UCD roundup: Aggie golfers move up to finish seventh

From page B8 | March 28, 2013 |

LAHAINA, Hawaii — Beverly Vatananugulkit’s 1-under 71 during Wednesday’s final round of the Anuenue Spring Break Golf Classic at Kapulua Resort’s Bay Course paced the No. 13 UC Davis women to their best day of the tournament and lifted them into a tie for seventh in the final standings.

The Aggies fired a 5-over 293 on the final 18 holes — tied for the sixth-lowest score of the day in the 18-team field — and moved up two spots from ninth. UCD finished 26-over 890 for the 54-hole tournament, tying with San Jose State.

The powerhouse event featured eight teams ranked in Golfstat’s top 50 and seven of them, including the Aggies, finished among the top seven places. No. 11 UCLA posted a 12-under 276 on Wednesday and was 10-under to finish first.

Vatanagulkit fired her second 71 of the week and led a strong effort for UCD, which also received rounds of 73 from sophomore Blair Lewis and junior Jessica Chulya, a 76 from senior Demi Runas and a 77 from senior Amy Simanton.

Vatananugulkit had three birdies on Wednesday, all of them on the front side of the course, including two over her final three holes. She had pars on each of the back nine holes and finished the tournament tied for 12th at even-par. Lewis’ 73, which came on the heels of an impressive 71 on Tuesday, featured four birdies and a seven-hole stretch on which she was 4-under. She tied for 30th at 6-over.

Chulya cut five strokes on Tuesday from her opening-round score and then took three more off on Wednesday with her 71. She tied with Simanton for 53rd at 14-over. Runas, meanwhile, was 45th at 11-over.

“The course was fantastic and we learned a lot of course knowledge from the first round to the third round,” said UCD head coach Anna Temple. “Our two sophomores, Bev and Blair, really led the way for us. Bev finished in 12th at even par and Blair had two good rounds to finish the tournament after a tough first day. And Jessica had a great round to end the tournament.”

The Aggies are off until April 12, when they open play at Arizona State’s invitational.

Despite hat tricks from senior Elizabeth Datino and sophomore Elizabeth Landry, the Aggies couldn’t keep up with No. 14 Navy, dropping a 19-11 nonconference match at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Wednesday.

Besides the six total goals from Datino and Landry, UCD (3-6) also got two from senior Hannah Mirza and freshman Mary Doyle, plus another from junior Carly Voris. Datino, Mirza, Voris and Stephanie Guercio added one assist apiece, while sophomore Kai Murphy tallied 10 saves, covering the Aggie cage for all but about four minutes of the contest.

For the Mids (11-1), sophomore Loren Generi tied a program record with eight goals and won 11 of her team’s 17 draw controls. Jasmine DePompeo contributed three goals and seven assists for a game-high 10 points.

UCD hung with their powerful opponents in the early going, as Datino and Mirza scored in succession, tying the game after Navy had taken a 2-0 lead in the first two minutes. Voris, who had assisted Mirza for that equalizer, scored a goal of her own in the 15th minute to close the gap to 5-3, but Generi netted three straight — two on eight-meter chances — to help the Mids extend their lead to 11-6 at the break.

Even with the hosts pulling away in the second half, the shot margin (14-12 Mids) was nearly even.

Doyle led the Aggies with six draw controls, while Landry and Mirza each won four. UCD defender Colleen McGee, a native of Annapolis playing less than two miles from her high school alma mater, picked up two ground balls and a steal.

The locals have one more game on this road trip, a Saturday (1:30 p.m.) contest at Drexel.
