Sports briefs: UCD women’s soccer squad gets academic award

From page B2 | November 26, 2013 |

The UC Davis women’s soccer team accomplished something no other Big West Conference squad has when it recently earned its fourth consecutive academic award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of American.

The award, given to teams that record higher than a 3.0 collective grade-point average, is for the 2012-13 squad, which earned a 3.13 GPA.

On the field this season, coach Maryclaire Robinson’s Aggies (6-9-3 overall) finished 3-5-1 in the Big West to tie for fifth place, their second-highest finish since joining the conference. UCD was one point shy of earning an appearance in the Big West Tournament.

UCD women’s tennis

Lani-Rae Green, a recipient of eight varsity letters in four sports throughout her athletics career at Waimea High School, became the first member of the incoming Aggie Class of 2014 by signing her National Letter of Intent last week.

Hailing from Kekaha, Hawaii, Green recently completed her third girls tennis season. The year-round student-athlete also sports varsity letters in cross country, swimming and track and field.

She was her prep team’s top player as a freshman and returned to form this past season after taking her junior year off.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program, an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment, is accepting registration for the 2014 season.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning Jan. 12, Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

Spring lacrosse

Registration for Davis Lacrosse Association spring teams is open now and will close on Saturday.

Spots are available for boys and girls squads of multiple ages, but team sizes are limited so early registration is encouraged. Practices begin in February and games will be played from March through May.

For more information or to register, visit www.davislax.org.

Alumni hoops

The Davis High boys and girls basketball programs will host a day of alumni games on Saturday at the DHS gym.

Older former Blue Devil boys players will face off with the DHS junior varsity team at noon, followed by a 1:30 p.m. matchup between Lady Blue Devil alumni and the Davis varsity girls.

The day will conclude with recent graduates playing against the current Devil varsity boys squad at 3 p.m.

For more information or to sign up to play, contact boys coach Dan Gonzalez at [email protected] or girls coach Karen Foster at [email protected]
