Nine Aggies make Arthur Ashe squad

By
July 14, 2010 |

An impressive nine UC Davis student-athletes were selected as 2009-10 Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholars by the publication Diverse: Issues In Higher Education. Five of the Aggies earned first-team accolades, two more made the second team, one appeared on the third team and another garnered honorable mention.

UCDÕs first-team honorees are senior Lauren Dobashi (womenÕs golf), junior Jelani Floyd (menÕs basketball), sophomore Betsy Lim (womenÕs gymnastics), senior Avreeta Singh (womenÕs volleyball) and sophomore Christina Miyabe (womenÕs water polo). Senior Daniel Cepin (baseball) and junior Shawdee Rouhafza (womenÕs tennis) each picked up second-team nods. Junior Bianca Castillo (softball) appears on the third-team roster, while sophomore Aisha Lott (womenÕs soccer) claimed honorable mention.

This is the third Arthur Ashe Jr. award for Dobashi and Singh in as many years. They joined water polo player Lindsay Kiyama and tennis player Nick Lopez among the four Aggie winners in 2008-09, while making the list of five UCD honorees in 2007-08.

Dobashi, from Gold River, finished her collegiate career as a design and communication double major, while Avreeta Singh, of Fresno, majored in exercise biology.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must self-identify as a student of color, hold a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or higher, have completed one academic year of course work prior to nomination, have competed on an intercollegiate team during the current academic year, and demonstrate a record of service to the campus and/or community.

Kreidler is perfect

Davis resident and young baseball standout Ryan Kreidler tossed a perfect game for his Stockton-based Bomberz Baseball traveling team in the championship of the Dreams Park national invitational in Cooperstown, N.Y., last month.

The 12-year-old was perfect in a 14-0 victory over a team from Georgia, as Bomberz Baseball survived the 104-team bracket and went 11-0 to win the title.

Kreidler struck out 10, including the last eight, to clinch the championship. His batterymate that day, catcher Landon Gastelum, is from Elk Grove and the squad also included Josh Urps from the Sacramento area.

While winning the prestigious event, KreidlerÕs team still found time to go to Boston to watch the Red Sox and Dodgers.

Field hockey nights

The July Nights program provides new and returning field hockey players the chance to develop and hone their skills before the August tryouts and the start of the fall season. Those interested in trying out for field hockey, learning more about the sport or sharpening skills for tryouts are encouraged to attend.

July Nights sessions are free, and are held every Tuesday and Thursday in July from 5 to 6 p.m. for beginners and 6 to 7 p.m. for returning players.
