Sports briefs: Aggie men ranked 11th in water polo poll

From page B2 | August 28, 2014 |

The UC Davis men’s team tied its highest preseason ranking in program history, checking it at 11th in the Collegiate Water Polo Association’s preseason coaches’ poll.

In 2013, coach Daniel Leyson’s first at the helm, the Aggies reached the Western Water Polo Association title game for the sixth time and posted a 14-13 record despite taking on 23 nationally ranked opponents — more than any other conference member. Their No. 12 final rank represented a five-place jump from their preseason outlook last fall.

Stanford is the 2014 preseason No. 1, followed by defending NCAA champ USC, UCLA, Cal and Pacific. UC San Diego, at No. 10, is the highest ranked WWPA squad and will host UCD when it plays its season opener at the Triton Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 6.

UCD men’s soccer

Building upon an already impressive preseason award haul, Aggie senior defender Ramon Martin Del Campo was included on Top Drawer Soccer’s preseason list of the nation’s top 100 collegiate players, which was announced on Wednesday.

In a ranking that will be updated on a weekly basis, Martin Del Campo was among five Big West Conference players selected to the list, joining CSUN duo Sagi Lev-Ari and Edwin Rivas, UC Irvine’s Mario Ortiz and UC Santa Barbara’s Ismaila Jome.

Martin Del Campo, from Chula Vista,  kicked off the month of August as a call-up with the United States U23 men’s national team and was named to the Big West Preseason All-Conference Team.

A member of the San Jose Earthquakes’ Premier Development League squad over the summer, Martin Del Campo helped his side to a 7-4-3 record and a third-place finish in its inaugural season. He was voted to the All-PDL first team, All-Western Conference first team and was one of three finalists for the league’s Young Player of the Year award.

Martin Del Campo and the Aggies officially kick off their 2014 campaign, taking on host Ohio State on Friday (4:30 p.m.) in the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic.

Labor Day Races

The Golden Valley Harriers present the 19th annual running of the popular Labor Day Races, which will begin at Central Park in downtown Davis on Monday.

Runners will be timed on the flat course, which winds through shaded streets, bike paths and North Davis greenbelts. There are 5K, 10K and Kids Fun Run 1K races.

Online registration closes at 5 p.m. on Friday — and costs $30 for 5K or 10K participants — but runners can sign up on site on Saturday, Sunday and Monday for $32.

To register online, visit www.runningguru.com/EventInformation.asp?eID=11508.

On-site registration and packet pickup are available at the Davis Commons Whole Foods Market, First and E streets, on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at Central Park on Monday from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Sign-ups for the Kids’ Fun Run will go until 10:15 a.m. on race day.

A designer “tech shirt” is included for the first 1,000 entrants in the 5K and 10K outings, otherwise runners will receive a standard cotton tee.

Participants in the free Kids’ Fun Run 1K also get a T-shirt.

Those who are interested will enjoy a delicious and heathy runners’ breakfast after completing the course. The food is provided by Whole Foods Market. The local band Wealth of Nations will perform in the park after the race, while The Mad Cows, Get Fit Davis, Elliptigo, Team in Training and Total Body Fitness will have booths at the event.

The Labor Day Races also serve as a cultural exchange event with Davis’ sister city, Inuyama, Japan.

Golden Valley Harriers, a Davis running club, is dedicated to supporting running in the community. Last year, more than $12,000 was raised and given to local running programs. This year’s beneficiaries will include the cross country programs of Davis, Woodland, Dixon and River City high schools; the Friends of Inuyama; and Team Davis, which serves athletes with special needs.

Shoe donations also will be collected for the Sacramento Food Bank and Families Services; those that are not fit for use will be donated to the Nike Reuse-a-Shoe program.
