Eight of the best young swimmers in Davis traveled to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville to represent the Aquadarts at the 2012 Speedo Winter Nationals.

Battling through fatigue and various ailments, the locals still managed to post several great swimming performances.

Standout Matt Whittle led the way for the Aquadarts, qualifying for the finals in each of his events. Whittle had his best time in the prelims of the 200 breaststroke (2:01.02) and went on to take eighth in that event, the team’s best finish. He added strong finishes in the 200 individual medley (15th), the 100 butterfly (15th) and the 100 breast (21st).

On the girls side, Davis’ Paige Maynard and Chenoa Devine were especially fast, with Maynard posting a Senior National time standard with her 2:02.22 in the 200 fly. She added strong swims in the 200 backstroke and 100 fly, and contributed to a couple of good performances by Aquadart relay squads.

Devine showed off her endurance, taking 12th in the 1,650 freestyle by touching the wall in 16:44.40 and also swimming well in the 500 free and 200 IM.

Alex Rieger, Tara Halsted and Emma Barksdale joined Maynard in taking 17th in the 4×50 free relay and Kathleen Benjamin subbed for Halsted as the squad took 22nd in the 4×100. Devine teamed with Maynard, Rieger and Barksdale to capture 24th in the 4×50 medley.

Another Aquadart, Jonathan Pun, swam personal best times in the 100 fly (52.83), 100 breast (57.50) and 200 breast (2:04.01).

Poison Envy soccer

The Davis Poison Envy, a U14 girls soccer team, went 1-1-1 at last weekend’s AYSO Sectional Tournament in Foster City.

After a 3-1 loss to San Bruno in the opening game, Davis bounced back with a 1-0 victory over Saratoga later in the day. The Poison Envy’s Odessa Seng had a goal in each of the contests, both off assists from McKenna Chupka.

In the final tournament game, Jasmine Brayton put in a corner kick from Kelly Ostrom to give the locals an early lead, but undefeated Mountain View found the equalizer in the second half and the game ended in a tie.

Throughout the event, strong defense from Tarin McMorrow, Isabella Chiaravalloti, Lydia Chong, Hanah Wyman and goalie Mitra Varjavand kept Davis in every game, while Bailey Thompson, Maya Lawton, Grace Haass and Kyla Winton provided ball control across the midfield.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U11 girls soccer team, posted two decisive victories last weekend, starting with a 5-1 win over Sacramento United in its final league game.

Lily Byrne opened up the local scoring with a long liner and Jordan Davis followed a few minutes later by finishing in the box. Anne Ayotte then drove in a blast from 25 yards and Davis led 3-0 at intermission. In the second half, Davis scored again, off an assist from Ayotte and Byrne set up Adeline Umphress to complete the scoring.

Next up for the Stampede was a State Cup matchup with Placer United. The locals got goals from Grace Barger, Alex Hanna, Davis and Sydney Moore in a 4-0 win.

Tough defense from Stampede players Yasmeen Dmeiri and Grace Carlson nearly produced two shutouts as the United got their goal late in the game.

Wildcats 12U basketball

The Davis Wildcats 12U Black boys basketball team reached the finals of the Holiday Hoops Tournament last weekend in Rocklin, taking second place.

In their first game, the Wildcats beat the Cal Reign, 39-18, behind the hot shooting of Henry Siegler (12 points). Davis’ Kayden Hoal pulled down eight rebound to go with seven points, while Erick Lengtat’s six point came on three jumpers. On the defensive end, local Will Ziegler blocked a pair of shots and grabbed six boards.

Davis kept up the great play in its next encounter, blowing  the Junior Hillmen away, 48-11. The locals, who used strong defensive pressure to take a 28-6 halftime lead, were paced by Lance Prussel’s 12 points. Hoal had a double-double with 11 boards and 11 points, while Rayan Tilmatine contributed nine points and Collin Yee orchestrated the offense with seven points and four assists, adding four steals.

In the championship game, the Wildcats played toe-to-toe with PHPS before eventually coming up short, 51-41. Yee led the way with 11 points and four steals and Davis got 10 point each from Hoal and Tilmatine. Max Seed knocked down two buckets for the locals, who trailed by just four in the late stages of the game.

Wildcats 7th grade basketball

The Davis Wildcats’ seventh-grade Black team played well but dropped a pair of games at the Holiday Hoops Tournament last weekend.

In the first contest, local standout Sean Finerty poured in 20 points and forward Quinn Vaesworn added eight points and eight rebounds but Davis fell to the Hawks, 50-33. In the loss, point guard Romel Osorio had four assists to go with his three points and Jake Taylor chipped in a bucket.

The Wildcats couldn’t compete with the height of the Pharaohs in their next matchup, losing 88-48 despite 18 points and six rebounds from Finerty. Center Joe Morrison added 10 points and Kai Taylor had nine points for Davis, which also got six points, six rebounds and four assists from Jake Taylor. Zach Bergevin (three points) and Osorio (two) contributed to the local offense.
