Davis High’s twin senior sisters Khaliya and Malika Wilkins were named co-Most Valuable Players of the Delta Valley Conference, according to the school’s athletic director Dennis Foster.

The honors come a week after the Wilkinses were named to play in the 41st annual Optimist Basketball All-Star game on Saturday, April 2, at Center High.

Named to the all-DVC first team were center Sarah Sadler, another DHS senior, and sophomore forward Ashleigh Vandenbrink. Guard Ali Campos, a 10th-grader, earned honorable mention status in a vote of league coaches.

The Blue Devils, who went 10-0 in conference before being bounced from the playoffs in the first round by Pleasant Grove, were the only DVC school with the entire starting five accorded all-conference honors.

Foster, who spent eight years as boys basketball coach at Natomas High, took over as interim coach after district officials removed Jeff Christian in the middle of his sixth season at the helm.

Foster has stepped aside as the district now looks for a new coach.

The Wilkinses shared team honors in virtually every offensive category while Vandenbrink and Sadler were two of the region’s top rebounding defensive stars. Campos was another strong defender who ran the offense when both Wilkinses were out of games.

Notes: DHS finished the season 20-7. … At the Optimist Game, 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. Tip-off is at 4 p.m.
