Sports briefs: Aggies are winners in Reno

From page B8 | September 06, 2013 |

The UC Davis women’s volleyball team left no doubt in winning its first match of the season, sweeping host Nevada on Thursday in the opener of the Wolf Pack Invitational.

In the 27-25, 25-19, 25-21 victory, junior outside hitter Valerie Brain posted 10 kills while middle blocker Victoria Lee provided a .636 hitting average with four blocks for the Aggies (1-3).

Brain committed just two hitting errors in 28 swings for a .286 success rate. Lee had eight kills against just one attack error for her .636 clip. Senior Devon Damelio chipped in another nine kills while junior Megan Lancaster, who earned the starting nod at libero, paced UCD with 10 digs.

The Aggies continue tournament play with a match against Weber State on Friday at 3:30 p.m. The match will be broadcast live on www.ucdavisaggies.com.

Weltz stays on U.S. squad

2012 Olympian Scott Weltz, a former Aggie standout and current UCD volunteer assistant coach, was officially named to the 2013-14 U.S. Swimming National Team, this week. The two-time Big West Conference Male Athlete of the Year is one of six American swimmers slated for the 200-meter breaststroke, a distinction he will hold for the second straight season.

Selection to the national roster is based on the combined results of the four meets from the current calendar year: the 2013 Phillips 66/USA Swimming Nationals and World Championship Trials, the 2013 World University Games, the 2013 World Championships and the 2013 U.S. Open.

Weltz made the cut by virtue of his meet-record 2:10.36 at the U.S. Open. He defeated Cody Miller of Indiana University and Naoya Tomita of the University of New Mexico.

Weltz, a native of San Jose, represents UC Davis Aquatics and is coached by Pete Motekaitis.
