NEWPORT COAST — Local product Tyler Raber was the top overall finisher for UC Davis, but it was Josh Granger and Andrew Haggen who led the way during Tuesday’s final round.

It all added up to a 10th-place finish for the Aggies at the Battle at the Beach at the Pelican Hill Golf Course.

Raber, a Davis High graduate, ended with a 75 to take 23rd overall at 6-over. Granger and Haggen each shot final-round 73s and Daniel Covrig improved on his second round score by three strokes on Tuesday.

Using the strong round, Haggen finished tied for 35th at nine over. Austin Graham carded a 76 for UCD during his final round to tie for 45th at 11-over, Granger was 13-over and tied for 58th. Rounding out the Aggie scores were Matt Seramin, who tied for 66th at 17-over, and Covrig carded a 77 and finished in 73rd overall.

UCD, ranked 48th in the nation by Golfstat, posted a 54-hole score of 52-over 1,102, nine shots back of No. 36 Oregon State and seven shots ahead of Big West Conference member Long Beach State. UCLA edged out San Diego for the team title, while San Diego’s Kenneth McCready took medalist honors in the 13-team tournament.

Raber led the Aggies throughout the tournament, posting the team’s lowest scores after the first two rounds, including a season-low 68 on Sunday. His final round was highlighted by birdies on the par-4 fifth and the par-4 11th as well as 11 par holes.

UCD returns to action on Feb. 28 at the two-day USC Collegiate Invitational.

Correction

In an article about the Davis High boys basketball team published on Tuesday, it was incorrectly reported that the Blue Devils had four graduating seniors on the team. There are actually five including forward Brandon Hassid. The Enterprise regrets the error.

Hot Shots tryouts

Boys in seventh through ninth grade who wish to play for the Davis Hot Shots AAU program should come to a tryout tonight at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

Workouts will be from 7 to 9 p.m., and athletes should bring a copy of their birth certificate and AAU card.

The Davis Hot Shots program is run by current DHS freshman boys coach Dino Clark, who has 30 years of experience as a player and coach. Hot Shots players will learn “not only basketball but life lessons,” according to Clark.

Hall of Fame presentation

A talk this week at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame will feature a topic of historical significance that goes beyond the sporting aspect of cycling.

On Sunday, Feb. 20, Andrew Ritchie, an ex-racer who has been writing about the sport for the past 30 years, will be at the Hall to give a presentation about Marshall “Major” Taylor (1878-1932).

Long before Jackie Robinson, Taylor was an African-American who faced fierce opposition by competing in cycling at a time when the sport was basically all white. After much hardship when trying to race near his home in Indianapolis, Taylor moved to Worcester, Mass., in the late 1890s and went on to break world records, win national and international championships and become one of the highest-paid cycling stars in the world.

From 4 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Ritchie will present a slide show on Taylor’s life and have copies of the latest edition of his book “Major Taylor” for purchase and signing. Admission is free for members and costs $5 for nonmembers.

The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, at 303 Third St., will open that day at 3 p.m. In addition, the Hall is open each Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
