The UC Davis women’s golf team finished strong on Tuesday, posting its best round of the 54-hole UC Irvine Invitational to eventually finish sixth.

Sophomore Betty Chen paced the Aggies as her final-round, 3-under 69 put her in a tie for fourth at the Santa Ana Country Club. It marked her second straight top-10 finish and fourth of the season.

That score helped UCD card a 4-over 292 on Tuesday, beating its second-round score by seven strokes. The Aggies finished 35-over for the week, just five shots behind fifth-place Long Beach State. No. 8 Stanford clinched the tournament title.

On Tuesday, Paige Lee and Blair Lewis enjoyed their best rounds of the tournament, finishing tied for 24th and 32nd, respectively, for UCD. Lewis cut nine shots off her second-round tally, firing a 72, while Lee carded a 74.

Aggie sophomore Andrea Wong shot a 77 and tied for 27th, while Beverly Vatananugulkit tied for 52nd after posting a 79.

UCD returns to action at the two-day Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational, hosted by San Jose State, beginning Monday.

Freshman Melissa Kellan and junior Kai Murphy combined to form an Aggie sweep when the  Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced its weekly awards on Monday.

Kellan captured both Offensive Player and Rookie of the Week honors, while Murphy garnered Defensive Player of the Week accolades.

Kellan, an attacker from Vienna, Va., shot a combined 10-for-13 with a pair of assists in UCD’s season-opening wins over George Mason and Old Dominion last weekend. She tallied a hat trick with two assists in her collegiate debut against the Patriots on Friday, then followed that with seven goals against the Monarchs on Sunday, the seventh best single-game scoring performance in program history,

Murphy, a goalkeeper from Morristown, N.J., posted a career-high 19 saves in Sunday’s victory at ODU, following a 12-save performance on Friday.

New Aggie head coach Twila Kaufman added a pair of assistants to her staff last week as Robin Grossman and Katie Riley have joined the program.

Grossman comes from Air Force and his primary responsibilities will include involvement in daily field player trainings, game management and recruiting in addition to his duties as the program’s goalkeeper coach.

Riley, who recently played in the College Cup for Stanford and Florida State (in 2011), will focus on conditioning, training sessions, game management and academic affairs for UCD.
