UCSD Club Sports

    Men’s Lacrosse

    The UCSD men’s lacrosse team has dramatically turned around its play after last year’s debacle.

    The previous year’s record in the Western Collegiate Lacrosse League: 0-6.

    This year: 5-1. Also, UCSD captured a share of the WCLL Division A South title with its 12-7 win Saturday over Loyola Marymount University.

    It was all UCSD in the first quarter, with Jurjen Westra and Jared Crabtree notching goals for a 2-0 UCSD lead. The advantage could have been much greater, but four UCSD shots came just short, and LMU goalie Peter Campbell made some nice saves.

    In the second quarter, LMU’s Mark Schoelkopf turned things around, scoring four goals to give his team a 6-3 lead heading into halftime.

    UCSD bounced back in the third quarter with Crabtree and Ben Hulley scoring a goal each to make the score 6-5.

    LMU added two more goals, but then UCSD went on a seven-goal run to finish the contest.

    Mike Hunter was clearly UCSD’s most valuable player after knocking in four goals and assisting on two during the final, decisive quarter.

    UCSD goalie Jason Lowenstein made sure that LMU would not pose much of a threat by making 17 saves.

    Next up for UCSD are the WCLL quarterfinals against the University of Arizona. The two teams are familiar with each other, UCSD having grabbed a 14-13 win earlier this year.

    Badminton Team

    The UCSD badminton team, currently in its first year of existence, is doing just fine after a 6-4 victory over Cal Tech.

    With eight matches down and two to go, and the score tied at four, UCSD’s Keri Leong and Norreen Joe stepped up to the challenge, winning their doubles match. Singles star Stella Ly added a singles win and UCSD won the match.

    Dance Sport

    The UCSD Dancesport team showed off its dancing skills last weekend at the San Francisco Open.

    The competition team took first place, and the show team won second in the formation team competition.

    It was not just in team competition that UCSD did well. Individuals also put in some fine performances.

    Greg Emmanuel and Karis Bassa grabbed third in the newcomer cha-cha and John Phung and various partners took first in the newcomer lindy hop, third in the newcomer waltz and third in the newcomer tango.

    Janelle Bouey was a life-saver for UCSD, stepping in for the amateur category and dancing the men’s part in the show team’s performance.
