Davis Bike Club Junior member David Alcalay finished first in his division of the Rock Hopper Classic at Lagoon Valley on Sunday.

Alcalay captured the state championship in the boys 17-18 age bracket for the cross country mountain bike event.

Also Sunday, members of the DBC Junior Race Team competed in the 23rd annual Steve Dunlap Memorial Time Trial in Winters.

Juniors raced either 10 or 20 kilometers based on their age bracket. The individual time-trial event started riders at 30-second intervals.

The time trial started on Putah Creek Road in Winters and went east toward Stephenson Bridge Road. The trek was made harder with rising temperatures and strong winds. On sections of the course, speeds hit more than 30 miles per hour.

The DBC Juniors results include Killian Bush, third place 9-10 boys; Parker Miller, second for 11-12 girls; Jack Hargrove, fourth for 13-14 boys; Su Tuli, second for 13-14 girls; Aliya Traficante, first for 17-18 girls; Will Kanz, fifth for 15-18 boys; Magnus Bush, seventh for 15-18 boys; and David Leon, eighth for 15-18 boys.

Legacy Stampede U13
The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U13 girls team, established its top-10 ranking in Northern California after reaching the finals in last weekend’s Norcal Premier Cross Regional playoffs.

The locals got by Diablo FC Saturday afternoon with aggressive offense from Jordan Davis, Lindsay Vernau and Allie Belafsky, who combined for four goals with two assists from Vernau.

On Sunday, the Stampede was challenged by triple-digit temperatures and two very tough teams. The semifinal featured a barn-burner against the Mountain View/Los Altos Avalanche. The game’s only goal came in overtime when Niya Allen’s blast from the left wing was too much for the keeper to handle, allowing striker Davis to advance the team to the finals by passing in the 1-0 tally.

The Stampede faced Elk Grove for the afternoon final with the mercury reading 105 degrees at kickoff.  Falling behind 2-0 in the second half, the locals somehow fought through the extreme heat and fatigue to tie the game 2-2.  Forward Sophie Karperos knocked in Davis’ shot off the post and soon after Davis followed her own shot, racing to beat the keeper and tap in the equalizer.  But with minutes left, Elk Grove got one more and sealed its victory.

Yasmeen Dmeiri once again led the Stampede defense all weekend long, anticipating attacks and beating the opponents to the ball.  Fellow defender Grace Carlson came up big against the opposing strikers while midfielders Vernau and Lily Byrne worked tirelessly to control the ball, rarely getting a break from the baking sun. Leah Eccles, Sydney Moore, Skye Shaffer, Grace Barger, Julyana Lara and Ainsley Carroll bolstered the midfield and defense with solid efforts while keeper McKenna Lutzker fended off shot after shot.

Davis Rugby Club

The Davis youth Rugby Club kicked off the Summer Rugby 7’s tournaments this past Sunday in Dixon. While the teams struggled in the win column, they gained valuable experience with most kids playing and learning the game for the first time.

The varsity side finished the day with a draw and two loses. The draw came against the Elk Grove side that won the bracket. The Davis farsity was led by Matt Meyers, Marvin Grant, Bailey Murray, Michal Goodison, Ben Gore, Anthony Pedroia, Robert Campos and Ricky Houck.

The Davis JV team was short players so it combined with players from Vacaville JV. The team was led by Davis players Reese Peterson with multiple long runs for tries, Eben Kohn, Jesse Keenan, Chase Jones and Aavineet Johal.

The Rugby 7’s summer series of tournaments continues through June and July. High school players are welcome to participate. Contact Mike Goodison for more information at 530-902-1312. Practices are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays at Davis High School.
