Sports briefs: UCD men to be the 10th seed at NCAA regional

By
May 9, 2011 |

The UC Davis men’s golf team has been seeded 10th for the Arizona Regional of the 2011 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship, being contested at the Omni Tucson National Golf Course in Tucson, Ariz., beginning May 19.

The Aggies earned an automatic bid to the event by winning the Big West Conference Championships last week for the second time in three years. The regional tournament will be held May 19-21 at the par 72, 7,094-yard course.

Fourteen teams and five individuals not on one of the participating teams will take part in the 54-hole regional with 18 holes of stroke play on each day of the competition. The top five finishing teams and one individual will advance to the NCAA Championships May 31-June 5 at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla.

The regional is headlined by seventh-ranked San Diego State and eighth-ranked Texas A&M, while 18th-ranked Texas Tech and 19th-ranked Cal round out the four top-20 teams assigned to the regional.

“We’ve beaten a lot of top teams this year, so we know we belong there,” said UCD coach Cy Williams. “We want to play against the best teams in the best tournaments and that should prepare you for what you’re going to face in the postseason. We’ve been to plenty of tournaments with fields just as tough as the one we’re going to play in in two weeks, so we want to take what we’ve done this year and go in and compete.”

The Aggies finished fifth or better in six of their 12 tournaments this season and closed the season with back-to-back fourth-place finishes at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic and the PING Cougar Classic before winning last week’s Big West Conference Championship by 17 strokes.

Fellow Big West Conference member Pacific also received a regional selection.

DHS girls lacrosse

Following a league meeting on Monday, Blue Devil coach Jenn Morris announced that the locals will host Bishop O’Dowd at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the first round of the Bay Shore Athletics League playoffs

DHS (14-4, 10-0 BSAL) won both regular season matchups against the Dragons (9-8, 5-5), going on the road to take a 16-7 decision on March 29, then pulling out a 15-3 victory on April 15 on Halden Field.

DHS football

A meeting that Blue Devil football coach Steve Smyte says is mandatory for parents or guardians of all student-athletes interested in playing football for DHS next year will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday in the high school library.

Potential players and their parents/guardians will be given the required documents for physicals, camps and registration forms, as well as the parent handbook and the schedule of events, “expectations and what commitment is needed,” according to second-year mentor Smyte.

“All questions pertaining to being a Davis High football player will be answered,” he said.

Additional information is available by emailing Smyte at [email protected]
