Joshua Granger, whose pair of top-15 performances late last season helped the UC Davis men’s golf team finish strong, has been named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar after also achieving excellence in the classroom.

Granger, from Monrovia, majored in communication while also pursuing a minor in religious studies. The academic squad honorees needed to be at least a junior academically, have competed in at least three full seasons, participated in 50 percent of their team’s competitive rounds and have a stroke average under 76.0.

Granger averaged 75.3 shots during 23 rounds for the Aggies last season with most of his play coming during the spring portion of UCD’s schedule including two 13th-place finishes down the stretch. He was 1-under at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic in early April for the first top-15 performance, then had a first-round 67 at the El Macero Classic less than two weeks later to help key his second.

The Aggies won that El Macero Classic and took second at the Big West Championship to earn an at-large berth into the NCAA Auburn Regional.

UCD track & field

Seven members of the Aggie women’s track and field team, each of whom participated in the NCAA West Prelim Meet, have earned distinction for their classwork by being named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic team.

Four of the seven also earned Big West championships in 2014.

UCD seniors Kellie Grigg and Alycia Cridebring earned the academic honors along with juniors Katie Barber and Cekarri Nixon and freshmen Holly Tokar, Christine Hoffman and Holly Miller. Student-athletes named to the squad needed to earn at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA and, in the case of outdoor track athletes, have competed in any round of the NCAA Championships.

Grigg, a hurdler from Alameda, posted a 3.82 GPA in managerial economics. She won the 400-meter hurdles at the Big West Championship and also participated in the 100 hurdles at the meet.

Cridebring, who has been honored by the USTFCCCA for her academics several times, compiled a 3.39 GPA in environmental science and management. The distance specialist from Pleasant Hill was the Big West champion in the 5,000.

Nixon, who set a school record (53.55) en route to her conference title in the 400, is from Sacramento. She earned her All-Academic honor with a 3.25 GPA in political science.

Barber set an Aggie record in the high jump (5-8.75) during the season to punch her ticket to the NCAA Prelim Meet. She is majoring in animal science and carries a 3.25 GPA.

Tokar, from Ventura, won the Big West pole vault title and has a 3.53 GPA in neurobiology, physiology and behavior, while Hoffman won the 10,000 at the conference championships, which UCD hosted — capturing first place — at Woody Wilson Track. From San Luis Obispo, Hoffman carries a 3.43 GPA in civil engineering.

Miller, from Rocklin, ran anchor as the Aggies set a school record (45.02) in the 4×100, and has a 3.31 GPA while majoring in human development.

DHS field hockey

In a fun beginning to the Davis High field hockey season, the Blue Devil program will start the tryout process with a Midnight Madness practice that is open to the public.

Local fans are invited to Brown Stadium on Monday at 12:01 a.m. to watch DHS in a two-hour session that also will feature other activities.

Players who have not attended any summer training session can try out, but should first contact coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins at 530 723-3799 or sandie@marottiperformancegroup.com. All players must have completed physicals and obtain clearance cards from the Devil athletic department by Friday.

Lacrosse camps

Registration is now open for the Davis Lacrosse Association’s summer girls camp set for Aug. 11-14.

The camp, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon each day, is designed for girls in grade two through eight with beginning and intermediate skills.

The cost is $135.
