UCSD Club Sports

Badminton Team

The UCSD badminton team participated in a tri-meet this weekend at UCLA. The third school was UC Irvine.

The UCSD women’s team was an unstoppable force. Both the doubles and the singles teams swept Irvine and UCLA.

The men’s team was not as successful as the women’s team, but it did win the top singles spot against UCLA and took second in the doubles competition.

Overall, the team won seven out of 10 matches against UCLA and four out of 10 against Irvine.

The team’s final match is March 31 at Cal Tech.

Women’s Rugby

UCSD women’s rugby faced Occidental College at home this weekend. It looked to be an easy match, as UCSD downed its opponent handily, 20-0, earlier this year.

It was just as easy as expected, with UCSD coming out on top, 36-0.

The Tritons jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. Tina Evangelou, Kristin King, Mari Wallace, Melina Madrigal and Teresa Facchini all had big days for UCSD in the route.

Next up for the squad is a the Champagne Classic Tournament this weekend in San Diego at Robb Field.
