BRIEFS: UCD golfers excel in Auburn

By
February 24, 2011 |

AUBURN — Freshman Daniel Covrig, competing as an individual, won medalist honors with a 7-over 220 to lead three members of the UC Davis men’s golf team who placed in the top five at the William Jessup Spring Classic at The Ridge in Auburn.

Covrig opened the tournament with a first-round score of 74, then carded a 1-over 72 on the second day. He concluded his run with another 74 to edge Sacramento State’s Jake Pineo by two strokes to win a tournament for the first time in his Aggie career.

In addition to Covrig, sophomore Josh Granger and freshman Matt Seramin were also individual competitors and finished third and fifth, respectively.

After carding a 78 during the first round, Granger improved on his score by seven strokes for a second-round score of 71. It was a season-low score for Granger as well as the lowest round of the day at the tournament. He finished at 12-over 225 to claim third place.

UCD will next compete beginning Monday at the USC Collegiate Invitational at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village.

UCD field hockey

Prep standout Courtney Hazy has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Aggies in the fall of 2011. Hazy becomes part of a group of eight incoming players for UCD.

“Courtney comes to the Aggies from a very powerful high school and club program in Southern California,” said Aggie head coach Vianney Campos. “She brings a high level of intensity and aggressiveness that will impact our program in a positive way. Courtney also brings a strong sense of anticipation and fearlessness when defending which will mold well with our current defensive/midfield unit.”

Hazy, a 5-foot-4 midfielder, comes from Harvard-Westlake School in North Hollywood. She led hear team to a 12-0 overall record in 2010 and a first-place finish in the Mission League by scoring 16 goals.

UCD women’s soccer

The Aggie program is hosting a wine-tasting fundraiser on Saturday at Antiquite Maison Privee in Sacramento from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The cost is $50 per person and includes a light dinner and prizes, as well as silent and live auctions. Proceeds will benefit UCD women’s soccer team.
