Shining at last weekend’s U.S. Southwest Regional Championship regatta at Lake Natoma, the River City Rowing Club Juniors qualified a trio of boats to the national championship event.

It marks the sixth straight season that RCRC has sent three entries to the U.S. championships, this year set for June 13-15 at Lake Natoma.

The feat is even more impressive since the locals competed against 618 crews in 36 events at a Southwest Regional that is arguably the toughest in the U.S.

The 2014 event featured warm and windy conditions, which made for tough waters — but the RCRC squad was up to the challenge.

RCRC’s men’s lightweight double sculls team — made up of Myles Cannings of Davis and Cody Crawford (Elk Grove) — earned a silver medal and a trip to nationals, as did the local men’s double sculls duo.

The women’s crew of River City earned a bronze medal in the women’s varsity four with coxswain, marking the first RCRC coxed boat ever to qualify for nationals. Davis rowers Hannah Siemens and Katie Descheemaeker are part of that crew.

River City Rowing Club, in West Sacramento, and offers programs for juniors (eighth through 12th grades), middle schoolers and both competitive and recreational adults. Learn-to-row programs are offered all summer to introduce the sport of crew to interested athletes (both teens and adults). For more information, visit www.rivercityrowingclub.org.

Junior golf

Seven of Davis’ top junior golfers participated in the recent North California Junior Tour Veritas World Junior 2014 qualifier at Chuck Corica Golf Course in Alameda.

Despite the tough, windy conditions, four locals advanced to the three-day junior world tournament, which will be contested at the Brookside Golf Course (Pasadena) in July.

Davis’ Emily Masiel won her division with an 85, while Sam Yamauchi (74) and Griffin Long (78) took second in their respective age groups. The final local qualifier was Patrick Cajandig, whose 79 was good for seventh in his division.

Other Davis golfers who played well but missed the cut were Preston Walchli, Andrew Arnheiter and Keaton Mohar.

Knights U15 lacrosse

The Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team dropped a close 7-5 decision to Walnut Creek in Saturday’s regular-season finale, but still earned a No. 3 seed in the upcoming playoffs.

The Warriors forced 20 turnovers to get revenge for a pair of losses to Davis earlier this season.

Knights keeper Wade Matern was busy as Walnut Creek peppered him with 19 shots on goal, but Matern came up with 12 saves.

On the other end of the field, the locals managed 30 attempts, 10 of which were on goal, leading to Nathan Soeth’s hat trick and one goal each from Casey Aikawa and Eli Veazey.

Knights U13 lacrosse

The Davis Knights’ U13 boys lacrosse Blue team capped a successful regular season with a dominating 9-1 win over rival Granite Bay Silver.

The locals now head to the playoffs with a 13-2 record, including 8-1 in conference, and with a No. 8 ranking in Northern California.

In beating Granite Bay, Davis was paced by goalie Gerad Christian-Lichtenhan, who made seven saves, and Tanner McNamara’s hat trick. Other scoring came from Justin Qvisgaard (two), Cayden Hotaling (two), Hudson Garland and Nick Mahoney.

The Knights also got strong contributions from midfielder Corbin Russo, Sean Smith, Charlie Streeb, Evan Mack, Morgan Heard and Stanly Topete, and tough defense was played by Davis’ Kyle Difuntorum, Logan McNamara and Lucas Griffiths.

Davis Water Polo Club

Davis Water Polo Club’s 14U girls team went 5-1 to take second place at the prestigious San Diego County Cup tournament early this month.

Wins over Orange Country United (5-4), Saddle Back El Toro (18-7), Pacific of San Diego (9-4), Corona Extreme (8-4) and Lamorinda (8-7) sent Davis to the championship game, where it fell, 6-1, to Southern California Water Polo Club.

Leading the way for DWPC were all-tournament selections Sara Valdes-Chabot and Scout Brown, while other contributions came from Sofia Dolan, Rachel Redman, Emily Tapio, Reese Oliver, Avery Warhover, Brooke Doten, Faith Cerussi, Kimberly Tiss and Shayna Amster.

The club is now offering three summer sessions for beginning boys and girls in first through eighth grades. The workouts at UCD’s Schaal Aquatics center run May 20-June 12, June 16-July 3 and July 7-July 24.
