Despite dropping the season finale, 2-0, on Saturday, the UC Davis softball team finished strong, sweeping a Friday doubleheader from Hawaii to win its last series of the year.

The Aggies finished 21-33 overall and 9-12 in the Big West Conference, to finish fifth. They honored seniors Jessica Barrett, Kimberly Pena, Caitlin Voss and Chandler Wagner on Saturday, but Pena’s special moment came in Friday’s 4-3 Game 2 victory.

With her team trailing 3-2 heading into the bottom of the seventh, UCD’s Cat Guidry scored on a Christa Castello triple to tie the game and bring up pinch hitter Pena. The senior hit a rocket toward third base that was deflected into foul territory, allowing Castello to come home with the winning run.

Aggie Amy Nunez hit her sixth home run earlier in that contest.

UCD won the first game, 5-1, behind a five-inning gem from Dana Cruse. The freshman pitcher allowed just four hits and one run while striking out a career-high eight batters.

By preventing the Rainbow Wahine from scoring throughout her two-inning appearance, closer Andrea Reynolds picked up her league-leading fourth save of the season.

UCD women’s golf

Blair Lewis shot a final-round 78 on Saturday but no other Aggie broke 80 and UCD was in 12th after the final round of the NCAA West Regional at Tumble Creek Club at Suncadia Resort.

The locals finished higher than their 13th seed, but out of the top eight where they would have advanced to the NCAA finals.

The Aggies shot a 31-over 319 during windy conditions on Saturday, and were 63-over 927 for the week.

Lewis, who had a hole-in-one during the opening round of the tournament on Thursday, tied with teammates Betty Chen and Paige Lee for 44th place at 15-over. Chen and Lee both shot 80 on Saturday.

UCD sophomore Andrea Wong tied for 61st after her final-round 82 put her at 19-over, and junior Beverly Vatananugulkit tied for 96th at 26-over after shooting an 81.

The entire lineup will return for the Aggies next season.

UCD track and field

Kira Rienecker scored a career-best 4,555 points to finish seventh in the heptathlon at the Big West Multi-Event Championships at Woody Wilson Track at UCD on Saturday, while teammate Murphy Nicholson also had a career best in the event and Hawk Hammer did the same in the decathlon.

Nicholson scored 4,077 points and finished 13th in the heptathlon while Hammer — who won the pole vault — finished 11th with 5,723 points.

Rienecker’s seventh-place finish scored two points toward the Big West Track and Field Championships, which will be in full action next weekend at Woody Wilson Track. The Aggie women are two-time defending champions.

Hammer had the local fans in the crowd excited with his win in the pole vault, clearing 14-4.75 on his first attempt.

UCD baseball

Junior outfielder Austin March finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs to back senior right-hander Harry Stanwyck, who scattered just five hits over seven solid innings Friday night as the Aggies beat Gonzaga, 7-2, at the Patterson Baseball Complex in Spokane, Wash.

UCD (20-25) was victorious for the third time in four games to pass its win total from last season.

The Aggies’ 15-hit attack included four from junior catcher Isaak Silva and one apiece from every player in UCD’s starting lineup. March’s two-run single in the fifth gave the locals a 5-0 lead, which was more than enough for Stanwyck (3-6), who carried a no-hitter into the fourth and struck out five.
