Ian Fletcher paced the Davis Diamonds boys’ gymnastics team at the Level 5-10 Northern California State Championships last weekend.

Competing in level 9, Fletcher began the event on vault, where his 14.05 was good enough for second place. Fletcher moved on to perform his strongest parallel bars set of the year, scoring a 13.05 to win the state championship. He also took third on floor and second on rings and finished third all-around. Fletcher’s performance was good enough to put him on the Level 9 All-Star team to represent Northern California at the upcoming regional championships.

Davis’ Raymond Long earned his personal-best scores on the rings and parallel bars with clean performances and also landed a powerful and sharply executed 2.5 twisting back layout on the floor exercise. He was one of the only level 9 competitors to complete that move and took eighth with a 12.5. With five strong performances, Long also qualified to regionals.

In level 8, Patrick Long continued to be consistent, logging four top-half finishes in his age group. He qualified to regionals with the help of a strong tucked Tsukahara that was good for fourth place on vault (12.9), along with solid outings on floor and parallel bars. Patrick Long was eighth all-around.

Raleigh Lindberg and Dante Yasui represented Davis Diamonds in their first ever states meet as level 5s. 10-year-old Lindberg had his best finish on the vault, and made a connection bonus on high bar for the first time ever. Yasui, 12, performed six solid routines and vaulted his best front tuck of the year, scoring a 14.85 and taking home the title of level 5 vault state champion.

Youth skiing

After a season of high finishes, Davis’ Cameron Wolfe, an 11-year-old fifth grader at César Chávez Elementary, won the 11-12 age group title at the Tahoe League Ski Race Series.

Wolfe’s squad, the Alpine Meadows ski team, competed with 15 others in six races, with skiers winning points based on their placement in each race. At season’s end, Wolfe finished with the most points and the most wins to take the title.

The Tahoe League, which has been going for more than 25 years, is a developmental alpine ski race league for athletes ages 7 to 17. It provides an opportunity for young skiers to have fun and compete against quality competition, while learning racing skills. Many racers from the Tahoe League go on to compete in USSA-sponsored competitions in the Far West division.
