Sports briefs: UCD softballers start with a win over Arkansas

From page B3 | February 09, 2014 |

An exciting 5-4 win over Arkansas in the Aggies’ season and tournament opener on Friday was the highlight as the UC Davis softball team went 1-3 in the first two days of the Sportco Kick-Off Classic in Las Vegas.

In the victory, Christa Castello’s RBI single to center field broke a 3-3 deadlock in the top of the seventh inning and aggressive base running pushed another UCD run across the plate to give the Aggies the lead for good.

The locals then dropped a close 4-3 game to tournament host UNLV later Friday and fell to San Diego (5-2) and Baylor (17-1) on Saturday.

In beating a Razorback squad that was receiving votes in both national polls, freshman right-hander Andrea Reynolds made her UCD debut with a complete-game victory.

Lauryn Saunders provided the early offense for the Aggies, homering in the first inning then knocking in Jasmine Lee to tie the game at 2-2 in the third.

After falling behind again, UCD got a run in the sixth frame on a double by Amy Nunez and an RBI single from Kelly Zboralske to make it 3-3.

Then, in the seventh inning Chandler Wagner doubled and came home on Castello’s single to make it 4-3. Moments later, Lee singled Castello to third, then stole second on a play that allowed a heads-up Castello to dash home with the eventual winning run.

In Friday’s nightcap, Saunders hit another homer to pull the Aggies within one run in the top of the seventh.

On Saturday, Zboralske went 3-for-4 in the loss to San Diego and Nunez’s solo home run was UCD’s only hit in falling to Baylor.

UCD women’s water polo

Aggie seniors Alex Rawlinson and Hannah Curran had hat tricks in a 12-5 win over Cal State East Bay and No. 15 UCD split its first day of action at the Triton Invitational at Canyonview Aquatic Center in San Diego on Saturday.

The Aggies (3-6) lost to No. 12 Long Beach State, 7-5, earlier in the day.

Curran scored all three of her goals in the first quarter against the Pioneers, while Rawlinson netted one in each of the first, second and third frames. Sophomore Allyson Hansen and freshman Carla Tocchini also had two goals apiece as UCD never trailed in the afternoon victory.

In Saturday’s early action, five players — DHS graduate Keelia Houston, Ariel Arcidiacono, Paige Oreglia, Erin Schlueter Cuuran — each tallied a goal for the Aggies, who fell to a fellow member of the Big West Conference. Houston scored on an exclusion in the opening minute to put UCD up 1-0, but Long Beach scored the next three goals.

Oreglia’s goal at the beginning of the second period tied things up a 3-3 before the 49ers pulled away for good.

UCD men’s golf

Senior Matt Hansen played an even more spectacular round than his effort on Friday, carding five birdies during a bogey-free round of 5-under 67 to lead the Aggies on Saturday in the final round of the Amer Ari Invitational in Waikoloa, Hawaii.

Hansen’s round moved him into a tie for 24th individually at 7-under. He set himself up for a strong finish by shooting a 68 in the second round.

UCD shot a final-round team score of 1-over 289 and finished 19th at 4-over 868.

Ben Corfee, from El Macero tied for 64th at even par after shooting a 73 for the Aggies on Saturday, Josh Granger had a 76 and ended at 6-over, Luke Vivolo finished at 8-over after his round of 75 and Mike Brockington enjoyed his best round of the week, shooting a 74 to end up at 9-over.

Like Hansen, Corfee’s round featured five birdies.

Third-ranked Oklahoma State raced to a 12-stroke victory at 45-under.

UCD gymnastics

Sophomore Stephanie Stamates captured the individual floor exercise title with a 9.875 on Friday and the Aggies posted 48.800 totals on vault, beam and floor, scoring 194.225 in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation dual meet at the Event Center in San Jose.

Host San Jose State won the meet with a 194.950, holding off its guest with a 48.975 on floor in the final rotation.

UCD (5-8) opened with a 47.825 on uneven bars, counting one fall but getting a 9.750 out of sophomore Dani Judal. Later, strong performances by redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki (9.825) and senior Anna Shumaker (9.800) paced the Aggies on vault.

On floor, Stamates’ winning 9.875 led the way with Shumaker and junior Kala DeFrancesco each adding 9.750s. Then in the final rotation, Shumaker, Judal and Stamates each tallied equal 9.825 effort on beam to form a three-way tie for second place in the meet.

Shumaker, who added a 9.600 on bars and a 9.750 on floor, finished with a second-place all-around total of 38.975. Junior Tiana Montell went 38.725, scoring 9.750 on vault and 9.725 on floor for her top performances.

DHS girls soccer

Monday’s tryouts for the Blue Devil varsity and JV teams have been moved to Brown Stadium’s turf because of poor soccer field conditions.

Varsity tryouts are set for 12:30 to 2 p.m., with JV going 1:30 to 3 p.m.

DHS football meeting

New Blue Devil football coach John Wiley will lay out plans for the upcoming year at a player-parents meeting on Monday at 7 p.m. in the DHS Library.

Wiley will introduce his coaching staff, talk about his philosophy on the program and what it takes to be a winner.

“This will be a great opportunity to get to know him and ask any questions you might have,” says DHS Football Backers President Rich Riffle. “We will introduce new board members and give you the latest on the upcoming crab feed.”
