Sports briefs: Watney off to a slow start at Honda Classic

From page B8 | February 28, 2014 |

Davis High graduate Nick Watney had an early birdie in his first round of the Honda Classic on Thursday at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., then closed with another birdie on No. 17.

Unfortunately, there were three bogeys in between and the former Blue Devil finished at 1-over 71. The score put Watney in a tie for 81st place, eight strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy.

UCD women’s golf

Aggie sophomore Betty Chen started the spring the same way she ended the fall portion of her 2013-14 season — as the Big West Conference Women’s Golfer of the Month.

Chen finished in the top 10 at both of UCD’s February tournaments, averaging 72.2 strokes in her five rounds.

She started her strong month by tying for eighth at Stanford’s Peg Barnard Invitational, where the Aggies placed second. Chen followed that by tying for fourth at the UC Irvine Invitational, as Tuesday’s final round 3-under 69 highlighted her week.

Chen won the Hoosier Fall Invitational at Indiana in October, leading to her first Big West Golfer of the Month honor.

UCD cross country

Aggie senior Alycia Cridebring, an All-West Region cross country runner last fall, recently added an award for her work in the classroom as she was named to the USTFCCCA Division I All-Academic team.

Cridebring, from Pleasant Hill, was among 129 athletes who earned the academic distinction. Honorees must have earned at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA and been among the top 10 percent of finishers at the NCAA regional meet.

Cridebring, who carries a 3.33 GPA and majors in environmental science and management, led UCD with a 19th-place finish at November’s regional race in Sacramento.

This is her first All-Academic cross country award from the organization, but she has been honored three times as a track athlete.
