UCD roundup: Aggie softballers shine at Strike Out Cancer doubleheader

By
From page B2 | April 28, 2013 |

A pair of exciting come-from-behind victories sent the UC Davis softball team to a sweep of Cal State Fullerton in a Big West doubleheader on Saturday at La Rue Field.

In the opening game of the Aggies’ ninth annual Strike Out Cancer awareness and fundraising event, UCD (21-13, 8-9) scored the only run of the contest when Christina Guidry’s crafty slide barely eluded the tag of Titans catcher Ariel Tsuchiyama in the bottom of the eighth inning. Guidry scampered home on Jasmine Lee’s chopper to the right side.

The teams were scoreless up until that point thanks in part to Aggie starter Justin Vela, who got her 13th win with a complete-game three-hitter. Vela struck out four in shutting down Fullerton (22-27, 7-10).

Cat Guidry was 2-for-4 to pace the Aggies at the plate, including an eighth-inning single that put her sister in position to score the winning run.

In the nightcap, the Titans took a 2-0 advantage in the second frame but J.J. Wagoner’s two-run triple in the bottom of the fourth tied things up. Krista Bava then drove home Chandler Wagner with what turned out to be the game-winning run in the fifth inning.

In addition to Sunday’s series finale at noon, the UCD program also will honor the 1973 and 2003 Aggie squads in a “Celebration of Champions” pregame ceremony. Members of the 1973 team (responsible for UCD first league title) and the 2003 group (winners of the program’s first NCAA championship) will team up to face the Aggies in an alumni game at 2:30 p.m.

UCD baseball

Following a walk-off 5-4 win on Friday at Anteater Ballpark, No. 21 UC Irvine used a five-run fourth inning on Saturday to defeat the Aggies, 8-2, in a Big West Conference contest on Saturday.

UCD fell to 15-25 overall and 3-11 in league play despite pounding out 10 hits. It marked the third straight time the Aggies have had 10 or more hits in a loss.

Starting pitcher Spencer Koopmans (1-6) took the loss for UCD as he gave up four runs on five hits in just 3 1/3  innings.

Aggie Steven Patterson, the reigning Big West Field Player of the Week, extended his hitting streak to 10 games by going 1-for-4 on Saturday, while first baseman Nick Lynch continued his strong play in the series, going 2-for-4 with a RBI. The sophomore is 5-for-7 though the first two games against UCI (27-12, 9-5).

On Friday, UCD had another 11 hits but managed just four runs as pinch hitter Ryan Cooper’s squeeze bunt in the bottom of the ninth inning brought Jerry McClanahan home to break a 4-4 tie.

In the loss, Aggie third baseman Paul Politi had two hits and became just the third player in program history to eclipse 700 career at-bats.

UCD women’s water polo

Five different Aggies each scored one goal as seventh-seeded UCD dropped its first-round contest to second-seeded host UC Irvine, 8-5, in the Big West Conference tournament on Friday.

The 18th-ranked Aggies (14-17) then saw sixth-seeded UC Santa Barbara — the No. 16 team in the country — come from behind to beat them, 10-9, in the consolation semifinals on Saturday.

On Friday, senior Kathryn Bailey, junior Hannah Curran, senior Carmen Eggert, senior Jessica Dunn and sophomore Paige Oreglia scored one goal apiece for UCD, in that order. Eggert and Dunn each recorded hat tricks in Saturday’s contest, with Davis High graduates Keelia Houston and Elsie Fullerton joining Kathryn Bailey in adding single tallies. Senior goalie Riane Woods totaled 11 saves in the two games.

The Aggies will face Pacific in the Big Wes tournament’s seventh-place game Sunday at 11 a.m.

UCD women’s tennis

After sweeping UC Riverside on Thursday to advance to the Big West quarterfinals, the Aggies were bounced from the tournament by Long Beach State on Friday by that same 4-0 score.

The tournament’s No. 7 seed, UCD ended its season with an 11-13 overall record.

The Aggie doubles duo of Ellie Edles and Tiffany Pham pushed Long Beach State’s Klaudia Malenovska and Sarah Cantlay to the limit, but dropped their doubles match at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, 8-6. After winning another match to earn the doubles point, Long Beach took the first three singles matches to reach the four-win threshold to earn one of four spots in the semifinals.

Friday marked the final UCD appearance seniors Lauren Curry, Zoe Davidson and Edles.

UCD track and field

The Aggie women captured the meet-ending 4×400-meter relay on Friday, in near school-record time, to lift UCD to a 94-94 tie with rival Sacramento State in the annual Causeway Track and Field Dual at Woody Wilson Track. The Hornets won the men’s matchup, 120-69.

Ashley Marshall, Lauren Wallace and Trevor Ehlenbach each had a pair of wins for the Aggies, with Marshall taking the 100- and 200-meter dashes and the other two each winning the 800- and 1,500-meter runs. In all, the women won 10 of the 18 events, while the men were victorious in four.

Other winners for the UCD women included Danielle Steffen (pole vault), Praise Adesida (discus), Katie Barber (high jump), Kellie Grigg (400 hurdles), Katie Fry (3,000) and the 4×400 relay. Caine Harder (400) and Ethan Ostrom added wins for the local men.

The UCD quartet of Cekarri Nixon, Tonie Williams, Melanise Chapman and Shanie Landen turned in a 3:41.02 in the 4×400, less than a second off  of the school-record time.
