\n

Liliana Alvarez, Kayleigh Foley and Linda Hermann each won two individual events on Saturday to lead the UC Davis women\’s swimming and diving team to a 200-93 Senior Day

\n

victory over Cal State Bakersfield at Schaal Aquatics Center.

\n

It was the Aggies\’ third straight dual-meet win and moved their overall record to 9-2. UCD remains undefeated in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation with a 4-0 record.

\n

Hermann, one of eight Aggie seniors honored in a pre-meet ceremony, finished first in the 200 freestyle, clocking in at 1:56.04, and won the 200 backstroke when she touched the wall in 2:07.16. She also swam a 2:08.54 in the 200 individual medley and picked up a second-place finish as part of the 200 medley relay B squad.

\n

Foleys wins came in the sprint freestyle events as the junior led an Aggie sweep of the 50 free, finishing first in a time of 23.94. She was followed by teammates Katelyn Griffin, who was second in 24.59, and Morgan Lee, who placed third with a 25.18.

\n

Foley also won the 100 free when she swam a 51.43.

\n

Alvarez was victorious in both breaststroke events, winning the 100 breast in a time of 1:04.25 and edging senior teammate Heidi Kucera in the 200 breast with a 2:23.16. Kucera was second in 2:23.92 and was followed by Alyssa Britt\’s third-place time of 2:28.70.

\n

Sarah Winters won the 1,000 free in a season-best time of 10:31.72, while Ashley Chandler clocked a 57.69 in the 100 back to win the event.

\n

UCD also swept the 200 butterfly with freshman Karley Troup (2:11.59) leading Britt, who finished second and Madeline Talt.

\n

In diving, Erica Stricker won both the one-meter (227.18) and three-meter (238.73) events. Aggie freshman Lauren Jesse was second on the low board, while Nicole Bahbout was the runner-up on the high board.

\n

UCD closes out the dual meet season with back-to-back competitions at Cal Poly (on Friday) and UC Santa Barbara (on Saturday).

UCD women\’s water polo

\n

Senior defender Ashley Chandler and sophomore attacker Jessica Dunn each scored three goals to lead the Aggies to a 13-3 win over Cal State Bakersfield during the Cal Invitational tournament at Spieker Aquatic Center Saturday.

\n

UCD, ranked 17th in the national preseason poll, also lost a 13-5 exhibition game to the Canadian

\n

national team earlier in the day.

\n

Remarkably, Chandler\’s team-leading output came mere hours after winning her backstroke event in a home swimming dual against the Roadrunners earlier in the day.

\n

Also supplying offense for the Aggies against Bakersfield was Carmen Eggert with two goals; and Katie Schlueter, Ariel Feeney, Rachelle Smith, Lyndsay Sutterley and Hannah Curran with one apiece. Sophomore goalkeeper Riane Woods tallied three saves.

\n

UCD returns to action next weekend in the Spartan Invitational. The Aggies will face No. 7 San Jose State, Cal State Monterey Bay, No. 3 California and Santa Clara.

\n

UCD women\’s tennis

\n

The Aggies started the weekend — and their dual-meet season — with a 4-3 win over Iowa State on Saturday in Tempe, Ariz. UCD took two out of three doubles matches, while splitting in the singles matches en route to the victory.

\n

Aggies Megan Heneghan and Kelly Chui defeated Maria Macedo and Tessa Lang, 8-3, in the No. 1 doubles match, while Ellie Edles and Lauren Curry won 8-5 at No. 3 doubles.

\n

With a 1-0 advantage heading into singles competition, UCD got three wins, all by freshmen. Heneghan had the first singles win for the Aggies in the No. 2 position, Nicole Koehly

\n

defeated Jenna Langhorst, 6-4, 6-4 In the No. 4 spot and Chui clinched the match for UCD with her come from behind victory.

\n

The Aggies will conclude their road trip today with a 10 a.m. match against Arizona State.

\n

\n

UCD men\’s tennis

\n

The Aggies are still looking for their first point of the year, after dropping a 7-0 decision at Santa Clara in Saturday\’s season opener. The Broncos improved to 2-0 with the sweep.

\n

Santa Clara took a close win in the first doubles match, when Kyle Dandan and Nicholas Vinel defeated UCD\’s Toki Sherbakov and Nick Lopez, 7-6 and 7-4 in the tiebreaker.

\n

The Broncos dominated the singles matches, winning all but one match in two sets. Maxime Armengaud\’s narrow victory over Aggie Connor Coates in the No. 2 position, 6-1, 5-7, 1-0 (10-4) was the only close contest.

\n

UCD plays its home opener next weekend, an early conference match against Pacific on Saturday at noon. The Aggies also face local rival Sac State at home on Sunday at 11 a.m.

UCD gymnastics

\n

Aggie freshman Anna Shumaker captured both the individual vault and balance beam titles, leading to a 1-2-3 sweep in the latter, to help UCD post a winning 191.950 team score in a dual meet at Cal State Fullerton on Friday. The host Titans scored a 186.125.

\n

Shumaker scored a 9.800 to win the vault title by nearly a full point, then closed with a 9.775 on beam to finish ahead of teammates Erika Van Dyke (9.750) and Michele Hurlock (9.725). As a team, the Aggies (4-1) scored a 48.550 on balance beam, tied for fifth-best in school history. Seniors Stacey Nicolini and Marcy Miller scored 9.675 and 9.625, respectively, to round out the UCD total.

\n

Miller, who has won the first two Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Year awards, won the uneven bars with a 9.675. She also took second in the all-around at 38.400.

\n

Van Dyke put together a solid two-event night for the Aggies, who outscored their hosts on each of the four events. Besides her second-place mark on beam, she hit a 9.650 on floor to

\n

finish third. Sophomore Michelle Ho turned in a 9.700 on floor to place second, while classmate Katie Yamamura tied for second on bars (9.650) and added a fourth on floor (9.625).

\n

UCD finishes a string of three straight road meets with a dual at Seattle Pacific on Friday.
