Five UC Davis women’s gymnasts — seniors Madeline Kennedy and Anna Shumaker, junior Lisa Wiktorski, sophomore Jamie Yamashita and redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki — were honored on Thursday when the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced its All-Academic squad.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must hold a GPA of 3.0 or higher, have at least sophomore academic standing, have completed one full academic year at the institution prior to the season and have competed in a minimum of 50 percent of the team’s competitions during that year.

This is the third such award for Kennedy, whose 3.48 grade-point average in exercise biology leads the five Aggies. Shumaker and Wiktorski each picked up their second honor, while Nogaki and Yamashita garnered their first.

On the mat this season, UCD ranked 34th in the nation in regional-qualifying score to earn the program’s first team berth into NCAA postseason competition since 1998. The Aggies, who set or tied school records in all four events plus total score during the year, placed fifth at the Fayetteville Regional earlier this month.

Hurricanes soccer

Competing at last weekend’s Comstock Shootout in Carson City, the Davis Hurricanes, a U10 girls soccer team, posted one win and dominated its division in the Goalie Wars.

Bracket play began Saturday against an aggressive Pleasant Hill Xtreme squad and some controversial calls hurt the locals in a 3-0 loss.

Davis then bounced back to defeat the Carson Valley Rebels, 2-0. With Charlotte Macauley and Susannah Estrada scoring a pair of quick goals, the Hurricanes got strong defense from Ella Herringer and goalies Devon Morris and Alexis Garrett to finish off the shutout.

Later that night, with about 40 players from Northern California on hand to watch, four Hurricanes — Garrett, Bethany McElhern, Molly Mahoney and Estrada — competed in the Goalie Wars.

And when the suspenseful event came to a close, Estrada had won the age group, with Mahoney in third.

The locals completed their tournament on Sunday with a 2-0 loss to the Mount Diablo Phoenix. Despite the loss, Kiana Bagheban excelled for the Davis defense.

Yolo Post 77

Local baseball players who were born on of before Jan. 1, 1995, are invited to try out for the Yolo Post 77 American Legion team on May 17-18 at Clark Field in Woodland.
