Even with the Davis High girls tennis team resting its top player on Tuesday against Laguna Creek, the Blue Devils still came away with a near-perfect 9-0 home victory.

DHS dropped just four games total in dominating the Delta Valley Conference match.

In singles, No. 1 Cat Paw U, No. 2 Kailynn Yang, No. 5 Angela Donahue and No. 6 Bailey Gary all cruised to double bagel wins for the Devils. Meanwhile, Ceci Cajandig won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 3 and No. 4 Kelly Chuck captured a 6-1, 6-0 victory.

Davis’ Jasmin Mould and Cat Archer teamed up to post pair of golden set wins at No. 2 and the duos of Megan Ewens/Eliana Jolkovsky and Michelle Bacigalupi/Grace Kaplan each won 6-1, 6-0.

The Blue Devils head back on the road for a DVC match at Monterey Trail on Thursday.

UCD women’s golf

Aggie Demi Runas posted a 2-under 70 in Tuesday’s final round to finish in a tie for second, while fellow senior Amy Simanton tied for fourth and No. 19 UCD was fourth at the Windy City Collegiate Classic hosted by Northwestern.

Runas, who captured medalist honors at last week’s Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colo., and was named Golfweek’s Player of the Week, finished this week’s event at 1-under 215, tying Lindsey Weaver of Notre Dame.

Simanton had a final-round 75, finishing even for the 54-hole tournament. She had a career-best-tying 68 during Monday’s second round, which helped her move into a share of the first-day lead.

Also for the Aggies, sophomore Beverly Vatananugulkit tied for 26th at 9-over after a 75 on Tuesday, while freshman Betty Chen also had a 75, tying for 43rd at 14-over. Freshman Andrea Wong tied for 55th at 16-over after shooting a 78.

Team USA swimming

Pete Motekaitis, the former DHS and UCD men’s swimming coach and current assistant for the Aggie women’s team, has been named to the 2012-13 USA Swimming national team staff as a personal coach for Scott Weltz.

Weltz, a former UCD standout, won the 200-meter breaststroke at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials and reached the finals of the event at the Olympics. The performance earned him a spot on the U.S. national team in both breaststroke events.

Motekaitis, whose appointment began last month, will remain on the roster for one full year. He is one of 64 coaches on the list, all of whom are eligible to participate in the national team coaching programs, to access various USA Swimming resources and to receive coaching incentives for their athletes’ performances in the “Operation Gold” competition. Last year’s Operation Gold meet was the Olympic Games.

The team of Weltz and Motekaitis jumped onto the scene earlier this year when Weltz, a 2009 honorable mention All-American as an Aggie, upset Eric Shanteau and Brendan Hansen with a trials-record 2:09.01 in the 200 breaststroke. That winning time earned Weltz a ticket to the Olympic Games in London, where he finished fifth.

This is the second time Motekaitis has been named to the U.S. national team coaching list. He previously guided Cal alumna Haley Cope on her path to two gold medals at the FINA World Championship and a silver medal at the Athens Olympics in 2004.

Motekaitis is a 1983 UCD graduate who is entering his 19th overall season with the Aggie aquatics program and his third as an assistant coach for the women’s team.

UCD cross country

Aggie sophomore Trevor Halsted, a DHS graduate, earned his first-ever Big West Player of the Week award after a 13th-place finish at the Stanford Invitational on Saturday at the Stanford Golf Course.

Halsted was UCD’s top finisher in a field of 265 runners and 29 teams, clocking a 24:37 in the men’s 8K race.

The former Blue Devil last raced at the Aggie Open on Aug. 31, winning the four-mile race in a time of 18:10.9. That day, he was nine seconds faster than the second-place runner.

UCD field hockey

Senior Casey Wollbrinck and freshman Jamie Garcia, who were both instrumental in the Aggies’ 3-1 upset of Cal on Sunday, earned NorPac Defensive Player of the Week and Co-Rookie of the Week, respectively, on Monday.

Wollbrinck, from San Jose, helped anchor a UCD defense that allowed just four shots in the game, including only one shot on goal by the Golden Bears. She took also took two shots on the offensive end of the field, one of them on goal. Wollbrinck was the only Aggie field player to play all 70 minutes.

Garcia, a midfielder from Fallbrook, earned Rookie of the Week honors for the second straight week and the third time this year. She earned the recognition this week after scoring a goal in the 28th minute that gave UCD a 2-0 lead.

Garcia has three goals and 12 points for UC Davis this season.
