UCD BRIEFS: Ags have a big weekend at Schaal

By
November 9, 2010 |

\n

The UC Davis women\’s swimming and diving team won 12 of 14 swimming events on Sunday to defeat Seattle and Loyola Marymount in a home double dual meet. The victory came a day after the two Aggies set new Schaal Aquatics Center records in a 156-144 loss to San Jose.

\n

UCD stormed back to outscore Seattle, 169-87, and take a 163-94 win over Loyola Marymount.

\n

In that meet, the Aggies\’ A relay team of Linda Hermann, Liliana Alvarez, Megan Leung and Kayleigh Foley combined for a time of 1:46.22 in the 200 medley relay to win the event.

\n

Hermann, Alvarez and Leung each went on to win two individual events, while five other Aggies

\n

posted individual event wins.

\n

Hermann\’s time of 58.64 in the 100 backstroke led to a first-place finish in the event, while her 52.35 in the 100 freestyle gave her a second win on the day.

\n

Alvarez — who was one of the UCD swimmer to set a pool record on Saturday — recorded wins in

\n

the 100 and 200 breaststroke events. After a blistering 1:02.79 to set the new 100 mark the day before, the Aggie freshman clocked in at 1:05.11 on Sunday to win the event again.

\n

Leung\’s two victories on Sunday came in the butterfly events, with a 58.91 in the 100 and a 2:09.29 in the 200.

\n

Heidi Kucera finished first in the 500 free on Sunday with a time of 5:06.31. She was coming off of a record-setting performance in the 200 breast on Saturday, when she clocked in at 2:17.83, breaking her own mark.

\n

Next up for UCD is a home dual meet against Fresno State on Saturday at 1 p.m.

\n

\n

UCD men\’s tennis

\n

The Aggies played just one day at the Gael Classic in Moraga as rain on Sunday prevented the completion of the tournament.

\n

On Saturday, UCD picked up several wins to advance in both the doubles and singles draw.

\n

Toki Sherbakov and Nick Lopez won their first doubles match, beating Cal\’s No. 2 seeded team, 8-6.

\n

In singles, Chris Aria defeated his opponent from Saint Mary\’s, 6-4, 4-6, 1-0 (12-10). In the third-set tiebreaker, Aria erased a 7-2 deficit. Connor Coates also picked up a win in the first round of singles competition, while George Horowitz had a quarterfinal win in Flight D singles.

\n

\n

UCD cross country

\n

A pair of Davis High graduates led the way for the Aggies on Saturday, as freshman Hilary Teaford finished 14th in the 6-kilometer women\’s race and sophomore Drew Petersen took 30th — eighth among scoring finishers — in the men\’s 8K as the Aggies hosted the Doc Adams Open at Putah Creek Reserve.

\n

The UCD men took third overall in the team competition and the Aggie women only fielded four runners, making them ineligible for the team standings.

\n

Teaford crossed the finish line in 22 minutes, 29 seconds, slightly ahead of teammate Shannon Harcus in 16th at 22:35. Petersen\’s time of 25:43 was the fastest among the

\n

Aggie men, and Gregor Lloyd-Smith was next in 42nd as he crossed in 26:07.

\n

The Doc Adams meet is the lone home event this season for the Aggies, who will return to action

\n

on Saturday at the NCAA West Regional in Oregon.

\n

\n

UCD women\’s volleyball

\n

The Aggies faced two of the best teams in the Big West Conference last weekend and dropped both of the matches.

\n

On Friday, Cal State Fullerton swept UCD for its 20th victory of the season, but Saturday\’s match against Long Beach State — which was among those receiving votes in last week\’s Top 25 — was more competitive.

\n

The 49ers not only needed five sets to take down the Aggies (16-10, 7-6), but the outcome was in doubt all the way through the final point.

\n

Sophomore outside hitter Janisa Johnson put down two kills for Long Beach (19-6, 9-3) in a 16-14 final game.

\n

For UCD, senior opposite Melanie Adams posted a team-best 14 kills and 13 digs, while sophomore outside hitter Allison Whitson tallied 13 kills and 11 digs.

