Notes: In the fall of 2009, women’s field hockey competed in its first season since being discontinued back after the 1982 season. However, since no records remain from the previous incarnation of the sport, most numbers set during the 2009 and/or 2010 seasons constitute school records. As a formal field hockey record book becomes established at UC Davis, such marks will added to the year-end list of school records in future issues of this report.

2011 Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame inductees Tony Moore, Ray Goldbar, Jason Cox, Kathy DeYoung and Greg Lee. Not pictured: Scott Gordon and Matt DeJong.

Greg Warzecka announced his retirement after 16 years of service as director of athletics. During his tenure, the department won six NACDA Directors’ Cups and saw some of the most significant achievements in school history.

Daniel Descalso, who played for UC Davis from 2005 to 2007, earned a call-up from the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds to the St. Louis Cardinals in September; then made the big club’s 25-man roster in 2011. He hit his first major league homer on May 3 against Florida.

• Five former student-athletes and two former coaches were inducted into the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame on June 4... Alphabetically, 2011 CAAHOF induction class comprises Jason Cox (men’s basketball), Matt DeJong (men’s soccer), Kathy DeYoung (women’s volleyball, softball, women’s golf coach), Ray Goldbar (men’s and women’s gymnastics coach), Scott Gordon (men’s golf), Greg Lee (men’s tennis) and Tony Moore (men’s track & field)... Additionally, longtime gymnastics meet director Molly Goldbar (wife of Ray) earned the Special Recognition Award for volunteer contributions... Finally, former Aggie quarterback and current Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen earned the inaugural Aggie Legacy Award, granted to former student-athletes for post-UC Davis sports-related achievements.

• After 16 years at the department helm, Greg Warzecka announced his retirement as director of athletics... A former baseball coach-turned-administrator, Warzecka became the 11th director of athletics on August 1, 1995... His tenure with the Aggies includes several key mileposts in department history: most notably the launch of athletics-related financial aid and the move to the Big West Conference and NCAA Division I membership... Warzecka also oversaw a substantial upgrade in the campus’s athletics facilities: the Schaal Aquatics Center (2004), the Marya Welch Tennis Center (2005) and the multi-use Aggie Stadium (2007)... During his career, UC Davis won six NACDA Division II Directors’ Cups in a span of eight years, an award presented to the most outstanding overall program in the country.

at the NCAA Championships… The women earned their second team berth in four years after placing eighth at the West Region tournament in Auburn, Wash…. On the men’s side, freshman Matt Hansen captured the Southwest Region individual title to advance to the national tourney… Finally, the men’s and women’s track and field teams sent 15 athletes to the West Prelims at Oregon, with hurdlers Thomas Phillips and Alex Wilright advancing to the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa... In all, UC Davis scored 106.5 points toward the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup.

• UC Davis athletics also issued its annual student-athlete awards on the same night as the CAAHOF inductions... Linda Hermann (swimming & diving) won the W.P. Lindley Award as scholar-athlete of the year... Paige Mintun (basketball) captured the Hubert Heitman Award as the top female athlete of the year, while Jonathan Peterson (cross country) claimed the Colby E. “Babe” Slater Award as the outstanding male athlete of the year... Men’s soccer and women’s gymnastics won the Lysle Leach Award and Marya Welch Award, respectively, for posting the highest team grade-point averages.

• Nine UC Davis teams were represented in the NCAA postseason, including five that reached the national finals… Both men’s and women’s cross country teams competed at the West Regional in Eugene, Ore., with Jonathan Peterson earning an atlarge spot at the NCAA Championship (where he placed 14th)… During the winter, women’s gymnastics (Anna Shumaker and Marcy Miller) and women’s swimming (Liliana Alvarez) each sent individual qualifiers to their respective NCAA meets, while the women’s basketball team earned its first ticket to the “Big Dance,” where it took on Stanford in televised action… In the spring, both men’s and women’s golf teams had representation

• Two UC Davis alumni reached the highest levels of professional sports during the 2010-11 academic year... Daniel Descalso, a 2007 ABCA All-West Region selection, made his Major League Baseball debut with the St. Louis Cardinals in September... The following spring, he made the big club’s 25-man Opening Day roster... Descalso is the second UC Davis graduate to play in the major leagues, joining former California Angels pitcher Steve Brown (1983-84)... In December, Scott Gordon became the first Aggie to qualify for the PGA Tour after firing a nineunder par at Q-school in Winter Park, Florida... Gordon, who has qualified for the Nationwide Tour in 2008 and 2010, also earned his induction into the CAAHOF (see above).

WAYNE TILCOCK

Two-time All-American Scott Gordon, shown here during his UC Davis career from 2001-04, became the first Aggie to earn his PGA Tour card. Gordon, who also entered the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame this spring, shot a 9-under-par 420 in the final stage of Q-school in Winter Park, Fla. in December.

Bruce Edwards (right), chatting with head football coach Bob Biggs in the Aggie Stadium club room that bears his name, pledged $2 million to help develop the multi-use facility -- the single largest philanthropic contribution in UC Davis Athletics history.

Women’s basketball coach Sandy Simpson retired after 14 years and more than 250 wins with the Aggie program. As a swan song, UC Davis posted a 24-9 record and earned its first trip to the NCAA Tournament by virtue of its Big West Conference tournament title.

• Sandy Simpson, who won a school-record 251 games as head women’s basketball coach, announced his retirement shortly before the start of the 2010-11 season...
