SANTA CLARA Ñ Junior center Aaron Salit scored a total of nine goals in two games to lead

11th-ranked UC Davis to a 9-6 win over No. 20 Brown and an 11-9 double-overtime victory over No. 15 Cal Baptist at the Rodeo menÕs water polo tournament at Sullivan Aquatic Center on Saturday.

The Aggies improved to 14-6 for the year.

Salit tallied a team-high four goals in the dayÕs opener against Brown, helping UCD pull away from a tight 3-2 halftime battle. Walter Eggert added two goals, while Cory Lyle, Matt Richardson and Mattie Stone chipped in one each for the Aggies. UCD junior goalie Kevin Peat tallied 11 saves.

In the nightcap, Salit netted five goals, with Lyle and Eggert contributing two scored each. The Aggies led 5-2 after the first period, but Lancer junior Brent Troutman posted a hat trick to help CBU rally back to a 9-9 tie at the end of regulation.

UCD held the Lancers scoreless in extra frames, while scoring twice itself to claim the win.

The Aggies take on Western Water Polo Association foe Air Force at 10:15 this morning, then finish the Rodeo tourney with a 4:30 p.m. contest against Bucknell. The Bison were tied with Brown for the 20th spot in WednesdayÕs national rankings.

UCD volleyball

Junior middle blocker Betsy Sedlak had 10 kills and tied a career-high with nine blocks, while senior libero Kayla Varney tallied a match-high 17 digs and three of her teamÕs eight aces, lifting the Aggies to a 25-16, 25-11, 25-17 sweep of UC Riverside at Hickey Gym on Saturday.

Sedlak, who posted seven blocks in the first set, committed just one hitting error in 15 swings for a .600 hitting average. Whitson hammered away at a .429 clip, and senior opposite Melanie Adams delivered 8-2-17

hitting with five blocks. As a team, UCD (15-7, 6-3 Big West) compiled 11 stuffs. On offense, the Aggies outhit the Highlanders (2-21, 0-9) by a .318 to .059 margin, holding a 40-26 edge in total kills.

The Aggie net play began to surface midway in the first frame when Sedlak combined with

freshman Morgan Borch on an assist then followed with a solo during a run of six straight, giving the Aggies a 15-7 lead. Sedlak later teamed up on four straight block assists to extend the UCD advantage to 22-11.

The Aggies jumped out to a 6-1 start in the second set, then held an 11-5 lead after WhitsonÕs ace sent the Highlanders to a timeout. Reserve middle blocker Winsome Hitchcock put down a pair of kills to close out the victory and send UCD to the break with a 2-0 match lead.

Overall, UCD hit .370 and .407 in the first two sets, compared to UCRÕs efficiency rates of .031 and .062.

The Aggies scored 10 of the first 12 points in the third set thanks in part to four kills and a block assist from Sedlak.

Sedlak finished the week with 17 total blocks, having tallied eight in UCDÕs five-set win at San Francisco on Tuesday.

The Aggies return to action for road Big West matches at UC Irvine and Cal State Northridge on Friday and Saturday.

UCD field hockey

The Aggies went up against No. 6 Ohio State on Saturday but dropped a 4-0 contest at neutral site Ocker Field in Ann Arbor, Mich. Coyle Aisling recorded three goals for the Buckeyes to bring her total to 21 on the year and lead OSU to the win.

UCD (5-8) hung tough in the first half, trailing just 1-0 at intermission, before the Buckeyes (13-3) used three second-half goals to put the game out of reach.

OSU got the early score by taking advantage of an Aggie miscue in the third minute. Aisling converted on a penalty stroke, to start on her way to a hat trick. But despite nine shots and three penalty corners for the Buckeyes in the first half, UCD did not surrender another goal in the first half.

The Aggies had two shots of their own before the break, one of which was on goal, but they couldnÕt find the back of the cage.

ÒThe team played well against OSU, held them defensively as much as we could especially in the first half,Ó said UCD head coach Vianney Campos. ÒWe found ourselves controlling a good amount of the possession but couldnÕt get results in the circle. Against a team like OSU, our low number of opportunities need to be converted.Ó

In the second half, Aisling posted two more goals to make it 3-0, while UCD had three shots in the second half, with two on goal, but remained scoreless for the game.

The Buckeyes added one more goal in the 68th minute, with Jena CacciatoreÕs ninth goal of the season making it 4-0.

Lauren Sawvelle recorded a complete game in goal for the Aggies, and finished with four saves for the day.

UCD is back in action today, staying in Ann Arbor to play No. 12 Michigan at 8 a.m.

UCD womenÕs swimming

Heidi Kucera and freshman Liliana Alvarez went 1-2 in the 200 breaststroke and the Aggies took

second place in eight individual events during their season-opening meet against UCLA and Loyola Marymount at Spieker Aquatics Center in Los Angeles on Friday.

UCD defeated LMU, 217-76, but fell to UCLA by a score of 165-121 to open the season with a 1-1 record. UCLA also topped LMU, 171.5-100.5.

The Aggies opened the meet with a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay as the A squad of Linda Hermann, Alvarez, Megan Leung and Kayleigh Foley combined for a time of 1:45.32.

In the 1,000 freestyle, Grace Benefield and Bridget Bugbee finished second and third,

respectively, as Benefield clocked in at 10:39.50 and Bugbee recorded a time of 10:42.94.

Hermann finished second in the 200 free with a time of 1:52.03, while Kucera placed fourth in a time of 1:54.35. Freshmen Sabrina Cochrane (1:56.76) and Maya Sprinsock (1:58.88) were sixth and seventh in the event.

AlvarezÕs second-place finish in the 100 breast earned UCD key points as she clocked in with a time of 1:04.79. Morgan Lee and DHS graduate Julie Peri finished sixth and seventh.

KuceraÕs winning time in the 200 breast was 2:20.04, while AlvarezÕs second-place time was 2:21.31. Lee finished fourth and Peri came in sixth.

Foley finished second in the 100 free, Hermann was second in the 200 back, Jenah Dawson was fourth to lead the Aggies in the 200 butterfly and UCD top finisher in the 100 backstroke was freshman Joann Liang, who was fourth.

The 50 free was the closest of all the events as a mere .03 seconds divided first place from fourth place. Foley ended up fourth for UCD as she was barely outtouched with her time of 24.26. Ashley Chandler was fifth with a time of 24.34.

Bugbee and Madeline Talt finished second and third, respectively, in the 500 free and the Aggies finished second and third in the 100 fly as Leung touched the wall in a time of 57.81, while Dawson was third.

Kucera also took second in the 200 individual medley, and UCD closed the meet with a win in the 400 free relay as Chandler, Bugbee, Cochrane and Foley combined for a time of 3:34.17.

In one-meter diving, Jennifer Meyer finished fifth with a score of 195.45. Lauren Jesse was second on the high board with a score of 200.03.

The Aggies will travel to Stockton to face Pacific and Nevada on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
