From page B8 | May 24, 2013 |

Senior Demi Runas fired a 1-under 71 in the third round of the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Finals while freshman Betty Chen continued her stellar tournament with a 72 on Thursday to help No. 17 UC Davis move into a tie for 13th place at the University of Georgia Golf Course.

The Aggies shot a 6-over 294, improving their team score for the second straight day. The result came as four of the five UCD players competing had their best rounds of the week:

Chen jumped seven places into a tie for 21st among all players, while Runas was tied for 25th. Freshman Andrea Wong had her best round so far this week, shooting a 75, while sophomore Beverly Vatananugulkit had a 76. Senior Amy Simanton finished with an 82.

The tournament concludes on Friday.

UCD track and field

Four Aggies took one more step toward punching their tickets to the NCAA Championships on Thursday, by advancing through preliminary rounds of the West Regional at the University of Texas.

Ashley Marshall and Melanise Chapman moved into Friday’s quarterfinals in the 100, Lauren Wallace advanced in the 800 and Raquel Lambdin moved on in the 1,500.

Marshall, the school-record holder and Big West champion in the 100, finished third in her heat and tied for the 10th-fastest time overall in 11.45 seconds, while Chapman, the 2012 conference champion in the event, was fifth in the same heat (11.59).

The top three finishers in each of the six heats plus the next six fastest times advanced to Friday’s quarterfinals which will send 12 to Eugene.

Wallace won her heat of the 800 in 2:08.47, while Lambdin ran a career-best time of 4:23.11 in the 1,500 to qualify for Saturday’s quarterfinal round.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Aggie seniors Elizabeth Datino and Anna Geissbuhler, along with sophomore Elizabeth Landry, earned Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Academic honors on Thursday.

Datino will graduate in organizational studies, Geissbuhler is finishing up in clinical nutrition and Landry is wrapping up her second year in international relations. This award continued a string of honors for Datino, who garnered All-MPSF first-team accolades and All-West/Midwest Region second-team distinction earlier this month.

UCD men’s water polo

Daniel Leyson, who brings more than 25 years of high-level coaching and playing experience at the collegiate and international levels, was named Aggie head coach this week.

Leyson’s experience features roles as assistant coach at perennial powers UCLA (2011-13) and USC (2000-02), as well as serving as an assistant for the U.S. men’s water polo national team when it participated in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

Leyson was a three-time All-America player at USC from 1990-92 who went to play for the U.S. National Team in 1994-95 and later internationally in Barcelona, Spain.
