UCD roundup: Aggies add Arcidiacono to water polo squad

By
From page B2 | June 19, 2013 |

The UC Davis women’s water polo team made a big pick-up during the late signing period as Ariel Arcidiacono, the 2013 Western Water Polo Association’s Newcomer of the Year for Colorado State, will join the Aggies next season.

UCD head coach Jamey Wright expects Arcidiacono to enroll in the university for the fall.

Originally from La Jolla High and a veteran of the San Diego Shores club program, Arcidiacono scored a school-record 73 goals for the Rams last season to earn the WWPA newcomer award. She also totaled 31 assists, 43 steals and 28 drawn exclusions in the program’s final season. Colorado State announced that it would drop women’s water polo in favor of women’s soccer early in the 2013 season.

Arcidiacono is no stranger to Schaal Aquatics Center, having scored 12 goals in four games during the Aggie Shootout in early March. Her six goals against Sonoma State in that Saturday’s opener tied a CSU record, matching her Feb. 13 total against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps that earned her a KAP7 WWPA Co-Player of the Week award.

Arcidiacono played eight years for the Shores, helping the club to a silver medal at the 2010 Junior Olympics.

UCD track

Five Aggie track and field athletes will join former UCD standout and 2012 Olympian Kim Conley this week at the USA Outdoor Championships at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.

Lauren Wallace (800 meters), Sarah Sumpter (10,000), Katie Fry (steeplechase) and Ashley Marshall (100 meters) will compete in the USA Senior Championships, while freshman Matthew Bender (discus) will compete in the USA Junior Championships. All of the Aggies will be competing in their UCD uniforms, bringing further prestige to a program that continues to grow at the Division I level.

Each of the Aggies will open competition on Thursday afternoon, and Conley races on Sunday.

Conley, who ran 5,000 meters at last summer’s Olympic Games in London, is looking to continue her elite post-collegiate career. This week’s senior championships are used to select the US team for the World Championships this August in Moscow. Conley is a strong contender to earn a spot on the American team.

This week’s championships will be broadcast on a combination of both internet and television outlets including www.usatf.tv as well as ESPN2, NBC Sports Network and NBC.
