Sports briefs: UCD women in fifth after first day of golf regional

NORMAN, Okla. — Beverly Vatananugulkit drained four birdies and shot a 3-under 69 on Thursday in the NCAA Central Regional at the University of Oklahoma, helping the 16th-ranked UC Davis women’s golf team end the first round in a fifth-place tie.

The Aggies opened the 24-team regional — their fourth straight and fifth in six years of being in Division I — with a 3-over 281 and were tied with No. 27 Michigan State. The top eight teams after Saturday’s final round will advance to the NCAA finals later this month.

Big West Freshman of the Year Andrea Wong and classmate Betty Chen each had 73′s for UCD on Thursday, while seniors Demi Runas — the three-time defending conference player of the year — and Amy Simanton had 76′s.

Vatananugulkit, who took third at the Big West Championships in April, is just two shots behind leader Emily Collins of Oklahoma, who had a 67.

“We got off to an all-right start but were able to recover well on our back nine,” said head coach Anna Temple. “Bev, Betty, and Andrea did a great job leading the team (Thursday). There are a lot of great teams in the field and it will be important for us to stick with our plan (Friday). Demi’s and Amy’s leadership and experience will play a big role for us for in the second round.”

The 54-hole regional is being played at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club which is playing to 6,298 yards this week.

Local leads MLS rookies 

San Jose Earthquakes rookie Adam Jahn — who lived in El Macero but prepped at Jesuit before starring for Stanford — has filled in admirably with teammates Alan Gordon and Steven Lenhart each serving MLS suspensions in recent games.

Jahn has scored in each of the past two games, helping San Jose (3-3-5) secure a draw against Montreal on Saturday then beat Toronto, 2-1, on Wednesday.

With the two tallies, Jahn moved into first place in rookie scoring. His four goals also rank seventh among all MLS players.

The Earthquakes are back in action on Saturday at Seattle, then return home to host Colorado at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara on Saturday, May 18.
