UC Davis scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to complete a 5-4 comeback win over No. 16 Stanford in a nonconference softball contest on Wednesday at La Rue Field.

The victory is the Aggies’ second over the Cardinal in the last three head-to-head meetings as UCD (22-24) also recorded a 2-1 home win last season.

By scoring two runs in the first inning and another in the third, it was Stanford (32-17) that jumped out to an early 3-0 lead.

In the bottom of the third, however, Aggie right fielder Jasmine Lee trimmed the deficit to a more manageable one-run margin when her hard-hit chopper up the middle scored catcher J.J. Wagoner and second baseman Chandler Wagner.

Eventually, the Cardinal scored again to take a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning.

But Christina Guidry started UCD’s rally when she singled and wisely advanced to second when Stanford left fielder Leah White crashed into the fence making a catch deep in foul territory. Guidry came home on the next play when her sister, left fielder Cat Guidry, singled up the middle.

Lee followed with a base hit and, with two outs, Kelly Schulze was hit by a pitch for her Big West Conference-leading 17th time to load the bases for Christa Castello. The Aggie freshman ripped an RBI single to right, plating Cat Guidry and pinch runner Megan Guzman for a walk-off win.

The result was the third late-game victory by a UCD team over Stanford recently as the Aggies won a 2-1 baseball game on March 26 and a 15-14 lacrosse contest last Thursday.

UCD women’s golf

Senior Demi Runas was named the Big West Player of the Year for the third consecutive season and five other Aggies, along with head coach Anna Temple, also were honored when the conference announced its yearly awards.

UCD’s Andrea Wong was picked as Freshman of the Year and Temple shared Coach of the Year accolades with UC Irvine’s Julie Brooks. Joining Runas on the All-Big West first team for the fourth straight year was Aggie senior Amy Simanton, as well as Wong and sophomore Beverly Vatananugulkit. Freshmen Raegan Bremer and Betty Chen were selected honorable mention.

No. 16 UCD swept at least a share of the major awards for the second straight year after dominating the Big West Championships at San Luis Obispo last week. The four-time defending champion Aggies won the tournament by an impressive 29 strokes, setting them up for another berth in the NCAA Championships, which begin next week. They also finished 1-2-3-4 in the individual standings.

Runas, from Torrance, is 15th in the most recent Golfstat Cup rankings thanks to a standout season that has featured individual titles at the Big West Championships and the Golfweek Conference Challenge in September. She’s finished tied for second at four other tournaments and has eight top-10 placings overall.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Senior attacker Elizabeth Datino and senior midfielder Hannah Mirza made the All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation first team while freshman Mary Doyle garnered second-team honors as the league announced its year-end awards this week.

This is the second straight first-team nod for Datino, who also became the program’s first Division I-era All-Region honoree in 2012. Mirza also has won two All-MPSF awards, having earned a spot on the second team last year.

Datino, who led all D-I players in points per game last season, paced UCD with 46 goals, 66 points and a .568 shooting percentage this spring.

The former prep star at Littleton High in Colorado also joined Doyle as the conference’s final offensive and defensive players of the week on 2013.

UCD women’s water polo

Aggie senior attacker Carmen Eggert earned first-team honors while senior utility Jessica Dunn made the second team as the Big West’s 2013 awards were announced this week. This is the fourth time Dunn has garnered some form of conference award, while Eggert picks up her third nod. Both players were first-team picks in 2012.

Eggert led the Aggies in goals (80), total shots (191), 6-on-5 shooting (29-for-48), steals (55), drawn exclusions (50) and field blocks (27) this spring. The former Marin Catholic star also received an invitation to the May 17-19 tryout for the U.S. Senior National Team.

Dunn, from Los Alamitos, scored 60 goals and had a school-record 45 assists this season.

UCD men’s tennis

Kyle Miller and Toki Sherbakov each earned second team all-Big West Conference honors for singles as five Aggies earned postseason recognition this week.

Also for UCD, Parker Kelley was an honorable mention selection for singles play, Sherbakov and Adam Levie were second-team selections in doubles, where Miller and Adam Luba received honorable mention.

Miller had the Aggies’ best singles record this season, going 14-7 and 4-2 in Big West play. Sherbakov and Levie played at No. 1 doubles all year long, posting an 11-9 record overall and a 2-4 mark in conference competition.

UCD women’s tennis

Juniors Megan Heneghan, Nicole Koehly and sophomore Layla Sanders each earned All-Big West accolades this week.

Heneghan got a spot on the all-conference singles second team, while Sanders was a singles honorable mention then joined partner Koehly as a doubles honorable mention.

Heneghan has now received all-conference honors in all three of her seasons as an Aggie.

UCD track and field

Alycia Cridebring was named the Big West Female Track Athlete of the Week for the fourth time this season after a record-breaking effort in the 5,000-meter run at Stanford’s Payton Jordan Invitational on Sunday night.

Cridebring, a junior from Pleasant Hill, set a Big West and an Aggie mark in the 5K her time of 15 minutes, 49.05 seconds. The performance ranks sixth in the NCAA West Region and 12th nationally.

DHS football

The Blue Devil football program’s mandatory preseason player/parent meeting is set for Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The meeting, which is for those interested in playing freshman, JV or varsity football for DHS in the fall, will be at the Davis High library.

Discussions will include responsibilities of the players; upcoming mandatory dates of attendance; spring football; summer events like the Sierra Football Camp; new CIF eligibility rules; the Champions Camp as well as the Lift-a-Thon and other fundraisers. Critical registration, eligibility and physical forms will be explained.

At least one parent must attend. For major issues regarding attendance, contact coach Steve Smyte at [email protected]
