Congratulations to the boys team for winning the SJS D1 Section Championship!
Ray Oldham had another awesome day. He is your SJS D1 champion in the high jump. He also finished second in the long jump and third in the 200m at 22.39.
Also competing in the high jump, Jason Arendt and Alex Valcarenghi tied for 3rd place.
Bella Bitners is your SJS D1 girl’s discus champ, and Andrew Baum is your SJS boys discus champ! So that’s a DHS sweep in the disc! Way to go Bella and Andrew! Way to go, Coach Matt and Coach Kale too!
Ben Feyrer surprised the triple jump field with a second-place finish. Ben was the highest placing sophomore in the competition by far.
Athlete/Coach Will Siemens cleared 14’6” to take fourth in the pole vault.
The boys 4x4 of Ryan Jaramillo, Bryce Barker, Sam Moody, and Trajan Clark surprised the field by jumping up to 4th place with a season best time of 44.06.
It was an awesome day for Zach Ayers, who completed the very difficult 1600m/3200m double victory. That’s right, Zach is the SJS D1 champ in the 1600m and the 3200m. The 1600m was particularly dramatic, when Zach edged out Jesuit’s Braden King by four one-hundredths of a second. Ryan Mitchell took fourth in that race, ahead of Jesuit’s Brandon Moreno. Like Zach, Ryan doubled back in the 3200 to take 6th.
In the 110 hurdles, Scott Inouye has been battling Pleasant Grove’s Stephen Dahdough all year long. The cast came off, and Scott beat Stephen by seven one thousandths of a second, taking 2nd place overall. Scotty-too-hotty!
Maya Yikilmaz, the only 9th grader in the competition, took second place at 58.72.
The team called upon Clay Ballard to attempt a challenging feat: The 400m/300 hurdle challenge. Clay finished 5th in both.
Emma Vogt took 3rd overall against a talented field in the 200m dash with a pr of 25.68.
The boys 4x4 finished the day with a fourth-place finish. Between trials and finals, we ran all six of our legs: Jake Schaal, Clay Ballard, Lucas Tam, Bryce Barker, Sam Moody, and LJ Dixon. Congrats to all six of these guys.
Additional Masters qualifiers: Cullen Javers in the girls pole vault; Sophia Ramirez in the discus; Sophia Ballard in the triple jump; Chloe Barr, Emma Vogt, Sophia Young, and Maya Yikilmaz in the 4x1 relay; Connor Cougevan in the 1600; Norah Dulaney in the 800; and Lucas Tam in the 800.
The varsity girls division was particularly close. We won by only 7 points! Like we discussed at practice: Every point counts.
Here's what went down at finals:
On the frosh/soph girls side, check out the day that Sierra Babtiste had: 13.08 in the 100m (2nd), 26.62 in the 200m (1st), 16'4.75" in the long jump (1st), and a leg on the 3rd place 4x100m relay. Wow! Izzy Cherry won the 100h and took second in the 300h. Brynn Vikstrom was the high jump champ! The girls put up 173 points over second place Franklin with 105.
In the f/s boys competition, Jefferson Wright and Tomas Ferns went 1-2 in the 1600m. Tim McMahon, Beckett Dolan, and Ryan Yetman went first through third in the 800m - awesome team victory there! The boys 4x4 of Ben Tuttle, Elijah Alexander, Tim McMahon (16/8/4x4 triple), and LJ Dixon ran to emphatic victory. LJ had a great day overall. The boys won192-150 over Jesuit.
Bella Bitners is the varsity girls discus champ! The girls won the meet without any other first place finishes. We had tons of great marks though. Norah Dulaney battled St. Francis' stable of distance girls in the 1600m and 800m. The sprint relays ran great as well, a 48.91 for the 4x1. When a meet comes down to just seven points, every effort is critical. Way to go! The girls won 150 to 143 over rival Saint Francis.
