It was another dominating performance by the Davis High boys tennis team on Monday, winning 9-0 at Elk Grove.

The Blue Devils (8-3, 5-0 Delta Valley Conference) allowed the Thundering Herd to get one game or less in eight of the matches, with No. 1 singles player Dan Segedin still in control during his 6-3, 6-4 victory.

As for the rest of the DHS singles lineup, Louis Pak (at No. 2) and David Wang (at No. 4) were perfect, 6-0, 6-0, winners, while Chase Kellison won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 3, Victor Li did the same at No. 5 and Cooper Hosley’s triumph at No. 6 came by the score of 6-1, 6-0.

In doubles, the Devils won 6-0 6-0 at No. 1 — with Scott Lucio and Jasper Murphy teaming up — and No. 2, where Yoshi Wainwright joined James Cole. Kyle Qi and Dennis Tian got past Elk Grove’s No. 3 duo, 6-1, 6-0.

Davis heads back out on the road to face Franklin on Wednesday at 3:45 p.m.

UCD men’s golf

Aggie senior Joshua Granger fired rounds of 68 and 67 on Monday at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic, moving to 5-under and into second place, while leading UCD to sixth place.

Competing at Talking Stick Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., the Aggies opened the day by shooting a 3-over 283 team score then came back in the afternoon to card a collective 288. UCD (+11) leads seventh-place Santa Clara (+12) by one stroke.

Granger’s outstanding day, sparked by nine birdies, led the Aggies and he is on pace to eclipse his previous-best career finish — a tie for 14th place at The Prestige at PGA WEST in 2011. He was just two shots behind Gonzaga’s Sean Walsh, who led the field after Day 1.

In addition, UCD senior Matt Hansen opened his day with a 69, had a 75 in the second round and was tied for 34th at 4-over. Ben Corfee, from El Macero, was tied for 42nd after his second-round 70 and an opening-round 75, leaving him at 5-over. Luke Vivolo, who went 72-76, was tied for 59th at 8-over while Jonny Baxter was tied for 88th after shooting 74-78 to get to 12-over.

UCD women’s golf

Sophomore standouts Betty Chen and Andrea Wong each shot even-par 72s in Sunday’s final round PING/ASU Invitational to help the 39th-ranked Aggies move up the leaderboard for the second straight day.

UCD shot a 7-over 295 on Sunday and eventually finished in a tie for 11th — with No. 5 Oklahoma — playing the Karsten Golf Course at 29-over 884. In all, 12 top-50 teams competed at the three-day event.

Chen, who had her second par round of the weekend, tied for 17th at 1-over, while Wong tied for 50th at 9-over. Additionally for the Aggies, junior Beverly Vatananugulkit shot 74 to tie for 40th at 7-over, freshman Paige Lee finished with a 77, tying 58th at 12-over, and senior Jessica Chulya carded an 81 to tie for 79th.

UCD now prepares for the Big West finals in San Luis Obispo on Sunday, entering as the four-time defending champion.

UCD baseball

Five Cal State Fullerton pitchers combined on a five-hitter Sunday afternoon, helping the host and 18th-ranked Titans to a series-clinching 9-1 victory over the Aggies in front of 1,939 fans at Goodwin Field.

UCD (14-14, 1-5 Big West Conference) left nine runners on base in the loss — including seven in scoring position — but got its only run in the seventh.

With their team down 5-0, Spencer Brann and Austin March led off the inning with back-to-back singles, and the Aggies loaded the bases when Tino Lipson drew a walk. Titans reliever Willie Kuhl entered from the bullpen and promptly walked Seth Batty on five pitches, forcing in Brann for the Aggies’ only run of the game.

UCD is at Stanford on Tuesday at 6 p.m. before coming home to take on Long Beach State for a weekend series beginning Friday at 2:30 p.m.

UCD softball

Shortstop Christa Castello went 2-for-4 to lead her team in hitting, but the rest of the Aggies didn’t give her much help in a 4-0 loss at Cal State Northridge on Sunday.

UCD (12-24, 1-5 Big West Conference) got its only other offense from Cat Guidry and Amy Nunez, who each recorded infield hits.

In addition to her single, Guidry recorded a stolen base, her eighth of the year in nine attempts for the Aggies, who are at Cal Poly this weekend, starting with a Saturday (4 p.m.) doubleheader.

UCD women’s water polo

No. 12 Long Beach State needed a goal in the final minutes to hold off the visiting 16th-ranked Aggies, 5-4, on Sunday at Campus Pool.

UCD (11-15, 0-4 Big West Conference) stayed even with the 49ers for most of the game thanks to junior goalkeeper Jillian Wilding’s nine saves.

Meanwhile, seniors Alex Rawlinson, Erin Schlueter and Hannah Curran scored for the Aggies before Long Beach found the net four times in the third quarter to go up 4-3. Two DHS graduates then teamed up to tie the match when junior Elsie Fullerton drew a five-meter foul and classmate Keelia Houston converted the penalty shot, but that was UCD’s final tally.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Sophomore Courtney Neff scored three goals while Ellie Delich added a goal and an assist, but the Aggie comeback effort fell short in a 9-6 loss to Denver on Sunday at Aggie Stadium.

The result sends UCD to 6-6 overall and 1-4 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, while the first-place Pioneers (11-1) improved to 5-0 in league play.

Delich, junior Elizabeth Landry and sophomore Mary Doyle each had a goal for UCD to support Neff’s first hat trick of the year. Landry also had four draw controls while Doyle added another three.

Aggie goalkeeper Jordan Majka, who entered the game in the 21st minute, tallied three saves with three goals against as Denver had leads of 5-0 and 9-3 before UCD fought back.

UCD women’s tennis

In a battle of two of the Big West’s hottest teams, the Aggies won the doubles point before UC Irvine stormed back in singles play to post a 4-1 win on Sunday at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

UCD (11-7, 3-3) saw its six-match win streak snapped by the Anteaters (14-5, 6-0).

For the Aggies, Megan Heneghan teamed with Melissa Kobayakawa to capture their 12th consecutive doubles match, then Layla Sanders and Nicole Koehly clinched the point with an 8-7 (7-4) victory.

Northridge, which leads UCD by a half-match in the Big West standings, is at the Marya Welch Tennis Center for a 2 p.m. contest Tuesday.
