Sports briefs: Three Aggie softballers named All-Big West

From page B3 | May 15, 2014 |

UC Davis sophomore shortstop Christa Castello made the second team, junior first baseman Amy Nunez received honorable mention and right-hander Dana Cruse earned all-freshman recognition when the Big West released its 2014 all-conference softball teams on Tuesday.

Nunez and Cruse were recognized by the Big West for the first time, while Castello was award second-team honors for the second straight season.

The Aggie lead-off batter finished the season as the 33rd toughest player in the country to strike out — Castello fanned once every 22.9 at-bats — and led the team with a .317 average, .365 on-base percentage, 58 hits and four triples. Castello’s quartet of three-baggers was 37th in the country and her hits were the sixth-most in the Big West.

From Concord, Castello hit .417 with runners in scoring position and added 13 doubles and 21 RBIs. With the glove, the shortstop was third in the league in putouts and seventh in fielding percentage.

Hailing from Huntington Beach, Nunez slugged .550 against the Big West foes and knocked in 23 runs in 2014.

One of two true pitchers named to the All-Freshman Team, Cruse ended her inaugural season at UCD ranked fifth in the Big West in opposing batting average (.266), eighth in strikeouts (68) and ERA (3.54) and 10th in innings pitched (130.1).

The San Diego native finished with 11 victories, five complete games and three shutouts.

UCD women’s tennis

Aggie coach Bill Maze is one of five members in the 2014 class of the United State Tennis Association’s Northern California Hall of Fame.

He, along with Susan Mehmedbasich Wright, Rich Anderson, John Hubbell and Bob Walsh, will be inducted in a ceremony set for July 31 at the Bank of the West Classic, hosted by Stanford, Maze’s alma mater.

“I’m flattered and extremely honored,” Maze said.

Maze has earned Big West Coach of the Year four times, three of them in his 19 seasons at the UCD helm, and his teams have made eight NCAA Division II Championship appearances.

Since the Aggies moved up to D-I and joined the Big West in 2007, Maze’s squads have won 83 matches overall and 27 league outings, and UCD athletes have won 27 all-conference awards. This spring, the Aggies (12-10 overall) went 4-3 to take fourth in the Big West.

Maze’s success at UCD  is the latest chapter in a storied tennis career that also includes All-American accolades received as a Stanford student-athlete, two ATP doubles titles and world rankings in both singles and doubles.

Davis Double Century

With start and finish at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, 303 Third St., the 45th annual Davis Double Century is set for Saturday.

Not a race, the popular event is a well-supported ride that is one of the oldest and by far the biggest double century in California.

Riders will take off between 4:45 and 5:15 a.m. and return to Central Park beginning around 3 p.m. Participants have until 1 a.m. Sunday morning to finish the grueling 200 miles.

To facilitate rider safety, some streets will be closed to vehicular traffic. C Street will be closed between Third and Fourth streets from 1:30 p.m. Saturday until 1 a.m. Sunday, while Third Street between B and C streets will be closed from 4 p.m. Saturday through 1 p.m. Sunday.
