UCD roundup: Aggie volleyball squad wins a defensive battle

By
From page B6 | October 11, 2013 |

Senior opposite Devon Damelio tallied a team-high 16 kills and was one of three UC Davis women’s volleyball players with 20 or more digs on Thursday as the Aggies claimed a five-game win over UC Irvine in Big West Conference action at The Pavilion.

UCD (10-7, 4-4) defeated the Anteaters (9-9, 0-4), 25-21, 23-25, 25-22, 21-25, 15-12, to post its first five-set win in six tries this season.

Damelio’s great performance included 5-for-11 hitting in the finale, to go with 21 digs. Aggie junior Megan Lancaster matched her career high of 20 digs while senior setter Jenny Woolway tied that total.

Freshman Allie Wegener also sparked UCD defensively with 16 digs, a personal-best in her young career. In fact, in the match largely marked by defense, the two teams combined for 206 digs and 26 blocks.

Offensively, Aggie junior middles Victoria Lee and Katie Quinn combined for 18 kills while committing just two attack errors each.

UCD women’s soccer

Goals scored by Aggie midfielder Ashley Edwards and Long Beach State — which came less than 30 seconds apart — were the only tallies on Thursday as the two teams finished 110 minutes of Big West Conference action in a 1-1 deadlock.

Edwards helped UCD (3-5-3, 0-0-1)  take the lead on a shot taken from the right side of the box in the 70th minute. The seniors’ third goal of the season was aimed perfectly just under the crossbar, and inside the left post.

The advantage was short-lived, however, as the 49ers (7-5-1 and 1-1-1) scored the equalizer 26 seconds later to even the score.

Goalkeeper Taylor Jern recorded eight saves for the Aggies, who will play at UC Irvine on Sunday at 2 p.m.

UCD men’s basketball

A minimum of three, with the potential of up to seven Aggie men’s basketball games will be televised during the 2013-14 season. Of this batch of games, The Pavilion may host as many as two televised contests on ESPN as determined utilizing a “Wild Card” format.

UCD will make its first televised appearance at Utah, on Nov. 15, in the first of two nonconference games that will air on the Pac-12 Network. The Aggies will return to the network nearly one month later when they head to Palo Alto for the second time in as many years to face Stanford on Dec. 14.

Through its partnership with Prime Ticket, the official regional telecast home of the Big West Conference, nine regular season games will be featured as announced by the Big West Wednesday. Included in this package is UCD’s March 8 season finale at UC Irvine.

Five regular-season Big West contests will be aired nationally on ESPN2 and ESPNU. All matchups will be determined utilizing a “Wild Card” format in which ESPN will make its selections 3-4 weeks prior to the event.

In addition to its slate of regular-season matchups, Prime Ticket and ESPN also will televise every Big West Tournament game. Prime Ticket will air all four quarterfinal games from the Honda Center in Anaheim and ESPN will air the event’s semifinals and championship contest.
