UCD roundup: Aggie women take down the Tritons in tennis

From page B2 | February 04, 2014 |

The UC Davis women’s tennis team won all six singles matches in its Sunday dual match at UC San Diego to officially collect its second victory of the season, but the Aggies also took two of three doubles matchups to leave the Northview Tennis Courts with an 8-1 nonconference victory.

Unlike traditional Division I duals where two of three doubles wins are required to record the first team point, D-II scoring rules were utilized since the Tritons were the host team. In this format, each individual match is worth a point; to capture a dual victory, five team points are needed instead of the best-of-seven scoring format in D-I.

Tiffany Pham and Samantha Martino teamed up to collect the locals’ first team point thanks to their 8-2 effort at No. 2 against UCSD’s Shannon Theisen and Nava Nowamooz.

Megan Heneghan and Kamila Kecki, the next UCD doubles pairing to finish at No. 3, doubled their team’s lead by downing Tara Vanooteghem and Laura Wilke by the same score.

No. 1 Heneghan, No. 5 Kecki, Pham, Layla Sanders, Nicole Koehly and Frederique Sleiffer each won singles matches in straight sets as the Aggies improved to 2-2.

UCD finally gets a home match when Nevada visits the Marya Welch Tennis Center on Friday at 1:30 p.m.

Visiting Loyola Marymount rallied from an early deficit, posting wins in the final three singles matches to escape with a 4-2 victory over the Aggies on Sunday.

Mother Nature had a hand in Sunday’s contest, forcing a change of venue from the Marya Welch Tennis Center in Davis to indoor courts in Sacramento, where UCD (0-4) rallied after dropping the doubles point.

Senior Kyle Miller drew the Aggies even with a straight-set victory at No. 1 singles and freshman James Wade put UCD ahead with a win at the No. 3. Wade moved into a tie for the team lead in singles victories (12) with sophomore Brett Bacharach.

However, the Lions clawed back for the win as Bacharach and Aggie freshman Alec Adamson dropped marathon three-set battles and UCD’s Parker Kelley also fell.

The Aggies return to the court on Saturday with a doubleheader at the Marya Welch Tennis Courts, welcoming Sonoma State for a 9:30 a.m. opener before starting Big West competition with a 2 p.m. match against UC Riverside.

Junior Keelia Houston and sophomores Ariel Arcidiacono and Allyson Hansen each scored two goals to help the 17th-ranked Aggies pull away from a close first-half battle for a 9-5 win over No. 16 Michigan in the seventh-place game of the Stanford Invitational on Sunday.

The win over the Wolverines followed a 9-8 setback to No. 6 Hawaii in a morning matchup to close out bracket play. Houston, a Davis High graduate, led UCD (2-4) with a hat trick in that contest, giving her a team-leading five scores for the day.
