Three-time Big West Player of the Year Demi Runas, a UC Davis senior, received another impressive accolade on Wednesday when she was named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-America second team.

Runas, from Torrance, earned the prestigious honor after another standout season for the nationally ranked Aggies, who won their fourth straight conference title and finished 16th at the NCAA Championships.

Runas won two tournaments during the 2012-13 season, capturing the Golfweek Conference Challenge in the fall, then winning her first individual Big West title in April. Along the way she had seven top-five finishes including four second-place performances.

Runas is the second All-American for the Aggies in their brief NCAA Division I era, joining former teammate Alice Kim, who was selected honorable mention in 2009.

UCD baseball

Aggies Steven Patterson and Tino Lipson earned second team all-Big West honors while teammate Nick Lynch received honorable mention recognition when the conference announced its squads this week.

Patterson, a junior second baseman from Stockton, hit .324 with 31 runs, 12 doubles, two home runs and 33 RBIs this season. He hit .327 in league games and ended the season by reaching base in 27 straight games.

Lipson saw time at shortstop, second base, left field and designated hitter, but was named second team all-league as an outfielder. The sophomore from El Cerrito hit .339, — which ranked ninth in the Big West — with 31 runs, two doubles, three triples and 18 RBIs. Lipson ended the campaign on a 12-game hitting streak.

Lynch, a sophomore first baseman and designated hitter from Burlingame, followed his Freshman All-American season in 2012 by hitting a team-high .359, which was good for fourth in the Big West the season. In addition, Lynch posted 24 runs, six doubles, a triple, two home runs and 28 RBIs. His .443 on-base percentage was the second best in the conference as he tied a school record by being hit by pitches 21 times.

UCD track meet

The inaugural UC Davis Gunrock Throws Classic will be held on Sunday at Woody Wilson Track with competition in the hammer throw, discus, shot put and javelin.

The meet is sanctioned by the USATF and will have registration prior to Sunday’s competition. The entry fee is just $20 and allows competitors to enter as many of the events as they would like. Weigh-ins will take place at the track before the start of the event.

The hammer is scheduled for 11 a.m., discus will follow at approximately 1 p.m. and the shot put will start around 3. If there are enough competitors for the javelin, it will begin following the conclusion of the shot put.

For more information, contact Aggie assistant coach Jonathan Tipton at jdtipton@ucdavis.edu.

Argenal to lead East Bay

Former UCD player and assistant Gus Argenal has been named the head coach of the Cal State East Bay men’s basketball team.

A native of Lafayette, Argenal played for the Aggies from 1999 to 2004 and ranks seventh on the school’s all-time assists list with 274. He brings coaching experience at both the Division I and II levels to CSUEB, most recently as an assistant coach at Rice University.

Argenal began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Arizona State for the 2004-05 season, before returning to UCD for the following campaign. After a stint as the basketball operations coordinator at the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2006-08, Argenal was an assistant coach at Chico State, then came back to coach for the Aggies in 2011-12.
