VACAVILLE — Following in the footsteps of their varsity teammates, Davis High’s underclassmen had an outstanding cross country outing at Saturday’s Lagoon Valley Classic.
The season-opening race was on one of the toughest courses in the area, featuring steep terrain and dusty trails. Despite the tough course and the hot conditions, local runners had a successful day.

The Blue Devil frosh/soph girls won their race, paced by freshman Sofia Castiglioni’s first-place time of 12:47 (over the two-mile course).

Freshman Abby Fisk was fourth in 13:39, followed by Adria Lammers in sixth, Sarah Sherwin in 14th and Julia Zabala taking 39th. Filling out DHS’ top seven were Emily Talbert and Lily Clouse. Castiglioni’s time places her second on the program’s all-time frosh/soph time list, with Fisk coming in at ninth.

Pooja Tripathi was the top Devil finisher in the JV girls race, placing second in 14:05. Her time puts her at third all-time on that course for Davis JVs.

Tripathi’s teammates packed well, giving the team a second-place finish behind Manteca, a school that opted to run its varsity squad in the JV race.

Blue Devil Zoe Juanitas was fourth in 15:51, while Suleikha Sutter, Michaela Joerger and Mikayla Finver all placed in the top 20. Emily Lufburrow and Arden Ambrose-Winters completed the DHS top seven.

On the boys’ side, the local teams took home a pair of second places (JV and sophomore) and was sixth place in the frosh race.

Just as with Davis’ JV girls, the boys raced to second behind a varsity squad from Manteca. Blake Croft was the top runner for the Devils, placing second in 11:48 (fourth on the all-time list) with Matt Mayrclose behind in fifth (12:23). Andrew Leung came in 12th, John Conant was 17th and Cameron McCarty, Zachary Moffatt and Geo Kim finalized the DHS top seven.

With a 2-3-4 finish from Nick Borowsky (11:34), Ben Roberts (11:34) and Kellen Browning (11:46), the local sophomore boys took second. Winston Tran and Brendan Deas were next for the Blue Devils with Aidan Cox and Ryan Nishikawa finishing out the top seven.

The DHS frosh boys used a pair of top 20 finishes — from Nick Leacox (seventh in 12:53) and Conner Fox (17th in 13:22) — to come in sixth. Jackson Laird, Aaron Bushnell and Ethan Tang completed the scoring, while Jack Williams and Liam Schroth filled out the top seven.

Despite all-around play from Jordyn Fahey, DHS fell 25-23 in both sets.
