Davis Diamonds gymnasts Cordelia Hsiao and Clara Riggle, both Davis High sophomores, tumbled to top results at last weekend’s Junior Olympic Level 7 Championships in Lemoore.

Making her debut at Level 7, Riggle started the meet on floor, earning a personal-best 9.35 for the bronze in that event. Riggle also took fifth place on vault (9.05) to help her finish fifth all-around.

Hsiao, meanwhile, had the meet of her career, using a dynamic handspring vault to earn silver with a 9.175. A steady beam performance was good for sixth place as Hsiao ended up in 10th all-around, one spot ahead of teammate Kate Miller. Also strong on vault, Miller’s 9.05 on that event put her in eighth, matching her placing on bars.

The youngest Davis competitor, Karolina Perkins, competed in the Child Division, where her execution on balance beam earned a 9.025 for sixth place. A 9.2 on floor helped Perkins to 12th all-around with a 35.1, the highest score of any local gymnast.

Other Diamonds to shine included Kyra Mayfield (12th on vault, 16th all-around) in the youngest seniors and two gymnasts — Kyra Lee and Nicole Bradshaw — in the Junior Division. Lee’s high-flying vault earned fourth place (9.25), and she finished 11th on beam and 15th all-around, while Bradshaw was 13th on beam and 16th all-around.

“Twelve months ago, Riggle, Hsiao, Perkins, Mayfield, Lee and Bradshaw had just finished Level 5, and now they have been successful at Level 7,” said Davis coach Hilde Aune. “They have had an extraordinary development and have come a long way thanks to their talent, dedication and countless hours in the gym.”

Davis club rugby

In an exciting affair on Saturday, the Davis Blue Devil Rugby Club’s Bronze team held off Kennedy, 38-35.

The locals not only battled back from an early 20-7 deficit, but won despite their opponents running in more tries (7-6). Michal Goodison’s kicking made the difference for Davis as the freshman converted 4-of-6 from a variety of angles.

With some players missing and others injured, the Blue Devils pieced together a lineup with backs Goodison, Anthony Pedroia and Oscar Sepulveda all powering over the Cougars to set up scores. In addition, Davis scrum-half Tristan Tadano played his typical crafty game, nabbing two tries on quick-tap penalties.

David Kim, Joe Lanoue, Ben Gore and Craig Neustrom each hit the rucks hard to set up Robert Campos for the first Devil score. Later, Dean Boswell took a quick offload from Quinn Williams and raced in under the posts to open the second-half scoring.

Williams had two scores of his own before Tadano finished off Kennedy with a final try.

The Davis teams play two matches next week with the Bronze squad taking on Dixon on Friday (6 p.m.) and the Silver crew facing Rio Linda on Saturday (10 a.m.) at the UC Davis field.
