Davis Diamonds sent 39 gymnasts to the Judge’s Cup in Rancho Cordova last weekend to compete with 800 rivals from throughout Northern California in the first meet of the season. For 14 of the Diamonds gymnasts, it was their first competitive meet.

Leading the way for Davis was Alexandra Lee, who won the gold medal in the Level 3 vault event with a score of 9.3, and Aubrey Watts, who vaulted to gold at Level 4. Alannah Griesemer also won a gold, on the floor, to help lead the Diamonds’ Level 3 team to second overall.

In the lower age group, Lee added silver medals in bar and floor and placed fourth on the beam to earn the all-around silver medal (35.45) and qualify for the state championships in November. In addition, Bethany McElhern finished fourth on the bars and floor to take bronze in the all-around and Anissa Morgan’s 9.05 was good for fourth place on vault, which, combined with her floor bronze, put her in seventh all-around.

In the intermediate age group, Griesemer added a beam silver to her floor gold on her way to capturing bronze in the all-around. Emma Rebhun won vault silver (9.025), earned bronze on bars and fifth all-around, while Charlotte Lee-Smith won the vault bronze (9.0), took fourth on floor and was sixth all-around.

In the older age group, Haylee Aquino earned an impressive 9.175 for her vault, a 9.05 on bars and a 9.025 on floor to take second all-around (35.875) and earn a state meet berth. Another silver went to Lily Rigor (beam) as she finished fourth all-around, one spot ahead of teammate Kathleen Sheridan, who was fourth on floor.

Other Diamonds Level 3 gymnasts Sofia Patriquin, Sophia Koehler, Anabelle Navarro, Sarah Bennetts, Fiona Adamcsewski, Charlotte Stevens, Ava Guistino, Reese Quick, Chloe Nelson and Maren McGuire each had brilliant moments in their first competition.

In her first Level 4 competition, Davis’ Vivian Lee scored a 9.15 on bars and 9.1 on beam for seventh all-around. Watts, also in her first competition, used her vault win to take ninth all-around.

Among the older gymnasts, Reyna Shauman and Maeve Kelly were strong on bars, earning 9.05 each. The Diamonds dominated the meet, with Shauman, Kelly, Katie Borowsky, Carmin Fisk, Julia Miyamoto and Isabel Lavallee taking the 8-13 spots in the all-around to lead the team to a third-place finish.

Davis sent three gymnasts to a harsh Level 5 competition that included four of the top teams in California. Marishke Pretorius (10th all-around), Sonia Sutton (11th) and Ianthe Pretorius (15th) all showed skill, with Marishke Pretorius qualifying for the state championships on her first try.

Heat soccer

The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, defeated the Stockton Storm, 3-1, last weekend.

Renee Schuman and Brooke Rosenblum pressed early with shots on the Storm goal and Madison Nicholas finally broke through for Davis off a corner kick from Melissa Teuber. Hannah Thompson tallied later to give the Heat a 2-0 halftime lead.

The Storm snuck in a goal early in the second half, but Kristen Ward fed Jaha McClean to put the locals back up by two.

Great defensive efforts by Davis’ Kaitlyn Wagner, Alexia Moore, Emily King, Suleikha Sutter, Annie Leck and Olivia Haass protected keeper Vanessa Arellano, who also performed well.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls soccer team, routed the Sac United, 6-1, in Davis last weekend.

Jordan Davis started the scoring by volleying in a corner from Anne Ayotte, who scored herself later in the half to give the locals a 2-0 lead at the break.

In the second half, Davis scored her second goal with an assist from McKenna Lutzker. Sacramento then got on the board with a tally, but the Stampede kept the offensive pressure on as Sky Shaffer drilled one into the back of the net.

Later, Lutzker and Mattie combined for another goal and Vanessa Carrasco was assisted by Grace Barger for the final Davis tally.

Davis Water Polo Club

When United States Water Polo Inc. announced its 2013 Academic All Americans recently, the Davis Water Polo Club landed 21 of its 10th- through 12th-grade athletes on the list. The figure placed the DWPC fifth among all clubs in the entire country.

To make the ranking, a student-athlete had to have a GPA of 3.6 or better and players who had GPAs of 4.0 or better were recognized as Outstanding Achievers. Davis had 15 athletes — Haley Blackwell, Alexander Borowsky, Sam Burke, Nicholas Carniglia, Alicia Demaree, Garrett Fisk, Graham Fullerton, Lauren Owens, Bryan Poole, Connor Stapleton, Jeff Stark, Shelby Stender, Spencer Talbot, Katelyn Thompson and Eileen Walsh — on that prestigious list.

Also honored from DWPC were Ben Diamant, Valente Dolcini, Monica Ferrera, Evan Moya, Bradley Nicholson and Colby Stapleton.

Fall lacrosse events

This month, the Davis Lacrosse Association is presenting an introductory clinic as well as its annual Fall Ball camps.
