UCD defensive line playing a new game

RENO — Even though Nevada gained 232 yards on the ground, for the most part Wolf Pack running backs Don Jackson and James Butler had to go around the UC Davis front four to have big success on Thursday. Despite the 31-17 setback, Aggie defensive linemen Brandon Weaver, Jordan Hoyt, Walter Earnest, Kyle DeVaughn and […]

Aggies show promise in loss at FBS Nevada

An uneven first half put UC Davis in a 21-point hole, but the Aggies went toe-to-toe with Nevada after that in — if there is such a thing — a promising, 31-17, season-opening loss on Thursday.

In front of 21,483 fans at Mackay Stadium, UCD outplayed the Football Bowl Subdivision Wolf Pack over the final 30 minutes.

“The things I’m very proud of is I saw the kids fight to the bitter end,” said Aggie head coach Ron Gould. “I saw our offense move the ball on a good football team. We saw our defense do a really good job clamping down in the second half. The defensive coordinator (Bert Watts) and staff made some adjustments and it helped us.”

Adventurous kayaker, 14, makes a splash

There is little doubt that 14-year-old Audrey Adamchak has adventure in her blood.

The personable — and courageous — Audrey already has dabbled in bike racing, gymnastics, rugby, water polo, soccer and swimming.

She says she’s going to stick with recreational biking, “maybe go back to rugby” and, just this week, began testing the water at River City Rowing at Lake Washington.

But the Holmes Junior High ninth-grader’s real passion seems to be white-water kayaking — an activity she’s undertaken with a unique approach and a big appetite.

Shaffer bleeds blue, has golden soccer outlook

Dwayne Shaffer isn’t opposed to adjusting based on his players’ skill sets. The UC Davis men’s soccer coach, in his 19th season with the Aggies, usually likes his teams to play hard-nosed defense, control the pace, keep the games close. But this year, Shaffer’s guys might have a different strategy. There’s speed galore up front […]
