6 Damelio-BW-45p

Damon Damelio capped her stellar career at UC Davis by being named to the all-Big West first team volleyball team for the second time.

The Rodriguez High graduate’s final season ended on a sour note as the Aggies fell 21-25, 25-9, 18-25, 27-25, 15-5 to Cal State Northridge, losing their final four matches to end up 14-15 on the season.

The senior outside hitter had 12 kills, eight digs, five aces and five assists in the match. She was one of just three Aggies to start all 29 matches and one of two to play in all 118 sets.

Damelio led the Aggies with 367 kills, 973 attempts and 603 service receptions. She finished second with 101 assists, 25 aces and 86 block assists, third with 317 digs. She became the eighth UC Davis player with 1,000 or more kills, ending up sixth with 1,058 and finished seventh in the Big West in kills per set at 3.11 and fourth in points per set at 3.68.

Football

The stellar TCU career of Jason Verrett (Rodriguez) came to an end with a 41-38 loss to Baylor, one of four losses by three points or less for the Horned Frogs (4-8). He had one tackle and broke up two passes and had two interceptions and a Big 12 Conference-high 16 passes defended, finishing sixth in the nation at 1.5 per game. He also finished the season with 39 tackles, 31 of them solo.

Verrett figures to go high in next year’s NFL draft. At least the experts think so. In recent mock drafts, Peter Schrager of FoxSports.com has him going 20th overall to the Eagles, Chris Burke of SI.com has him going 26th overall to the 49ers and Jeff Reed of BleacherReport.com has him going 29th overall to the Panthers.

Marcel Jensen (Rodriguez) started for Fresno State as the Bulldogs (12-1) dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 62-52 loss to San Jose State.

Deone Bucannon (Vanden) had seven tackles for Washington State (6-6) as the Cougars fell 27-17 to Washington in the battle for the Apple Cup. Easing the pain was news that Bucannon became the first Cougar since 2007 to be named first team all-Pac 12. He led the conference with 109 tackles and his topped the team and was fourth in the conference with five interceptions.

Arizona lost the battle for the Territorial Cup to Arizona State 58-21 with Tra’Mayne Bondurant (Fairfield) recording five tackles for the Wildcats (7-5).

Twelveth-ranked St. Cloud State upset No. 1 Minnesota State-Mankato 54-48 to advance to the NCAA Division II quarterfinals. Damon Treat (Vanden) ran twice for 15 yards, caught two passes for seven yards, returned three punts for 26 yards and ran back three kickoffs for 54 yards for the Huskies (12-1), who next play at No. 2 Northwest Missouri State. Treat was named to the NSIC North Division All-Conference Second Team Offense and Special Teams as a receiver and returner, respectively.

Southern Utah fell 51-20 to Sam Houston State in the first round of the NCAA Division I playoffs. Myles Carelock (Vanden, Rodriguez) had two interceptions and nine tackles in nine games for the Thunderbirds (8-5).

Nevada (4-8) fell 28-23 to BYU in its season finale. Brock Hekking (Vacaville) had two tackles, including one for a 3-yard loss. On the season Hekking had 48 tackles, 31 of them solo, with a team-high 14 1/2 tackles for loss, nine of them a team-high nine sacks. He also intercepted a pass, broke up two others and forced two fumbles.

LaRyan King (Vacaville) had two tackles and Johnny Schupp (Vacaville) played for Colorado State (7-6) in a 58-13 grounding of Air Force.

Lequan Gomes (Fairfield, Solano) scored 11 points and added four rebounds and two steals to help Eastern Nazarene (5-0) stay unbeaten by topping Regis 63-56.

Ronnie Baker (Rodriguez) and Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) alternated solid efforts in losing causes for Alaska (4-3) in the Ayres Inn and Suites Cal Baptist Classic. Baker had 21 points, six rebounds and three steals, while Allen contributed a rebound in a 77-68 loss to Azusa Pacific.

Allen then poured in 12 points and had three rebounds, while Baker had four points and three assists in a 70-59 loss to host Cal Baptist.

Union Pacific (0-9) was defeated by Montana Tech 77-68 and Westminster 88-47 in the Westminster tournament. Anthony Gonzalez (Vacaville) had a combined eight points, eight rebounds and three assists in the two games.

Tyler Idowu (Rodriguez) saw action for St. Martin’s (0-5) in a 94-77 loss to Metro State.

Dickonson State (2-5) split games in the Milanovich Classic, downing Valley City State 67-63 and losing to Mayville State 74-66. Desean Atkins (Fairfield) had a combined five points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal, while Juston Goodwin (Buckingham Charter, Solano) played in both games.

Women’s basketball

Shante Sands (Fairfield) poured in a game-high 21 points and had eight rebounds and a block in 41 minutes as Cal Maritime (4-5) opened the Capital City Classic in Monmouth, Ore., with a 63-49 overtime victory over Corban. She then had three points, six rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal in a 64-46 loss to Western Oregon.

Holy Names (4-2) went 3-0 for the week with Renique Fitzpatrick (Armijo) averaging a double-double (12.7 points, 11.0 rebounds) and Amnesty Bradley (Fairfield) also making big contributions in each victory.

In a 60-53 win over Pacific Union, Fitzpatrick amassed 11 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal, while Bradley had two points, six rebounds and a steal. Fitzpatrick then had 10 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal and Bradley had four points, two rebounds and two assists in a 79-62 bouncing of Bethesda. The same two teams played with Fitzpatrick pouring in a team-high 17 points with nine rebounds, two steals and two assists, while Bradley had five points, four rebounds and two steals in a 71-58 victory.

Tahvia Morrison (Vanden) had one rebound for UC Riverside (3-3) in a 74-64 win over Nicholls in the Great Alaska Shootout.

In Eastern Nazarene’s 59-44 downing of Johnson and Wales, Lucy Santos (Solano) scored six points and had two rebounds, while Ruby Leon (Fairfield, Solano) contributed three points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block for the Lions (3-2).
