BRIEFS: Aggie soccer stars honored

By
November 16, 2010 |

\n

Though team success always comes first, individual recognition is a nice consolation prize. The UC Davis men\’s soccer team came up just short in its quest to make the Big West tournament — and have a chance to qualify for the NCAAs — this season, but three of its players were honored by the conference on Tuesday.

\n

Aggies Lance Patterson and Chris Beville were named to the All-Big West second team, while Nathan Javadi earned honorable mention accolades. The three selections is the most for UCD since the 2008 season, when the Aggies landed five on the all-conference list.

\n

Patterson led UCD in virtually every offensive category, finishing his junior campaign with six goals and an assist for 13 points. In addition, he took 43 shots on the year and started the 2010 season by scoring in four of the first five matches. The Aurora, Colo. native recorded the overtime game-winner against San Jose State on Sept. 5 and assisted on the tying score against Saint Mary\’s a week later.

\n

Beville was one of only three Aggies to start all 18 matches as he anchored the UCD backline. The senior led UCD on a string of shutout victories from Oct. 9-16 and maintained an defense which saw 13 games decided by only one goal, six of them going into overtime. Aggie opponents scored only 27 goals, the lowest output since the 2008 squad gave up just 20 goals.

\n

Javadi also started all 18 matches as an outside defender. In addition to contributing

\n

to UCD\’s defensive successes, Javadi also provided a spark on offense, most notably recorded the game-winning goal in OT against UC Riverside on Oct. 13. He took 10 shots, five of which were on frame.

\n

Each of the three standouts received all-conference honors for the first time for the Aggies, who finished the 2010 campaign with a 6-12 overall record and a 4-6 mark in Big West play.

\n

Cycling lecture

\n

Dr. Todd Weitzenberg, a semi-pro cyclist and sports medicine physician at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Rosa, will give a lecture titled “Exercise Can Save the World” at 7 p.m. today at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis.

\n

The museum, at 303 Third St., will be open for tours beginning at 4 p.m. and light refreshments will be served beginning at 6 p.m.

\n

Weitzenberg is a graduate of the Chicago School of Medicine and did his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation and fellowship in sports medicine at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. In addition to being a team physician for Sonoma State University, he is a medical

\n

director for the Nike Women\’s Marathon and the Napa Valley Marathon.

\n

This event is jointly sponsored by Kaiser Permanente and the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.

\n

Admission is free; to RSVP, call Tina Bozzini at (530) 757-4121.

\n

\n

The Blue Devil basketball program will host four alumni games on Nov. 27.

\n

\n

\n

\n

Scholarship assistance is available.

\n

There is a late fee of $50 for any registration or payment received after the above dates. Team sizes are limited so all players have an opportunity to play, so early registration is

World Cup speaker

\n

FIFA World Cup soccer official Veronica Perez will speak on Friday at the Veterans\’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St.

\n

The talk will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Perez, a Sacramento resident, has been invited by Davis AYSO to talk about her experience and “to give any (pointers) she can to any area officials,” AYSO spokesman Fred Main says.

\n

There is no charge and Main adds that his organization urges all referees and soccer fans to

\n

attend. RSVP at [email protected]

\n

In 2008, Perez was appointed to FIFA\’s international panel as an assistant referee. Her first year, she was appointed to work at two international tournaments: the Beijing Summer Olympics and the U17 CONCACAF Qualifier in Trinidad and Tobago. She recently returned from the U-20 women\’s World Cup.

\n

Perez, who also officiates Central California Soccer League women\’s and men\’s matches, was used extensively as an assistant referee in the last women\’s World Cup.
