Sports briefs: Watney finishes 13th at Masters

From page B2 | April 16, 2013 |

Nick Watney, a PGA Tour golfer and 1999 Davis High graduate, shrugged off a forgettable first-round score on Thursday and played his way back into a tie for 13th place as the Masters finished on Sunday at Augusta National.

Adam Scott won golf’s first major of the season, edging Angel Cabrera, of Argentina, in a playoff.

Watney was on fire in his second and third rounds — shooting a 3-under 69 on Friday and a 4-under 68 on Saturday — then carded an even-par 72 in the first round on Sunday. The former Blue Devil, who eagled No. 15 on Saturday and made a hole-in-one during Wednesday’s par-3 event, had a birdie on the 16th hole Sunday to solidify his score.

Finishing the tournament at 1-under, Watney was eight strokes back of Scott and Carbrera, and earned just over $145,000 at the event.

City golf championship

Matt McClure backed up his 62 on Saturday with a 65 on Sunday at the Davis Golf Course, capturing the Davis City Championship by three strokes with a 7-under total of 127. Hunter Rappleye and Stephen Griggs tied for second as each carded a 130.

Other notable golfers to play well at the event included former Davis High standout Taylor Lowe, who tied for seventh at even par, and current Blue Devil senior Chase Dossa, whose 2-over performance put him in a tie for 12th. In addition, UC Davis player Will Scarlett — who prepped at Woodland High — was tied for 23rd at 9-over and current DHS linksters Cyrrus Espino (38th) and Patrick Cajandig (42nd) got into the act.

Also at the tournament, Tom Marks edged Herb Jensen in a playoff to clinch the Senior Championship, Devin Engebretson won the First Flight title, David Taormino took the Second Flight and Gil Torres was victorious in the Third Flight.

UCD women’s golf

Aggie Demi Runas shot a 2-under 70 in the final round of the PING/ASU Invitational at ASU Karsten Golf Course on Sunday, tying for second individually and coming two strokes away from defending the title she won a share of last year.

Runas led No. 16 UCD to a 10th-place finish in the powerful tournament that featured many of the nation’s top college teams. The Aggies carded a 7-over 295 on Sunday to post a 15-over 879 total for the 54-hole event.

In tying for runner-up honors, Runas finished at 7-under 209 overall. She is ranked 22nd in the country as an individual.

Additionally, UCD sophomore Beverly Vatananugulkit concluded the event by shooting a 71 on Sunday, bringing her in at even par to tie for 22nd place. Freshman Andrea Wong and senior Amy Simanton each shot 77s in the final round, with Wong tying for 48th at 7-over and Simanton tying for 69th at 15-overall. Aggie sophomore Blair Lewis carded an 82 on Sunday, finishing 87th.

UCD now turn its attention to the Big West Championships, which begin April 21 in San Luis Obispo. The Aggies are three-time defending champs of the event.

UCD baseball

The Aggies were limited to just five hits on Sunday in dropping the finale of a three-game Big West Conference series, 7-2, to Long Beach State at Blair Field.

Starting pitcher David Hill tossed five scoreless innings of two-hit ball with two walks and one strikeout for the Dirtbags (16-18, 6-3), before UCD (11-22, 0-9) scored two runs in the sixth inning.

Aggie starter Evan Wolf (1-2) suffered the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) on five hits in four innings.

At the plate for UCD, second baseman Steven Patterson posted his seventh hit of the series on Sunday while designated hitter Nick Lynch had a team-best two hits and scored a run.

In the sixth, first baseman Austin Logan hit a RBI double, before pinch hitter Mike Mazzara followed with an RBI groundout to account for all of the runs for the Aggies, who stranded 11 base runners.

UCD pays a visit to Nevada on Tuesday (2 p.m.) before hosting UC Riverside for a weekend series. Friday’s first pitch is at 2:30 p.m.with the two teams starting at 1 p.m. on Picnic Day.

UCD softball

The tough-luck Aggies allowed just three hits to host UC Santa Barbara on Sunday at Campus Diamond, but one of them left the park, accounting for the only run of UCD’s 1-0 loss.

It was the second time in two days that the Gauchos (25-16, 6-5 Big West Conference) topped the Aggies (17-21, 4-7) by that score.

Starters from both teams threw three scoreless innings until UCSB’s Shelby Wisdom, who was an Elk Grove standout in high school, hit a solo shot to left-center of off Justine Vela, who finished with four strikeouts.

Christa Castello, Cassandra Ginnis, Christina Guidry, Jasmine Lee and J.J. Wagoner provided the hits for UCD, which faces Pacific on Wednesday (2 p.m.) at La Rue Field to complete a split series against the Tigers.

UCD club boxing

Davis High graduate Hector Lopez’s Aggie boxers continued their successful season at the USIBA National Tournament last weekend at USF.

UCD fighters Colin Schmitt (155 pounds), Fabian Rivera (165) and Mac Pham (125) each won championships in their weight divisions, helping the local squad take home the event’s Best Team award. Rivera was honored as the tournament’s Best Boxer.

“This was a great experience for our boxers,” Lopez said.
