Seniors Carmen Eggert and Jessica Dunn scored a combined 17 goals Saturday to lead 14th-ranked UC Davis to three wins on the first day of action at the 33rd Aggie Shootout women’s water polo tournament at Schaal Aquatics Center. The Aggies beat Concordia (14-9), Santa Clara (8-4) and Colorado State (13-6).

Eggert scored a game-high five goals in the morning victory over Concordia, then finished the day with a four-goal performance against Colorado State. She also stung the Rams for five of her seven total steals on the day. Against SCU, Eggert did not score a goal but assisted on two while drawing five exclusions.

Dunn led the Aggies (10-7) with four goals in Saturday’s closest contest, the four-goal victory over Santa Clara, and totaled seven assists in the three games.

Senior Riane Woods announced her full recovery from injuries that had sidelined her previously for much of the season so far, posting 14 saves against the Broncos, including two against SCU power plays and one against a five-meter penalty shot. Woods added another seven stops in three quarters against Colorado State.

Other key contributors for UCD were Keelia Houston, a Davis High graduate who managed six goals. Houston had a hat trick against the Rams in a game where Aggie senior Hannah Breen chipped in a goal and two assists.

UCD baseball

Facing a tough Oklahoma State squad, the Aggies kept it close on Friday in a 4-2 loss before a five-run first inning was the difference as UCD fell 10-4 on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla.

Paul Politi had three hits, including a three-run homer for UCD (5-6) in the second game of the series, which ends Sunday with an 11 a.m. contest. The Cowboys (9-1) were led by Zach Fish’s three hits and four RBIs.

The locals actually picked up the first run of the game when second baseman Tino Lipson, who led off with a single to right, scored on a groundout.

But Oklahoma State, who scored eight runs over the first two innings, got five consecutive hits off Aggie starter Spencer Koopmans in the bottom of the first. First baseman Tanner Krietemeier doubled in the first run, Fish tripled in two more and catcher Victor Romero followed with a two-run homer to right.

The rest of the UCD runs came in the ninth inning, as Austin Logan singled with one out, Seth Batty was hit by a pitch and Politi smashed his second home run of the year.

Logan had two hits for the Aggies and Tanner Bily and Spencer Brann had one each.

On Friday, UCD’s Nick Lynch had two hits, including a double, and right fielder John Williams had a pair of hits and two RBIs.

Aggie starter Harry Stanwyck pitched seven innings, holding the Cowboys in check through the first four innings before they managed a pair of runs in the fifth to tie the game, 2-2.

Romero homered to lead off the eighth for the eventual game-winning run.

UCD men’s tennis

Adam Levie and Toki Sherbakov, the Aggies’ last remaining duo at the 124th annual Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Championships at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, fell in three sets in their Round of 16 match on Saturday.

After capturing the opening set 7-5, Levie and Sherbakov dropped the next two, 6-1, 6-3, to Joe Dorn and Warren Wood of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. The matchup featured two of the three unseeded teams to advance to the penultimate day of competition.

UCD women’s tennis

Led by four players recording both singles and doubles wins, the Aggies took down Cal Poly, 5-2, in Saturday’s Big West opener at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

The win improves the Aggies’ record to 4-7 with a 1-0 BWC mark. Cal Poly falls to 2-8 and 0-3 BWC on the season with the loss.

Megan Heneghan and doubles partner Melissa Kobayakawa started the day on a positive note for UCD, winning a doubles match, 8-1, before Nicole Koehly and Layla Sanders clinched the point with an 8-2 victory.

In singles, Heneghan won 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 and Koehly defeated the Mustangs’ Anna Klavins, a DHS graduate, 6-2, 6-3. Sanders and Kobayakawa needed three sets in their respective matches, but each captured the win in the end.

UCD gymnastics

Senior Katie Yamamura broke her own school all-around record with a winning 39.325, leading the Aggies to an all-time best team score of 195.475 at The Pavilion on Friday. Visiting San Jose State won the meet with a 195.700, its third-highest score in program history.

Yamamura opened with a 9.775 on vault, set a personal record of 9.900 on uneven bars, notched a 9.800 on beam, then finished her meet by tying her floor exercise best of 9.850. Additionally, Yamamura becomes just the fourth Aggie to hit a 9.90 on bars, joining Amber Weddell, Ericka Ruelas and Lida Gehlen.

UCD exploded to a 49.050 on that event, the second best score in school history, as freshman Dani Judal and sophomore Lisa Wiktorski hit PRs of 9.800 and 9.850, respectively.

The Aggies also posted a season-best 48.650 on balance beam, the program’s fifth-best score ever. Junior Madeline Kennedy matched Yamamura’s 9.800, while Anna Shumaker (9.725) and freshman Stephanie Stamates (9.700) helped bolster the lineup.

In UCD’s third-best floor performance in school history (49.350), strong scores came from senior Taryn West, sophomore Kala DeFrancesco Stamates and Michelle Ho.

UCD lacrosse

Senior Elizabeth Datino had a game-high five goals for the Aggies but it was St. Mary’s that enjoyed the late heroics as the Gaels edged UCD, 16-15 in overtime on Friday.

It was the first Mountain Pacific Sports Federation contest for the Aggies (1-2).

Datino led seven UCD scorers, including sophomore midfielder Elizabeth Landry, who had a hat trick in her return after missing a game with a hand injury. Aggie defensive wings Sara Quero and Stephane Guercio each added two goals and sophomore Meghan Jordan matched Datino’s team-leading two assists.

UCD track and field

Kira Rienecker scored 4,205 in the heptathlon, narrowly missing a personal best, while Shane Ryan tallied 5,713 points in the decathlon, as both Aggie competitors finished fifth on Friday at the Chico Multi Event Classic.

Rienecker and Ryan were among six UCD athletes to participate in the two-day competition. Tori Edwards finished one place back of Rienecker after scoring 3,862 points, a mark that left her just 16 points shy of breaking into the Aggies’ all-time top 10. Murphy Nicholson scored 3,539 points and placed ninth, while Kelsey Drain finished 10th after scoring 3,460.

Steven Pust made his Aggie debut, earning ninth place in the decathlon with 5,593 points.
