Time to free up that weekend schedule of yours, boys and girls. You have a lot of Aggie athletics to watch.
Twelve UC Davis sporting events are on the slate for this weekend, each of which will be played at home. Yes, this is really, really unusual. Probably some kind of a record, too.
The madness begins today at 1:30 p.m. when the softball team welcomes Cal State Fullerton to LaRue Field. Some 30 minutes later you’ll have to be in two places at once, as the men’s and women’s tennis teams take on rival Sacramento State at 2 p.m. Then you can head over to Dobbins Stadium for some baseball at 2:30 p.m. Then it’s back to LaRue Field for the second game of the softball doubleheader at 3:30 p.m.
Then you can sleep. For a little bit.
Saturday begins with an early-morning wake-up call from the Port of Sacramento, as the rowing team hosts No. 5 California. A start time hasn’t been announced yet, but the team usually hits the water around 9 a.m. It’ll be back to campus after the race, where you’ll have to split time between watching women’s water polo host Pacific and softball wrap up its series against Cal State Fullerton. Both contests begin at noon.
Shortly thereafter, it’s back to Dobbins – and the Marya Welch Tennis Center. The baseball and men’s tennis teams both begin play at 1 p.m. They’ll face UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly, respectively. Meanwhile, the men’s and women’s track and field teams will be competing in the Woody Wilson Open from 9 a.m. until around 4:30 p.m., so you’ll have to find time to stop by Toomey Field at some point, too.
On Sunday, it’ll be time to take a victory lap. The lacrosse team closes out the hectic weekend of UC Davis sports by welcoming Denver to Aggie Stadium at noon.
If you somehow manage to attend all 12 of these home sporting events, you, my friends, are insane. Good insane, but insane nonetheless.
Be sure to drop me a line if you see each stage of this 12-part circus – and can prove it – so I can tell everyone how cool you are in Monday’s paper.
