From page B8 | November 02, 2012 |

Five Davis High players have been named to the all-Delta Valley Conference boys soccer team, according to Blue Devil interim coach Alex Park.

Senior netminder Derek Pleasants joins classmates Kian Bagheri, Collin Holtz and Lee LeVerrier — along with sophomore David Villegas — as first-team selections.

Davis is coming off of a 2-1 victory at McClatchy on Thursday to reach the Sac-Joaquin Section semifinals. The Devils are the defending CIF champs.

Grant and DHS shared the 2012 DVC title, and the Pacers made their presence felt on the all-league team with attacker Christian Acosta being named MVP and former Davis club player Alex Gutierrez earning Coach of the Year.

Grant also had Carlos Chavez, Jose Amezcua, David Galindo and Edgar Cazares chosen for honors.

Franklin’s Alex Gulseth and Elliot Hutcher were named, as were Monterey Trail players Alejandro Pasillas, Alijah Aleem and Andrew Logan. Braden Henderson (Elk Grove) and Brandon Arellano (Laguna Creek) were the other All-DVC players.

UCD women’s soccer

Sienna Drizin, who finished third on the Aggies in scoring, received a pair of honors on Wednesday as she was named to the All-Big West Conference second team as well as its All-Freshman team.

Drizin, a forward from Centennial High School in Las Vegas, started all 19 games for UCD (8-9-2, 3-5-1) during her first year of collegiate soccer, tallying four goals and an assist for nine points. She had 16 shots on goal, second-most on the team, and tied for team-high honors with two game-winning goals.

“I think it’s an excellent start to her career,” said Aggie head coach Maryclaire Robinson. “Among the things that Sienna brings is such spunk and such fight. And when you have that kind of pace and that kind of fight wrapped into one player, she’s a handful to defend.

“She did very well coming in as a freshman and making an impact in the conference.”

UCD men’s soccer

Aggies Mustafa Chopan and Brian Ford were named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District VIII team by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America.

Chopan earns a spot on the All-District Team for the third time in his career, while Ford makes his debut on the squad in his first year of eligibility.

Chopan has started all 18 games for UCD as a defensive midfielder, playing all but 60 minutes of the 2012 season. With a 3.94 grade point average in his major of neurobiology, physiology and behavior, and ranks in the top 1.3 percent of his class of more than  2,000 seniors in the College of Biological Sciences.

Ford, a sophomore out of Newport Beach, has likewise started all 18 games for the Aggies, manning the defense throughout the entire 2012 season. He scored his first career goal on Oct. 20 at Sacramento State, and carries a 3.64 grade point average in exercise biology.

UCD field hockey

Aggie senior defender Casey Wollbrinck was named to the All-NorPac Conference West Division team for the third consecutive year, while senior Emily Mecke was named to the league’s All-Academic team.

The awards were given at a banquet held in conjunction with the NorPac Tournament which gets underway on Thursday. UCD opens the event with an 8 a.m. game against Davidson.

Wollbrinck, from San Jose, earned distinction on the All-West team after anchoring the Aggie defense and has five points this season.

Mecke, a forward from Carlsbad, is majoring in environmental science and management and excels in both the classroom and on the field. She’s scored three goals for UCD so far this season with a pair of assists. Her 21 shots on goal lead the team as do her two game-winning goals.

UCD men’s water polo

Tenth-ranked UC San Diego built a first-half lead then held on for an 11-8 victory over No. 16 UCD in Western Water Polo Association action at Schaal Aquatics Center on Thursday.

Sophomore Trevor Allen, a DHS graduate, and senior Colin Hicks each scored two goals for the Aggies (12-15, 10-5), who trailed 6-1 at the halftime break. Freshman goalie Philip Bates tallied 10 saves, including two against UCSD power-play attempts.

Teddy Nicholson, another former Blue Devil, added a goal for UCD, which will honor seven seniors in their home finale against No. 3 Stanford on Saturday at noon.

Correction

In the JV/frosh roundup on Wednesday, a DHS JV girls water polo player was incorrectly identified. One of the team’s key contributors is named Alyssa Alvarez.