\n

Senior libero Kayla Varney tallied 25 digs to lead five Aggies in double figures defensively. Freshman setter Jenny Woolway added 13 digs,

\n

while sophomore defensive specialist Kaitlyn Plum chipped in 12. Junior middle blocker Betsy Sedlak had 10 kills to go with her seven blocks, and junior Katie Denny tallied 11 kills and .258 hitting to complement her four block assists.

\n

After UCD won two of the first three games, the 49ers took a marathon fourth set, 28-26. Next, a pair of Long Beach hitting errors and an Adams tool gave the Aggies a 5-3 lead early in the fifth.

\n

However, UCD later committed a net violation and a back-row attack violation to allow the 49ers to escape an 11-11 tie en route to a 13-11 lead. The Aggies recovered to a 14-14 tie on another Adams-Denny block

\n

combination, but Johnson sent a shot down the line and a UCD shot sailed just wide to close the final set.

\n

Saturday\’s match was the eighth five-set contest for UCD this season.

\n

On Friday, Adams had eight kills and a .438 hitting average and Whitson posted a team-best 10 kills to go with four blocks (including two solos) to lead the Aggie offensive. Woolway had 17 digs, while Varney added 15 to help UCD outdig the Titans by a 55-51 margin.

\n

It wasn\’t enough, however, as Fullerton defeated the Aggies, 25-22, 25-16, 25-22 at The Pavilion.

\n

UCD return to action this weekend with a Central Coast road trip that takes it to UC Santa Barbara on Friday and Cal Poly on Saturday.

\n

\n

UCD men\’s water polo

\n

Edgaras Asajavicius scored two 6-on-5 goals in the first period to spark No. 9 Loyola Marymount to a 6-1 win over the 13th-ranked Aggies in the battle of the Western Water Polo Association\’s top two men\’s teams at Schaal Aquatics Center on Friday.

\n

UCD (15-8 overall) and the Lions (14-8) are now tied at 12-1 in WWPA play.

\n

Freshman Stuart Dooley managed the lone goal for the Aggies, putting his team on the board with 1:42 remaining in the second quarter. LMU held a 4-1 lead at the break, then scored a goal each in the third and fourth periods to pull away.

\n

The Aggies connected on just 1-for-18 shots in the contest, including 0-for-3 on extra-man opportunities and 0-for-1 on five-meter penalty shots. In contrast, the Lions scored all four first-half goals on some type of exclusion.

\n

UCD will be back in the pool on Friday at 6 p.m. for its home finale against Stanford.

\n

\n

UCD field hockey

\n

The Aggies ended their season on a high note, taking a 4-2 victory over Appalachian State on Friday in the consolation game of the NorPac tournament at Belk Turf Field in Davidson, N.C. UCD\’s Marissa Hughes tallied two goals, while Nadia Namdari added a goal and two assists in the win.

\n

The Aggies held a 2-0 halftime lead, before going up by three goals late in the second half, then holding on for the victory. In just its second season as a varsity sport, UCD finished with a

\n

7-10 overall record, improving four games on last year\’s mark.

\n

“The team went into the game very determined to end the season on a high note,” said Aggie head coach Vianney Campos. “Our goal of playing UC Davis field hockey; using our passing game, aggressively pressuring and having fun were very well executed.”

\n

UCD was rewarded for its early offensive pressure with the first goal of the game at 12:16 on a breakaway.

\n

Hughes netted her first goal less than 13 minutes into the game when she started the play at midfield and slipped it to Namdari, who made a 40-yard self-pass into the circle

\n

and crossed it back to a wide-open Hughes for the score.

\n

Later in the first, Namdari\’s scored her eighth goal of the season on a one-on-one move past a diving keeper. The goal game in the 25th minute of play, as the score remained 2-0 at the intermission.

\n

Hughes tallied her second goal of the game in the 57th minute, with Kristen Lopez getting credit for the assist and Cloey LemMon put the game out of reach just 11 seconds later, scoring at the 65:05 mark on a another assist from Namdari.

\n

Conley Craven started in goal for UCD, playing 51 minutes and earning the win before Lauren Sawvelle came in for the final 19.

\n

The Aggies had just one junior on this season\’s team, with sophomores and freshmen completing the roster. UCD will not lose any players to graduation and will look continue their improvement in the 2011 campaign.
