A 1-under 71 from Blair Lewis and a 72 from Paige Lee, who finished the day in fifth place, paced the 35th-ranked UC Davis women’s golf team to the best second-round score out of every team in the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational at San Jose State on Monday.

Totaling a 3-over 291 in the second round, after a 299 in the first, had the Aggies in a tie for second with San Francisco entering Tuesday’s final round. The two teams trail No. 20 Oregon by just two shots.

Lewis opened with a 79 but then carded UCD’s low individual score of the day with her impressive 71 to move into 20th place at 6-over. Lee’s back-to-back par rounds had her in fifth, while Aggie sophomore Andrew Wong was tied for 13th at 4-over after an even-par second round.

In addition, UCD’s Betty Chen was tied for 28th after shooting 76 in each round and senior Jessica Chulya was tied for 33rd at 9-over.

UCD softball

Marissa Chapa picked up her inaugural victory as an Aggie and Alicia Paine earned her first career save on Sunday when UCD defeated Boston University, 4-3, for the second time in as many days at the Santa Clara Marriott Classic. Then, in the tournament finale later Sunday, a seventh-inning rally by Seattle snatched a win away from the Aggies, who fell 7-6.

Even though Boston jumped out to an early lead by plating a run in the bottom of the third, UCD (7-15) stormed back with four runs of its own in the top of the fourth to take a 4-1 advantage.

Four different Aggies drove in runs in the decisive inning, starting with Kelly Zboralske’s fourth homer of the season, a solo shot to lead off the frame.

Lauren Saunders followed by drawing a walk, Krista Bava reached on a single and Cat Guidry earned a free pass to load the bases. Kimberly Pena and Caitlin Voss then earned RBI walks before Jessica Barrett forced in her the eventual winning run when she was hit by a pitch.

Boston tacked on two runs in the bottom of the fifth before Paine entered and tossed three shutout innings to shut the door.

In the next game, UCD and Seattle combined to score nine times in the first four innings of a slugfest that featured 26 hits.

For the Aggies, Christa Castello finished 3-for-4, with a double and an RBI and Amy Nunez had two hits and knocked in three.

However, with UCD leading 6-4 entering the bottom of the seventh, four Redhawk singles — along with two Aggie errors — led to three Seattle runs for the comeback win.

UCD is back on the field Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. when it heads to Shea Stadium for a Causeway Classic matchup with Sacramento State.

UCD men’s tennis

The ninth-seeded Aggie duo of freshman Alec Adamson and sophomore Adam Levie teamed up to reach the round of 32 at the 125th annual Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Championships at the La Jolla Beach Tennis Club over the weekend, then won to help UCD to a 7-0 shutout of Villanova on Sunday afternoon in San Diego.

After winning their tournament opener on Saturday, Adamson and Levie defeated Boston College’s Jonathan Raude and Alexandre Thirouin, 8-4. But the pair then ran into top-seeded Max De Vroome and Kaes Van’t Hof, falling 8-6.

First-day UCD winners Adam Luba/Kyle Miller and Brett Bacharach/James Wade both lost round of 64 matches on Sunday to close out their tournament run.

Following tournament action, the Aggies returned to the court to sweep Villanova in a dual match.

UCD won two of three doubles matches to earn the first point, then captured five singles matches in straight sets. Levie’s 3-6, 6-5, 10-8 victory at No. 5, completed the Aggies’ perfect singles day.

Adamson, Mitch Thorp, Parker Kelley, Bacharach and Wade were the other singles winners for UCD, which now gets set for a busy weekend.

The Aggies travel to Fresno State for a 1 p.m. Saturday match before hosting Montana (10 a.m.) and Sonoma State (3 p.m.) on Sunday.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggie freshman class had a huge day on Sunday at the Marya Welch Tennis Center, helping UCD to a 4-2 win over Sonoma State.

After the first-year duo of Samantha Martino and Kamila Kecki cruised to an 8-2 doubles win, the Aggies (5-5) clinched the point behind a win by upperclassmen Megan Heneghen and Melissa Kobayakawa, who topped Leire Martinez/Lauren Ha, 8-3, at No. 2.

UCD freshman Frederique Sleiffer, shut down Karlee Budge, 6-0, 6-0 at No. 6 singles and Kecki beat Ha, 6-0, 6-2, at No. 5 to leave the Aggies needing just one more win.

That victory came from Kobayakawa, who stopped Sheena Johnson, 6-1, 6-4, at No. 4.

UCD gets back to Big West Conference play this weekend with matches at UC Santa Barbara (Saturday) and Cal Poly (Sunday).

UCD men’s soccer

Less than two weeks after the announcement that the Aggie men will host Sacramento Republic FC, the brand-new USL PRO squad, in an exhibition match on Sunday, March 16, the university warns fans that the contest is nearly sold out.

There are 1,175 tickets available for the match and current UCD students get in free until capacity is reached.
