The UC Davis softball team opened its 2013 campaign Friday with a 5-3 win over Southern Miss in the first day of action at the Fresno State Kick-off at Bulldog Diamond in Fresno.

The Aggies rode a four-run first inning to victory, marking the fourth time in the last six years that UCD opened its schedule with a win.

The Aggies took advantage of Southern Miss errors and their base speed. Freshman shortstop Christa Castello and Kayla Tyler both reached on errors, stole second and scored in the first inning for UCD. In her inaugural at-bat in an Aggie uniform, Christina Guidry singled in a run. The Aggies had four steals on the day.

The four runs were all reigning Big West Pitcher of the Year Justine Vela would need to get the win for UCD. Slightly more than two hours after the first pitch of the tournament was thrown, Vela picked up a complete-game victory.

UCD women’s water polo

Aggie senior Jessica Dunn’s hat trick was matched by a pair of Stanford players — Melissa Seidemann and Maggie Steffens — on Saturday as the top-ranked Cardinal defeated No. 13 UCD, 15-4 , at Schaal Aquatics Center.

Dunn scored a pair of 6-on-5 goals in the second quarter then converted the penalty shot on Hannah Curran’s drawn five-meter foul early in the fourth. Sophomore Elsie Fullerton, a Davis High graduate who led the Aggies (1-5) with five drawn exclusions, scored the remaining goal from two meters in the opening minute of the second quarter.

In all, UCD converted just 2 of 8 extra-player opportunities, while Stanford (9-0) was successful on all but one of its six 6-on-5 chances.

Aggie senior goalie Riane Woods had eight saves in 30 minutes of action, while DHS grad Rachel Johnson, a Stanford freshman, played a few minutes toward the end of the contest.

UCD women’s tennis

Juniors Nicole Koehly and Melissa Kobayakawa each won singles matches at the Oregon Student Tennis Center on Saturday, but the Aggies could not get another point and dropped a nonconference match, 5-2, to Oregon.

UCD (1-5) was opening a five-match round trip against Oregon (7-0), which continues Sunday at Portland (11 a.m.).

After earning the break point needed to capture the first set by a score of 6-4, Koehly clinched her victory by topping the Ducks’ Lana Buttner 6-3 in the second set.

Kobayakawa recorded the final point of the day when Oregon’s Sofia Hager retired.

UCD women’s indoor track

Ashley Marshall broke her own Aggie record in the 60-meter dash twice on Saturday at the University of Washington Husky Classic, lowering the mark to 7.35 seconds while winning the event at the highly competitive indoor track and field meet.

She was one of two UCD runners to advance to the 60-meter final as teammate Melanise Chapman finished third in a career-best tying 7.52 seconds, the same as her time in the prelims. Chapmen was running a day after breaking her own school record in the 200-meter dash on Friday while finishing fourth in 24.63 seconds.

Aggie sophomore Veronica Smart also had a successful two-day stretch, taking ninth in the shot put on Saturday (13.76 meters) and 18th in the weight throw on Friday (16 meters) with each mark good enough for fourth on the all-time UCD list.

Other Aggies to post top-five times at the meet included Cekarri Nixon, who went 55.87 in the 400, putting her second in school history; Kayla Carter, who finished the 60-meter hurdles in 8.94 to move up to No. 3 all-time; and Lauren Wallace, who’s 4:56.85 in the mile put her third in the UCD books.

The Aggies capped Saturday’s competition with a second-place finish in the 4×400 relay in 3:48.55.

UCD men’s golf

Aggie golfers Matt Hansen and Tyler Raber, a DHS graduate, each shot 1-over 73′s on Friday to pace UCD in the final round of the Amer Ari Invitational at Waikola Village’s Kings’ Course. The locals finished 16th in their first tournament of the spring season.

Hansen, who opened the event with a 71 on Wednesday, tied for 48th at 2-over 218, while Raber tied for 60th at 4-over. Also for the Aggies, Matt Seramin tied for 70th after his 3-over 222 left him 6-over for the tournament and Jonny Baxter and Ben Corfee each had 77′s on Friday. Baxter ended in a tie for 97th at 11-over and Corfee, who prepped at Jesuit while living in El Macero, was 18-over and finished 112th.

As a team, UCD was 23-over for the 54-hole event, which saw No. 4 UCLA and No. 7 Washington tie at the top.
