UCSD Club Sports

Women’s Ultimate

The UCSD women’s ultimate team displayed its West Coast dominance by sweeping all its competitors at the Santa Barbara Classic this weekend.

First, UCSD downed undefeated Claremont 13-2. Then it smacked around UCSB with a 15-3 victory to advance to the finals. Against Stanford in the final bracket, UCSD did not slow down, winning again 15-3.

Bryan Martya and Alicia White were dominant forces for UCSD.

The next big competition for UCSD will be the Presidents’ Day Tournament from Feb. 17 to Feb. 19, which it will host.

Men’s Ultimate

The UCSD men’s ultimate team did not have as much success as its female counterpart, but it did hold its own at the UCSB Classic.

The men faced Stanford in the semifinals, knocking them off 14-10. Jeff Smile, Brian Chu and Philipp Miller had great games for UCSD. In the finals against UCSB, the men came up just short, losing 16-15. Jake Chang and Steven Ringel kept UCSD in the match until the very end.

The next big event for UCSD is the Presidents’ Day Tournament, Feb. 17 to Feb. 19 at UCSD.

Women’s Rugby

The UCSD women’s rugby team suffered a disappointing loss against UC Santa Barbara on the road this weekend.

The two teams were as even as can be heading into the game, which UCSB won 24-20.

UCSD had their way with UCSB in the first half, and were actually up by 15 points at the end of the first half. Laura Reeves scored twice and Melina Madrigal also scored.

In the second half, however, UCSB had an amazing comeback, pulling out the win.

Candace Jackman and Teresa Facchini had big days for UCSD.

The team next plays at home on Jan. 27 against Arizona State.

Ice Hockey

The UCSD ice hockey team had a weekend it would rather forget as it fell to California State University Long Beach 8-4.

UCSD gave up four unanswered goals to open up play and never recovered. The team did struggle back, closing to within 5-4 at the end of the second period, but it was too little, too late. Long Beach strapped on its skates and gave it to UCSD in the third period for the dominating win.

Casey Kempneil, Stephen Cohen, Rich Hsiao and Keith Davis all contributed goals. UCSD goalkeeper Scott Friedman tried his best, making 18 saves in the third period alone.
