December 3, 2010 |

\n

AUSTIN, Texas — Taking the pool against some of the best collegiate swimmers in the nation, the UC Davis women knew nothing less than their best would be enough. At Day 1 of the Texas Swimming and Diving Hall of Fame Invitational , the Aggies were up to that task.

\n

Heidi Kucera set two NCAA B Consideration Standard times and UCD recorded 19 individual season best times on Thursday at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center.

\n

Kucera set both B marks in the 200 individual medley, after clocking in with a season and team best time of 2:00.34 in the event preliminaries. She finished seventh overall in the event finals with a time of 2:01.77, also an NCAA B Consideration time.

\n

The 200 freestyle A relay of Morgan Lee, Samantha Capozzo, Sabrina Cochrane and Kayleigh Foley finished seventh overall with a season-best time of 1:35.01, while the 400 medley relay A team — Linda Hermann, Foley, Liliana Alvarez and Kucera — also came in seventh overall with a 3:47.55, also a season-high.

\n

The Aggies were also led by a strong individual performance from Hermann, who finished in the top 20 in both the 500 free and the 200 IM. Hermann turned in a season and team-best time of 4:53.46 in the 500 free prelims, then finished 16th overall in the finals (4:56.02). In the 200 IM, Hermanns clocked in at 2:02.69 in the prelims and was 13th overall with a finals time of 2:03.04.

\n

Foley advanced to the finals of both the 100 butterfly and the 50 free. In the 100 fly, she advanced by way of a season-best 55.85 in the prelims and finished 23rd overall. She then clocked in with a season- and team-best time of 23.56 in the prelims of the 50 frees and was 26th overall.

\n

Jenah Dawson earned second swims in both the 100 fly and 200 IM, finishing 29th overall in the 100 fly (57.52) and 31st in the 200 IM with her best time of the year (2:07.55).

\n

Cochrane finished 21st overall in the 200 IM (2:04.06) and 35th in the 50 free (24.19), both season-best times. Capozzo (24.25 in the 50 free), Grace Benefield (5:00.28, 500 free) and Sarah Winters (5:08.38, 500 free) all swam their fastest times of the year.

\n

Alvarez was 30th overall in the 200 IM with a season-best time of 2:07.20 and Lee was 34th in the 50 freestyle, recording a season-best time of 24.01.

\n

The Aggies continue action at the Texas Invite today.

UCD men\’s golf

\n

Aggie head coach Cy Williams announced Thursday that Woodland High\’s Will Scarlett — last year\’s Tri-County Conference MVP — is one of two golfers to sign National Letters of Intent with UCD.

\n

Scarlett and Carmel High\’s Luke Vivolo, the fourth-place finisher at the 2009 state championships, will join the team next fall.

\n

“Both Luke and Will are great fits for UC Davis,” Williams said. “They\’re talented players, very good students and we\’re planning for them to be big contributors to our program.”

\n

Scarlett is a three-year letterwinner with the Wolves and was named his team\’s most valuable player in addition to earning similar honors from the conference last spring. Also a two-year team captain, Scarlett finished second at the league championship tournament in 2009. As a freshman, he took fourth at the event and was named Rookie of the Year.

\n

Woodland has finished as league runner-up each of his first three seasons.

\n

In addition to his golfing achievements, Scarlett is a member of the National Honor Society, California Scholarship Federation and the Principal\’s Honor Roll.

\n

Vivolo earned his impressive fourth-place tie at the CIF/SCGA state championship during his sophomore year after firing a 72 at the Poppy Hills Golf Club. The two-time All-Mission Trail Athletic League member was named his team\’s MVP last season.

\n

Carmel twice won the league title before taking second last year. Vivolo went on to earn medalist honors by two shots at the U.S. Junior Amateur Sectional Qualifier at Stanford Golf Course. He\’s earned honor roll distinction throughout his high school career.

\n

The pair will join an Aggie program that recently finished its fall season ranked 59th in the nation by Golfstat and will return to action in February at the 21st Annual Waikoloa Invitational in Kona, Hawaii.

Lacrosse gear swap

\n

The DHS boys lacrosse team will host a lacrosse gear swap on Saturday from 9:30 a.m.

\n

to 12:30 p.m. at the North Davis Elementary multipurpose room, 555 E. 14th St.

\n

With lacrosse growing so fast on the West Coast, gear can be hard to find. The swap is intended to help parents outfit their sons at a reasonable price.

\n

There will be some new and used gear for sale, but admission is free. Come to buy, sell, swap or donate gear for players of all ages.

\n

Donations may be dropped off before Saturday at 1804 Titian Place.
