The Davis Aftershock, a 14U girls softball squad, finished second in its recent tournament, dropping back-to-back contests to Sunrise.
Aftershock opened play with a 17-6 win against American River, avenging a loss in the prior week’s championship game. Abbie DeWit dominated in the circle.
Davis squared off against Woodland in its second game. Momentum went back and forth with lead changes throughout the contest. Trailing 9-6 in the final inning, the Aftershock pushed 15 runs across the plate and ran away with a 21-9 victory. Rebeca Engelhard picked up the win for Davis.

The win put the 14U locals into the winner’s bracket, where it faced undefeated Sunrise team the next morning.
In the first round, Sunrise took an early 1-0 lead. Engelhard worked out of several jams, and the Davis defense was stellar. The Aftershock offense found traction in the third inning, scoring six runs to take a 6-1 lead.
In the top of the fourth, Sunrise scored five runs of its own to knot the score. 6-6. With time expired and a girl on third with no outs, Davis was unable to push the run across.
The squads would start the next inning with a runner at second base, per the international tie-breaker rule. Davis loaded the bases again but this time local Lili Kunimoto drew the walk to plate Jessica Christopulos for the win, which put the Aftershock in the double-elimination championship final.
Davis found itself facing a familiar foe as Sunrise had battled back to enter the title tilt. Davis needed to win one of two to claim the trophy. Sunrise scored all the runs it would need in the first inning, edging Davis 3-2 and forcing a second game. After an eight-minute break, both teams retook the field and Sunrise prevailed 16-2.
This was Davis’ second consecutive second-place finish. The Aftershock will continue play at the Western Nationals.

Davis AquaStarz
The Davis AquaStarz placed first in the VFCAL Synchronized Swimming Championships. The team is led by head coach Meredith Fleener. The Aquastarz were undefeated this season, taking first in each meet against Fulton-El Camino, Auburn, Sunrise and Cordova.

Junior golf
Sam Yamauchi of Davis finished tied for 18th in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championship at the PGA National Golf Resort in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Wednesday. Yamauchi carded a three-day total of 221 to finish five-over. He shot a 2-under par 70 on his final day. Joaquin Niemann of Santiago, Chile won the 14-15 age group with an 11-under 205.
Aside from a tough course, the local golfer battled Florida’s summer heat, humidity and several rain storms and lightning delays.

On Monday, local golfer Collin Yee carded a round of 79 to claim second place in the First Tee Junior Tour Boys 12-13 Division. The tournament was held at the challenging Del Paso Country Club, site of the 2015 U.S. Senior Open.

Yee shot a 40 on the front nine and closed out with a 39 on the back, including a birdie on the par-5 13th hole.