Ray Ray Oldham scored 35 points, including first place finishes in the long jump, high jump, and 200m. Awesome. Jake Schaal, Clay Ballard, Bryce Barker, and Lucas Tam finished off the last race of the day with a victory in te 4x400m relay. Lucas Tam deserves a shot out for the very challenging 16/8/4x4 triple. The boys won 215 to 135 over second place Jesuit.
It was a great day for the Blue Devils at the Delta League Championship Trials!

All athletes and coaches will participate in weekly Covid testing. I suggest that you do this on your own time when it works with your schedule.

Please wear a mask as you arrive at practice. We will wear masks during our announcements and whenever we gather together.
Our official high school season begins in February and runs through the end of May.
Signup information is coming soon.
For now, athletes should make sure they are cleared through DHS Athletics: Click Here. Don't put this off!
In order to minimize injury risk and perform as well as we can, athletes should prepare their bodies for the upcoming season.
For those not participating in winter DHS sports, we will offer preseason conditioning.
Conditioning will begin Monday, 11/29 and will end at the start of our regular season.
We will meet at the DHS Stadium, Monday through Thursday at 4pm. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we will use the weight room following our workout.
Athletes must be cleared through DHS Athletics in order to participate in these conditioning sessions.
Hello Track and Field Athletes, Families, and Supporters,
Saturday’s Delta League Championships (Or “Marauder Invitational” if you prefer) was pure awesomeness. I was so impressed with our Blue Devil performances. I was equally impressed with our team spirit. It was a proud day. Thanks to our parent volunteers! Thanks to those who came out to support!
The girls 4x1 – Sophia, Isabel, Emma, and Chloe – set the tone for sprinters and hurdlers with their convincing victory. The fellas – Ethan, Tai, Brendan, and Josiah – followed up with their season best time. Awesome job, 4x1s!
The 4x4s (best event in track) were inspirational. The girls finished 3rd in a close, hard-fought race. Kate, Emma, Anaya, and Chloe ran to a massive season best of 4:15. We then had to douse Chloe with water and drag her off the finishline so they could start the boys race. Speaking of which, the boys – Jake, Clay, Ben, and Sean – dominated in convincing fashion, running a season best 3:27.
Ray Ray had an outstanding day in the sprints (and the jumps too), running a 100m pr of 11.07 and a 200m pr of 22.81. I believe he would have won the 200m had they not recalled that first start on a timing error. Sam Leveau ran 23.89! How did I not have him sprinting earlier?! I blame Coach Rick for hiding him. Ethan also earned a 200m PR of 24.48. How ‘bout Clay Ballard coming back from a hamstring injury to win the 400! He and his teammate Sean went 1-2 in the 400m. Coach Elliott rejoiced. Jake, Josh, and Sam also had 400m PRs. Josh, as we discussed at our senior celebration, has battled injuries for his entire career. I’m happy to report that Josh ran and PR’d! It was Joshtastic.
Sophia, Chloe, and Isabel battled hard in the fast heat of the 100m. Congrats to Charlotte who knocked two tenths of a second off her 100m PR, running 13.39. Plenty of PRs in the 200m: Chloe, 27.41; Isabel, 27.16; and Kate, 27.14. Awesome times! Emma Vogt, everybody, is your Delta League 400m champ! She ran a big PR of 61.09! Her teammate Kate was right behind her with huge PR of 62.76. And Coach Elliott rejoiced! Props to Elise who had to make a last-second switch to lane 8 (not easy to do), and still ran her second fastest career time.
Gabi finished in a hard-fought 4th in the 100h. Maddie and Dakota both PR’d in the 100h, 17.18 and 17.95 respectively. Both came back to PR again in the 300h, 50.04 and 55.01 respectively. In the same race, Elika PR’d at 53.34. In the previous heat, Sidney PR’d at 56 flat.
