There’s still time to enter the Yolo County Peace Officers Memorial fourth annual Golf Classic, to be held Friday, Sept. 5, at the Wild Wings Golf Club in Woodland.

Members of the public are invited to participate in this fundraising event. Proceeds will go toward maintenance of the Peace Officers Memorial in Woodland and a memorial scholarship fund.

The entry fee is $90 per golfer and $360 per team. This price includes 18 holes golf with cart, range balls, lunch and dinner. Additional dinner tickets may be purchased for $24 for non-golfers. Mulligan’s and raffle tickets will be sold at registration and at the dinner.

The format is a four-person scramble.

Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at noon. Longest-drive and closest-to-the-hole contests are scheduled. Additionally Hoblit Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Woodland has donated a car or truck should anyone make a hole in one at the designated par-3 hole.

Hole sponsorships from $100 to $1,000 are invited, and businesses and organizations are welcome to donate raffle prizes.

The Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Association is a nonprofit foundation. Tax-deductible donations may be sent to the Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Memorial Fund, P. O. Box 8027, Woodland, CA 95776.

UCD women’s swimming

Four home duals along with an open meet highlight this year’s schedule for the three-time defending Mountain Pacific Sports Federation champion UC Davis women’s swimming and diving team, head coach Barbara Jahn announced Monday.

Coming off back-to-back league crowns and an unbeaten dual season (9-0) for the first time in school history, Jahn and her charges kick off the season at home with the annual Blue-Gold Intrasquad scrimmage on Oct. 11 before officially opening the year with a dual against longtime rival San Jose State on Oct. 17 at the Schaal Aquatic Center.

Against the Spartans, the Aggies will don pink swim caps to support breast cancer awareness and research, collecting donations at the door and proceeds from a post-meet swim clinic.

Dating back to a double-dual split against UCLA (L, 135-119) and Washington State (W, 139-119) on Nov. 2, 2012, UCD has combined to win its last 16 consecutive duals.

The swimmers then head to the Pacific Invitational on Oct. 18 — the first of three consecutive dates on the road which also includes a dual with Fresno State along with the divers, and a double-dual in Los Angeles against MPSF rivals Loyola Marymount and San Diego.

Home meets against Nevada (Nov. 8) and conference foe BYU (Nov. 15) follow on consecutive weekends before the Aggies close out the fall portion of their schedule with the divers heading to the three-day Wildcat Diving Invitational in Tucson, Arizona, on Nov. 21-23, and the swimmers competing in the Lone Star State as part of the Texas Invitational in Austin on Dec. 4-6.

For the first time since 2007, UCD will host an open meet to kick off the second half of its schedule with the Aggie Open on Jan. 10, one of just four events prior to the MPSF Championships in mid-February. The Aggies’ divers head to the Bruin Diving Invitational in Los Angeles on Jan. 17-19, while the swimmers face league rival UC Santa Barbara on the road in a dual on Jan. 24. UCD closes out the regular season with a “Senior Day” home dual against Pacific on Jan. 31.

Last season, the Aggies finished with a total of 712.5 points — the third-highest total in MPSF Championships history — to sprint past UC Santa Barbara (638) and BYU (620) for the title. UCD has claimed three of the four MPSF titles, wearing the crown in 2011, 2013, and 2014.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Aggie midfielder Courtney Neff was one of 238 Division-I student-athletes on the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Academic Honor Roll, it was announced in August. Recipients must achieve at least junior status academically and hold a cumulative grade-point average of 3.50 or higher.

A native of Lafayette, Neff boasts a 3.81 GPA in international relations with a minor in Spanish. She previously led a contingent of four Aggie honorees on the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Academic squad, and claimed the department’s Herbert Schmalenberger Memorial Scholar-Athlete Award for the 2013-14 school year.

Neff is the first UCD player to win DI IWLCA Academic honors since Hilary Harkins captured back-to-back in 2007 and 2008. Defender Jen Sanderson also won the award in 2007.

UCD women’s lacrosse finished 8-8 in 2014. Neff started 10 of 16 games, scoring 15 goals with three assists.

Foxy’s Fall Century

Registration is open now for Foxy’s Fall Century Bike Ride on Saturday, Oct. 18. Three courses are offered — 100 miles, 60 miles and 30 miles. Snacks, lunch and a post-ride meal are included.

To register, visit the Davis Bike Club website at www.davisbikeclub.org.

City flag football

The city of Davis is taking registration for its fall adult flag football league.

Games will be played Sunday evenings at Playfields Park starting Sept. 21. Fees for the six-game season are $375 per team.

For more information, contact Lori Conrad at 530-753-7731 or lconrad@cityofdavis.org.
