Sports briefs: Blue Devil boys whip Wildcats in tennis

By From page B8 | March 26, 2014

The Davis High boys tennis team dropped just 10 games in winning all 18 sets easily to defeat visiting Franklin, 9-0, on Monday.

It was the third consecutive Delta Valley Conference win for the Blue Devils.

All three DHS doubles team cruised, each dropping just one game in their straight-set victories. James Cole and Victor Li teamed up at No. 1, senior Alexander Michelmore joined classmate Dennis Tian at No. 2 and juniors Angus Yip and Matt Dong took care of the Wildcats’ No. 3 squad.

It was more of the same in singles, with Louis Pak setting the pace by winning 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3. In addition, Davis’ top player Dan Segedin won his match, 6-1, 6-0 — a score that was matched by Chase Kellison at No, 4 — while Tris Dutta captured the No. 2 matchup, 6-0, 6-1.

Alex Chen and freshman Jeff Yin rounded out the Devil dominance with 6-2, 6-0 wins at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.

UCD men’s tennis

The Aggies posted their second shutout in as many days on Tuesday, sweeping all nine matches in a 7-0 victory over visiting Hawaii-Hilo at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

With the win, UCD (11-6) completed its six-game homestand at 6-0.

Due to weather concerns, the two teams opened with singles, where the Aggies didn’t lose more than three games in any of their six straight-set victories.

Sophomore Brett Bacharach, making his first start at No. 1 after winning his 20th match of the season against Eastern Washington on Monday, and classmate Mitch Thorp, the No. 6 player Tuesday, pushed their personal win streaks to five and four matches, respectively.

UCD freshman Bryce McKelvie won his 10th consecutive singles match at No. 4, while victories by No. 2 Alec Adamson, No. 3 Parker Kelley and No. 5 Adam Levie rounded out the singles sweep.

UCD women’s golf

Betty Chen was in second place and Paige Lee was ninth as the 37th-ranked Aggies move into third place during Tuesday’s second round of the Anuenue Spring Break Classic on The Bay Course on Maui.

Chen fired an even round of 72 and was 2-under for the week, while Lee moved into a tie for ninth at 3-over.

The duo helped UCD (8-over 296) improve its first-round score by two shots. The locals were at 18-over with one round remaining.

Aggie Beverly Vatananugulkit carded a 75 in the second round and was tied for 27th at 8-over, Andrea Wong had a 76 and was tied for 41st at 11-over and Blair Lewis finished with an 82 and was tied for 61st at 15-over.


Fans will be able to follow the Aggie baseball and softball teams during trips to Southern California this spring as UCD will make five appearances on ESPN3.

The Aggie baseball team makes its 2014 television debut on Friday, April 4, at preseason No. 1 ranked Cal State Fullerton, the defending league champion. That game starts at 7 p.m. from Goodwin Field.

Two weeks later, UCD and UC Riverside face off at the Riverside Sports Complex, with the first two games of the series (April 18 at 6 p.m. and April 19 at 1 p.m.) picked up by the network.

The Aggies’ softball team will make an appearance during its final road trip of the season, as its series-opening doubleheader at Cal State Fullerton on May 3 will be shown live from Anderson Family Field. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m. with the nightcap to follow approximately 30 minutes after the end of Game 1.

Free tennis clinic

The UCD men’s and women’s tennis programs will team up to host a free kids clinic on Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

Due to NCAA restrictions, the event is only open to kids in first through eighth grades.

The youngsters will learn all aspects of the game from Aggie players and coaches and a fun “hit for prizes” event will be held at the end of the clinic.
