UC Davis golfers Jonny Baxter and Matt Hansen combined for 10 birdies as each fired rounds of 3-under 68 on Tuesday to move up the leaderboard in The Prestige at PGA WEST in La Quinta.

The Aggies, who are co-hosting the tournament with Stanford, shot a 9-over 293 in the second round and were in 11th place at 16-over 584.

Individually, Hansen was tied for ninth at 2-under while Baxter, who had an eight-shot improvement from his opening-round score, was tied for 31st at 2-over. UCD’s Luke Vivolo shot 78 in the second round and was 11-over, Mike Brockington had a 79 and was 15-over, and Ben Corfee, from El Macero, posted an 80 and was 6-over.

A couple of the Aggies played as individuals as Joshua Granger was tied with Corfee for 47th, after a solid round of 72, and Nicolas Noya shot a 79 and was 11-over.

The Cardinal led the tournament by 14 strokes with the final round set to begin Wednesday morning.

UCD men’s soccer

Aggie assistant Eric Mild, a 17-year men’s soccer coaching veteran with a record of success at the NCAA Division I and Division II levels, has been selected as the eighth head coach at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore.

Mild was selected from a national search that drew more than 70 applicants from all levels of the game. He succeeds Jim Brazeau, who resigned in November to focus on his duties as director of coaching for the Willamette United Soccer Club.

Mild comes to Pacific after five years as the top assistant coach for Dwayne Shaffer at UCD, where he helped lead the Aggies in their successful transition to D-I in his second stint with the program. During his tenure, UCD qualified four times for the Big West Tournament and won the conference’s north division in 2012.

Mild previously served as the top assistant coach for the Aggies from 1997 to 2001.

Hot Shots hoops

The Davis Hot Shots, a local youth basketball club, will hold tryouts for boys ninth-grade, JV and varsity squads on Wednesday and Thursday.

The workouts are set for 6 to 8 p.m. both nights at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

Davis Baseball Academy

The Davis Baseball Academy will hold tryouts for players ages 9 to 12 on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the lighted softball field in Community Park.

The 9- and 10-year-olds will work out from 10 to 11:30 a.m., followed by 11-year-olds from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. and 12-year-olds from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The cost is $10.

“With these younger kids, we will start the season later in the year so they have a chance to play Little League,” says Academy director Kevin Keefer.

Pro players Cody Keefer, Mike Turay, Ray Hernandez and Jake Rodriguez are expected to be on hand for the tryouts.

In addition, the Davis Baseball Academy’s batting cage facility at 5100 Chiles Road, is now open. Interested teams or individuals can contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 to reserve cage time.
