Sports briefs: North Davis golf tournament named for John Henderson

By From page B2 | March 21, 2013

The North Davis Elementary School PTA is looking for players and sponsors for its fourth annual fundraising golf tournament, which is now named the John Henderson Memorial Tournament.

John was a 7-year-old second-grader at North Davis who died in December 2011 after falling off a chair lift at Sugar Bowl.

The tournament is set for Sunday, April 21, at the Yocha Dehe Golf Course at the Cache Creek Casino Resort. Proceeds will benefit the elementary school and its arts program.

The cost of $150 per player covers golf — play begins at 9 a.m. — a buffet lunch at 3 p.m. and a goodie bag.

Organizers will hand out prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, first- and second-place team, scratch score, mulligan score, Need Lessons (highest score) as well as a 2013 Honda Accord — courtesy of University Honda — for a hole-in-one on No. 7. An accompanying raffle includes prizes such as a 2013-14 season ski pass courtesy of Sugar Bowl.

Sponsorships are available from the $2,500 level all the way down.

UCD track and field

Aggie sprinter Ashley Marshall, who was a part of two school-record efforts on Saturday, and hammer thrower Sarah Hussey, who had a personal record at the Hornet Invitational, were named the Big West Female Track and Field Athletes of the Week, respectively.

It marked the third straight week that the UCD women have swept the awards.

Marshall, a sophomore from Moreno Valley, ran 24.02 seconds in the 200-meter dash, breaking the program benchmark set by teammate Melanise Chapman just one race earlier.

Marshall and Chapman then joined forces as part of the Aggies’ second-place 4×100 relay that was timed in a school-record 45.26 seconds. Both times lead the conference.

Hussey was exceptional in the hammer throw, finishing fourth on Saturday with a toss of 172 feet, 6 inches. It moved her up two spots to No. 5 on the UCD career list.

Bike race

The UCD cycling team, a coed sports club, is hosting its annual collegiate bike race on Picnic Day, which is set for Saturday, April 20.

The race, which lasts from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., is on a 6.2-mile rolling circuit course west of Woodland that includes County Roads 20, 92C, 19 and 94B.
