UC Davis defeated Nevada 297-303 at the UC Davis-Nevada Challenge on Friday at Red Hawk Golf Course in Sparks, Nev.
The event, which was the Aggies’ first dual of the year, was added to the schedule to make up for play missed earlier this year due to bad weather. Each team was allowed five scoring players with any additional individuals not scored.
UC Davis senior Kimberly Johnson took home first place with a score of even-par.
Junior Chelsea Stelzmiller finished just one stroke behind Johnson at 1-over and tied for second with both Jamie Yam and Lauren Hernandez [cq] of the Wolf Pack.
Freshman Amy Simanton shot a score of 3-over and tied for fifth with senior Brittany Smith, one of UC Davis’ non-scoring golfers.
UC Davis had eight of the top-12 finishers at Red Hawk.
The Aggies will play again on Sunday at the Big West Conference Championships.
