Following an easy 6-1 victory over UC Riverside on Saturday, the UC Davis women’s tennis team played a grueling four-hour match against Hawaii on Monday, eventually falling, 4-3.

The Big West Conference match against the Rainbow Wahine, which was a make-up after a Friday rainout, was played in windy conditions at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

After the Aggies (8-11, 3-4) swept the doubles matches for the first time all season in the win over UC Riverside, Hawaii (4-12, 3-4) captured the doubles point on Monday.

The advantage was brief, however, thanks to UCD’s Nicole Koehly, who breezed past her singles opponent, Kelsey Daguio, 6-0, 6-0.

Ellie Edles, who had teamed with Lauren Curry for the only Aggie doubles victory, completed a sweep of her individual matches with a 6-1, 6-3 singles win. Later, Laguna Creek High grad Tiffany Pham kept UCD ahead by one point with her 6-3, 6-0 singles decision.

But after that, Hawaii clinched the victory by capturing the final two singles matches.

On Saturday, Aggie duos Koehly/Layla Sanders, Megan Heneghan/Melissa Kobayakawa and Curry/Edles each won doubles matches to put the local on the right track. Sanders, Kobayakawa, Edles, Koehly and Pham added singles victories.

UCD baseball

The Aggie bullpen shut out No. 4 Cal State Fullerton for six innings on Sunday, but UCD couldn’t overcome a rough start and lost, 5-2, at Dobbins Stadium.

For the 10-19 locals, it was the sixth straight loss to start Big West Conference play. The first-place Titans (28-4) have won their first six league contests.

Aggie starting pitcher Evan Wolf (1-1) suffered his first loss of the year as he gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits in three innings with two strikeouts and one walk. UCD didn’t help its cause with five errors on the day.

Still, lefty Spencer Henderson (three scoreless innings), right-hander Patrick Hennessey (one frame) and righty Craig Lanza (two innings) completed the game, allowing just four hits combined.

The Aggies scored a run in the fifth on shortstop Evan Heptig’s RBI single to left and another in the eighth when center fielder John Williams singled in Heptig. But the Aggies left eight men on base and ground into two double plays, which stymied any rally attempt.

UCD returns to action with a nonconference home game against St. Mary’s on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.

UCD men’s golf

The Aggies were paced by DHS graduate Tyler Raber’s even-par 71 on Sunday, teammate Jonny Baxter tied for 11th overall and UCD was eighth at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational.

Baxter shot a final-round 73, posting a 54-hole total of 1-under 212 for his second-best finish this season. Raber, who was 2-under over the final two rounds, finished 1-over for the event and tied for 23rd.

Ben Corfee (43rd), from El Macero, and Matt Seramin (64th) each shot 72’s for the Aggies on Sunday, with Matt Hansen tying for 68th by shooting a 77.

UCD was 4-over in the final round and 11-over for the tournament.

UCD softball

The Aggies got a run in the first inning on Sunday but did not score again in an 8-1 loss to Cal State Northridge at La Rue Field.

UCD (15-18, 2-4 Big West) kept the game close until the Matadors (15-23, 1-5) pulled away with a six-run sixth inning.

Kayla Turner singled up the middle and scored the Aggie run in the bottom of the first and Cat Guidry went 3-for-4, while Christa Castello (two) and J.J. Wagoner had the other UCD hits.

Northridge tied things up in the second inning and took the lead for good with another run in the fourth.

The Aggies are back at La Rue Field Wednesday when they host Pacific for a 1 p.m. doubleheader.

UCD lacrosse

Aggie senior Elizabeth Datino scored a hat trick, sophomore Elizabeth Landry contributed four total points with a game-high nine draw controls but No. 20 Denver held on for a 13-11 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation victory on Sunday at Barton Lacrosse Stadium.

Landry, senior Hannah Mirza and Mary Doyle each scored two goals for UCD (3-8, 0-4). She also tied freshman Ellie Delich and sophomore Meghan Jordan for the team lead with two assists.

Doyle also had six draw controls to help the Aggies hold an 18-8 edge over the Pioneers (13-1, 5-0) in that category. UCD sophomore goalkeeper Kai Murphy posted a career-high 13 saves.

UCD track and field

A women’s 800-meter school record that stood for nearly 11 years was broken by three Aggies in a matter of hours at the Sun Angel Classic on Saturday as three UCD benchmarks fell that day at Arizona State.

Aggie senior Lauren Wallace went 2 minutes, 4.89 seconds to win the invitational 800 on Saturday night and set the new 800 record. Shanie Landen’s outstanding 2:07.87 earlier in the day and Raquel Kambdin’s 2:07.54 were also faster than the original mark, set by Rose Criss at the 2001 NCAA Division II Championships.

UCD sprinter Ashley Marshall added the other two school records on Saturday. The Aggie sophomore moved into the top spot in the 100 after winning the open event in 11.55 seconds, and then lowered her own record with a 23:54 in the invitational 200, where she finished third.

Altogether, the UCD men’s and women’s team combined for 11 marks that affected the Aggies’ all-time lists.

UCD boxing club

Colin Schmitt, a boxer with the Aggie club squad, traveled to Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut for the National Collegiate Boxing Association championship tournament last weekend.

After a unanimous decision over a boxer from West Virginia, Schmitt faced a tough Army fighter and dropped a close matchup that could have gone either way. By falling to the tournament’s eventual champion, Schmitt was accorded All-American status and earned the event’s Sportsmanship Award.

“This was a pleasant surprise, and it couldn’t have gone to a better person,” said UCD coach Hector Lopez, a Davis High graduate.

Schmitt’s performance also got him and the Aggies mentioned on an ESPN3 broadcast of the tournament.
