Youth roundup: Diamonds climb high at Vineyard Classic

By
From page B8 | October 04, 2012 |

The 23 Davis Diamonds gymnasts who participated at the recent 2012 Vineyard Classic were led by event wins from Mariske Pretorius, Aubrey Watts and Vivian Lee, while the Level 4 squad grabbed a team silver medal.

Held on the Alameda County Fairgrounds, this Junior Olympic event attracted several of the strongest teams in the state.

In a competitive Sunday session the Davis Level 5 gymnasts started on vault with Sonia Sutton’s excellent handspring taking the bronze medal. Pretorius placed second on bars, third on beam and first on floor to win the all-around in a close race. A fall on beam kept Sutton in fifth all-around after strong bars and floor performances.

Making her Level 5 debut, Brenna Peterson stepped up with strong scores on bars and beam to tie for seventh all-around. Isabel Lavallee was seventh on floor, Maeve Kelly vaulted to fifth place and Katie Borowsky nailed her beam routine, placing ninth. Among the oldest gymnasts, Olivia McKenzie placed fourth on floor and fifth on beam to finish seventh all-around. Ianthe Pretorius swung her strongest bars set to date for sixth place, while Kaelyn Perkins showed promise.

Watts started the Level 4 session by vaulting to the silver, before clean, strong performances on bars and beam earned her a pair of golds. She finished second with a personal-best all-around score of 35.525. In addition, Kathleen Sheridan placed in the top nine on all four events to finish sixth all-around and Emma Rebhun was top 10 on all four events for eighth all-around.

In the intermediate age division, Vivian Lee won bars, earned a 9.0 on vault and a 9.025 on floor to take the bronze all-around (35.8). Right behind with a 35.6 all-around score, was teammate Reyna Shauman. In the older Level 4 session, Julia Miyamoto won the silver on vault, fourth on beam and fifth all-around, while Carmin Fisk’s sixth-place finish on beam helped her get eighth all-around. Anissa Morgan was ninth all-around.

The Level 6 session featured a fifth-place all-around performance from Karolina Perkins and a silver medal on bars with a 9.1 vault by Nicole Bradshaw. Clara Riggle went 4-for-4 with no falls and qualified for the state championships in her first try. Her day included a silver medal on bars in the oldest division, the best Davis Level 6 bars result in many years.

Right behind Riggle was Kyra Mayfield, placing fifth on vault (9.025) and sixth on floor; Cordelia Hsiao, with a personal best all-around total; and Colleen Peterson who showed great potential.

Los Azules soccer

Los Azules, a Davis U16 boys soccer team, got a pair of recent wins, defeating the Roseville Abyss, 6-0, then the Foslom Red Bulls, 3-1.

When the locals hosted Roseville at Playfields Park, they were able to keep the ball on their opponents’ side of the field for most of the game. Part of the reason was great defense being played by Davis’ Ryan Tinsley, Alec Farboud, Thomas Oide, Murtaza Masroor and Mac Meersheidt, who quickly got the ball back to the offensive side.

In addition, Juan Pablo Almanza, Ryan Quinn and Ruben Mendoza keyed a Los Azules passing game that stepped up the scoring. Davis’ Will Stukas had three shots on goal, one of them a header, and Ruben Mendoza eventually scored the first goal with a penalty kick. The second local goal came off of a Rudy Campos corner kick, as Thomas Oide assisted Bryant Murray on a successful header.

Other goals in that contest came from Murtaza Masroor and Anirudh Ramakrishnan.

In beating Folsom, Los Azules got tallies from Oide, Ramakrishnan and Masroor, and strong defense from Otto Nichols, among others.

AC Milan soccer

The Davis AC Milan, a U14 boys soccer team, got back on the winning track with a 2-0 victory over Marin Academy on Saturday.

AC Milan had numerous scoring chances thanks to the work of midfielders Isaiah Alba, Santiago Moreno, Mike Meadows-Smith and Dan Shuman.

Near the end of the first half, Ricky Gonzales drove through the Marin defense and placed a low shot into the net. In the second half, Kyle Cuvelier fed Cameron Peuse who eluded two defenders and made the second Davis goal.

The local defense was paced by the back line of Jorge and Marco Rocha-Figueroa, Ryan Strong, Buddhika Ratnasari, Jovanni Morales and keeper Roberto Ortiz.

Youth basketball

The Davis Hoops Wildcats, a youth basketball program for players from Davis, Dixon, Woodland and the surrounding areas, will hold tryouts later this month.

The first round of workouts, for boys in third through seventh grades and girls in grades 4-7, is set for Oct. 8-14. That will be followed by tryouts for eighth-grade boys beginning Oct. 27.

For all tryout times and locations, visit www.davishoops.com or call Karen at 530-219-8873.

Pee Wee basketball

The city of Davis is now taking registration for its Pee Wee Basketball Program, which is designed for first-time players in first and second grades.

Basketball fundamentals, teamwork, sportsmanship and fun will be emphasized at three sessions, all held on Saturdays at the DHS gym. The cost is $55 per child and includes a T-shirt.

The first session offered is Oct. 13 through Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to noon. Two sessions (10 am. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.) will run Nov. 10 through Dec. 8.
