Youth roundup: DBC juniors spend a successful weekend racing

From page B2 | May 29, 2014 |

Competing at a pair of weekend events, the Davis Bike Club’s Junior Team had several strong finishes.

At the Folsom Classic Criterium on Saturday, locals Killian Bush and Parker Miller raced in the boys and girls 9-12 category, with Parker taking second place.

Davis’ Anna Park finished third, just ahead of teammate Su Tuli (fourth) in the girls 13-18 race, while Will Kanz, David Leon, Magnus Bush and Jack Hargrove performed well in the boys 13-18 division.

In Monday’s Memorial Day Criterium at Morgan Hill, Miller earned another second-place finish as he raced with Killian Bush in the boys and girls 10-12 group.

Tuli — who took fourth — and Hargrove (fifth) were strong in the boys and girls 13-14 division.

With the 15-16 boys and the 17-18 boys racing together, the younger Magnus Bush helped Kanz take third place in the older division.

Youth water polo

Earlier this month seven members of the Davis Water Polo Club were invited to try out for U.S. national teams in their respective age groups and two — Cameron Wright of Davis and Nick Carniglia of Lodi — were selected to play for the American squads.

Wright, a ninth-grader at Harper who helped Davis High win the section title last fall, earned a spot on the boys national cadet team after a strong showing at the 16U tryout in Costa Mesa. Carniglia competed against the nation’s top 75 18U boys in Orange County and emerged with a spot on the U.S. men’s junior squad.

Five DWPC girls also earned invitations to Team USA camps as ninth-grader Katrina Sturm was vying for a spot on the U.S. women’s national cadet team, while Scout Brown, Emily Tapio, Avery Warhover and Reese Oliver tried out for the 14U development squad.

The Davis Water Polo Club offers competition and instruction for new and continuing athletes in the sport of water polo and is accepting summer-session registration from boys and girls. For more information, visit www.daviswaterpolo.org or contact coach Jamey Wright at ncwright0300@sbcglobal.net or 530-758-1234.

Wildcats basketball

The Norcal Wildcats, a 13U boys basketball team ended its season on a high note, going 4-0 to win the Lake Tahoe Memorial Weekend Tournament.

The locals opened by using a balanced scoring attack to top the CRR Red Raiders, 68-60. Collin Yee led Davis with 16 points and four steals, while Anthony Hatfield scored 12.

Next was the Game Stoppers, who fell 44-39 to the Wildcats in a defensive battle. For the locals, Ben Sneed pulled down six rebounds and scored 10 points in the paint, Matthew Uriate added seven points and four boards and Yee had four steals and nine points, including a clutch trey and two late free throw. Will Ziegler’s six points and four rebounds were key to the victory.

Peyton Early’s bucket and three rebounds charged up Davis in its next win, a 49-35 decision over the Albany Crush that sent the Wildcats to the title game.

In the championship contest, the locals had nine big steals and made plays down the stretch of a 48-42 victory over the Flite Elite. Yee led the scoring with 13 points, with Hatfield adding 12 and playing excellent perimeter defense. Ziegler came up big in the fourth quarter with four rebounds and six crucial points.
