DAVIS (CBS13) – For the first time in school history, all Davis High spring sports teams are extending their seasons into the postseason.
“By and large what we have is a hardworking group who supports one another and the sky’s the limit,” said track and field coach Spencer Elliott.
The Blue Devils are reaching for the top after a year of coming home with win after win after win, earning spot after spot after spot in playoffs.
“Sports require a lot of commitment, a lot of time,” swimming and water polo coach Doug Wright said. “You’re dealing with a lot of genuinely dedicated kids.”
That dedication is paying off as 13 spring teams take their skills to the postseason championships.
“My goal is to do a 1:01 in the 100 fly,” said swim and water polo team member Haley Wright. “My best ever is a 1:04.”
Wright and her swim teammates will be put to the test in Sac-Joaquin Section Championships, where the Blue Devils have a strong history of success.
“It definitely influenced where I am today, definitely influenced where I’m going to college next year,” said Rachel Johnson.
Rachel will be playing water polo at a little school called Stanford.
Whether it’s at the diamond, around and around the track, taking it to the net, or kicking those goooooooooals, Davis High fans are getting front-row seats to history in the making.
With 65 percent of its students on a sports team, heres no shortage of talent at Davis. Hundreds have been putting in the hours of practice and pain
But really, we had to ask, why so many winners from one school?
“It’s probably lot of good youth programs, good feeder programs, a lot of options when they’re little,” said Blue Devils baseball coach Dan Ariola.
