UC Davis junior Kaylin Squyres posted 11 kills and a .333 hitting average while senior libero Megan Lancaster picked up a match-high 18 digs, but St. Mary’s served up a total of eight aces in dispatching its guests in a 25-20, 15-25, 25-13, 25-14 women’s volleyball victory at McKeon Pavilion on Wednesday.

Squyres committed just one hitting error in 30 swings, adding 11 digs on the defensive end. Senior Katie Quinn added eight kills and a .467 success rate for the Aggies (0-4), who won the second game in impressive fashion.

For the Gaels (2-2), seven of the eight service aces came in the decisive third and fourth sets.

Next, the Aggies return home to host San Jose State and Portland in a round-robin series at The Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday.

Coach Alex Park had one word to describe his Blue Devils’ season-opening 4-3 win at Napa on Wednesday: “Heart!”

Park added that his team didn’t give up despite falling behind, 1-0, in the first two minutes and 3-0 before halftime.

DHS senior D.J. Villagas, a U.S. national team player, finally got his team on the board moments before intermission, scoring off a pass from Pablo Guarnizo.

Junior Matteo Sorrentino and senior Joe Rainer added unassisted Devil goals to tie the game after the break, setting up an exciting final stretch.

Then, with just five minutes remaining in the contest, senior Jesse Hopp found the net, sending Davis to its exciting victory.

The Blue Devils have two challenging home matches coming up this weekend, with Granite Bay at Yudin Field on Friday (4 p.m.) and Woodland in town Saturday night at 7 p.m.

The Blue Devils got off to a strong start to their season on Wednesday as all five scorers shot in the 80s at the Helen Lengfeld Memorial Tournament in Rocklin.

The score was good enough to put the locals in second place, just one shot behind host Rocklin, 429-430.

“(This) is always our first tournament of the season. Every year we get better and this was our best finish (yet),” said DHS coach Rhonda Mohr. “We are a little ahead of where we usually are in terms of being ready for our season. This is very encouraging.”

The top Devil finisher was senior Emily Masiel, who carded an 81. Behind her were freshman Marie Dean (86), senior River Xiang (87) and sophomore Emma Cowan (87), with Casey Harris (89) completing the Davis scorers.

Mohr was particularly pleased with the play of her youngsters:

“Marie felt she had a couple of holes that she could have improved but that’s a great start to a high school career,” Mohr explained. “Emma had two birdies that contributed to her lowest score ever.”

The Blue Devils finished well ahead of third-place Vista Del Lago (450) and also topped schools like Franklin, Whitney and Roseville.
