Sports briefs: UCD hires a new field hockey coach

By
From page B2 | January 31, 2014 |

Accomplished international field hockey player Tiffany Huisman was named this week as the new UC Davis head coach.

Huisman is a former member of the U.S. women’s national field hockey team who played in more than 100 international matches, including the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Among her many accomplishments was being named field hockey’s Honda Award winner in 2002 as the Collegiate Player of the Year while playing at Old Dominion University. Huisman’s strong playing background comes in addition to collegiate, high school and club coaching experience.

She most recently served as the head coach at her alma mater, San Pasqual High School in Escondido, as well as program director for Wargles Field Hockey Club. She was an assistant coach at Boston University in 2003-07.

Huisman graduated cum laude from Old Dominion in 2003 then embarked on a six-year career with the U.S. national team that culminated with her appearance at the 2008 Olympics. 

UCD swimming

Haley Porter was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation/Turbo Female Athlete of the Week on Wednesday after helping the Aggies complete the first undefeated dual meet season in school history.

The senior from Colfax was the second consecutive UCD swimmer honored — freshman Hilvy Cheung earned the award last week — and third Aggie of the season. Liliana Alvarez was named the conference’s athlete of the week on Nov. 27.

Porter kicked off the week by winning the 50 and 100 freestyle events and taking part in a pair of first-place relays to help lead UCD over rival UC Santa Barbara, 176-124, on Friday,

Two days later, in a 178-116 victory over Loyola Marymount, Porter swam the anchor leg of the 200 medley relay (1:45.77) to kick off the meet and added a winning time of 52.02 in the 100 free.

AYSO registration

Interested players can sign up for AYSO’s spring season at one of three upcoming events at the organization’s building in Community Park behind the Yolo County Library.

AYSO is open to kids from pre-kindergarten through high school (born between Aug. 1, 1994, and July 31, 2009).

The events are set for Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m., Tuesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Players must pre-register online at www.eayso.org and bring the printed two-page registration form to one of the walk-in events. Fees for walk-in registration are $70 ($40 for the U5 squads), while mail-in registrations are $85 ($55 for U5).

Registrations received by March 1 will be guaranteed placement on a team with later registrations earning a spot on the waiting list. Players new to AYSO also must show a copy of their birth certificate or passport for proof of age.

Training to become coaches, assistant coaches and referees also is provided by AYSO. For more information, inquire at walk-in registration or send an email to volunteers@davisayso.org. New volunteers must turn in their application forms in-person with a photo ID.

For more information on registration and all of Davis AYSO’s programs, visit www.davisayso.org.

Junior Blue Devils clinic

Ready for the big game?

Kids 6 to 14 years old can warm up on Saturday as the Davis High Blue Devils present their free Super Bowl football and cheer clinic at Brown Stadium.

Devil linebacker coach Joe Camazzo orchestrated this year’s event, planning it during the school’s transition to new head coach John Wiley.

Wiley, the former defensive coordinator at Christian Brothers, will be on hand to run the multi-skills instruction. DHS players and coaches will staff the various stations.

Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. with the clinic beginning at 10 a.m.

It’s a noncontact gathering that will go on, rain or shine.

“The No. 1 thing I’ve told our players is to make it fun,” says Camazzo, a senior at UC Davis who played at Palma (Salinas) High where his father is head coach. “There will be fundamental instruction … something for all age levels.”

To volunteer or receive additional information, contact Camazzo at 831-444-2882.
