UC DAVIS CRACKS TOP 5
After a 3-1 weekend at the Triton Invitational for a third place finish, UC Davis pulled in a No. 5 national ranking for the first time since 2008. That season the Aggies received a No. 5 ranking in the season’s final poll, however its highest mark during season was No. 6. This week marks the third time this campaign in which a Big West team cracked the top 5. Hawai‘i received a No. 4 rank on February 3 and February 10.
After senior Allyson Hansen received Athlete of the Week Honors on February 10, junior Olivia Husted nabbed her first honor this week. It is the first time since April 2012 in which UC Davis has claimed back-to-back Player of the Week awards.
UC Irvine sophomore Mary Brooks netted a goal in every one of UCI’s four matches last weekend for a 10-goal total. Brooks scored six against cross-town rival Long Beach State, and set a program record when she netted 5 in the second period.
