August 18, 2010 |

NORTH PLAINS, Ore. Ñ UC Davis sophomore Amy Simanton shot a 1-under 71 at Pumpkin RidgeÕs Ghost Creek course on Monday, tying for first in the qualifier for this weekendÕs field for the LPGA Safeway Classic and earning a spot in the tournament.

Simanton, from Lake Oswego, Ore., joined Jean Bartholemew with top honors on Monday to qualify for her first career LPGA event. She was playing in her home state where she enjoyed an outstanding prep career before coming to the Aggies, for whom she earned All-Big West first-team honors while helping lead UCD to the conference title last season.

Simanton was runner-up to teammate Chelsea Stelzmiller at the Big West tournament. SheÕll open competition in the Safeway Classic on Friday, joining a field that features many of the golfÕs top players.

The Aggies open their season Sept. 8 at The Topy Cup in Japan.

Fall Ball registration is being taken through Aug. 28 by Davis Little League.

An exciting addition to the mix is the Junior division, open to 13- and 14-year-old players.

During a season that runs from Sept. 17 to Nov. 13, kids who will be playing from AA level to Juniors are eligible to continue their baseball development.

Registration is $95 and can be completed online at http://www.davislittleleague.org or by contacting league officials at [email protected]

There is no T-Ball or Farm-level Fall Ball.
