Regional digest: Sacramento State golfers move onto top-10 list

The Sacramento State’s men’s golf team and sophomore Aaron Beverly moved onto the school’s all-time top-10 list with their showing at the Del Walker Intercollegiate on Tuesday at Virginia Country Club in Long Beach.

The Hornets shot 278 as a team to tie for the second-lowest round of the day, the school reported on its website. The total was also tied for the fifth-best in school history and was four strokes off the all-time best. Beverly set his career 54-hole low (210), tying him for the eighth-best in the Hornet record book. He started Tuesday by bogeying two of his first three holes before getting into rhythm. He was 2 under par through his final 17 holes with 15 pars and birdies on the par-4 sixth and par-5 18th.

Sophomore Taylor Knoll tied for the team lead in the third round with a 1-under 69. Knoll tied for eighth overall at 72-70-69–211, which set his 54-hole low with the Hornets. Knoll’s third-round score was also tied for the third-best of his Sacramento State career. Knoll started with five pars and made the turn at 2 under with birdies on the sixth and par-4 eighth. His lone bogey came on the par-3 10th and was followed by eight consecutive pars.

Aggies fall to Nevada – UC Davis scored two runs each in the sixth and eighth innings to close to within a run, but the Aggies came up short as No. 29 Nevada held on for a 7-6 baseball victory, the Aggies reported.

The loss dropped UC Davis to 8-5-1, while the Wolf Pack improved to 11-1 – winning for the sixth time in the last seven meetings with the Aggies in Reno.

Sac State loses – Freshman PJ Floyd tripled in two runs in the ninth inning for his first career hit and RBIs, but it wasn’t enough as host Fresno State built an early lead to top Sacramento State 6-2, the Hornets reported.
