UCD roundup: Aggies lose a softball game at Pacific

By
From page B3 | April 24, 2014 |

After falling behind early Wednesday, the UC Davis softball team battled back to tie with three runs in the third inning, but Pacific answered with four in its half of the frame on its way to a 10-4 victory at Bill Simoni Field in Stockton.

With two outs in the bottom of the first, Davis High graduate Melanie Habib blasted a three-run homer to give the Tigers the initial advantage.

The Aggies (15-28) came back to tie the game in the third after Alicia Paine drew a walk to open the inning. She scored on a single by Cat Guidry, who got to second with some heads-up base running. Two consecutive sacrifice flies knotted the score at 3-3.

However, UCD committed two of its three errors in the bottom of the third, helping Pacific take the lead for good.

UCD women’s golf

After winning their fifth consecutive Big West title last week, the Aggies earned more recognition on Wednesday when the league announced its all-conference teams.

Betty Chen, Beverly Vatananugulkit and Paige Lee were each named to the All-Big West first team, Andrea Wong picked up an honorable mention and UCD’s Anna Temple won her second straight Coach of the Year award.

Each Aggie — except Lee, who is a freshman — was named All-Big West for the second straight year.

Chen, a sophomore from Castro Valley, has a team-best 73.2 scoring average this season and has posted six top-10 finishes, including a first-place showing at the Indiana Hoosier Fall Invitational last October.

Vatananugulkit, a junior from Cerritos, finished third at the conference championship last week in San Luis Obispo. It’s her third consecutive appearance on the all-league first team.

Lee, from Folsom, has made an immediate impact on the program by posting a consistent season that has been highlighted by five top-10 finishes and a 74.9 scoring average.

Wong, a sophomore from San Francisco, earned her second postseason award from the Big West after earning first-team accolades as a freshman. She’s averaging 76.1 strokes and has twice finished in the top 10.

UCD women’s tennis

Senior Megan Heneghan earned her third Big West Women’s Tennis Player of the Week award on Tuesday, becoming the first Aggie to win that many in a season.

Heneghen, from Tustin, swept her singles and doubles matches in Saturday’s home finale against San Jose State. The doubles win — with Melissa Kobayakawa — was their 15th straight, a streak that is a program high for the Division I era.