The boys did a great job as well. I want to start by mentioning Miguel, who crashed twice. Such is the life of a hurdler. Props to Miguel who always runs hard! Scott and Nolan ran great races, placing 3rd and 5th respectively. Freshman Alex Oldham three-stepped the varsity hurdles and PR’d at 18.10. This is a rare accomplishment for a 9th grader. Ronan PR’d at 18.58. Dean ran an outstanding 43.36 to take 3rd overall in the 300h. His teammates Alex and Scott also PR’d, running 45.20 and 46.14 respectively.
Distance (By Coach Tim)
The distance group had a fantastic day!
In the 3200m every girl got either a season PR or lifetime PR. Abby Carroll took 2nd place and went under 12:00 for the first time ever, running 11:52. Grace Dwyer got a 46 second PR to run 12:20. Corrine DeJong improved her seasonal best by 14 seconds and ran 12:29. Anna Kelly improved her lifetime best by 47 seconds and ran 13:38. Jessica Oslund got a 14 second PR and ran 13:45. Elizabeth Young got a seasonal best improving her time by 27 seconds and ran 15:13.
Abby, Grace and Corinne all doubled up and came back later in the day to run the 1600m. Abby ran 5:41, Grace ran 5:43 and Corinne ran 5:57.
The guys 3200m was outstanding as well. Zach Ayers and Ansel Tucker went 1-2 with Zach tying his PR of 9:08 and Ansel getting a new PR of 9:12. Luca Maes got a seasonal best of 10:41. Luke Rashid ran 11:03 and Gavin Rashid ran 11:41 for a new PR.
The Guys 1600m was an incredible race to watch. Davis went 1-5. Diego Perez won with a new PR of 4:10, which is now the second fastest mile time ever for our track program. It then continued with Zach Ayers getting 2nd, Ansel Tucker taking 3rd, Ryan Mitchell in 4th and Connor Cougevan in 5th. Connor ran 4:32 which is not only a new PR but also the fastest mile time ever by a freshman at Davis High. Elian Malessy got a really nice PR of 2 seconds to run 4:51. Carlos-Miguel Campos and Cody Winsor finished right next to each other, both running 5:01, and Thomas Doherty ran 5:12.
This was a truly great day for us and the perfect way to end the season. Go BLUE DEVILS - DELTA LEAGUE CHAMPS!!!
800m runners (By Coach Elliott – It’s 11:14am, which means Willie is still sleeping)
Ben (2:06) and Sam (2:14) both PR’d! That’s a double PR for Sam by the way. Cooper ran a courageous race is a very fast heat.
Amie (2nd in 2:25), Anaya (3rd in 2:25), and Maddie (2:40) all PR’d in the girls 800, which was one of my favorite races of the day. This group has worked so hard!
High Jump (By Coach Lon)
Ray Oldham won the boys event with a 6'2" clearance and then had a super close miss at 6'5". Senior Nolan Bitners capped off his DHS track career with a 6'0" jump, which was good for second place. Eli Ishikawa nearly cleared 6 get as well, but in the end settled for 3rd at 5'10". Jacob Schall jumped a 5'6" meet PR for 5th. Freshman Dominic Nider continued his strong late-season form with a 5'4 jump for 6th (not to mention an unofficial clearance of 5'5" later in the day).
On the ladies side, Shay Hawkes came up clutch with a third attempt clearance at 5'4" to get the win. Sophia Ballard continued to show promise with a clean sheet performance of 4'8" to tie for 4th.
Throws (By Coach Matt)
The highlights from throws yesterday are as follows:
Michael Perez had an 8 foot PR in disc, throwing 118’3”. He finished 8th overall in the discus.
Iryna had an 11 foot PR in the disc, throwing 80’3”.
Bella Bitners threw 95” in disc, an 8 inch PR and enough for her to finish 6th overall…as a freshman. My money is on her for league champ next year.
Nika Edsen finished 3rd overall in discus, throwing over 104 feet.
Andrew Baum PR’d in shot put by over a foot, throwing 42’3.5”. He placed 6th overall in shot.
