The cream of the women’s ultimate disc Southern California crop gathered last weekend for a warm-up tournament. The tough UCSD players are rarely tested.
The team was divided into two separate squads, X and Y. Both teams went undefeated, embarrassing the other schools by showing even the second-best UCSD players are better than their top competitors.
Claremont finished second in the tournament, UC Santa Barbara came in third, UCLA fourth and Occidental finished fifth.
Lauren Clancey was the star for UCSD. Other standouts were Cherie Lim, Jamie Kinard and Kristina Ow.
Last weekend, the UCSD cycling team trekked to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to compete in the Parkfield Mountain Bike Race.
Although it was its first race this season, UCSD still had a good showing.
In the men’s A cross country category, Jesse Beck finished with an impressive second place. Teammate Pete Knudsen also had a strong day, despite some mechanical problems that kept him from finishing in the top 10 along with Becj
The men’s B cross country team dominated the cycling event, with captain Jason Goldberg finishing in first and teammate Brian Flock close behind after capturing third place. Mike Guan, K.K. Mozumdera and Carlos Rocha also tested their grit for UCSD.
Johnny Yin competed in the Dual Slalom, and Ivan Wong and Brendan O’Brian competed in the downhill event.
The women’s team had a few competitors, with Heather McTighe leading the way.
The UCSD ice hockey team held revenge in a rematch with CSU Fullerton.
Earlier this year, Fullerton was the victor in a dominating way. However, it was different this time, with UCSD using a strong defense to shut down Fullerton’s good players and downing it, 10-5.
UCSD had a number of players with goals. Will Thomas led the way with three goals, and Andrew Jacobsen had two goals and two assists. Will Cohen had a pair of goals, and Bhavin Mehta and Chris Davis each had one.
UCSD hosts Sacramento State at 10:15 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17 at University Towne Centre ice rink.
