BRIEFS: UCD joins the MPSF for swimming

By
July 22, 2010 |

The UC Davis womenÕs swimming and diving team will join the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, when the conference adds the sport for the 2010-11 academic year.

Swimming and diving becomes the 10th sport sponsored by the MPSF, a Division I conference that specializes in Olympic sports. The Aggie aquatic squad joins womenÕs gymnastics and womenÕs lacrosse as UCD teams that compete in the conference.

Three of the AggiesÕ former Big West Conference foes Ñ Cal Poly, Pacific and UC Santa Barbara Ñ also have joined the MPSF. The other teams are Cal State Bakersfield, Loyola Marymount, Northern Colorado, the University of San Diego and Seattle University. The Big West discontinued its menÕs and womenÕs championships for the sport after budget cuts forced several schools in the conference to eliminate their teams. The UCD menÕs squad suffered that fate in a move that became effective July 1.

The inaugural MPSF WomenÕs Swimming and Diving Championship Meet will be held Feb. 23-26 at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach.

ÒI think itÕs great,Ó Aggie head coach Barbara Jahn. ÒItÕs a nice medium-sized conference of like institutions who are all Division I and IÕm looking forward to the new competition that the team will face.Ó

A total of 37 institutions and 82 teams now compete in the MPSF, which owns a combined 61 NCAA Division I national team championships dating back to its initial season in 1992-93.

Last season, Jahn was named the 2010 Big West Conference WomenÕs Coach of the Year after leading UCD to its first conference championship at the Division I level. The Aggie women won six titles en route to a program-best 864 points.

At that meet, the UCD team broke 10 school records, one Big West mark and two meet records, while achieving nine NCAA ÒBÓ Consideration times.

Junior Blue Devils

ItÕs that time of year again.

The Davis Junior Blue Devils youth tackle football program kicks off the fall season with a three-day, noncontact football camp July 27- 29 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Davis HighÕs Halden Field.

Players should dress in shorts and a T-shirt.

This camp will be run by the experienced football staff from Davis High and many of the current Blue Devils will be there to make sure each football player gets a head start on the season, Òand has lots of fun,Ó according to Junior Blue Devil publicist Miriam Fisk.

The camp is free to all future Blue Devils who have previously registered for the upcoming DJBD season.

If an athlete is still undecided and just wants to give it a try, he or she can participate in the camp for just $30.

Registration is walk-up only on July 27 (beginning at 8:30 a.m.).

For more information on the Davis Junior Blue Devil program, the July football camp or registration materials, visit http://www.juniorbluedevils.com or call DJBD President Al Inouye at (916) 769-7768.

Note that due to construction, players will need to enter the football field from behind the visitorsÕ bleachers on the east side of Halden.
