UCD athletes using their heads

From page B1 | January 29, 2014 |

Nearly 40 UC Davis student-athletes, representing five fall teams, earned recognition for their efforts in the classroom when they were named to the Big West Academic All-Conference team this month and another six Aggie football players were similarly honored by the Big Sky.

From the gridiron, UCD defensive back Jabari Howard, defensive tackle Anthony Kaspar, running back Gabe Manzanares, tight end Mark Martindale, offensive lineman Chris Schneider and fullback Dalton Turay each received the recognition.

Howard, Kaspar, Martindale and Turay are each repeat honorees.

To be eligible, the student-athletes needed at least a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale), to have played in at least half of the games and completed at least one term at their current Big Sky institution.

Meanwhile, the Aggie athletes competing in the Big West needed to hold a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, have completed one full year at the member institution prior to the year for which the award is bestowed, and have competed in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests for that year.

UCD was well-represented across the spectrum of fall sports. Women’s cross country had five runners make the list — sophomores Erika Barr and Kaz Shidara, and seniors Alycia Cridebring, Shannon Harcus and Sarah Sumpter — while the men’s harrier squad had seven earn distinction. That group is made up of sophomores Amar Dholakia, Patrick Fitzgerald and Eric Neil; juniors Trevor Ehlenbach, Trevor Halsted — a Davis High graduate — and Will Melton; and senior Grayson Hough, another former Blue Devil.

The Aggie men’s and women’s soccer teams combined for 17 honorees. Sophomores Sienna Drizin, Charlotte Ellberg, Lindsey O’Tousa, Mari Pastor and Ana Marija Sola were joined by junior Lexi Poppoff and seniors Bridget Berman, Hannah Hicks and Emily Irion to be honored from the women’s squad. The UCD men had eight players earn distinction: sophomore and DHS grad Ryan Gross; juniors Andre Brown, Brian Ford, Sam Hoeck, Ian Palmer and Matt Sheldon; and seniors Alex Aguiar and Michael Garrick.

Additionally, nine members of the Aggie women’s volleyball team were recognized on the list. Jillian Johnson and Kaylin Squyres were joined by juniors Megan Lancaster and Katie Quinn, and seniors Valerie Brain, Devon Damelio, Lindsay Dowd and Victoria Lee.
