UC Davis golfer Jonny Baxter jumped 19 spots in the individual standings to move into a tie for fourth place and help the Aggie men into third place after Monday’s second round of the Big West Championships.

Playing at the Country Club at Soboba Springs, Baxter was 4-under on the final five holes of the day to finish at 3-under 69. He was at 1-under for the tournament, while UCD is at 16-over for the event after carding a 3-over 291 as a team on Monday.

“It was definitely a better day for us (Monday),” said Aggie coach Cy Williams. “All five guys were competing and we had a couple get it low. We still thought we left quite a few shots out there so we haven’t had our best round yet. That’s coming (Tuesday).”

UCD trails leader Pacific by just five strokes heading into Tuesday’s final round and is just one behind second-place Cal State Fullerton.

On Monday, Matt Hansen fired a 74 and was tied for ninth at 3-over. Matt Seramin had a 73, while Davis High graduate Tyler Raber and Ben Corfee, of El Macero, each carded 75′s. Those three Aggies were tied for 25th at 7-over.

“Jonny pulled out our good round (Monday),” Williams said. “Honestly, I think if we want to take the trophy home we’ll need at least two guys to step up (Tuesday). How you win championships is you have great performances and I think we can do it. I think we can get two or three guys to do some good things (Tuesday).

“We’re in it and we’ll be ready to go.”

UCD, the Big West’s two-time defending champion, was scheduled to tee off at 9:25 a.m. Tuesday, playing with Pacific and Fullerton.

UCD women’s golf

The four-time defending Big West champion Aggies will be seeded sixth in the central region and open NCAA Championship play on May 9 at the University of Oklahoma.

UCD is in the NCAA Regional for the fifth time in six seasons but is being sent out of the west region for the first time. The 17th-ranked Aggies will play the 54-hole tournament at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Course in Norman, Okla.

Third-ranked Duke is the top-seeded team in the central regional and is followed by No. 4 Oklahoma, No. 9 Florida, No. 10 Washington and 14th-ranked Arizona State.

UCD baseball

No. 21 UC Irvine got its second walk-off win of the series on Sunday when a two-run ninth inning double sent the Anteaters past the Aggies, 4-3.

In nine games against top-25 teams this season, UCD (15-26, 3-12 Big West) has lost leads in the ninth inning or later four times. Sunday’s decision was the third walk-off loss for the Aggies in the past four games.

John Williams went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI to pace UCD offensively, but Steven Patterson saw his 10-game hitting streak come to an end.

For Irvine (28-12, 10-5), Connor Spencer’s only hit of the day was the ninth-inning double.

The Aggies had slowly put together a 3-0 lead on single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth frames and were clinging to a 3-2 advantage in the bottom of the ninth.

Craig Lanza (0-2) retired the first two Anteater batters before a single, a walk and a fielder’s choice loaded the bases for Spencer.

UCD plays its next five games at Dobbins Stadium, beginning Tuesday when it hosts Santa Clara at 2:30 p.m.

UCD track and field

Alycia Cridebring (5,000 meters) and Sarah Sumpter (10,000) broke their own school records as they represented the Aggies at the Payton Jordan Track and Field Invitational at Stanford on Sunday night. Both also set Big West Conference records.

Cridebring finished second in her section of the 5K, smashing her previous record by 17 seconds when she crossed in 15:49.05. Sumpter followed in a 10K race that began at nearly 11 p.m., taking fourth in her section in 33:18.51 while racing against a field of mostly professional runners.

Sumpter ran the 10,000 for the first time this year and for the first time since setting a Big West Championship Meet record last May at UC Irvine.

UCD also was well-represented by alum and current volunteer assistant coach Kim Conley, a 2012 Olympian, who won the top section of Sunday’s 5K in 15:22.07.

UCD softball

After falling behind early, the Aggies nearly clawed their way back but lost a 4-3 decision to Cal State Fullerton in a Big West series finale on Sunday at La Rue Field.

The loss snapped UCD’s four-game winning streak, prevented the Aggies from earning a weekend sweep and dropped them to 21-24 overall and 8-10 against conference opponents.

The Titans (23-27, 8-10) scored twice in the top of the first inning, but UCD cut that in half when Kelly Schulze’s single brought home Cat Guidry in the bottom of the frame.

The teams traded runs in the next two innings, with Fullerton crossing the plate once in the second and Schulze again singling Guidry home in the third.

A Titan tally in the fourth was matched in the bottom of the sixth when Chandler Wagner’s sixth double of the season brought home a run. Trailing 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh, UCD’s Schulze was hit by a pitch for the league-leading 16th time and pinch runner Megan Guzman went to second on a hit by Christa Castello (3-for-4 on the day), but that was as close as the Aggie came to tying things up.

UCD is back at La Rue Field on Wednesday when its hosts Stanford at 3 p.m.

UCD women’s water polo

Senior attacker Carmen Eggert scored five goals while senior goalkeeper Riane Woods tallied 12 saves to lead the 18th-ranked Aggies to a 10-4 win over No. 20 Pacific in the Big West Conference tournament’s seventh-place game on Sunday at the Anteater Aquatics Complex in Irvine.

Besides Eggert’s output, senior Kathryn Bailey added two goals while Erin Schlueter, DHS graduate Keelia Houston and Courtney Weddle each scored one for UCD (15-17). Woods played three quarters in front of the Aggie cage before yielding to sophomore Jillian Wilding in the fourth.

UCD led wire-to-wire, as Eggert scored two goals in each of the first two quarters to help the Aggies craft a 7-2 halftime advantage.

Sunday’s game was the career finale for the six UCD seniors: Eggert, Woods, Bailey, Jessica Dunn, Hannah Breen and Danelle Kenny. Dunn (208 goals) and Eggert (189) ended as the No. 2 and No. 3 scorers in Aggie history, while Woods finished as the program’s No. 2 saves leader at 530.
