When the MLS regular season ended on Sunday, it marked the end of the 2013 campaign for locals stars Jalil Anibaba and Adam Jahn.

Anibaba’s Chicago Fire and Jahn’s San Jose Earthquakes both finished sixth in their respective conferences, each missing the playoffs on tiebreakers.

Anibaba, a third-year defender and former Davis High star, played every minute of the season for the Fire, one of just seven players in the league to do so. He had one goal and a career-high three assists on the season.

Jahn, who grew up in El Macero and played at Jesuit, finished his rookie season with four goals. He played in 22 games and even made 11 starts during the early portion of the year. But his playing time decreased after San Jose got some players back from injury.

UCD women’s volleyball

Junior Mary Schroeder had the match of her life on Saturday as the Aggies upset then-No. 8 Hawaii in five sets. She was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

The La Cañada native is the first UCD volleyball player to get the award since Allison Whitson last November.

Schroeder compiled personal bests of 17 kills and 43 swings to go with a .302 hitting average and two blocks in Saturday’s marathon match. She was particularly effective in the Aggies’ second-set victory, in which she contributed five kills and a solo stuff to send her team to the break with a 2-0 match lead.

UCD eventually pulled off a 25-21, 25-22, 19-25, 15-25, 15-9, win in front of 1,309 fans on “Dig Pink” night at The Pavilion. It was largest crowd to watch a volleyball match since the program began keeping records in 1994.

Junior libero Megan Lancaster added a personal-best 21 digs to help the Aggies (12-9, 4-4) post their biggest upset in team history.

UCD women’s soccer

Cal State Fullerton converted a penalty kick with 56 seconds remaining in double overtime to defeat the Aggies, 1-0, on Sunday at Titan Stadium.

It’s just the second OT loss for UCD (5-8-3, 2-3-1 Big West) in its last 12 extra-session matches dating back to the start of 2010.

The Aggies’ frustration was compounded by the fact that they scored a game-winner in the first overtime, only to have it negated by a controversial offsides call.

UCD is home for its final two matches, beginning with a Halloween contest against Cal Poly at 2 p.m.

UCD men’s water polo

Junior Davis High graduates Teddy Nicholson and Trevor Allen each had four goals on the day, but the 11th-ranked Aggies could not hold on to a pair of halftime leads at the Rodeo tournament on Saturday in Santa Clara.

UCD (9-12) fell to No. 19 Harvard, 14-11, then lost a 9-8 decision to No. 20 Brown to finish 2-2 at the event.

Nicholson scored his first hat trick of the year against Harvard, then had one against Brown, while Allen scored twice in each game.

The Aggies returns to action this weekend in a key conference road trip to Loyola Marymount (Friday) and UC San Diego (Saturday).

UCD women’s golf

Freshman Paige Lee posted a final-round 74 on Sunday while junior Beverly Vatananugulkit tied for the 23rd as the No. 38 Aggies brought their fall season to a close with a 12th-place finish at the Stanford Intercollegiate.

UCD carded a 17-over 301 team score on Sunday and shot 34-over 886 overall.

Vatananugulkit was the Aggies’ top finisher overall, tying for 23rd at 3-over. Sophomore Betty Chen finished 5-over and tied for 32nd, Lee was 11-over and tied for 50th, senior Jessica Chulya tied for 78th at 19-over and sophomore Andrea Wong finished 80th at 20 over.

UCD field hockey

The Aggies played a strong second half, but couldn’t pull off a comeback in a 5-1 loss to Iowa at Grant Field on Sunday.

Competing in their second game within a 24-hour period, UCD (4-12) shook off a slow start and forced most of the second-half action to take place in the Hawkeyes’ half of the field.

Jamie Garcia scored the Aggies’ lone goal off of one of her team’s four corners midway through the second half. The sophomore midfielder is now tied with redshirt freshman forward Danielle Koehne — who assisted on the play — with a team-high five goals.

UCD goalkeeper Danielle Herrington recorded all five of her saves in a first half that saw Iowa record 16 of its 22 shots.
