30 Damelio-Color-45p

Whether it’s being on the front row, back row or serving, Rodriguez HIgh graduate Devon Damelio is in the middle of things for the UC Davis women’s volleyball team.

That was certainly the case when the Aggies pulled a 25-21, 25-22, 19-25, 15-25, 15-9 upset of No. 8 Hawaii, a match played before a season-high 1,309 fans and was called by the UCD Athletic Communications Department as the biggest upset in program history.

Damelio had a double-double with 13 kills and 13 digs, also contributing three assists, two aces and two block assists.

The former Mustang is one of two players to play in all 87 sets and one of three to start all 21 matches for the Aggies (12-9, 4-4 Big West) this season. She leads the team with 251 kills and has received the most serves at 431 with 18 errors for a 958. reception percentage.

Her contributions don’t stop there. Damelio is also second with 71 assists, 245 digs, and 75 block assists, tied for third with 15 aces.

Holy Names (1-22) earned its first victory after opening with 21 straight losses as Tatum Bales (Wood, Solano) had 12 digs, an assist and an ace in a 3-0 win over Notre Dame de Namur. She also had a match-high 23 digs, two aces and an assist in a 3-0 loss to Dominican.

Simpson (7-13) went 2-0 for the week with Alexis Angier playing in a 3-0 win over William Jessup and Jazmin Wallace playing in a 3-1 win over UC Merced.

Menlo (13-6) split its two matches with Lainey Brown (Vacaville Christian, Solano) getting four digs in a 3-0 loss to La Sierra and 13 digs and one assist in a 3-0 sweep of Embry-Riddle.

Sarah Cusick (Wood) had 14 kills, 22 digs, one assist and a solo block to help Pacific Union (15-7) outlast Embry-Riddle 26-24, 22-25, 19-25, 25-21, 15-8.

Women’s soccer

Erica Ramirez (Armijo, Solano) recorded two shutouts as goalkeeper as Columbia College (13-2-1, 9-1) blanked Lindenwood-Belleville 8-0 and Hannibal-LaGrange. Ramirez had 12 saves in the two wins as the Cougars, winners of eight straight games, captured the American Midwest Conference regular season championship.

In Cal State East Bay’s 2-1 loss to Cal State Stanislaus, Briana Scholtens (Rodriguez, Solano) played the first 88 minutes and 23 seconds in goal for the Pioneers (4-10-2), making nine saves.

Cal State East Bay also topped Humboldt State 2-0 with Darian Corey seeing action for the Lumberjacks (3-10-3).

Cecilee Kidd (Fairfield, Solano) took five shots for Missouri Valley (11-4-3) in a 1-0 defeat of Culver-Stockton. The former Falcon also played in a 1-0 loss to Baker.

Nyack pounded Post 4-0 as Sandy Garcia (Solano) took four shots and Alexsa Gonzalez played for the Warriors (7-7-2). They both saw action in a 3-2 win over Wilmington as Garcia attempted a shot.

Karlie Mast played for Northwest Christian (4-10-1) in a 4-2 loss to Eastern Oregon and a 2-0 blanking of College of Idaho.

Football

Marcus Jensen blocked plenty of shots as a center for the Rodriguez boys basketball team and knocked down a few passes as a defensive end in football. While he didn’t catch any passes for Fresno State (7-0) on Saturday, he blocked a potential game-winning field goal as regulation ended in the Bulldogs’ eventual 35-28 victory over San Diego State in overtime.

“You couldn’t write this in a script any better,” Jensen told The Associated Press. “We’ve won three games now down to the wire. That locker room is full of competitors and when it is crunch time, we are going to compete.

Fresno State is ranked 16th in the nation by The AP, 18th by USA Today.

Pacific University (6-1) assured itself of its first winning season since 1987 with a 21-6 defeat of Chicago. Craig Bailey (Fairfield) had six tackles for the Boxers.

Dixie State (3-5) kept Humboldt State (0-8) winless with a 28-19 victory. Myles Burton ran nine times for 19 yards for the Red Storm, while Christian Basden caught a pass for 33 yards for the Lumberjacks.

In Southern Utah’s 19-9 win over Idaho State, Myles Carelock (Vanden, Rodriguez) had an interception for the Thunderbirds (6-3), while Cameron Richmond (Rodriguez) caught four passes for 42 yards and the only touchdown for the Bengals (3-5).

Damon Treat (Vanden) caught six passes for 44 yards and returned a punt 7 yards at St. Cloud State (7-1) ripped Northern State 64-7.

Eastern Washington (6-2) got past Montana as Quincy Forte (Vacaville) ran 10 times for 70 yards and had four receptions for 53 yards.

In a loss of historical proportions, Lewis and Clark fell 84-7 to Linfield. The Pioneers (1-6) trailed 77-0 before Keith Welch Jr. (Fairfield) got them on the scoreboard with a 4-yard TD pass late in the third quarter, capping a 19-play, 71-yard drive on which they converted three times on fourth down, including the scoring play. Welch completed 20 of 38 passes for 122 yards.

It was the most points given up the Lewis and Clark and the most scored by Linfield, which set school records for most points in a quarter (42 in the second) and in a half (70) in beating Lewis and Clark for the 35th straight time.

Nevada (5-3) was upset by UNLV 27-22 despite Brock Hekking (Vacaville) making four tackles, including two for losses, one a sack.

Alex Hubbard (Fairfield) made seven tackles, returned two punts 47 yards and a fumble 22 yards, but it wasn’t enough to keep Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (3-5) from falling 17-13 to Northern Arizona.

Johnny Schupp (Vacaville) and LaRyan King (Vacaville) both saw action for Colorado State (4-4) in a 35-28 defeat of Hawaii.

Melvin Mason (Vacaville) ran 23 times for 151 yards and also caught three passes for 15 yards to help Southern Oregon (6-2) maul Montana Western 51-16.

New Mexico Highlands (2-6) dropped its fifth straight, four by seven points or less in a 31-24 loss to Chadron State. Eric Smith (Vanden) had one tackle for the Cowboys.

Keith Williams ran once for 1 yard as San Diego (5-3) bounced Butler 42-14.

Texas Christian dropped a 30-7 decision to Texas as Jason Verrett (Rodriguez) had five tackles and his third interception of the season for the Horned Frogs.
