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 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.
