Six junior high cross country teams, featuring 198 athletes, concluded their seasons last week at the Yolo County Athletic League championships on a 1.6-mile course in Dixon.

The top four finishers in the girls race — eighth-grader Hana Du (9:19) and seventh-graders Maya Doms, Annie Mitchell and Ruthie Mitchell — all are students at Emerson Junior High, who took first place among girls teams. Holmes was third.

On the boys side, Sam Blakewell, an eighth-grader at Emerson, won the race in 8:41 and was followed by Harper seventh-grader Eric Lengtat in second. Perry Gregg and Kai Taylor, both eighth-graders at Emerson, took fourth and fifth. After going to the tie-breaker to determine the boys team standings, Emerson was second. Holmes took third place.

Hitaways softball

The Davis Hitaways, a 10U softball team, moved into first place and pushed its NorCal Girls Fastpitch regular-season winning streak to six games by sweeping a doubleheader from the Roseville Rockets.

In the opener, a 10-7 local victory, Madison Rutherford pitched her first no-hitter, striking out six and allowing just three earned runs. The performance was helped by strong defense from Amalia Myo-Flores and Hazel Anderson, while Annika Fisk, Zoe West and Myo-Flores each knocked in a run. Rutherford added five RBIs to help her own cause.

The nightcap was a more offensive affair as the Hitaways pounded out 15 hits on their way to a 17-16 extra-innings win. Anderson, Zingaro, La’Siya Earnest and Rutherford each had doubles and combined to score more than half of Davis’ runs, and Veronica Roe, Allysa Waterson, Kayla Chin and Shelby Harry each added multiple hits and runs scored.

Pitcher West struck out six and got help from a local defense that threw out three base runners in the final inning.

Thunder softball

The Davis Thunder, a 10U softball team, swept the American River Extreme in a NorCal Girls Fastpitch doubleheader on Sunday at Oakview Park in Orangevale.

In the 15-10 opener, Lauren Lee, Heather Breckner, Stevie Spencer and Halle Gabriel scored three runs apiece for Davis, Bella Contreras scored a pair and Jordan Zuniga had one run. Spencer (two strikeouts) went the distance in the circle for the win with the help of strong defense from Contreras, Mia Mark and Bella Hyder.

Davis took an early lead in the next game, then held off a late Extreme rally to prevail, 14-12. Gabriel (2-for-2) scored three runs while Tara Reddy, Spencer (two runs) and Zuniga (three runs) added hits. Hyder scored a pair of runs and threw a complete game with five strikeouts.

Heat soccer

The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, tied El Diablo Shockwave, 2-2, last weekend.

A slow start by the locals led to a 1-0 Diablo lead, but great goalie work from Davis’ Chris Roeckl-Navazio (three saves) helped limit the damage.

After halftime, the Heat’s Brooke Rosenblum cranked up the offensive pressure and local defenders Annie Leck, Alexia Moore, Vanessa Arellano, Madison Nicholas and Melissa Teuber held off the Shockwave until Sofia Hernandez found the equalizer off an assist from Olivia Haass.

Following another score by El Diablo, Haass got a pass from Hernandez, outmaneuvered the keeper and chipped the ball into the net. Despite late shots from Sofia Evanoff, Mikayla Vang and Suleikha Sutter, Davis couldn’t find the game-winner.

Legacy Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls team, logged a win and tie in weekend action as it faced Placer United and Loomis, respectively, in NorCal fall league play.

Davis’ Sophie Karperos set the stage Saturday with her relentless defense as she stonewalled every attempt by Placer to penetrate the locals’ back line. Stampede strikers Ainsley Carrol and Jordan Davis got two goals each to make it 4-0 at the half. After getting hammered in the box, Stampede midfielder Lily Byrne converted the penalty to make it 5-0. Despite a late goal by Placer, Davis striker Mattie Eaton hustled to beat the defense to the ball to end the game 6-1.

Sunday’s hard-fought stalemate again featured solid Stampede defense, this time starring the ever speedy and composed Yasmeen Dmeiri, who repeatedly frustrated Loomis’ entire front line. Down most of the game, 0-1, J. Davis served a through ball to striker Allie Belafsy, who was able to outrun the defense and the keeper to tap in the equalizer.

Girls basketball camp

There are still spots available for the annual Lady Blue Devil basketball camp, set for Saturday and Sunday at Davis High.

Open to fourth- through eighth-grade girls, the camp will emphasize fundamentals and individual skill development, according the DHS head coach Karen Foster.

Workouts run from noon to 4 p.m. each day and the camp is limited to 100 girls. Each participant will receive a T-shirt with the fee of $60.

Players will be divided into groups based on age and skill levels.

Foster says when the girls have finished the camp, they will be able to dribble with either hand, jump-shot stop under control, understand man-to-man defense, pass with both hands and learn proper shooting mechanics.

For more information or to register, call Foster at 530-400-9768.

Spooky fun run

Get Fit Davis is inviting local runners to get their Halloween fun started early this year, and get some exercise while doing it.

The Spooky Fun Run, set for Sunday, Oct. 27, will feature 5K and 10K races along with a quarter-mile Spooky Sprint for kids. After the Spooky Sprint goes off at 4 p.m., the longer races will begin at 4:30 p.m.
