The Davis Diamonds youth gymnastics team had a great day at the Harvest Classic in Roseville on Sunday as the Junior Olympic Level 3 crew won gold.

The rest of the Davis squad posted good individual performances, with Alexandra Lee winning the vault, beam, floor and the Level 3 Juniors All-Around. Among older gymnasts, Alannah Griesemer won the bars; Haylee Aquino captured the vault, floor and all-around; Maren McGuire — who qualified for the state championships — took first in the senior vault; and Emma Rebhun won the bars.

At Level 4, Brenna Peterson won the vault and all-around, for the second time in two meets, and teammate Vivian Lee took first place on floor and qualified for the state meet.

In addition, Colleen Peterson won Level 5 beam and Bethany McElhern qualified for the Level 3 state championships.

At Level 3, where most Diamonds are competing for the first time, Sofia Patriquin was fourth place and 11th in the youngest division all-around. Among Juniors, Anissa Morgan was third all-around — behind Alexandra Lee and Griesemer — followed by McElhern (fourth), Charlotte Lee-Smith (fifth), Sarah Bennetts (sixth) and Sophia Koehler (seventh). Ava Guistino finished ninth all-around, Charlotte Stevens was 10th and Fiona Adamczewski took 11th.

In the older division, strong performances from Aquino, Rebun and McGuire were complemented by Kathleen Sheridan (fifth all-around), Lily Rigor (sixth) and Chloe Nelson (eighth).

In Level 4 Senior A, Brenna Peterson’s vault score was the second-highest of the session regardless of age, while Carmin Fisk (bronze on bars) and Isabel Lavallee tied for ninth overall. Katie Borowsky (second on beam) was 11th all-around.

Vivian Lee’s good showing in Junior B was joined by Reyna Shauman (second on bars and beam), who took fourth all-around, while Aubery Watts (second on vault) finished eighth in the all-around among the youngest Level 4s.

At Level 5, Sonia Sutton (bronze on bars) was sixth all-around, just ahead of Davis teammate Colleen Peterson, whose beam win helped her take eighth all-around. Ianthe Pretorius improved to 10th all-around and, in the younger division, Marishke Pretorius (second on floor) was fifth all-around.

Hitaways softball

The Davis Hitaways, a 10U girls softball team, swept the Nevada Country Aftershock in a NorCal Girls Fastpitch doubleheader last weekend.

In the opener, Maya Zingaro, La’Siya Earnest and Veronica Roe all contributed big hits to lead the locals to a 10-6 win, while Zoe West, Anika Fisk and Zora Nichols used strong base-running to score runs. Madison Rutherford earned her third complete-game victory of the season, striking out eight and getting defensive help from Amalia Myo-Flores, Alyssa Waterson and Hazel Anderson.

The Hitaways won the second contest, 11-8, with good pitching from Zingaro (five punchouts in two innings) and West (six K’s in two innings) leading the way. Zingaro, Rutherford and Earnest smacked two hits apiece, and Roe and Shelby Harry each had RBIs. In Game 2, the Davis defense was led by Kayla Chin and Myo-Flores.

Thunder softball

The Davis Thunder, a 10U girls softball team, dropped both games of a NorCal Fastpitch doubleheader to the Carmichael Bone Crushers last weekend.

The locals lost their first game, 16-3, despite hits by Jordan Zuniga, Bella Hyder and Tara Reddy and two runs scored by Halle Gabriel. Davis pitchers Bella Contreras and Stevie Spencer, along with Heather Breckner all found ways to get on base.

Carmichael then needed everything it had to edge the Thunder, 11-7, in Game 1. Gabriel, Hyder and Reddy each went 2-for-2, while Contreras added a hit for Davis. Katianna Higgins drew a walk to help the local offense and Hyder struck out one and went the distance in the circle.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls soccer team, came from behind to beat Woodland, 5-2, on Saturday.

Ainsley Carrol started off the local scoring with a first-half tally, however, Woodland struck back twice to put the Stampede behind 2-1 at halftime.

After the break, Jordan Davis finished a breakaway — with an assist from Anne Ayotte — to tie it, then assisted Allie Belafsky on the go-ahead goal. The final two Stampede scores came off assists from Lily Bryne, who set up Davis and Carrol.

Heat soccer

The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, lost 1-0 to the Turlock Tornados last weekend, in a game that was scoreless until the final minute.

Early on, great keeper play from Davis’ Vanessa Arellano stifled several Turlock attempts off corner kicks, while Kristin Ward, Melissa Teuber, Jaha McClean, Sofia Evanoff, Kaitlyn Wagner and Sophia Hernandez had scoring chances for the Heat.

Davis controlled most of the second half with good defense and ball movement and goalie Christina Roeckl-Navazio made a key save.

But, with less than a minute to go, the Tornados earned a free kick and made the most of it with the winning goal.
