UC Davis senior defenders Brian Ford and Ramon Martin del Campo, along with senior forward Matt Sheldon, were named to the first team, while senior forward Matt Wiesenfarth made the second team, as College Sports Madness announced its preseason All-Big West Conference men’s soccer selections this week.

The Aggies’ three first-team selections match Cal State Northridge for the most in the league, while their four overall honorees stand behind only the Matadors and UC Santa Barbara, which finished with five selections apiece.

Among a group of six starters returning for UCD, which opened preseason practice on Wednesday, Sheldon and Wiesenfarth return after sharing the team lead and ranking among the league leaders with six goals and 13 points overall as juniors in 2013. Both earned all-conference accolades last season with Wiesenfarth earning a spot on the All-Big West second team and Sheldon named to the honorable mention squad.

On the back line, all-league selections Martin del Campo (honorable mention) and Ford (second team) stand tall as returning starters for an Aggie defense that ranked third in the Big West in both goals allowed (21) and goals against average (0.96) last year.

UCD hosts Chico State in an exhibition game on Sunday, Aug. 24, at noon before officially opening the 2014 regular season with a road trip to Columbus, Ohio. There, the Aggies will take on host Ohio State (Aug. 29) and Canisius College (Aug. 31) as part of the ninth annual Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic.

UCD women’s soccer

Aggie fans can watch UCD prepare for next week’s season opener at Sacramento State, when Sonoma State comes to Aggie Soccer Field on Saturday for a 2 p.m. organized scrimmage.

Admission is free for the scrimmage, which will feature the Aggies and Seawolves competing in three 30-minute periods.

UCD is tuning up before starting its regular-season slate on Friday, Aug. 22, at Sacramento State (5 p.m.).

The Aggies’ official home opener is Friday, Aug. 29, when San Jose State is in  town for a 5 p.m. contest.

Local paintball

Micah McGlocklin, owner of Davis Paintball, helped lead an area paintball team to victory. The team placed first in the pump gun event at the Paintball Sport Promotion tournament on Aug. 10 in Riverside.

The Dirtbags out-gunned 15 other teams by winning every game they played. Dirtbags is sponsored by Davis Paintball and competes regularly at pump gun tournaments at Davis Paintball field.

This tournament is one of five that takes place throughout the United States each year. Besides the pump gun event, there are automatic paintball gun events.

Davis Paintball helps promote pump gun play at the field, 24998 County Road 102, by hosting a pump gun event every six weeks. For more information on Davis Paintball, visit www.davispaintball.com.

Hot Shots basketball

Tryouts for the Davis Hot Shots eighth grade through varsity-level teams — as well as sign-ups for next month’s fundamentals clinics for grades four through varsity — are set for Monday and Tuesday at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

Registration for tryouts will take place upon arrival, with eighth-grade workouts going from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and varsity running from 10:30 a.m. to noon, but forms can be found at www.davishotshots.com. Information such as cost also can be found on that site.

Sign-ups for the fundamental clinics — set to run once a week for four weeks in September — will be taken Monday and Tuesday from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

Meet the new DHS AD

The Davis community is invited to meet new Blue Devil athletic director Jeff Lorenson at an event Tuesday on the DHS Quad.

Lorenson will be available to meet Devil fans between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. with refreshments provided by The Hotdogger.

Correction

On Thursday’s B1 an incorrect picture was put with the article “The Wright stuff.” The photo — identified as running back Gabe Manzanares — was actually of UCD freshman quarterback C.J. Spencer.
