UCD roundup: Banged-up swimmers go 0-1-1

365体育官网Plagued by injuries and illness, the UC Davis women’s swim-and-dive squad dropped its first conference dual meet of the season to visiting UC Santa Barbara, 171.5-117.5, Saturday at Schaal Aquatics Center. The result came the day after the Aggies had tied San Jose State on the road, 150-150, in their first competition of the new year.

Missing almost 10 swimmers from their usual lineup Saturday, the Aggies’ lone individual event winner was former Davis High star Kyla Leacox, whose time of 2:05.62 in the 200 IM outpaced UCD freshmen Olivia Greenberg (second at 2:10.20) and Sophie Sebastian (third with a 2:13.81). The Aggies also won the final swim of the day as Jamie Pincin, Mia Facey, Mia Cunnan and Olivia Smith banded together for the top time (1:36.01) on the 200 free relay.

365体育官网“We had a lot of people sick and injured and even sent one girl to Urgent Care just this morning,” Leacox told The Enterprise. “But we stayed positive.

“We’re right in the middle of a really tiring stretch of training, so it’s hard to swim really fast at a time like this.”

Swimming through a shoulder bug of her own, freshman Zoe Cosgrove was phenomenal in her first trip back to Davis since joining the Gauchos. The former Sac-Joaquin Section backstroke champion for DHS hit the wall first in both the 100 (55.73) and 200 (2:01.88) back.

365体育官网In diving, Davis freshman Sydney Wren swept the day, notching a score of 274.20 to win the 1-meter event and 313.25 to take the 3-meter.

“It wasn’t an ideal meet,” Leacox went on, “but overall our morale is still pretty good.

365体育官网“We’ve still got a couple of weeks to get healthy before conferences.”

365体育官网Friday, UCD posted eight event wins against the Spartans. Those swims came via: Leacox in the 400 IM (4:32.18), Smith in the 1,000 (10:34) and 500 free (5:06.68), Amanda Wilson in the 200 fly (2:06.32), Cunnan in the 200 back (1:06.48) and Jay Jay Eaton’s 100 fly (56.77). Taylor Hornberger’s net score of 257.25 paced the 1-meter dive group, as did her 289.88 clip in the 3-meter.

The Aggies are set to host Fresno State Saturday when the Bulldogs visit Schaal at 1 p.m. Last season, UCD narrowly edged Fresno, 158-142.

Hebert victorious

TEMPE. Ariz. — Aggie junior Kelley Hebert won floor exercise (9.900) then notched a runner-up 9.850 effort on balance beam, to pace UC Davis in a meeting with Arizona State at Desert Financial Arena on Friday. Despite the efforts, the Pac-12 power Sun Devils prevailed, 195.250-187.225.

Hebert’s score on floor exercise marks her highest since tying the school record of 9.950 in last year’s March 15 home finale. It also marks the ninth time she has scored at least 9.9 in the event.

Junior Gabby Landess (9.800), sophomore Shannon Sklow (9.700) and freshmen Logan Clagg (9.625) and Petra Engstrom (9.625) joined Hebert in compiling a 48.650 on floor exercise heading into the final rotation. However, Hebert and Shanae Oishi were the only Aggies not to suffer falls on beam, with that squad slipping to a 44.750 event total.

365体育官网Friday’s dual took place simultaneously with Arizona State’s wrestling dual with Oregon State as part of the overall “Beauty & The Beast” promotion. The Aggies return home for a quad meet with Sacramento State, Alaska Anchorage and George Washington on Friday. The first event is 7 p.m.

Netters lifted by singles

365体育官网STOCKTON — UC Davis men’s tennis rolled to a 5-2 decision at Pacific on Friday.

A singles onslaught featured wins from Aggies David Goulak,  Ariith Jayaraman, Andrei Volain and freshmen Chethan Swanson and Brett Brinkman.

365体育官网Although The Tigers took the doubles point, the local top duo of Ivan Thamma and David Goulak turned in a 6-0 shutout victory

UCD returns to action Thursday at San Francisco, competing at the Cal Club at noon. The Aggies open at home with a Saturday doubleheader against Texas-San Antonio and Sonoma State.

Women’s tennis

On Saturday, UC Davis recorded a shutout win over Sonoma State at home to kick off the 2020 season, highlighted by three freshmen earning their first career dual wins.

365体育官网The Aggies started strong in doubles play, with a new pairing of Kristina Breisacher and Shirley Hall recording a 6-0 win at No. 2. Top duo of Lauren Ko and Sara Tsukamoto dropped just one game in their win.

365体育官网In a back-and-forth battle at No. 3, Jessica Walker and Yana Gurevich won.

365体育官网In singles, Ko posted her first career double-bagel victory. Eventually, Gurevich clinched the 4-0 victory with a straight-set win.

The Aggies will hit the road for their longest road-swing of the season, traveling to the Pacific Northwest next weekend.
