Ice hockey

    In the grand tradition of UCSD ice hockey, the team swept three games last weekend over UCLA, East Washington University and College of Canyons.

    The first game against UCLA on Thursday started out rough for UCSD when UCLA scored its first goal just a few minutes into the first period. Scoring was relatively even until the third period when UCSD led, 5-4.

    After the second intermission, however, UCSD pulled it together to score seven unanswered goals in the third period, four of which belonged to Eliot Mendehlson. The overwhelming offensive attack was highlighted by dual hat tricks from Andrew Jacobson and Keith Davis.

    UCLA failed to recover in the third period, leaving the score 12-4.

    On Friday night it was EWU’s turn to meet defeat. Crucial to the win was goalie Sean Fine, who secured his first shutout. Another standout performance came from Davis, who had his second hat trick of the weekend. Though East Washington was supposed to be one of the team’s fiercest opponents, UCSD won the game easily by a final of 5-0.

    But the most resounding UCSD pounding was dealt to College of the Canyons, which was served 16 unanswered goals.


    The first event of the year for UCSD’s waterski teams, its second annual Oktoberfest, spelled victory for the men’s team, though the women’s team lost its first local competition in six years.

    Events included slalom, tricks and jumping, all of which are combined to form an overall score for each athlete.

    Standout performances for the men’s team, which earned the men’s team overall Championship, came from Tom Stout, who broke the UCSD jump record for the first time in seven years with a distance of 107 feet. However, Stout still placed second to UCLA skier Mike Leonardi, who jumped 111 feet.

    Stout also placed third in slalom and eighth in trick to become the men’s overall champion. Tim Odell placed second in this category and team captain A.J. Hubner took fifth.

    The women’s team also had standout performances, such as those of Katie Ambrose and Robin Hodges, who placed second and fourth overall, respectively. Yet it was San Diego State that swept the event on the women’s side.
