Davis High graduate Elsie Fullerton was one of four UC Davis women — along with teammates Hannah Curran, Erin Schlueter and Jillian Wilding — to capture All-Academic honors from the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches on Thursday.

This is the third straight award for Curran, the second for Fullerton and Schlueter, and the first for Wilding.

To be eligible for ACWPC All-Academic recognition, a student-athlete must have competed in at least 50 percent of the team’s contests and hold a cumulative GPA of 3.20 or higher. The honor roll features three categories: Outstanding (3.71-4.0), Superior (3.41-3.70) and Excellent (3.20-3.40).

Sophomore Fullerton and juniors Curran and Schlueter made the Superior category, while sophomore Wilding earned the Excellent classification.

All four Aggies earned Big West Academic All-Conference recognition earlier this month.

UCD finished the 2013 season ranked 18th in the nation.

Bike Hall of Fame 

The Clif Family Winery of St. Helena has hopped into the fundraising seat for the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.

On Sunday, Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the winery’s Velo Vino tasting room will be the site of a benefit during which wine fans sample wines, enjoy Clif Family treats or relax with an espresso — before or after heading out on one of eight self-guided bike rides through the heart of the Napa Valley.

“The mission (of the Hall of Fame) is to educate people about cycling’s past … and encourage them to participate in cycling activities,” Hall Trustee Brodie Hamilton explains. “If cycling’s not your style, let someone else saddle up while you enjoy Velo Vino and walking the charming downtown St. Helena.”

Tasting is $10 for three wines or a glass for $6. Hamilton says 15 percent of the proceeds — not only from the tastings but from any winery purchases that day — will go to the Hall of Fame.

There is no registration fee, but RSVP is requested via Eventbrite.

For more information, go to www.event.info@usbhof.org. Bike rentals are available: see www.cliffamily.com/velo_vino_cycling.cfm.

Labor Day race

The Golden Valley Harriers’ Labor Day Races, an event that last year raised more than $10,000 for local running programs, is back this year.

On Sept. 2, 5K and 10K races will leave from Davis Commons at First and D streets at 8 a.m., with a 1K kids’ race to follow at 9:30 a.m. The 5K and 10k races will feature official race chip timing and awards go to the top three finishers and top three in each age group. Kids’ race participants will receive a finisher’s medal.

The Labor Day Races will not only raise funds for local running programs — last year, money went to high school cross country teams from Davis, Dixon and Woodland, as well as Team Davis, a program for athletes with special needs — but the event also is an international cultural exchange with Davis’ sister city of Inuyama, Japan.

For more information or to register, visit www.goldenvalleyharriers.org. Whole Foods Market is sponsoring post-race breakfast fare and participants get a race T-shirt.

A special discount is available to members, friends and family of the Davis Chamber of Commerce through July 31. Enter discount code “Davis Chamber.”

Jahn to appear on Sunday

Adam Jahn of the San Jose Earthquakes will sign autographs Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Davis Swim & Fitness, 303 Ensenada Drive.

The 22-year-old, who grew up in El Macero, was picked 15th in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft and made his MLS debut on March 23 in a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Jahn, a forward who has played in 16 of the Earthquakes’ 21 matches, is currently tied for second in goals scored among MLS rookies, with four.

A two-time Gatorade California High School Player of the Year at Jesuit, Jahn starred for four years at Stanford.

Villanueva golf tournament

The 15th annual Teo Villanueva Memorial Golf Tournament is set for Saturday at Wildhorse Golf Club in Davis.

The Villanueva family sees the gathering as a “celebration of life,” a chance to catch up with old friends and a way to raise funds for the Teo Villanueva Memorial Scholarship — given each school year to a deserving Latino student at Davis High School.

The tournament — which in June supplied graduated DHS senior Jose Arzaluz with the grant — costs $65 per player. That includes a cart, range balls, greens fees, deli lunch and prizes afterward. Check-in is at 7 a.m. with tee times starting 30 minutes later.

Nongolfers can purchase just the meal and “come hang out with old friends,” according to organizers.

For additional information, or to enter the event, call Ralph Villanueva at 916-285-6165. For those who won’t be playing but want to contribute to the scholarship fund, make checks out Teo Villanueva Memorial Scholarship and mail to 120 Rock House Circle-North, Sacramento, CA 95835.
