UC Davis senior Tyler Raber, a Davis High graduate, fired five birdies on the Greg Norman Course, finishing the day at 4-under 67 and with a share of the first-round lead at The Prestige at PGA West, which had play suspended Monday by darkness.

Seven teams were not able to complete their opening rounds at the tournament which is co-hosted by the Aggies and Stanford. Players were scheduled to finish the first round beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday before starting the second round.

UCD posted a 5-under 289 with Raber and teammate Matt Hansen leading the way. Hansen carded a 70 and was tied for 12th, Jonny Baxter finished with a 73 and was tied for 51st, Matt Seramin had a 79 and was tied for 81st and Ben Corfee — from El Macero — was tied for 83rd after finishing with an 80.

UCD men’s basketball

After leading the Aggies to wins over Hawaii and Cal State Northridge, Corey Hawkins earned a pair of awards on Monday, nabbing Player of the Week honors from both the Big West and College Sports Madness.

It marks the second time this season that the sophomore guard was recognized with the two awards. Coincidentally, the initial time came when UCD first faced Hawaii and Northridge last month.

Last weekend, Hawkins scored a combined 52 points and shot 61.5 percent from the floor, including a 72.7 percent clip from beyond the arc. He added a team-high five assists against Hawaii.

UCD baseball

The Aggies scored six runs in the three middle innings on Sunday, using RBI doubles from John Williams and Nick Lynch to take control of the game in the sixth, and held on for a 7-5 nonconference win over Washington at Dobbins Stadium.

With the victory, UCD finished its season-opening series with three wins in four games. On Sunday, Lynch finished with three of the Aggies’ 13 hits.

“One of our things this year is ‘together and unselfish,’ ” said Aggie coach Matt Vaughn. “For the most part we did a very good job of that (last weekend). To get three wins on top of that against a very good Pac-12 team, you can’t start much better than that.”

Run-scoring singles by Steven Patterson and Spencer Brann helped UCD take the lead for good at 5-4 in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Spencer Henderson, who relieved Aggie starter Evan Wolf in the fourth, went three innings, allowing four hits and two runs to earn the win. Max Cordy set Washington down in order in the ninth inning, recording his first save.

UCD softball

The Aggies split their four games at the Stanford Nike Invitational, beating Santa Clara twice.

On Saturday, UCD topped the Broncos, 7-2, before falling to Bakersfield, 2-0. The Aggies (5-5) wrapped up the tournament on Sunday, pounding Santa Clara, 14-1, then dropping an 8-0 decision to No. 20 Stanford.

The locals’ offensive explosion against the Broncos on Sunday started slowly as UCD took a 1-0 lead in the third inning when pinch runner Megan Guzman scored on an error.

But the floodgates opened in the fourth as eight Aggies made plate appearances, and scored four times, punctuated by Krista Bava’s two-run double.

UCD’s outburst was paced by Chandler Wagner, who had three RBIs and joined Cat Guidry, Jasmine Lee, Kelly Schulze and Christa Castello in recording two hits in the contest.

UCD women’s water polo

Aggie sophomore Keelia Houston, a DHS graduate, scored six goals on Sunday, including a career-high four against 18th-ranked Pacific, to help No. 14 UCD to a pair of wins at the Davis Challenge.

The Aggies (5-5) finished the tournament at 4-0 by beating the Tigers, 12-5, and getting an 8-6 win over Sonoma State.

UCD senior Carmen Eggert scored two goals in each contest and added four steals and two blocks against Pacific, while classmate Jessica Dunn totaled three goals and six assists on the day.

With goalkeepers Riane Woods and Haley Cameron sidelined by injuries, Aggie sophomore Jillian Wilding played every minute of the two games for the second straight day. She posted nine saves against the Tigers and seven against the Seawolves.

UCD men’s tennis

In one of two singles matches to go the distance on Sunday, Brett Bacharach recorded the Aggies’ only team point in a 6-1 loss to St. Mary’s.

The Aggies (4-5), dropped all three doubles matches at the Korth Tennis Complex, but each was clinched by a single service break.

In singles, Bacharach bounced back after dropping the first set, 6-3, to Sief El Sherbini, the No. 4 player for the Gaels (3-4). The UCD freshman won the final two sets, 6-2, 6-4.

Aggie senior George Horowitz also went three sets, falling to Samuel Bloore, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.

UCD women’s golf

Demi Runas tied for second and freshman Betty Chen tied for eighth individually as the 10th-ranked Aggies rallied on Sunday to finish third at the Peg Barnard Invitational on the Stanford Golf Course.

UCD freshman Raegan Bremer, playing as an individual, tied for seventh, a career-best finish.

The Aggies opened the day in seventh place but shot a 293 — just nine shots over par — as they surged to finish 21-over 589 for the 36-hole tournament. The host Cardinal won their own event.

Runas started the final round in second place and maintained her spot with a par-71, finishing 2-under for the weekend. Sophomores Beverly Vatananugulkit and Blair Lewis each carded a 75, tying for 35th at 10-over, and Amy Simanton finished with a 78, tying for 49th at 15-over in UCD’s first tournament of the spring.
