COTATI — Freshman center Carla Tocchini scored four goals while three other Aggies each netted two as the 18th-ranked UC Davis women’s water polo team rolled to a 16-7 victory over Sonoma State on Saturday at Rudloff Pool.

Tocchini hit all of her goals on power plays, scoring one in the first quarter, one in the second and two in the fourth for her first collegiate hat trick. Katrina Husted, Ariel Arcidiacono and Allyson Hansen each scored twice for the Aggies (1-1), who built a 5-0 lead in the first period and an 8-1 edge by halftime.

Earlier in the day, Hansen scored three goals while seniors Hannah Curran and Alex Rawlinson added two each in a 14-11 exhibition win over the Olympic Club. A fixture on the Northern California water polo scene, the O Club features several collegiate All-Americans.

UCD women’s tennis

Playing their second road match in less than 24 hours, the Aggies captured the key doubles point with two wins on Saturday at Pacific, then clinched the 4-3 team victory by splitting in singles play.

UCD improved to 1-1 on the season as it lost, 7-0, at No. 1 Stanford on Friday. Saturday’s victory was the Aggies’ fourth straight over its former Big West rivals.

Meghan Heneghan, Melissa Kobayakawa and Tiffany Pham each secured wins in both doubles and singles to help pace UCD.

The Aggies dropped the No. 1 doubles matchup before Heneghan and Kobayakawa teamed up for a 6-2 win at No. 2 doubles. Pham was on the winning end of a doubles match at No. 3, joining Samantha Martino for a 6-4 victory.

Heneghan and Kobayakawa then had straight-set singles wins with Heneghan giving up just one game in beating Iveta Masarova, 6-1, 6-0, at No. 1. Kobayakawa was nearly as dominate at No. 4, rolling past Gregana Boncheva, 6-2, 6-1.

Pham came up big at the right time, winning the match tiebreaker against Pacific’s Francis Dean, 11-9. She won the first set, 6-3, before falling 4-6 in the second and forcing the extra play.

Against Stanford, the Aggies combined to win just three doubles games at Taube Family Tennis Stadium before taking on five nationally ranked opponents in singles. Both Heneghan and Nicole Koehly were able to win three games in their matchups, but were upended by No. 6 Kristie Ahn and No. 40 Carol Zhao, respectively.

With the win, the Cardinal collected the 900th victory in the program’s history.

UCD swimming

Senior Haley Porter won both sprint freestyle events while taking part in two first-place relays, and Aggie diver Audrey DeNeffe and swimmers Liliana Alvarez and Marissa Brown each claimed two event titles in UCD’s 174-126 victory over UC Santa Barbara in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation meet at Schaal Aquatics Center on Friday.

The Aggies improve to 8-0 in dual meets this season.

Porter edged Gaucho senior Sophia Yamauchi in the 50-yard free with a time of 23.82 seconds, then immediately followed with a 51.24 — the No. 2 time in pool history — to claim the 100 free. She also swam the freestyle leg on UCD’s first-place 200 medley relay squad, which set a Schaal record of 1:42.52. Porter finished her day by leading off for the winning 400 free relay squad (3:28.40).

Alvarez won close races against UCSB junior Katie Records in each breaststroke event. The Aggie’s 1:03.21 in the 100 race bested Records by a 0.07, while her 2:16.08 gave her a 0.41 edge on Records in the 200. Both Alvarez and Records eclipsed the previous pool record of 2:16.93. A three-time NCAA Championships qualifier, Alvarez also swam the second leg of the 200 medley relay victory.

Brown took down both distance freestyle events, posting a 10:14.34 in the 1,000 then adding a 4:59.64 in the 500, while DeNeffe claimed victories on both diving boards to score 18 individual points. Her 251.40 on the 1-meter board led a 1-2-3 Aggie sweep that included Shannon Stewart (243.75) and Lucy Lafranchise (235.125), although the unofficial winner was senior Jen Meyer, who scored 255.45 as an exhibition competitor. DeNeffe finished her day with a 254.18 on the 3-meter board, just ahead of teammate Hanna Tears’ 244.05.

Other UCD event-winners included junior Samantha Shellem (1:51.74 in the 200 free) and Hilary Hunt, who swam a 56.91 in the 100 backstroke.

The Aggies will look for the first undefeated dual meet season in the history of the program on Sunday when they host Loyola Marymount at 10 a.m.
