UCD BRIEFS: Aggies win a Big West title

By
October 31, 2010 |

Jonathan Peterson won the menÕs 8K race and Calvin Thigpen finished third to lead the UC Davis menÕs cross country team to its first-ever Big West Conference Championship on Saturday at UC Riverside.

PetersonÕs title is the second straight individual conference championship for UCD and the first menÕs individual championship in the AggiesÕ Division I history. The junior finished the race in a time of 23:40.2, more than 17 seconds faster than the second-place finisher.

In addition to Peterson and Thigpen, Jonathan Sees finished sixth overall, placing three Aggies in the top 10. UCD totaled 64 points to outlast UC Riverside, which finished second with 66 points. UC Santa Barbara finished third with 70 points while Long Beach State came in fourth with 76 points.

Thigpen, a senior out of Santa Rosa, clocked in at 24:25.1 while SeesÕ sixth-place time was 24:30.7.

The UCD women were led by Krista DrechslerÕs 14th-place finish in the 6K race, which she completed in 21:13.4, and placed fifth overall. Caitlin Fitzgerald finished 17th overall in a time of 21:20.0.

UC Santa Barbara won the womenÕs title with 35 points to edge Cal Poly, which finished second with 37 points.

The cross country team continues competition Saturday as it hosts the Doc Adams Open at Putah Creek Reserve in Davis. The menÕs 8,000-meter race begins at 10 a.m. while the womenÕs 6,000-meter race will start at 10:45 a.m.

WomenÕs swimming

Heidi Kucera, Linda Hermann and Kayleigh Foley each posted two individual wins and the UC Davis womenÕs swimming team won seven individual events and the 200 medley relay to sweep Pacific and Nevada on Friday in Stockton.

UCD defeated Pacific 144-112 and topped Nevada, 154-99, to move to a 3-1 dual meet record on the year.

UCD hosts San Jose State at 1 p.m. Saturday at Schaal Aquatics Center in its first home meet of the season. The Aggies then host Seattle and Loyola Marymount at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.

MenÕs soccer

Freshman Kevin Schulte set a UC Davis single-game record as he assisted four different Aggies in the menÕs soccer teamÕs 4-2 victory Saturday over Cal Poly at Aggie Soccer Field.

UCD moves to 6-11 overall and 4-5 in Big West play. With the win, the Aggies earn three points and move back into a tie for third place in the Big West standings with Cal State Fullerton, bumping Cal Poly into fifth place. Cal Poly now stands at 6-6-3 overall and 3-3-2 in the league.

SchulteÕs four assists set a UCD single-game record and bests the three assists from Matt DeJong set in 1999 against Humboldt State. The goals were scored by Ethan Shawlee, Lance Patterson, John Joslin and Dan Reese.

UCD closes out the regular season at 7 p.m. Wednesday at UC Riverside.

Field hockey

Casey Wollbrinck scored two goals for the UC Davis field hockey team, helping the Aggies advance into overtime where they eventually took a 4-3 win after penalty strokes vs. Pacific on Saturday in Stockton. The game marked the first time in program history that an Aggie contest was decided by penalty strokes.

Marissa Hughes scored the game-winning penalty stroke. With the win, the Aggies improved to 6-9 and 2-4 in NorPac competition and secured the No. 3 seed in the playoffs, while the Tigers dropped to 2-14 and 0-6 in conference play.

In the stroke-off, Lauren Sawvelle came up with a pair of huge saves for the Aggies, as the Tigers failed to convert on their first two shots.

The Aggies will begin competition in the NorPac tournament Wednesday in Davidson, N.C.

Volleyball

Senior Kayla Varney posted 14 kills and 19 digs while sophomore outside hitter Allison Whitson led the Aggies with 17 kills, but UC Davis was unable to protect a fifth-set lead Saturday at Cal State Northridge.

The Matadors won 3-2 by set scores of 10-25, 25-21, 19-25, 25-21 and 15-13.

UCD snaps its three-match winning streak, falling to 16-8 overall and 7-4 in the conference race.

On Friday, Whitson and junior middle blocker Betsy Sedlak led the Aggies to a three-set sweep at UC Irvine.

WomenÕs soccer

The UC Davis womenÕs soccer team couldnÕt find the back of the net against UC Riverside on Friday, but the defense held up en route to a 0-0 tie at Aggie Soccer Field.

The Aggies held a 23-13 advantage in shots for the game, but neither team managed to reach the scoreboard in 90 minutes of regulation play and two 10-minute overtime periods. The Highlanders kept the game close with their physical play, tallying 24 fouls on the game,

including four yellow cards.

With the tie, UCD moved to 6-9-2 and 1-5-1 in Big West play, while Riverside is 1-13-3 and 0-6-1 in conference play.

Lisa Kemp and Allison Kelly each tallied five shots for the Aggies in the draw. Kathleen Brandl and Maria Magana split time in goal for UCD, while Jessica White playing the entire game for Riverside.

UCD will close out the season at 1 p.m. today against Long Beach State.

MenÕs basketball

Two-time All-Big West Conference selection Joe Harden recorded a double-double to lead the Gold team to a come-from-behind 72-65 win in the UC Davis menÕs basketball teamÕs annual Blue-Gold Scrimmage on Friday.

Due to injuries to Todd Lowenthal and Ryan Silva, the inter-squad contest saw every participant play all 40 minutes. The hotly contested

affair went down to the final minute, with the Gold team clinging to a 66-65 lead with 41.3 seconds remaining.

Senior guard Mark Payne made six straight free throws in the gameÕs final 32 seconds to seal the victory.

The game featured the first appearance in an Aggie uniform for the most highly

acclaimed recruiting class to enter UCD. The five-member class did not disappoint. Freshman Josh Ritchart recorded 19 points on 8 of 11 shooting, while collecting six rebounds. Harrison Dupont, a Citadel transfer, led all scorers with 20 points and eight rebounds for the Blue team.
