Sports briefs: Large group of Aggies honored for academics

From page B4 | July 03, 2013 |

An impressive 27 UC Davis student-athletes — coming from eight different winter and spring teams — earned Big West Academic All-Conference honors as the league announced its selections this week.

To be eligible for conference academic accolades, athletes must hold a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher, have completed one full year at the member institution prior to the year for which the award is given, and have competed in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests for that year.

Thanks in part to its overall roster size, the Big West-champion Aggie women’s track and field squad had the largest group of honorees with nine. Seniors Sarah Sumpter and Lauren Wallace picked up their third spring All-Academic nods, while sophomore Katie Barber and juniors Nicole Aha, Alycia Cridebring, Kellie Grigg, Shannon Harcus, Shanie Landen and Kira Rienecker also made the honor roll from track and field. UCD sophomore Trevor Ehlenbach was the lone male track athlete to earn All-Academic distinction.

Women’s water polo and baseball each had four Aggie honorees, as pool juniors Hannah Curran and Erin Schlueter, plus sophomores Elsie Fullerton — a Davis High graduate — and Jillian Wilding were selected. From the diamond, it was seniors Patrick Hennessey and Austin Logan, junior Harry Stanwyck and sophomore John Williams.

The UCD tennis teams had senior men Toki Sherbakov and Hugo Verdi Fortin honored and senior Lauren Curry, along with juniors Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa representing the women. Sherbakov — who recently received a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship — and Curry each captured their third Big West academic award.

Basketball players Idit Oryon (junior) and Emily Vann (sophomore) and senior golfers Demi Runas and Amy Simanton rounded out the Aggie academic honorees.

AYSO soccer

The deadline to register and guarantee placement on a fall AYSO team has been extended through Wednesday, July 10, according to organization officials.

Families can register now at www.eayso.org or at a walk-in event set for July 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the AYSO building in Community Park behind the Stephens Branch Library.

All walk-in and mail-in registration fees are now $165 ($75 for under-5), and players who register at the walk-in event will be entered into a raffle for a free registration. A family that also applies to coach will receive an additional raffle ticket and the organization will pick three winners that night.

Families are asked to bring two copies of the printed registration form to the event, along with the fee (cash or check only) and a copy of the child’s birth certificate or passport if this is their first time playing with AYSO. Remember to electronically sign the online pre-registration and click the submit button before printing.

Mail-in registrants should send all of that paperwork to Davis AYSO, Attn: Fall Registration, P.O. Box 1602, Davis, CA 95617.

Correction

A photo caption in Tuesday’s edition misidentified the Davis American 10-11 player. The batter connecting with the ball is Nate Barclift.
