PORTLAND, Ore. — It was a successful trip north for the UC Davis women’s volleyball team, as it went 2-1 at the UP/OSU Challenge and saw senior Jenny Woolway become the eighth player in Aggie history — and the first setter — to surpass 1,00 career digs.

Woolway, who now has 1,012 digs as an Aggie, needs 21 to surpass former teammate Caroline Mercado for seventh in school history. Woolway became the school’s career assists leader earlier this season.

On Saturday, junior middle blocker Victoria Lee tallied 11 kills and a .579 hitting average while sophomore outside hitter Kaylin Squyres matched that kills total to lead UCD a 25-15, 25-17, 25-21 sweep of Toledo at the Chiles Center.

The Aggies (6-5) fell to Oregon State, 25-18, 23-25, 25-19, 22-25 and 15-12, earlier Saturday after sweeping host Portland in Friday’s tournament opener.

Junior Valerie Brain posted a double-double in the morning match with OSU, then added another 10 kills in the win over Toledo. In that finale, junior libero Megan Lancaster led UCD with 12 digs. Brain and Lee were later named to the all-tournament team.

In Saturday’s early match, Brain sparked a key surge that helped the Aggies escape a 20-16 deficit in the fourth set. She hit two kills and served up back-to-back aces down the final stretch to help force the fifth frame.

Lancaster had a career-high 20 digs against the Beavers while senior opposite Devon Damelio hit 9-2-20 for a .350 hitting average.

On Friday, Damelio and Squyres each tallied nine kills while junior middle blocker Katie Quinn posted a .429 average in a 25-22, 25-21, 25-16 victory over Portland.

UCD returns home to host California on Thursday at 7 p.m.

UCD women’s soccer

The Aggies and Utah exchanged goals throughout regulation, but were unable to break a 2-2 tie after two overtime periods on Friday at Ute Field in Salt Lake City.

The draw is the first of the year for UCD (2-3-1).

“(Friday) was a great show of character from a team that competed for 110 minutes at altitude,” said Aggie head coach Maryclaire Robinson following the match. “The team came together and played with heart and energy.”

Pressure from the UCD front line forced a misplayed back-tap by a Utes defender to give the Aggies the games first goal just seven minutes after the opening whistle.

After Utah (2-1-3) tied the game nine minutes later, 36 minutes passed until UCD regained the lead on the first goal of redshirt freshman forward Ashley Kawasaki’s college career.

In the 52nd minute, off one of seven corner kicks taken by the Aggies throughout the evening, Kawasaki blasted a shot in from 20 yards away.

The back-and-forth battle continued as the contest progressed with the Utes scoring to tie the game at 2-2 in the 61st minute.

UCD outshot Utah 2-1 in the two overtime periods but neither attempt found the net.

Senior forward Kiele Argente led all Aggies with four shots, while junior goalkeeper Taylor Jern had six saves, five of them in the second half.

UCD next plays Sunday at Utah Valley (10 a.m.).

UCD field hockey

The Aggies stayed close to No. 16 Louisville in the first half of a nonconference game played Friday at Ocker Field in Ann Arbor, Mich., but the Cardinals eventually pulled away for a 5-0 victory.

UCD fell to 1-3 as it opened a six-game road trip against Louisville (4-1).

Agustina Singh, Megan Reardon, Cloey LemMon, Sophia Lisaius and Jamie Garcia all had shot attempts for the Aggies, who trailed 2-0 at halftime. Kayla Wigney helped provided offensive pressure while UCD goalkeeper Danielle Harrington has a pair of saves.

The Aggies are back on Ocker Field Sunday to face Michigan at 10 a.m.
