Golf tourney for Davie basketball programs   

The Davie girls and boys basketball programs will hold a golf tournament at Colin Creek on May 11 at 9 a.m. The cost is $40 for individual players and $160 for four-man teams. Contact girls coach Lindsey Adams or boys coach Josh Pittman at school at 336-751-5905.   

DLL Golf Tournament May 10

Davie Little League will hold its second golf tournament fundraiser for the new Challenger Field at Pudding Ridge on May 10. The tee times will be 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. The cost is $80 per player or $320 for four-person teams. Lunch will be served for all players between noon-2.

DLL is raising funds to build its own turf field. The goal is to raise $500,000 to give those with special needs and disabilities the opportunity to play and have fun for free.

“It’s a huge thing to have,” Secretary and Fundraiser Coordinator Leigh Shenberger told WXII. “They have their own event, their own team, where they can feel included and feel like they get to do all of the things that every other child gets to do.”

“They miss out on that if we don’t provide that for them,” said DLL President Jerry Riddle, whose 17-year-old daughter Sarah has Asperger’s Syndrome. “It just gives her a chance to compete and spend an hour with her friends every week. It’s a top part of her week. Every Monday she looks forward to it.”

• Jaylene Rivera poured in four goals and Davie’s JV soccer team punished visiting Parkland 9-0 on April 12. It was the first win for the War Eagles (1-3-1), who were playing their first game in 23 days.

Ava Hale and Renna Margaret Welborn had two goals each, while Fuller Kate Holt had one.

Even though Davie has a losing record, it has managed to outscore opponents 11-8.

“I looked on maxpreps and the JV had not 9-0’d anybody going back to 2011-12,” coach Collin Ferebee said. “And it’s the first time the JV has had a positive goal differential since 2017.”

• The Davie boys lacrosse team posted two blowout wins last week – 14-6 over visiting Mt. Tabor and 16-6 at West Forsyth. Davie entered the week 6-7 overall and 5-5 in the CPC.

• Davie’s JV softball team fell twice last week, losing 7-2 at East Forsyth in its first game in 20 days and 7-4 at home to Reagan. Davie (3-4-1) has a three-game losing streak.
