Sports briefs: Aggie women’s tennis nets academic awards

By From page B8 | August 22, 2013

When the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its annual list of all-academic recipients recently, honors not only went to the UC Davis women’s tennis squad as a whole, but also to four Aggie student-athletes.

By earning a team grade-point average of 3.2 or above — a number reached by averaging the GPAs of all eligible players who competed in at least one varsity match — the UCD squad earned an ITA All-Academic Team award.

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must compete on the varsity level, have a GPA of 3.5 or above and have been enrolled in school for at least two semesters.

Aggies meeting all of that criteria for the 2012-13 season were recent graduate Lauren Curry, seniors Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa and sophomore Tiffany Pham.

This is the second straight season that Curry, Heneghan and Kobayakawa earned individual all-academic recognition from the ITA.

Bike and Brew Fest

A fundraiser for the Davis-based U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, the Bike and Brew Fest includes food trucks, live music and unlimited samplings of what organizer Brodie Hamilton calls “amazing beers.”

The action starts at 3:30 p.m. Saturday and goes through 8. Tickets are $35 in advance or $45 the day of the event.

A limited number of VIP tickets ($60) include access to the Hall of Fame, 303 Third St., during the event.

The Hall of Fame was re-established in Davis four years ago after a nationwide search for the most bicycle- and tourist-friendly venue in the U.S.

Tickets are available at DavisBeerWeek.com. Bike and Brew Fest has major backing by deVere’s Irish Pub and Sudwerk.


In Wednesday’s UCD women’s volleyball preview, “UCD hopes depth …,” it was incorrectly reported that no Big West Conference teams were ranked in the Top 25.

Hawaii (27-3 in 2012) is ranked 11th by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
