UC Davis put a run on the board first as junior Nick Lynch launched his inaugural home run of the season, but the Aggies could not hold back host Saint Mary’s for long. The Gaels sent 11 batters to the plate as part of a five-run fourth inning en route to a 5-1 victory on Thursday afternoon on the opening day of the Gael Invitational in Moraga.

Lynch reached base three times on the day for UCD (1-4 overall), following up his home run by reaching on an error in the sixth and singling in the eighth to finish 2-for-4 for the day. Junior Kevin Barker, freshman Mason Novak and junior Izaak Silva also added base hits for the Aggies, who left nine on base for the game — five of those in scoring position.

Senior Harry Stanwyck (0-2) took the loss for UCD, allowing all five runs on three hits, walking six and striking out five, in 3 1/3 innings of work before giving way to Robert Parucha, who held the Gaels (2-3) to two hits while striking out three in 4 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

Saint Mary’s Ryan Brockett evened his record at 1-1 overall on the season, allowing just the one run on five hits, walking three and striking out four in seven innings of work.

UCD tennis

For their recent strong play, Aggie women’s player Megan Heneghan and men’s standout James Wade each earned Big West Conference Player of the Week honors.

Heneghan, a senior from Tustin, won a pair of singles matches and figured in two doubles points,  as UCD split two recent league matches, to capture the third weekly award of her career. It marked the first time an Aggie woman has picked up Big West accolades since March 6, 2013.

It was the first career award for Wade, a freshman who went 3-0 last weekend in singles, dropping just eight games total in those matches.

Wade, from San Marino, has 16 victories this season, which are the most for a UCD man since the 2007-08 campaign.

Intensity youth soccer

The Davis Intensity, a U12 girls soccer team, advanced to the semifinals of last weekend’s President’s Cup, eventually finishing fourth.

Davis reached the semis by beating top-seeded Mt. Diablo in a tough quarterfinal match, then dropped the third-place contest, 1-0, to the San Carlos White Storm.

Ana Fenton, Allison Ayer, and Kylie Seward combined to score all seven of the local goals at the tournament, while stellar goalkeeping from Annabelle Lossin, Georgia Eastham, Molly Anderson and Rosie Mariano aided the Intensity cause.

In addition, Davis’ Emma Nance, Jenna Dyer, Sara Ludden and Kaitlyn Saylor made key plays in the midfield and on defense.

Basketball skills clinic

A free basketball skills clinic for girls and boys in kindergarten through third grade will be offered Sunday at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.
Presented by the NorCal Wildcats Basketball Club, the clinic is designed to introduce young athletes to the proper skills and technique of basketball while helping to develop a passion for the game, organizers said.

Kids in second and third grades go from 2 to 3:15 p.m. with kindergartners and first-graders at 3:30 p.m.

Interested parties can register online at www.davishoops.com.

The club also is having a pasta feed fundraiser Sunday, March 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online or at the door.

Meanwhile, the AAU-affiliated organization is conducting tryouts for high school-aged players. Boys 15U, 16U and 17U teams will try out March 2, 9, 15 and 16, and girls will try out on March 8, 9 and 12.

Again, more information about times and locations is available at the Wildcats’ website.
