Sophomore outside hitter Kaylin Squyres posted 16 kills and a .382 hitting average while junior middle blocker Katie Quinn posted a career-high eight blocks, boosting the UC Davis women’s volleyball team to a four-set upset win over Cal at The Pavilion on Thursday.

The Aggies (7-5) won 12-25, 25-20, 26-24, 25-20 to take their first victory over the Golden Bears since 1976. Cal, among the teams receiving votes in Monday’s national Top 25 poll, slipped to 7-2 overall.

Squyres committed just three attacking errors in 34 swings for the match, while junior middle Victoria Lee added nine kills and a .471 attack percentage, junior libero Megan Lancaster notched a match-high 18 digs and senior setter Jenny Woolway managed 42 assists and 13 digs to go with her 4-for-11 hitting.

Overall, the serving game played a big part for both teams. Cal suffered from eight service errors despite five aces. UCD had seven aces, with Quinn, Devon Damelio and Kendall Frisoli recording two each. The Aggie serving also forced the Golden Bears out of their system for much of the decisive fourth set, evident in Cal’s drop from .350 to .149 in hitting.

UCD returns to action on Sunday afternoon when it hosts CSU Bakersfield.

DHS girls tennis

In the unfamiliar position of trying to avoid a three-match losing streak — and losing to the same opponent for the third time in one season — the Davis High girls tennis team rose to the occasion on Thursday.

Playing at Oak Ridge, a team the Blue Devils were facing for the third time in as many weeks, DHS won a couple of key three-set singles contests and captured a 6-3 victory.

The win was especially gratifying for the Devils, who had dropped close matches in each of the previous two encounters with the Trojans.

“I had a feeling that we would take the win this week,” said Davis coach Sally Hosley. “We drilled hard this past week and honed in on our ground strokes and volleys. Their efforts paid off (Thursday).”

The hard work also helped with the locals’ endurance which was exemplified by No. 1 singles player Kailynn Yang and No. 3 Cat Paw U.

Yang dropped the first set 6-3, but didn’t panic and cruised to 6-0, 6-1 wins in the next two. Paw U opened with a 6-3 victory but dropped the second set, 6-1. The junior quickly recovered to take the final set by the same score.

“It was so refreshing to see Kailynn and Cat win some three set matches,” Hosley said. “I knew these girls had the endurance in them to go the extra set and prevail. (Thursday) they proved it.”

DHS’ other two singles victories came much more easily as freshman Lauren Duan (Harper) and sophomore Jenna Mould won in straight sets.

“They were both very focused during their matches and neither of them had many errors,” Hosley explained.

In doubles, the Blue Devils came out on top at No. 1 — where Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming prevailed 6-3, 6-3 — and No. 2, where Kathermine Murdoch and senior Cat Archer teamed up to win a 6-2, 6-4 decision. They also got a strong performance in a loss from the No. 3 duo of Aydan Prime/Amy Fang, who were playing for the first time this season.

“(Ewens and Fleming) have really come together nicely to make a strong doubles team,” Hosley said. “Aydan Prime and Amy Fang had a tough go at No. 3 doubles. They lost, 6-3, 7-5, but they showed wonderful effort out on the court … they both played hard and competitive.”

Davis now heads into Delta Valley Conference play, with matches at Monterey Trail (Tuesday) and home against Elk Grove (Thursday, 3:45 p.m.) next week.

Flowers Wilson to be honored

Michelle Flowers Wilson, a former standout hoopster at Davis High who graduated in 1988 then went on to play at Chico State, will be inducted into the Wildcats Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 12.

Flowers Wilson was a dominant force in the paint during her Chico State career, setting the school’s career mark for blocked shots with 148 — a record she still holds. She also remains among the top 10 in program history in career and single-season rebounds, single-season blocks and blocks per game.

Flowers Wilson, who currently resides in Folsom, went on to a career in education that included a stint as the principal at Patwin from 2008-2012. Prior to that she was a vice-principle at DHS.

Tickets — $45 or $340 for a table of eight — can be purchased by calling the Chico State Athletic Department at 530-898-6470. RSVP by Sept. 27.

Foxy’s Fall Century

Registration is open for the Davis Bike Club’s Foxy’s Fall Century, a ride set for Saturday, Oct. 19.

The club is offering a 100-mile endurance ride, a 60-mile “workout” and a 30-mile version — to Winters and back — that will be fun for the whole family.

Snacks, lunch and a post-ride meal are included and riders can sign up at www.davisbikeclub.org.
