Sports briefs: Heintz returns to UCD

By
From page B2 | July 22, 2014 |

Former UC Davis women’s basketball standout Heidi Heintz returns to join the Aggies’ coaching staff as the program’s director of basketball operations for the 2014-15 campaign, it was announced Monday by head coach Jennifer Gross.

“I am excited to return to the Aggie family,” Heintz said. “To be part of such an accomplished and experienced staff will be an invaluable experience. They are brilliant coaches, amazing people, and I look forward to learning from some of the best.”

Heintz replaces Britinee Yasukochi, who accepted a job as an assistant coach at the University of San Francisco after spending three seasons with the Aggies as the program’s first-ever director of basketball operations. The former Aggie standout will assist the coaching staff in various administrative capacities such as film breakdown and exchange, camps and clinics, team travel, and alumni/community relations.

A native of Spokane, Wash., Heintz was a versatile two-year letter winner at UCD in 2009-11 after spending her first two collegiate seasons with the Dons. She was a second-team All-Big West Conference selection as a junior in 2010, ranking second on the team in scoring (10.8 ppg) and leading the team with 145 rebounds (4.5 rpg). She helped the Aggies to a WNIT berth and a 21-11 overall record in their second full season at the Division I level.

Following her collegiate days, Heintz played professionally in Europe for Club FoA in Finland in 2011-12 and for the ChemCats in Chemnitz, Germany, in 2012-13, finishing undefeated in league play with the latter en route to a Bundesliga II German Championship. She averaged 11.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in 28 contests during her stay in Germany, shooting just over 56 percent from the field and 77 percent from the line.

Upon her return to the United States, the exercise biology major was an assistant coach for the junior varsity and varsity programs at Ballard High School in Seattle, while also coaching various age groups with the AAU Hoopaholics Academy.

DAM anniversary party

Davis Aquatic Masters is celebrating its 40th year as an organized adult swim team and invites all current and former members and coaches to attend the party.

On Saturday, Aug. 9, DAM will host a luau from 6 to 11 p.m. featuring a catered dinner, beverages, entertainment, dancing and a brief program emceed by head coach Stu Kahn.

“This celebration is a testament to swimmers, coaches and supporters who have allowed the club to prosper and endure and reach our current membership of 500-plus,” Kahn explained.

Included in the evening will be the DAM version of “Duel in the Pool,” a handicapped race between Ernie Hoftyzer and Rick Moss. Hoftyzer successfully completed the

Manhattan Island Marathon Swim last month, finishing in less than eight hours, while Moss has been training hard in workouts hoping to outsprint his teammate in this fundraiser for charity.
