STANFORD — Even two goals and two assists from junior standout Elizabeth Landry weren’t enough to help the UC Davis women’s lacrosse time erase an early deficit on Tuesday in an 18-6 loss at No. 13 Stanford on Tuesday.

Landry, senior Carly Voris and sophomore Mary Doyle each scored two goals for the Aggies (6-8, 1-6 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), while junior Sara Quero added two draw controls and a team-high three ground balls.

The Cardinal started fast and opened up a 6-1 advantage just over five minutes into the contest. And with Stanford edging UCD, 17-9, in draw controls, the Aggies just didn’t have enough chances to come back.

Next up for UCD is an MPSF home match against Fresno State at 4 p.m. on Friday. The game has been designated the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation Day, in honor of the organization that improves the lives of children and family battling pediatric tumors.

UCD track

Aggie distance runner Nathan Strum, hurdler Kellie Grigg and thrower Praise Adesida were each honored with a Big West Track and Field Athlete of the Week award after strong performances in meets at Arizona State and Sacramento State.

Strum, a senior from San Jose, was named the men’s track winner after taking first place in the mile at the Sun Angel Classic in Tempe, Ariz. The race is seldom run at meets but Strum made the most of his opportunity, crossing in 4:01.39.

Grigg, a senior from Alameda, captured women’s track honors after an impressive sixth-place finish in the premiere section of the 400 hurdles at the same event. She ran a season-best 59.70, the second best time in the Big West this season and a top-50 time in the U.S.

A sophomore from Martinez, Adesida earned the women’s field award with her shot put throw of 49-6.25 in the Mondo Mid-Major Challenge at Sac State. The PR was good for an event win, and moved her into second place on the all-time UCD list.

Pellow does well, hosts play day

Davis tennis pro Ann Pellow took fifth place at the recent USTA National Senior Women’s Clay Court Championship in Houston, rallying for nearly three hours to defeat top-ranked Canadian player Erin Boynton, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, in her final match.

Pellow reached that outing by beating Argentinian Alicra Sisca, 6-3, 6-3.

To celebrate the great finish, Pellow is inviting young athletes of all ages to participate in a free tennis play day on Saturday, May 10, at 4447 Cowell Blvd.

Players will be divided by age group with Red Tennis (ages 8 and under) scheduled for 9 to 10 a.m., Orange Tennis (ages 12 and under) scheduled for 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. and Green Tennis (teenagers) from 11:30 to 12:30 a.m.

For more information and to register, call Pellow — who also uses other fun events to teach tennis to kids and adults — at 530-665-0816 or visit www.annpellow.usptapro.com.

City golf championship

Wes Sandroni shot a combined 10-under 124 on Saturday and Sunday to capture the championship flight at the 2014 Davis City Championship golf tournament.

Sandroni finished ahead of Nick Sorensen (127) and Michael Tolleday (128) at the top, while some names that are familiar to local sports fans also played well.

That list includes current Blue Devil senior golfer Cyrrus Espino (tied for 29th) and former DHS linksters Chase Dossa (11th), Taylor Lowe (tied for 29th) and Tyler Bryan (tied for 31st). Also in the mix were Woodland High graduate Will Scarlett (22nd), who now plays at UC Davis, and former Blue Devil multi-sport standout Jake MacLeod-Roemer (17th).

Herb Jensen and Tim Snow finished in a tie atop the senior championship when each shot even par, then Jensen took the title in a playoff.

Former Devil brothers excel

Derek and Corey Nelson, brothes who were both standout athletes at DHS, have gone on to success in college sports.

Derek Nelson, now a senior track star at North Central College, has posted a long list of accomplishments. One of the most recent was a contribution to the Cardinals’ eighth-place showing — good for Division III All-America status — in the distance medley event at the NCAA Indoor Championships last month.

The NCC quartet finished in 10:00.62 and helped the Cards finish seventh overall at the meet.

Meanwhile, Corey Nelson, a first-team All-Delta Valley Conference linebacker for the Blue Devils in 2011, completed his football career at Sac City back in November. The younger Nelson played in nearly every game of his career, learning the Panthers system so well that coach Donnie Walker said Corey “knows more about defense than myself or the defensive coordinator.”

Walker added that Nelson brought a lot of energy to the Sac City squad, which also featured former DHS standout Christian Castro.

Staff hoops at Emerson

The teachers and staff of Emerson and Da Vinci junior highs will play a basketball game against ninth-grade students as the centerpiece of a fun-filled event at Emerson on Friday night.

During the game, which starts at 7 p.m., prizes will be given away for Half-Court Shot, Pie in the Face, Pickle Shoot and Rubber Face contests and the staff team will feature some surprise guest players. In addition, new and vintage apparel and snacks will available for purchase.

Cost is $3 at the door, but pre-sale tickets for $2 are available every day this week at lunch in the Emerson Indoor Commons. All proceeds from the event go to support the Emerson/Da Vinci sports programs.

DHS football

Athletes interested in playing football for the Blue Devils next fall, along with their parents, should attend a mandatory preseason meeting on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the DHS library.

At the meeting, players will have a chance to meet the coaches and get information on the upcoming season.

For more information, contact new head coach John Wiley at wiley7927@yahoo.com.

Alliance soccer

The Davis Alliance U14 girls soccer team is looking for select-level players interested in joining the team for the spring season and beyond.

The Copper-level squad invites players to come to training sessions on Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Walnut Fields, on Lillard Drive near Cowell Blvd.

For more information, contact coach Kimber Banta at kpbanta@gmail.com and Phillip Bachand at phil.bachand@gmail.com.
