Interim AD talks about next Aggie priorities

Six weeks ago, when Terry Tumey suddenly resigned, Teresa Gould became the UC Davis interim director of athletics. Within 90 minutes of the announcement, Gould was in Aggie basketball coach Jim Les’ office. Les was in the fourth year of a five-season contract. His team is coming off its high-profile, 25-win Big West championship campaign. […]

Kings’ Divac liked what he saw in Hawkins

SACRAMENTO — He didn’t get any frequent-flyer miles on Friday, but his reputation around the NBA grew a little more as Corey Hawkins’ workout with the Sacramento Kings drew solid reviews from Vlade Divac, the club’s vice president of basketball and franchise operations. It was a spirited session that — in addition to the soon-to-be-former […]

Rick Harper has DHS athletes going skyward

Earlier this week, Davis High coach Rick Harper hoped our chat would have little to do with him and focus 100 percent on his Blue Devil pole-vaulting crew. “We have terrific kids … it’s just a joy working with them,” the former UC San Diego vaulter and Georgetown Medical School graduate told me. “And the leadership […]

Masters preview: DHS pole vault unit had its up and downs

Sports have their metaphorical ups and downs. In some events, ups and downs are literal. For the Davis High pole-vaulting crew, its recent elevator ride has covered both interpretations. First, in last Wednesday’s Sac-Joaquin Section Division I finals, Nate Harper — who won the Delta League crown with a 15-03 vault — and teammate Joe Blakewell achieved […]

Hawkins’ whirlwind tour includes Friday date with Kings

Aggie fans, keep your fingers crossed. This Friday, UC Davis guard Corey Hawkins will work out for the Sacramento Kings. “I’d love to stay out west, near family, but I’ll go wherever I’m wanted,” says Hawkins, who adds that staying in the Sacramento area “would be terrific.” Hawkins, who is the reigning Big West Player of the […]

In The Clubhouse: Every golfer has a story. Share yours?

About 20 years ago, Bill Goslow, then the golf coach at Crescent Valley High in Corvallis, Ore., was the state prep tournament director. I don’t remember how many golfers were involved, but there was a point on the course at which Goslow and his colleague could sit in their cart — high on a hill […]

Marshall leads UCD track contingent to NCAA prelim meet

Ashley Marshall will leave UC Davis as one of the most accomplished track and field performers in the school’s history. A three-time Big West Conference champion in both the 100- and 200-meter sprints, the Moreno Valley native now leads an Aggie contingent of 16 competitors into this week’s NCAA West Region Prelim meet. Contested at the […]

Aggies, Les reach long-term contract accord

“I’ve never (coached) for the money because I love (basketball). I love the interaction and mentoring young men and it’s amazing, when you (take) that approach with something, how the other things work themselves out.” Those are the words of UC Davis men’s basketball coach Jim Les. On Friday, “the other things” worked themselves out. […]

Jacobson helps UCD baseball seniors get 30th win

They went out winners. Before a sun-baked, enthusiastic crowd of almost 1,000 at Dobbins Stadium, the UC Davis baseball team followed another solid outing by starter Raul Jacobson to close out 2015 with a 4-2 victory over Cal Poly on Saturday. The season finale was Senior Day with the 10 graduating Aggies feted in pre-game ceremonies. […]

Ataxia-cure ride is Bicycle Month finale

It’s a “this-n-that” Friday. Let’s get started… Ride for a purpose: RideATAXIA NorCal — a multi-route cycling fundraiser — hits town Saturday, May 30. It’s the third visit to Davis for the event, which will feature a handful of victims of what is known as Friedreich’s ataxia, an often-fatal neurological problem. UC Davis graduate Kyle Bryant […]

Weather-savvy UCD women golfers ready for humid Florida

In earning its fourth trip to the NCAA finals this week, the UC Davis women’s golf team has seen it all this season. After opening with a third-place finish at the toasty Dick McGuire Invitational in New Mexico, later in the season the Aggies felt the morning chill in Michigan, were drizzled on in Washington […]

AYSO weighs in on Wolk’s plan to resurrect sports park

When Mayor Dan Wolk told me two weeks ago that he would like to see discussion about a Davis sports park put back on the city’s front burner, the announcement drew widespread support. Three thumbs up immediately came from softball groups, Davis Little League and AYSO. Wolk floated the idea of restudying city land off […]

Season nears for crowded Post 77 baseball

Yolo Post 77 baseball staffers greeted more than 40 hopefuls for this summer’s squad: a significant sign that American Legion ball is alive and well — at least in this neck of the woods. “We’re going to carry our biggest roster ever into this weekend’s Memorial Day tournament,” said second-year Post 77 manager Dave Ryan, who […]
