Four-time All-Big West Conference selection Megan Heneghan, two-time Big West Track Athlete of the Year Ashley Marshall and Big West men’s golf individual champion Matt Hansen will be named the winners of UC Davis Athletics’ three annual awards, according to an announcement this week.

Heneghan, the 2014 Big West Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year selection, will receive the W.P. Lindley Award as the Aggies’ outstanding student-athlete.

Marshall, who helped lead UCD to its third consecutive conference track and field title and is participating in this week’s NCAA Prelmins, has been named the Dr. Hubert Heitman Award winner as the Aggies’ outstanding female student-athlete. Hansen, a four-time All-Big West selection who set a school record for stroke average in 2013-14, gets the Colby E. “Babe” Slater Award as the school’s outstanding male student-athlete.

All three awards will be presented during the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame and Student Awards Ceremony on Saturday, June 7, at Freeborn Hall. The event also features the induction of longtime cross county and track mentor Sue Williams, women’s basketball standout Jessica Campbell, football’s John Faletoese, water polo player Christi Raycraft Warner, baseball’s Tony Schifano and track and field’s Tanisha Silas (Young).

Additionally, former aquatics standout turned legendary water polo coach Dante Dettamanti becomes the fourth recipient of the Aggie Legacy Award for outstanding achievements in an athletics-related field since leaving the university.

Heneghan, a senior from Tustin, capped an outstanding Aggie career by finishing 18-10 overall and 13-5 in dual matches atop the team’s singles lineup this season. She teamed with partner Melissa Kobayakawa to finish 18-3 in doubles — a mark that included a school-record 16 consecutive wins to close out the season — as the pair earned all-conference honorable mention.

Heneghan also shined in the classroom, twice earning Big West All-Academic Team accolades as well as Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athlete honors as a sophomore and junior.

Marshall, a junior from Moreno Valley, successfully defended her Big West titles in both the 100- (11.36) and 200-meter (23.85) sprints at the conference championship meet earlier this month, narrowly missing her own meet record in the 100. She also was part of the Aggies’ school-record 4×100 relay that finished in 45.02 in an early-season meet and was second at the Big West Championships.

Marshall is currently ranked 11th in the country in the 100.

One of 27 players selected to the PING All-West Region team in 2013-14 and a strong candidate for All-America honors, Hansen capped a stellar career by winning two of his final three tournaments, including back-to-back wins at the Aggies’ own El Macero Classic and the Big West Championship.

The senior from Los Osos was 29-under-par for the season en route to first-team All-Big West honors.

Notes: Other nominees for the Lindley Award include Hannah Curran (water polo), Taylor Jern (soccer), Melissa Kobayakawa (tennis) and Ana Marija Sola (soccer). Considered for the Heitman Award were Liliana Alvarez (swimming), Alycia Cridebring (cross country, track & field), Sydnee Fipps (basketball), Allyson Hansen (water polo), Heneghan (tennis), Jern (soccer), Elizabeth Landry (lacrosse), Cloey LemMon (field hockey), Anna Shumaker (gymnastics) and Sola (soccer). In the running for the Slater Award were Marcus Johnson (track & field), Gabe Manzanares (football), Bernie Rogers (water polo) and Omar Zeenni (soccer). … more information about the 2014 Hall of Fame class is available at www.ucdavisaggies.com/genrel/031214aaa.html.
