BRIEFS: Aggies win awards

\n

DAVIDSON, N.C. — The third-seeded UC Davis field hockey team dropped its first round game in the NorPac conference tournament on Thursday, falling 6-2 to No. 2 Longwood at Belk Turf Field in Davidson, N.C.

\n

A four-goal outburst for Longwood in the first 14 minutes of the match, ignited by Olga Knop and Lauren van de Kamp, helped the Lancers take a five-goal lead by intermission.

\n

The Aggies outscored Longwood 2-1 in the second period, but the offense proved to be too little too late. UCD received goals from Emily Mecke and Cloey LemMon, with both scores coming late in the game.

\n

Knop had two goals for Longwood, while van de Kamp assisted on both of Knop\’s scores and netted a goal of her own.

\n

The Lancers\’ first two tallies came 38 seconds apart in the sixth minute, and by the time van de Kamp put home a rebound in the 15th minute Longwood was up 4-0.

\n

The Aggies had a chance to get on the board when they were awarded a penalty stroke in the 19th minute, but Lancer keeper Kaye Goulding came up with the save.

\n

Mecke spoiled the shutout scoring on a breakaway in the 59th minute, as Marissa Hughes set up the play with a long ball up the middle the field. LemMon tallied the final score of the game less than three minutes later when she took a pass from Mecke pass and notched her fifth goal of the season.

\n

Lauren Sawvelle was in goal for UCD in the first half, before Conley Craven stepped in for the second period.

\n

“Although the score was 6-2, the girls played a hard-fought game,” said Aggie head coach Vianney Campos. “Longwood capitalized on their opportunities and we dug a hole early. Although we fought back, we needed to execute on our opportunities if we wanted to get back into the game.”

\n

UCD closed out the season today at 8 a.m., playing in a consolation game.

\n

“The ladies had a great run this season but are pumped to have another chance to finish their season on a high note,” Campos added. “They recognize that setting a foundation for the program is a process and they are committed to helping that happen. Sometimes the process doesn\’t go in our favor, but we recognize we have a lot to work on and are ready to continue making the best of it.”

\n

On Wednesday, the Aggies were recognized for what they have done well this season when they received three NorPac honors at the league\’s annual awards banquet, held at Davidson\’s Lilly Gallery of Chambers Building.

\n

UCD\’s Nadia Namdari was named the West Offensive Player of the Year, Sarah Schneider received the Sheryl Johnson Academic Award and Casey Wollbrinck was named to the West All-Conference Team.

\n

Namdari, a sophomore forward, was the Aggies\’ leading scorer with seven goals, three assists and 17 points, while ranking in the league\’s top 10 in goals and points. An offensive player of the week selection, she also paces UCD\’s offensive attack with 42 shots, 28 shots on goal and three-game winning tallies. Her overtime game-winner against Pacific gave the Aggies their first NorPac win in program history.

\n

Schneider, an applied chemistry major with an emphasis on pharmaceutical chemistry, holds a 3.95 overall GPA, which ranks her in the top one percent of her class.

\n

After posting a 4.0 in 2009-10, she will graduate in 2011 with her graduate degree, plans to compete in her final year of eligibility next fall and begin medical school at UCD in the fall of 2012.

\n

Wollbrinck, a sophomore defender, was one of 11 players to be named to the West Division All-Conference Team. She started in all 15 games on the season for the Aggies, recording two goals after 22 shots, to go along with two defensive saves. Wollbrinck matched up with the opposing team\’s best player in ever game and helped lead a UCD defense that held opponents to two goals or less in nine games.

UCD swimming

\n

Aggie senior Heidi Kucera was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Female Swimmer of the Week on Thursday, after leading UCD to victories over Pacific and Nevada last Friday.

\n

Kucera won two individual events to help send the Aggies past Nevada, 154-99, and over Pacific, 144-112.

\n

She won the 200 breaststroke in a team-best time of 2:19.70, marking the second time this year she has won the event, and also took the 200 freestyle in a time of 1:55.19, leading a UCD sweep of the top three spots.

\n

In addition, Kucera swam the second leg of the 200 medley relay, which won in a time of 1:46.65.

\n

Kucera currently owns the fastest time in the MPSF in the 200 IM and the second-fastest mark in the league in the 200 breaststroke.

\n

The Aggies return to action this weekend by hosting back-to-back dual meets at Schaal Aquatics Center. UCD will take on San Jose State on Saturday at 1 p.m. before a double dual meet against Seattle and Loyola Marymount on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

DHS girls volleyball

\n

Despite an upset win over Franklin on Senior Night at The Cage on Wednesday — snapping the

\n

Wildcats eight-game winning streak — the Blue Devils were not among the 16 teams chosen on Thursday to compete in the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.

\n

Instead, DHS ends on a good note, playing it best match of the season against FHS to send out seniors Cassie Varland, Rachael Devries and Angie Rinaldi in style. Head coach Leigh Whitmire\’s Devils finished 9-15 overall, but posted a 6-4 record in Delta Valley Conference play.

\n

Only two DVC members qualified for the postseason, with Monterey Trail earning a No. 7 seed and a home match on Tuesday against No. 10 Pitman. 12th-seeded Franklin will play on the road at Oak Ridge.

\n

\n

UCD softball

\n

While playing a few more games to wrap up their fall schedule, the Aggies also are giving back to the community. The UCD squad is set to host a canned food drive and free youth softball clinic that will take place the next two weekends.

\n

On Saturday at 10 a.m., the Aggies will host Sacramento City College and Sierra College at La Rue Field in their final fall games. The day also will feature a canned food drive to benefit the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee.

\n

Then on Saturday, Nov. 13, UCD teams up with the Davis Youth Softball Association to host a free youth softball clinic at Community Park. The camp will run from 1 to 3 p.m., with check-in beginning at 12:30 p.m.

\n

Admission is free, but the clinic will be limited to the first 100 individuals in eighth grade and under. To reserve a spot, contact Aggie assistant coach Alicia Hollowell at akhollowell@ucdavis.edu.
