From page B2 | June 20, 2014 |

The Davis Youth Softball Association’s 14U summer All-Star squad made a strong run through the Stars of Cordova tournament last weekend, eventually making the semifinals.

The win to reach the semis was the first victory past pool play for the local squad in five years of elite tournament play.

In pool play, Davis used a four-run final inning to rally past Sunrise, 8-7.

Falling down 4-0 in the top of the first, the locals scored twice in the bottom of the frame, and added two more in the second inning. However, Davis still trailed 7-4 when Abbie Dewit stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the fourth.

Dewit smashed a two-run homer before her team loaded the bases for Caylee Ade, who came through with a two-run, walk-off single.

Local hurler Rebeca Engelhard threw four strong innings in the win.

Following a pair of losses, Davis then found itself down 7-0 after a half inning against Placerville. The locals came back with four runs in the their half, then added three in the second and two in the bottom of the third and final frame to earn another come-from-behind victory at 9-8.

In that game, which put Davis in the semifinals, Engelhard went the distance again, this time adding a 2-for-2 plate performance with two RBIs. Also hitting well for the locals were Mikayla Stilwell (2-for-3), Jessica Christopulos (2-for-2) and Lauren Aquino, who doubled in Caitlyn Miller for the winning run.

UCD women’s soccer

“I chose UC Davis because of its prestige and spirited campus feel. I particularly loved the athletics and vision for the soccer program,” said Kelly Brady, one of 11 players who make up new Aggie coach Twila Kaufman’s inaugural recruiting class.

Brady, a 45-goal scorer in her three years of varsity at South Pasadena High, will be joined by Sydney Burger, Kayla Collins, Dana Fujikuni, Kate Hamilton, Lindsay Johansen, Amanda McKeegan, Karly Passmore, Rachel Smith, Summer Stamates and Mali Tehaney. They will begin their careers when the UCD squad reports for preseason practices in late August.

Burger comes from Vanden, where she was a team captain and a two-time AP Scholar Award winner.

Able to positively influence the game from any of the three lines, Collins spent all four years on the Del Oro varsity squad, including a trip to the 2012 Sac-Joaquin Section finals. She was the Golden Eagles’ team MVP this season, while maintaining at 4.05 GPA.

Fujikuni, a four-year letterwinner at Moorpark High, also was her squad’s MVP this year and earned All-Marmonte League first-team recognition as its co-MVP as well as all-county accolades.

Hamilton was a four-year goalkeeper for Garces Memorial High, earning all-area selection each season and posting 17 shutouts in 2014. She also sports a 4.1 GPA.

Johansen — a native of North Vancouver, British Columbia — will continue her undergraduate career at UCD  after spending the last two years at Arkansas State, where she was the only student-athlete to earn a start in every game played by her team throughout the past two seasons.

She was a member of Arkansas State’s Dean’s and the Sun Belt Conference’s Chancellor’s lists.

McKeegen helped Mira Costa High advance to the CIF playoffs in each of her four varsity seasons, scoring 38 goals and picking up 40 assists as an outside midfielder.

Passmore scored a team-high 21 goals in helping Bradshaw Christian to its seventh straight Sierra Delta League title.

Smith capped her successful career at Dos Puebles High by earning All-CIF Southern Section first team accolades and was the All-Channel League MVP. In all, Smith had 40 goals and 25 assists in her four varsity seasons.

Stamates, a versatile all-league second-teamer aided San Ramon Valley High in reaching the North Coast Section finals this spring. Summer’s sister Stephanie Stamates is a standout on the UCD gymnastics team.

A four-year varsity starter at Miramonte High, Tehaney capped her senior season in spectacular fashion by helping the Matadors finish with a 15-3-1 overall record and a Diablo Foothill Athletic League championship. Miramonte’s top goalkeeper also earned All-East Bay second team and DFAL Defensive MVP recognition following the school’s title run.

River Cats

The Sacramento River Cats scored a run in the top of the first inning, when Shane Peterson knocked in Andy Parrino, but host Round Rock had two big answers on its way to a 7-1 victory at Dell Diamond on Thursday.

The Cats (42-32), were done in by a three-run homer by the Express (36-38) in the third, then a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth.

Both shots came off of Sacramento starter Dan Straily (4-2).

In the second game of his rehab assignment, A’s right fielder Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk for the River Cats.

The two teams are back in action Friday at 5:05 p.m.
