Sports briefs: UCD’s Hawkins recognized nationally

UC Davis guard Corey Hawkins earned one of 25 spots on the Lou Henson All-America Team on Monday, an honor bestowed to the top mid-major players in Division I college basketball.

In addition to receiving the national award from College Insider, Hawkins also received Big West Newcomer of the Year and All-Big West First Team accolades in addition to finishing the season as the conference’s scoring champion — a first for the Aggie program.

The Goodyear, Ariz., native joins Long Beach State senior James Ennis as the only two players from the Big West to earn spots on this exclusive list.

Hawkins, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, averaged 20.3 points per game in 2012-13.

Besides Hawkins, only two other underclassmen — sophomores Tyler Haws (BYU) and Juan’ya Green (Niagara) — received All-American status.

Rather than assemble a first team, second team, third team and honorable mention, the Lou Henson All-America squad is one group of 25 players.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Senior attacker Elizabeth Datino scored a career-high seven goals while senior Hannah Mirza and freshman Courtney Neff each added hat tricks, helping the Aggies take a 14-goal halftime lead, then finish a 23-6 victory over Howard on Monday at Greene Stadium.

Datino matched her previous career high of six before the halftime break, including two scores in the first three minutes of play. She finished with a perfect 7-for-7 shooting chart, helping UCD (3-5) knock down 74.2 percent of its shots. Mirza also had an assist and six draw controls to go with her three goals, while Aggie freshman Ellie Delich tallied two goals and two assists.

The locals outshot the Bison (1-10) by a 25-4 margin during the first half as Datino’s personal 2-0 start was doubled to 4-0 after Carly Voris and Mirza netted unassisted goals in the fifth and sixth minutes.

UCD women’s golf

An eagle helped highlight Beverly Vatananugulkit’s opening round at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic on Monday, leading her to a 1-under 71 as the Aggies were tied for ninth place. Vatananugulkit, who captured Big West Freshman of the Year honors last season, is tied for seventh place.

The powerful 18-team tournament, featuring five top-20 teams including 13th-ranked UCD, is being played at Kapalua Resort’s 6,036-yard Bay Course on Maui and is being hosted by the University of Hawaii through Wednesday.

The Aggies shot a 13-over 301 on the first day and are tied with No. 24 Denver, No. 39 Oregon and Colorado.

UCD seniors Demi Runas and Amy Simanton each had 76′s on Monday and were tied for 43rd, sophomore Blair Lewis shot 78 and was tied for 62nd, and junior Jessica Chulya was tied for 82nd after opening with an 81.

UCD softball

For seven full innings on Sunday, Aggie starter Justine Vela and her Oregon State counterpart Marina Demore matched each other pitch-for-pitch and prevented their opponent from scoring a run in Sunday’s nonconference game at La Rue Field. It was the Beavers who finally broke through in the eighth, turning a leadoff triple into the only run of a 1-0 win over UCD.

No. 24 Oregon State improved to 22-5 with the victory, while the Aggies (13-14) are now set to begin Big West Conference play with three games at Hawaii beginning on Friday.

“To challenge a Pac-12 team that’s ranked at this level, I told my team how proud I was of them (after the game), and how they should be proud of themselves,” said UCD head coach Karen Yoder.

In the Aggies’ sixth game of the season against a nationally ranked opponent, Vela gave the home fans plenty to cheer. Facing a Beaver lineup that contained six batters with a .300 batting average or higher, the UCD right-hander allowed just four hits — two in the first seven innings — and recorded eight strikeouts.

The Aggies also had four hits, two from Megan Guzman and one each from Kayla Tyler and Jasmine Lee. But UCD couldn’t string those together for a run, and OSU’s Ally Kutz drove in teammate Hannah Bouska — who had tripled — in the eighth inning to capture the victory.

Conley in world championships

UCD alum and volunteer coach Kim Conley, a member of Team USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, represented her country again on Sunday as the American took fourth in the 8K race of the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Poland.

Conley, a 2009 UCD graduate, took 30th individually, posting a time of 25:45 to score points for the U.S. Neely Spence Garcey was the top finisher for the Americans, taking 13th in 25:08.

Conley catapulted onto the world running stage last summer when she staged a stirring final stretch to finish third in the 5,000-meter run at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore. Her memorable finish qualified her for the London Games.

In February, she earned her spot on the U.S. cross country team by finishing second at the national championships in St. Louis.

Allison in Big Dance

Davis High graduate Nikol Allison started at forward for Cal Poly, playing 32 minutes and pulling down a team-high nine rebounds, but the 14th-seeded Mustangs fell to No. 3 Penn State on Sunday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Allison, a senior who graduated from DHS in 2009, added a steal, but struggled with her shooting and finished with only three points.

Junior Molly Schlemer paced Cal Poly with 24 points, and the Mustangs were within five when Allison made a free throw with 3:21 left in the first half, but the Nittany Lions pulled away from there to win, 85-55.

Cal Poly was in the tournament because of a win over Pacific in the Big West Conference Tournament finals. Allison came off the bench in that game, scoring 10 key points.

UCD boxing

The Aggie club team, which is coached by 1981 DHS graduate Hector Lopez, performed very well at last weekend’s National Collegiate Boxing Association Regional Championships in Reno.

Fighting inside the El Dorado Casino, UCD standout Colin Schmitt defeated Fabian Ramos of San Jose State and James Monk of Air Force to win the regional title. With the victory, Schmitt earned a spot in the NCBA championships, set for April 4-6 in Connecticut.

“Colin dominated each round with his movement and boxing skills,” Lopez said.

Another Aggie fighter, 125-pounder Mac Pham, was strong but did not advance.
