Youth roundup: Aquadarts swimmer shine Seattle

By
From page B2 | December 06, 2012 |

The Davis Aquadarts produced strong performances across the board as 13 local swimmers competed recently in Seattle at the 64th annual Husky Invitational.

With nine competitors, the Davis girls had an especially strong showing as they put up 364 points to earn second in their age group. Their point total also was high enough to put the Aquadarts in eighth place among all girls teams, regardless of age.

The local boys had just four swimmers competing but each contributed to the Aquadarts’ 64-point outing.

For the Davis girls, Kathleen Benjamin and Emma Barksdale each posted USA Junior National qualifying times — sending them to Tennessee with some of their Aquadarts teammates this week — while Joanna Curry and Alex Rieger also scored points.

Curry made it to the finals (top 24) of the 200 butterfly, taking sixth in 2:04.85; the 200 backstroke, where she finished seventh (2:06.47); the 100 fly and the 500 freestyle. Rieger earned final swims in the 50 free, touching in 23:55 to get sixth place, and the 100 and 200 back. She took eighth in both of those races.

In addition, Barksdale was eighth in the 200 individual medley (2:04.19), ninth in the 400 IM (4:27.98) and 19th in the 100 breast, while Benjamin took eighth place in the 100 breaststroke with her prelim time of 1:03.23 earning her the Junior National berth. She added top 12 swims in the 200 IM and the 200 breast.

On the boys side, Riley Hickman, Ernest Beynars, Tucker Fisk and Adam Raabe combined to take 14th in the 200 free relay (1:27.76) with Hickman providing the rest of the points by earning final swims in the 50, 100 and 200 free. His best individual time was his 21:14 leg in the relay.

The Aquadarts also got contributions from Marissa and Alex Lafreniere, Natalie Ramos, Jaida Aikens and Vivian Crow.

Boys lacrosse swap

Buy, sell, trade or donate gear for athletes in youth leagues through high school at the third annual Boys Lacrosse Swap set for Saturday.

Admission is free for the event, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Holmes Junior High multipurpose room, 1220 Drexel Drive.

In addition to bargains on used equipment, gear and clothing, Lacrosse Fanatic will be on site selling helmets, stringing supplies and other gear. Discount starter packages also will be available.

Families should bring cash, though checks may be accepted, and Lacrosse Fanatic will take credit cards.

Donations will help support the Davis High boys lacrosse teams. Drop off donations at 1804 Titian Place before Thursday, or request pickup by emailing krklenzendorf@sbcglobal.net or calling 530-297-5412. Otherwise, bring donations to the swap.

Junior Hoops camp

The Davis Hoops Wildcats — a local nonprofit AAU basketball club that attracts players from Davis, Dixon, Woodland and surrounding areas — is presenting a one-day Junior Wildcats holiday camp on Sunday for boys and girls ages 5-9. The event will run from 1 to 5 p.m. at the old Dixon High School gym, 455 E. A St. in Dixon.

The cost of $65 includes a T-shirt and a basketball, as well as instruction from experienced coaches.

The mission of the Junior Wildcats is to introduce young athletes to the proper skills and techniques of basketball while helping to develop a passion for the game, all in a fun and well-organized structure.

For more information, visit www.davishoops.com or contact Karen Ward at 530-219-8873 or karen@davishoops.com.

Youth track and field

The Davis Community Track and Field Club is launching a new program that targets junior high school students interested in the sport.

Beginning Jan. 7, students in seventh and eighth grades are invited to participate in a six-week conditioning program that will prepare them for a healthy and successful spring season.

“We decided to offer this program because so many parents came to us and said they needed something to help prepare their kids for participating safely in spring sports,” said former Davis High and UC Davis runner Drew Peterson, who coaches the program. “Too many kids get injured or discouraged because they leap into a competitive season without conditioning.”

Athletes will do conditioning to develop strength and agility, learn to safely warm up and warm down and be supported to participate in two optional all-comer meets. For more information and to register, contact coach Petersen at 530-210-7049.

Little League

Davis Little League registration is now open for the spring season. Little League is open to boys and girls ages 4-14 (based on player’s age as of April 30, 2013).

DLL has levels from Tee-ball to Juniors and serves nearly 1,000 Davis players each season. Register at http://davislittleleague.org/index.php.

Costs are $100 for Tee-ball; $155 for Farm ball, AA, AA and Majors; and $250 for Juniors. Late fees apply on and after Jan. 1.