On his last throw of his last meet, Tyler Venner uncorked a 50’1.5” bomb to win boys shot put by over 7 feet. That’s also a 2.5 foot PR. Kale and I were so excited, we nearly exploded. I woke up this morning still fired up about that last throw, much to the annoyance of the poor barista at Starbucks who wanted nothing more than for me to stop going on about it lol.
I can’t tell you how proud we are of our throwers. They worked incredibly hard all season, and on Saturday, they competed like champions.
Is it too early to get excited about next season? No, Coach Matt, it’s not too early.
Horizontal Jump (By Coach Sac. Spelling corrections by Coach Elliott)
The Davis jump crew came out and performed well. The crew won all four horizontal jumps yesterday. The lady jumpers were led by lily Gieschen winning the triple jump, Caitlin Mac Millen winning the long jump.
On the men's side, Dean Fulks won a close completion with Tai Hackett. They took first and second in the Triple Jump. The Long jump was won by Ray Olmsted (Oldham).
It was a very successful year by all of the jumpers.
I want to thank Tai Hackett and Lily Gieschen for their team leadership in the horizontal jumps.
I want to thank all of the horizontal jumpers for their dedication and hard work to make this season a great success.
Horizontal Jumps Part II (By Coach Spencer)
Our girls jumpers swept the top 3 in the long jump - both Caitlin (16' 9") and Lily (16' 3.5") PR'd. Coach Sac and I were excited to see Sophia Ballard place 5th despite only about two weeks of coaching.
Lily also won the girls' triple jump (36'), and it's always awesome to see 4 of the 6 total athletes wear Davis blue. Special shout out to Melody Ho, who worked her butt off all season and PR'd on Saturday with 31' 0.5".
Ray won the boys long jump with a PR of 20' 5.5", with Davis snagging 6 of the top 9. Very proud of Dean Fulks, who had a huge triple jump PR to win with 38' 6.5". He was one of 8 Blue Devils to place in the top 9, including all of the top 3 (along with Tai and Parker). Also nice to see Julian finish 6th with a big PR at 36' 5".
Pole Vault (You know how good I am at conveying the nuances of pole vault)
Will finished third overall with a jump of 13’6”. As only a knowledgeable vault coach like me would understand, this was as an impressive mark considering how injury forced Will to take a very short approach. Sam and Sean both vaulted 11’6; Nolan and Lukas both went 10’6.
Gabi was second overall at 10’0. Maddie was 7th at 9’. Rachel, 8’; Greta, 7’6’; Ahma and Sidney, both 7’. What an awesome year for our vaulters!
Props to Nolan, Sam, Maddie, Gabi, and Sidney for bouncing back and forth between pole vault and their numerous other events. Very impressive!

The final dual meet of the season was outstanding.

Zach Ayers ran the 3200m of his life and closed a giant gap to almost catch the winner of the race. Zach finished 3rd and earned an incredible PR of 9:08.40
Athletes of the Meet are Abby Carroll and Ryan Mitchell
Abby Carroll doubled up and PRed in both of her events. She got 3rd in the 1600m with a new PR of 5:39.22. If that wasn’t impressive enough she came back and took 2nd in her heat of the 3200m with a 30+ second PR Abby ran 12:08.17.

The Jumps meet versus Bella Vista represents our first track and field competition in over a year. It was a beautiful day, and it was wonderful to see our athletes compete.
We had plenty of excellent marks including 6'4" for Ray in the high jump and 19'5.75" for Clay in the long jump! Awesome.
Even though we are technically four teams (frosh/soph boy, frosh/soph girls, varsity boys, varsity girls), we only have three total coaching stipends to use. The parcel tax funds a single class 1 coaching stipend and two class 2 coaching stipends (Thank you, Parcel Tax).
We receive no financial support from the district for coaching stipends, equipment, travel, or anything else.
We have to fundraise for the remainder of our operational costs, which, by definition, are necessary for our sport to function.
Projected Expenses based on previous years:
xcstats roster builder $195.00
Hiring a starter for our home meets: $1,500.00
Booster paid coaches: $13,410
Sub costs for teachers who coach: $1,514.59
Hotels and travel to State Meet: estimate based on years past, $2,000
Meet entrance fees: estimate based on years past, $2,000.
