The UC Davis field hockey team has had a considerable amount of competition thus far and are in the middle of their NorPac Conference competition.
The Aggies are currently 6-6 overall and 2-0 in conference. They hold a perfect 4-0 record at Aggie Stadium. After winning their first three games, they dropped the next six before finding form again.
UC Davis has won three in a row, including NorPac victories over Pacific and, most recently, California.
The 3-1 win over the Bears was the first Aggie victory over Cal since field hockey was reinstated as a varsity sport in 2009.
Sophomore Sophia Lisaius found the goal in the 20th minute before freshman Jamie Garcia scored eight minutes later for the Aggies to give them a 2-0 lead at halftime.
The Aggies stretched their lead to 3-0, which proved to be more than the Bears could handle. The upset follows an epic 4-3 win over Pacific in overtime. UC Davis has been gaining momentum these past couple weeks and will face off with Stanford in an away game on Friday at 7 p.m.
As for women’s golf, the Aggies have been playing a very full fall schedule.
The Aggies have rallied behind seniors Amy Simanton and Demi Runas, who both got some experience in amateur tournaments this summer.
The UC Davis women just recently were runners-up behind Pepperdine at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colo. The Aggies shot an 865 total, behind Runas’s 7-under over three rounds and Simanton’s even 216.
The Aggies recently finished the Windy City Classic hosted by Northwestern over in Golf, Illi. where they were in fifth place after the first two rounds.
UC Davis’s next competition will be in Sahalee, Wash. for the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational on Monday.
