Sports briefs: 13 is the lucky number for local track standouts

By
From page B6 | June 29, 2014 |

A pair of 2007 Davis High graduates who each had standout college careers at Bay Area universities, now have one more thing in common.

Brendan Gregg and Chelsea Reilly each took 13th place on Friday as they ran the 5,000 meters at the U.S. Track and Field Outdoor Championships in front of hometown fans at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium.

Gregg, a former Stanford star now running with Brooks Hansons, came back one night after his seventh-place finish in the men’s 10,000 meters (28:48.22) to post a 13:56.18 in the 5,000.

One-time Cal standout Reilly (Saucony) crossed in 16:07.79 in the women’s race. Before the event, she wrote of her excitement in her blog at http://chelseareillyruns.com.

“I. Can’t. Wait. I grew up 20 minutes from the stadium, so this practically feels like a home meet. My dad took me to Hornet Stadium in 2004 to watch the Olympic Trials — I was in awe of everyone out there competing. I’m beyond fired up to have my opportunity.”

Reilly is a two-time national champion, having won the 2012 U.S. Road 10K and the 2013 U.S. Indoor 3K.

Another runner with local ties, former UCD speedster Lauren Wallace, also saw action on Friday at the Outdoor Championships as she was in the semifinals of the 800 meters.

Wallace, who was a 2012 All-American in the event for the Aggies, ran a 2:02.16 in Thursday’s prelims, then took 11th in Friday’s finals when she crossed in 2:04.93.

Wallace runs with Oiselle and, like 2012 Olympian Kim Conley who won the women’s 10,000 meters at the championships on Thursday, is a volunteer assistant for the UCD track and field program.

Sac Republic FC

For the second straight matchup, Sacramento Republic FC couldn’t find the net in a road outing at Oklahoma City, this time losing to the Energy FC, 2-0, on Saturday.

The locals actually controlled play in the first half, but good looks at goal from midfielders George Fochive and Rodrigo Lopez came up empty leading to a scoreless opening period for both teams.

Sacramento’s Carlos Martinez had his shot hit the cross bar and bounce away early in the second half, then the hosts took over with goals by Mark Howard (53rd minute) and Mikey Lopez (67th).

“In these games if you don’t finish your chances, they come back to haunt you,” Martinez said. “We were the better team, we just couldn’t find the back of the net.”

Republic FC, which fell to 8-5-2 is back at Bonney Field on Friday to take on the Orange County Blues FC at 7:30 p.m.

Watney on the PGA Tour

Davis High graduate Nick Watney rebounded from a poor second round in the Quicken Loans National at Congressional by shooting a 2-under 69 on Saturday.

That matched Watney’s first-round score, and put the former Blue Devil standout back to even for the tournament, which ends Sunday in Bethesda, Maryland. He entered the final round in a tie for 21st, six strokes behind leader Patrick Reed.

After shooting a 4-over 75 on Friday, Watney came back Saturday to play the front nine at 1-under par. After bogeying No. 11, he bounced back to birdie 12 and 13 then played even the rest of the way.

Watney is set to play with Jordan Spieth on Sunday with a 9:35 a.m. tee time.