Equipment of the sport: estimate based on years past and current needs (Replacement finishline computer, tarps for the long/triple pits, high jump standards): $5,000.00
Purchasing uniforms for those who can’t afford them: estimate based on years past, $600.00
Banquet Facility Use: $150.00
Your donation is optional, but we will put it to good use. If every family donates, we cover our costs for the season. The suggested donation for each family is $165.00.
Make sure checks are made out to "Davis HS Track and Field." Athletes can deliver checks to Coach Elliott at practice.

The store is now closed...
Coach Elliott may have some surpluss items. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit L-25 during lunch.
Coach Elliott ordered some extra uniforms. If you weren't able to order one, you can get one from Coach Elliott when they arrive.
This roster does not include people who were injured and have not yet tried out. This roster does not include winter sports athletes. In other words, not seeing your name here does not necessarily mean you have been cut.
In some cases, people made the roster in multiple events:
A long jumper/sprinter, for example, is an excellent track and field combination. We would expect these athletes to be both jumpers and sprinters this year.
A distance runner/thrower, however, might not work. Some of you may see multiple events that aren't the best combinations. This just means that over the next couple of weeks, we'll need to figure out what will be best for you going forward.
There will be a meeting for all athletes and parents this Wednesday, 2/13 in the DHS Library. The meeting will begin at 6pm (after practice). We will talk about uniforms, other fun apparel, the budget, fundraising, expecations, policies, etc.
I have learned over my fifteen years of coaching that there are many ways, aside from athletic ability alone, for athletes to contribute to a team. If you do not make the roster, but you believe you have the ability to make this team better, you may consider applying for an extended tryout. The application involves an interview, a written personal statement, and a letter of recommendation. In this extended tryout, we would be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate the qualities you tell us you will bring to the program.
Congratulations to all on your hard work this week. The coaches understand the physical, mental, and emotional stress that comes with a tryout process. We are proud of you all.
Over the weekend, we will post the roster here. Additionally, we will email each family explaining your status.
Tryouts will continue next week, only for athletes coming out from WINTER SPORTS and those who were INJURED and could not tryout last week.
Here's what you should do on your own:
Either 30minute easy run, followed by drills and strides, core
Warmup, drills, 15 easy strides, core

If you have any questions, please email Coach Elliott email@example.com
10-12 graders who missed the meeting: There will be an additional meeting on on Tuesday, 1/15 during lunch in room L-25.
This form indicates your intent to tryout for this year's team. This form along with your athletic clearance email are due to Coach Elliott by February 1.
If you are a student on the Davis High campus, and you missed last Tuesday's informational meeting, there will be an abridged version in room L-25 at lunch on Wednesday, 1/24. Make sure you plan your schedules so that you can attend.
This is a meeting for all athletes and parents interested in trying out for the 2019 team.
NOTE: THE CONTENT OF THE MEETING WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THAT OF PREVIOUS SEASONS. ALL STUDENT-ATHLETES, NEW OR RETURNING, SHOULD ATTEND.
1. Get cleared for participation! Don't wait! Athletic Clearance is done on-line. THIS MUST BE DONE PRIOR TO ANY TRACK AND FIELD PARTICIPATION, BEFORE OR DURING THE SEASON. Please get this done now. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to schedule those physical exams. The DHS Athletics Website has information on this process and links to the necessary documentation. Click Here!
2. We will have an informational meeting in January, where the coaches will lay out the requirements and expections for trying out for and participating on this year's team. When we have a specific location/time, we will post it here.
3. Have an off-season workout plan. To those not participating in a winter sport: Preparation should begin now. Wating until February to begin training will result in poor performance, a higher likelihood of injury, and a generally unpleasant experience. The Davis Community Track and Field Club is offering a Winter Track program designed specifically to prepare athletes for the upcoming season. Click here to register. Email Coach Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
