Last weekend was a busy one for the Davis Bike Club Junior Race Team members as they had success in a pair of races on Saturday and another on Sunday.

On Saturday, DBC rider Su Tuli captured first place in the junior women’s event at the Golden State Race Series Criterium in Rancho Cordova.

That same day, at the Cat’s Hill Classic Premier Series in Los Gatos, four Davis riders competed two junior men’s criteriums. In the 17-18 year-old event Will Kanz finished fifth, just ahead of teammate David Alcalay, who crossed in seventh place.

Local standout Magnus Bush finished ninth in the 15-16 race with DBC’s David Leon in 14th.

Then Sunday, Tuli, Kanz, Leon and Jack Hargrove had strong showings at the Golden State Race Series Circuit Race.

The DBC Junior Team is made up of kids ages 10 to 18 who train and compete year-round in road, mountain and cyclocross races. All of last weekend’s events were part of the Northern California Nevada Cycling Association, which is the recognized local association under USA Cycling.

Wildcats hoops

The Davis Wildcats’ 13U boys team went 3-0 to win the Full Court Press Tournament on Saturday in Rocklin.

In the opening game, the locals defeated the CV Hornets Elite, 48-31, using tenacious defense and accurate shooting to take an early lead. Collin Yee led Davis with 14 points, including three 3-pointers, and Anthony Hatfield added a pair of treys and some excellent defense.

The Wildcats topped their hometown rivals, the Davis Hot Shots, 93-48, in the second outing, taking control with a 50-18 halftime advantage. The Wildcats’ trapping defense, paced by Jalen Rosario and Max Seed, created easy transition baskets, with Will Ziegler finding Matthew Uriate for a couple of those fast-break buckets.

Wildcats Ben Sneed and Peyton Early controlled the paint with rebounds and interior scoring as every player on the team contributed some scoring.

The locals then rallied from a 10-point deficit with four minutes left to edge NCP, 40-35, in the championship contest.

With their team trailing 33-23, Yee, Hatfield and Seed turned up the perimeter defense and Sneed’s steal and basket made it 33-30. Later, two clutch free throws by Ziegler put Davis ahead to stay.

Diamonds gymnastics

Isabela Martinez did more than just become the first Davis Diamonds gymnast in program history to compete  at the USA Junior Olympic Western National Championships on Sunday, she helped her Region 1 squad capture first place in the Senior C division at the Century Link Arena in Boise, Idaho.

Martinez, a junior at Winters High, scored a 35.35 in the all-around – good for 28th overall — by hitting all four routines to help her team sweep every event. Individually, she placed 25th on vault and floor.

The 12 best Level 9 gymnasts from Northern and Southern California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah represented Region 1 at Westerns.

Knights lacrosse

The Davis Knights’ U13 boys Blue lacrosse team traveled to Roseville on Sunday to defeat Woodcreek 11-5.

Davis (11-2, 7-2 in conference) jumped out to a 4-1 lead early, but Woodcreek had cut it to 6-4 by halftime.

The Knights responded in the second half, running away with the game behind goalie Tanner McNamara’s eight saves.

Justin Qvistgaard led the locals with three goals and an assist, Corbin Russo and Nick Mahoney each tallied twice and Evan Mack, Sean Smith, Gerad Christain-Lichtenhan and McNamara scoring one apiece.

Other Davis contributions came from Hudson Garland, Morgan Heard, Lucas Kinder, Kyle Difuntorum, Lucas Griffiths, Logan McNamara, Cayden Hotaling and Stanly Topete.

Youth golf

A pair of local golfers competed in the First Tee Junior Tournament at Morgan Creek Country Club Golf on Sunday in Roseville.

Alyssa Yee shot a 96 to finish seventh in the girls 12-14 division, while brother Collin Yee carded an 85 to take seventh place out of 32 boys in the 12-13 division.

Basketball tryouts

The Davis Hot Shots youth basketball program will hold tryouts for its summer session on May 28-29 at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

Players in grades five, six and seven will go from 4 to 6 p.m. with eighth-grade through varsity-aged athletes trying out from 6 to 8 p.m.

In addition, Hot Shots president Dino Clark will hold weekly fundamentals clinics for boys and girls in grades fourth through 11. Registration is on May 28 from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Harper gym.

Youth volleyball camps

Sessions on July 21, 23 and 25 will make up an All-Skills Camp, while workouts on July 28 and 30 and Aug. 1 are skill specific.

All sessions are 4 to 6 p.m. at the The Cage.
