To be frank, the Noah Davises of the world slacked off a little bit athletically during the Spring semester. The ND clan had a strong showing on the baseball diamond, but there's nary a Noah Davis Google Alert mention of track and field when it comes to the Davis youth. And don't get me started on lacrosse or golf, which are quite obviously not a forte for us. Still, away we go:
Bellwood-Antis junior Noah Davis started the Spring term out on a high note, picking up Pennsylvania All-State Boys Basketball Team honors after averaging 18.9 points and 9.9 rebounds for the Blue Devils. "This is a very big surprise,'' Davis said. "It's always been a goal of mine. It's kind of a dream come true," the 6-foot-6 forward offered, proving he is marginally more eloquent (if only slightly) than another multi-personned athlete.
Quickly, however, the athletic focus turned to the baseball field. On April 4, Noah Davis went 2-for-3 with three RBI in his Benjamin Franklin Middle School's 8-6 triumph over Northside Middle School. Davis showed his versatility a couple weeks later, giving up one run over four innings, while picking up the victory in BFMS's 10-9 win. Cut to April 25, and Noah Davis found himself standing in the batters' box with a chance to put the Eagles in the lead. He popped out.
On March 29th, Noah Davis threw a hitless inning of relief for the Harford Tech Cobras, closing out a 9-3 victory over the Rising Sun Tigers. A day later, Bellwood-Antis Noah Davis celebrated after his brother, Nathan, hit 24 of 25 free throws (including 23 in a row after missing his second one) and then proceeded to win the Elks National Hoop Shoot Finals at New England College in a shoot-off. The duo could play together on varsity next year.
Early May saw Noah Davis taking up the stage, as a Bar Harbor junior played "eccentric neighbor" Victor Valasco in "Barefoot in the Park." Just down the East Coast on the same day, Davis delivered three hits and four RBIs in a 17-2 pasting of Glenvar Middle School at the W.W. Naff Jr. Field, while Harford Tech's pitcher earned a victory. The next week, he threw three-and-one-third innings of scoreless ball over two relief stints for the Cobras, while "middle-aged Lothario" Noah Davis earned rave reviews for his comedic timing in "Barefoot in the Park." Another Noah Davis jumped around in the water. A real triple threat
