From page B2 | April 21, 2013 |

A three-run fifth inning in the second game of Saturday’s Big West doubleheader helped UC Davis snap its four-game slide with a 3-1 win at UC Riverside.

The victory followed the Aggies’ 8-5 loss in the opening game.

UCD (18-23 overall, 5-9 BWC) faces UCR (17-27, 1-12) in a rubber match Sunday at noon.

Cassandra Ginnis started the second game’s only scoring rally with a single down the left-field line, eventually advancing to third on back-to-back wild pitches from Riverside starter Alyssa Razo. Ginnis scored the first run on another Razo wild pitch.

After two walks, Christa Castello (3 for 4) belted a double down the left-field line to drive in two runs.

UCD starter Jessica Thweatt earned the win.
UCD men’s golf
The Aggie men’s golf team fired a 1-over 289 team score in the second round of the Winchester Classic on Saturday and has a four-shot lead over Cal State Fullerton heading into today’s final round at Winchester Country Club.
Ags Tyler Raber, Matt Hansen and Mat Seramin each shot even rounds of 72 on the 7,491-yard course, while Ben Corfee and Jonny Baxter each had 73’s.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Seniors Elizabeth Datino and Hannah Mirza combined for nine goals, while sophomore attacker Meghan Jordan tallied a career-high six assists, helping the Aggies surge to a 19-12 victory over San Diego State in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation action at Aggie Stadium Friday evening.

Mirza shot a perfect 5-for-5 with three goals in 8-meter opportunities. Datino added four goals and sophomore Elizabeth Landry tallied a hat trick to go with four draw controls. Jordan had one goal and three assists in each half for eight total points. Her goal in the 39th minute gave UCD (5-8 overall, 2-4 MPSF) the lead for good.

Senior Stephanie Guercio scored on a pair of unassisted drives, while Jordan had a goal and assist in that boost.

UCD men’s tennis

Kyle Miller pulled out a thrilling three-set win at No. 2 singles and the Aggie men’s tennis team won, 4-3, at Loyola Marymount on Friday afternoon in its final non-conference match of the season.

UCD claimed the doubles point with wins at No. 1 and No. 2, where Miller and Adam Luba took down Todd Volmari and Felix Van Kann, 8-4.

In singles play, the Aggies got straight set wins from Hugo Verdi-Fortin at No. 5 and George Horowitz at No. 6 but, after Toki Sherbakov lost in three sets at No. 1, it all came down to Miller at No. 2.

UCD women’s tennis

Led by seniors Lauren Curry, Zoe Davidson and Ellie Edles, UC Davis defeated Sonoma State 6-1 on Saturday.

The Aggies enters Thursday’s Big West Women’s Tennis Championship with a 10-12 mark.

Curry and Edles were the first to finish their doubles match, defeating the Seawolves’ Lauren Ha and Sheena Johnson 8-2 to start UCD’s day on a positive note.

In singles action, Davidson walked off with a 6-1, 6-2 triumph and Curry ended the Aggies’ afternoon by earning a 7-6 (5), 6-1 win.

UCD track

Trevor Ehlenbach led a 1-2 Aggie finish with his win in the 1,500-meter run on Saturday, while freshman Danielle Steffen had a personal best in winning the pole vault as the Aggie track and field teams finished competition at the Woody Wilson Classic.

The UCD women ended the two-day meet with four first-place finishes. The Aggie men picked up three victories, two of them by Ehlenbach.

Ehlenbach won the 800 on Friday afternoon and came back a day later to win the 1,500 with a season-best time of 3 minutes, 54.98 seconds, also the fastest Aggie time this year. He was the first of three UCD runners in the top four, joined by Jordon Rushing, who was second in 3:56.48, and Cody Nguyen, who took fourth in 3:57.52.

Steffen had a big PR while capturing the pole vault. She cleared 12 feet, 5.5 inches — the Aggies’ top mark this spring — while going over 12 feet for the first time this season.

The Aggie women earned a trio of runner-up finishes on Saturday, including one by freshman Catherine Li, who went 38-3.5 in the triple jump, debuting her at No. 10 on the program’s career leaders list. Erika Barr finished second in the 1,500, while Emily Bush was second in the pole vault at 12-1.5.

UCD water polo

Senior Kathryn Bailey assisted goals by Carmen Eggert and Hannah Curran in the first two minutes of overtime, lifting 18th-ranked UC Davis to a 6-4 win over No. 20 Pacific in Big West Conference action at Schaal Aquatics Center on Saturday.

The Aggies (14-15 overall) picked up their first conference win to finish the Big West at 1-6. The Tigers slip to 16-13, 1-6. UCD wins the tiebreaker for the seventh seed at the Big West Conference tournament with Saturday’s victory.

Senior Jessica Dunn scored two goals in the first half, while sophomores Keelia Houston and Elsie Fullerton each tallied one in the third period to round out the Aggie scoring total. Senior goalkeeper Riane Woods posted 11 saves, including two against Pacific power-play attempts. Bailey assisted on all but one of UCD’s goals.
