Luke Vivolo, a sophomore golfer for UC Davis, shot rounds of 68-69-137 to win the 2013 amateurgolf.com Tour Championship at Quail Lodge Golf Club on Sunday.

Vivolo was a two-shot winner over Santa Clara golfer Evan McLeod, who carded rounds of 70-69-139, by focusing on hitting fairways and greens. Vivolo hit his driver just four times in the entire event.

Three birdies along the way put Vivolo in good position and a clutch eight-foot par putt on No. 17 basically sealed the victory.

While playing for the Aggies this fall, his performance was highlighted by a 27th-place finish at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in October, helping UCD second place at the event. The locals return to competition in February.

Hoops camp

The Davis Wildcats will present a two-day basketball camp for kids in second through eighth grades on Sunday and Monday at Davis High.

The sessions will go from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the camp is open to kids of all skill levels. The cost is $100.

Registration may be completed online at www.davishoops.com, where parents can find additional information about the ongoing program and current team tryouts.

The Blue Devil volleyball program will hold several youth sessions next month for boys and girls age 6 through eighth grade.

Instruction will be given by DHS head coach Julie Crawford as well as Devil players.

Running from 11 a.m. to noon each day, the program will put on a setting clinic Jan. 2, a hitting clinic on Jan. 3 and a defense clinic on Jan. 4.

A new Challenger Division for special-needs players has been added.

Kids ages 4 to 14 are eligible for DLL. League officials require players 9 or older to attend one of the to-be-scheduled January skills-assessment days.

Field hockey club

The Mad Cow Field Hockey Club’s spring season, which will include U16 and U19 squads as well as a new Developmental Program for athletes in grades six through eight, will run from January to April.

The club’s focus is to teach and develop players’ stick skills, knowledge of the game, sportsmanship and overall fitness while fostering the athletes’ enthusiasm for field hockey. This is accomplished through practices — both indoors and outdoors on turf — scrimmages and participation in numerous tournaments throughout the spring season.

The club is based in Yolo County and welcomes athletes from other all areas.

Younger players, ages 8-12, can sign up for the Mad Calves program. The cost for that program is $200, while players on the U19, U16 and U14 squads must pay a fee of $475. The fee covers the cost of all practice sessions, equipment and field rental, uniforms, T-shirts, coaching fees, tournament fees and lunch and snacks at tournaments.

All players must complete and turn in registration and waiver forms before they can participate in practices or games.

For more information or to get the forms, email coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins at sandie@marottiperformancegroup.com.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season. The Starlets offer 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.

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.
