The Davis High club roller hockey program wrapped up its season on Sunday as the varsity-level squad completed an undefeated season with an SIHL tournament championship in Woodland.

At the tourney, Caleb Hermle netted seven goals for the Blue Devils, with Danny Kumata and Joe Blakewell adding six each. The trio also paced DHS in assists with Kumata’s six, Hermle’s five and Blakewell’s three.

In addition, Tyler Schafer played strong offense for the locals, finishing with two goals and handing out three assists, while Ricky Pacciorini contributed two goals and two assists.

Ryan Kowta (one goal and an assist) and Daniel Rooney excelled for the Devil defense, in front of goalie Nicholas Leacox, who saved more than 98 percent of the shots he saw and allowed just one goal in four games.

The DHS JV-level team squad finished 1-2 at the Woodland tournament, with Dylan Lee scoring a team-best five goals and adding an assist. Other offensive contributions came from Sam Blakewell (two goals and three assists), Jack Shields (one goal, three assists), Daniel Jenkins (goal, assist), Thomas Witham (one goal), Zachary Creinin and Cole Skoog.

Brandon Pacciorini played strong defense for the Blue Devils throughout the tournament, while also supporting DHS offensively, and local Max Muller turned away 27 shots in three games.

Davis Little League

It’s that time again!

With not a cloud predicted in the sky for this weekend, Davis Little League is conducting tryouts Saturday and Sunday — then again Wednesday evening.

Tryouts are for AAA and Majors divisions, so 9-year-olds need to attend only if they want to be considered for the AAA draft, according to DLL officials.

Special times are assigned, based on a player’s last name. On Saturday, the schedule for both American and National divisions looks like this:

* Noon-1 p.m.: 12-year-olds and spring-returning 13-year-olds (A to K).

*1-2 p.m.: All ages (A-E).

*2-3 p.m.: All ages (F-K).

Sunday:

*Noon-1 p.m.: 12-year-olds and spring-returning 13-year-olds (L-Z).

*1-2 p.m.: All ages (L-R).

* 2-3 p.m.: All ages (S-Z).

Wednesday:

6-9 p.m.: All remaining players.

Check-in times are just before the scheduled tryouts, which take place at the Little League Complex at F Street and Covell Boulevard.

Registration goes through Wednesday and can be done online.

Teeball cost is $130, while Farm, AA, AAA and Majors is $185 and Juniors is $280.

Meanwhile, there is still room at the Davis Little League Baseball Bootcamp, run by UC Davis players and coaches Jan. 27-30.

Farm and AA players go from 4 to 6 p.m. with the upper-division athletes working out from 6 to 8 p.m. Space is limited to 25 in each division.

UCD Director of Baseball Operations Jimmy Meuel will oversee the coaching.

Open only to DLL-registered kids, the camp will “run through the basics to shake out the cobwebs and help your player prepare for the season,” according to the organization website at www.davislittleleague.org.

Batting, throwing and fielding will be covered and the league promises a player-to-coach ratio of nine-to-one.

The cost is $60 and signups are being taken at the three tryout dates.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season, which begins Sunday. The Starlets offer an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning on Sunday, the Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

For more information, email [email protected].

Winter water polo

The Davis Water Polo Club’s winter session continues this week at Schaal Aquatics Center on the UCD campus.

The sessions run Tuesday and Thursday evenings with the younger group — third through eighth graders — taking the pool at 6 p.m. before the high-school aged players go at 7:30 p.m.

For more information, contact coach Jamey Wright at [email protected] or 530-758-1234.

Baseball academy tryouts

The Davis Baseball Academy will conduct player assessments/tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High School varsity field.

Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level of competition at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level.

Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as other college and high school coaches and pro players and scouts. If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled.

Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com.

For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or [email protected].
