Two locals among Aggie academic stars

Six members of the UC Davis men’s water polo team — including Davis High graduates Trevor Allen and Teddy Nicholson, both juniors — were recognized Tuesday when the Western Water Polo Association named its all-academic team.

The two former Blue Devils were joined in being honored by Aggie senior Michael Millstein, junior Chris Richardson, sophomore Alex Bagdasarian and redshirt freshman Jacob Ley.

To qualify for the WWPA All-Academic rolls, student-athletes must have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, played in at least 50 percent of the team’s contests for that year and have completed at least two quarters or one semester at that institution.

For Allen and Nicholson, it was their third WWPA scholastic award. Millstein, who hails from Alamo, got his second such honor — a number that would be higher but for injuries that limited his playing time in the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Richardson, a three-time All-WWPA honoree from Palos Verdes Estates, snared his first all-academic award, as did Bagdasarian, an attacker from Cupertino, and Ley, a center from San Jose. With a 3.87 GPA in computer science, Ley had the highest average of any of the 38 total conference honorees.

The Aggie six also used that intelligence in the pool, as UCD went 14-13 overall, posted a 5-0 record in the WWPA regular season and finished second at the league tournament. Under first-year coach Daniel Leyson, the Aggies were ranked 12th in the final national coaches’ poll.
