Local lacrosse fans have seen these Elizabeth Landry moves for three seasons … The UC Davis midfielder collects the draw, blazes toward the opponent’s goal, dekes a couple of defenders and — whoosh! — her powerful shot shakes the net.

UCD staff allows 19 hits in Causeway rout

The UC Davis baseballers have been knocking the ball around a little bit — recently taking two of three games from visiting Long Beach State after almost beating Stanford.

On Monday, the 118th running of the world’s most famous 26-mile tour will […]
