The Davis Blue Devils, a club roller hockey program, sent two teams to the Sierra Inline Hockey League tournament earlier this month in Antioch.

The Devils’ varsity-level squad put in a determined effort, but a short bench caused by several injured teammates was too much to overcome.

Still, local goalie Eddie Berlin was stellar in a game against Chico, posting a save percentage of 96, while Davis’ goals in its contests came from Teddy Xiao and Joe Blackwell, who scored two each. Jacob Muller and Daley Glander added assists, while Daniel Rooney and Ryan Kowta were strong on the defensive end.

The Blue Devils’ JV-level team dropped its opener against Chico but bounced back to win its final two games.

In beating the Antioch Bucks (3-1) and Livermore Vipers (6-4), defender Dylan Lee provided good support to goalie Max Muller, who turned away a total of 49 shots in the tournament. On offense, the locals were led by three goals from Victor Valdez-Chabot and two each from Max Landy, Jack Shields and Sam Blakewell. Jack and Cole Skoog added one tally apiece.

Wildcats hoops

The Davis Wildcats seventh-grade Black basketball team went 1-1 at a tournament in Livermore last weekend.

In the opener, Davis took the Head Royce from Oakland to the final seconds before falling, 31-30. Quinn Vaesworn led the way for the Wildcats with 12 points and 17 rebounds and Jake Taylor added seven points and three steals. Sean Finerty had five points and four boards for Davis, while Romel Osorio, Zach Bergevin and Gabe Murray each scored a bucket.

The locals wrapped up the tournament by using a smothering press and pressure defense to overwhelm the Bay Area Wolverines, 63-17. Finerty led the way with 20 points and nine rebounds, while Reed Hessl put in 18 points and came up with six steals.

In addition, point guard Osorio did a great job of running the Wildcat offense, finishing with 10 points and 10 assists, Murray knocked down three shots and Taylor scored five, grabbed seven rebounds and had five steals. Bergevin, who was stout defensively, tallied four points in the win.

Aquadarts swimming

Ten Davis Aquadart swimmers earned spots on the Sierra Nevada All-Star team recently.

The 48-member squad will travel to San Diego for the 2013 All-Star meet on Jan. 19.

Aquadarts to get all-star recognition included U10 swimmers Selby Anderson and Gianluca Urlando and 11/12 performers Keianna Pineda, Zoe Cosgrove and Kiet Nguyen. Davis’ 13/14 stars are Chenoa Devine, Tucker Fisk, Cameron Wright, Owen Yancher and Jesse Walker.

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 Petersen, 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.

DHS cheer clinic

Davis High cheerleaders will conduct Cheer Clinic 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, Jan. 27, at DHS’ South Gym.

Hopefuls ages 6 to 13 are invited to learn cheers, jumps, tumbling and dance from the award-winning Blue Devil cheerleaders and their coaches.

Cost for the session is $40 in advance and $45 at the event. The fee includes a T-shirt, small group instruction by age, snacks and beverages, and a free ticket to the Feb. 1

DHS boys basketball game, which is Break the Record Night. Clinic participants also will have a chance to perform on the court that night with the Devil cheerleaders.

To learn more and reserve a spot, contact Megan Hupe at 530-753-0424 or [email protected]
