UC Davis senior Carmen Eggert scored three goals in each game on Saturday as the Aggie women’s water polo team won both of its matchups while hosting the Davis Challenge at Schaal Aquatics Center.

No. 14 UCD improved to 3-5 and broke a five-game skid by beating Cal Lutheran, 16-3, then No. 20 Bakersfield, 12-7.

Sophomore goalie Jillian Wilding made her first starts as an Aggie, posting seven saves against the Regals then matching her career high of 12 in Game 2. Her seven fourth-period saves — including a block of a 6-on-5 attempt — were key as UCD held off the Roadrunners.

In addition to Eggert, senior Alex Rawlinson and sophomore Elsie Fullerton, a Davis High graduate, each posted their first career hat tricks in the opener against CLU. Senior Jessica Dunn and junior Hannah Curran added two tallies apiece in that contest, while Eggert’s three goals paced seven Aggie scorers in the afternoon win over Bakersfield.

Sophomore Keelia Houston, another former Blue Devil, netted two goals in the first quarter, while senior Kathryn Bailey matched that total in the second and Erin Schlueter had two scores of her own.

The Davis Challenge continues on Sunday with UCD facing Pacific at 1:15 p.m. and wrapping up the event with a 4 p.m. matchup against Sonoma State.

UCD women’s golf

Senior Demi Runas’ 2-under 69 on Saturday put her in a tie for second place after the first round of Stanford’s Peg Barnard Invitational, and helped the 10th-ranked Aggies into seventh place overall.

The tournament is the first of the spring season for UCD, which shot a 12-over 296 and trails first-place Cal by 11 shots.

Freshman Betty Chen also enjoyed a solid first round for the Aggies, firing a 2-over 73 to end the day in a tie for 14th. Sophomores Beverly Vatananugulkit and Blair Lewis each had 77s and were tied for 39th, while senior Amy Simanton finished with a 79 and is tied for 48th.

The two-day event is scheduled to end Sunday.

UCD women’s tennis

Following an exciting Causeway Classic win over Sacramento State on Friday, the Aggies dropped a 4-3 decision on Saturday at San Francisco.

In losing to the Dons, UCD (3-6) got singles wins from Lauren Curry and Nicole Koehly, and captured the doubles point behind victories from Koehly/Layla Sanders and Melissa Kobayakawa/Megan Heneghan.

On Friday, the Aggies trailed the Hornets 2-0 before battling back to post a 4-3 win and spoil Sac State’s home opener.

The victory is UCD’s first over its Causeway rival since March 31, 2000.

In the most recent matchup, Curry and Heneghan got a doubles win before the Hornets eventually grabbed the doubles point. Sacramento State then made it 2-0 by winning the first singles.

Sanders got the Aggies’ first point with a 6-1, 6-0 triumph, but the Hornets answered to make it 3-1 and force UCD to win the final three matches. The Aggies did just that as Koehly and Heneghan prevailed to leave it up to Kobayakawa.

With the entire UCD squad cheering her on, the Aggie junior outlasted Olivia Boua, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 to clinch the match for the locals.

UCD men’s tennis

Aggies Kyle Miller and Brett Bacharach earned singles victories at the Harbor Bay Club in Friday’s nonconference match against San Francisco, earning the only points for UCD in a 7-2 loss to the host Dons.

The Aggies (4-4) opened their day by capturing one doubles match — with Toki Sherbakov and Adam Levie getting a win at No. 1 — but failed to earn the point as San Francisco (3-2) prevailed in the other two matchups.

In singles, Miller recorded his sixth victory in his last seven matches, defeating William Schumacher (6-4, 6-2), and Bacharach outlasted Rich Van Hout in a three-set nail-biter. When he finally won 6-3, 6-7, 10-8, it was Bacharach’s fifth victory of the season.

UCD women’s gymnastics

Senior Michelle Ho picked up meet titles on uneven parallel bars and floor exercise, while senior Katie Yamamura captured individual vault and all-around wins to lead the Aggies to a winning 194.300 team score in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation dual meet at Seattle Pacific’s Royal Brougham Pavilion Friday night.

The hosts scored 192.125 as UCD improved to 8-7.

Ho hit a 9.825 on bars in the meet’s opening rotation, edging Yamamura’s runner-up score of 9.800. She then went 9.900 on floor, marking the second time she has eclipsed the 9.9 barrier.

Yamamura’s winning 9.800 on vault highlighted her all-around total of 38.925, which pushed her above Falcon sophomore Sydney Clark, who placed second. Yamamura also took second on balance beam at 9.725, just ahead of the Aggie tandem of Tiana Montell and Anna Shumaker, who each scored 9.700 for a share of third place.

Also for UCD, junior Madeline Kennedy delivered a career-best 9.800 on floor exercise to finish second in that event.
