BRIEFS: Blue Devil girls blaze the Trail

By
October 6, 2010 |

The Davis High girls tour of dominance Ñ otherwise known as its Delta Valley Conference tennis schedule Ñ continued on Tuesday with a 9-0 victory at Monterey Trail.

Rolling through the six singles and three doubles matches in straight sets, the Blue Devils did not even have a close match.

DHSÕ top player InŽs Guinard set the tone with a 6-0, 6-0 victory at No. 1 singles, while Mari Cajandig trounced Nancy Tran, 6-0, 6-1 at No. 2.

MariÕs two sisters, Ceci and Briki, made it a Cajandig sweep when they each won singles matches, and Anna Klavins and Caron Miller also were victorious.

In doubles play, Ginny Hartz and Kelly Chuck combined for a 6-0, 6-3 win at No. 1 and the other two teams Ñ Megan Williams/Grace Blacker and Jasmin Mould/Natalie Serdahl Ñ took advantage of their chance to shine.

The Devil tour of dominance is back at the Community Park Tennis Complex on Thursday, with a 3:45 p.m. rematch against Elk Grove.

UCD womenÕs golf

Buoyed by a pair of 74s from sophomores Amy Simanton and Demi Runas, the 18th-ranked Aggies are in fifth place at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational after two rounds at the University of Washington.

The final 18 holes of the tournament were played today, with UCD teeing off at 8:22 a.m.

Simanton, who shot an opening-round 76 on Monday, moved into a tie for 21st, joining Aggie senior Alice Kim, who had a 78 and is also at 6-over 150 after 36 holes. Runas remained in the top 10 and is tied for ninth at 2-over 146. Freshman Jessica Chulya and senior Chelsea Stelzmiller each improved on their first-day scores, shooting 77 on Tuesday, and are tied for 40th and 58th, respectively.

The Aggies shot a 14-over 302 team score on Tuesday, four strokes off their first-round score, and are in fifth place in the 15-team tournament at 24-over 600.

Simanton had a scrambling front nine on Tuesday, mixing three birdies, a bogey and a double-bogey into a par-35 before playing the back at two shots over par. A birdie on the par-5, 18th gave her a 74.

Runas was two shots over par after nine holes ÑÊand eventually jumped to four over ÑÊbut rallied with a pair of birdies over her final five holes to also come in with a 74.

Chulya played her back nine just two over par, while Stelzmiller did the same on her front nine as both players cut strokes from their first-round tallies. Kim was just one shot over par on her first nine holes before coming in with a 78.

UCD womenÕs volleyball

Aggie freshman setter Jenny Woolway was selected as the National Player of the Week by Collegiate Volleyball Update for Sept. 27 through Oct. 3. This is the first such honor for a UCD player and just the third all-time by a Big West Conference student-athlete.

A native of San Diego who prepped at Torrey Pines High School, Woolway led the Aggies to conference wins over Cal State Northridge and UC Irvine, vaulting UCD into first place in the Big West standings.

She tallied 52 assists and a career-high 25 digs in FridayÕs four-set win over the Matadors, then followed that with 41 assists and 19 digs in SaturdayÕs sweep of the Anteaters. For the week, Woolway averaged 13.29 assists and 6.29 digs per frame.

More significantly, Woolway served as the centerpiece for an offense that averaged 16.71 kills per set and generated a .269 team hitting average in the two victories. Woolway helped four Aggies post efficiency rates of .300 or better, while a fifth player Ñ sophomore Allison Whitson Ñ tallied a team-best 28 kills for the weekend.

UCD is 12-4 overall and 4-0 in the Big West play. Woolway and the Aggies are at Long Beach State on Friday and at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday.

The Blue Devils will wear pink jerseys and charge an admission price of $3 to watch both the varsity and JV play4thecure contests. The first 15 fans at each game will receive free pink DHS field hockey shirts, and the shirts also will be available for purchase along with pink-themed food and drink items.
