-0 advantage.


The Davis Aquadarts swim team offers Springdarts, a spring session for swimmers in kindergarten through their teens. Swimmers have a choice of two sessions: the 12-week, which begins Monday and goes through June 6, and the eight-week, which begins April 18.
