September 18, 2017

Aren Johnson - Cross Country

Junior Aren Johnson finished in first place among all runners at Saturday’s University of San Diego Invitational. Johnson crossed the line in 25-minutes, 20-seconds, which was a full 16 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. The area product (Army and Navy Academy) lifted the Tritons to a second-place showing out of five teams in the event, behind only No. 2-ranked Stanford and ahead of host USD, Southwestern College and San Diego Christian. Johnson earned All-CCAA honors as a sophomore in 2016.

Jordyn McNutt - Soccer

Senior winger and team tri-captain Jordyn McNutt led No. 19 UC San Diego to a sweep of the first weekend of the CCAA season at home. The San Diego native out of University City High School assisted on the final goal of a 3-0 victory over Chico State on Friday night. McNutt then scored the only goal of the game, her first of the year, in the 28th minute of Sunday's 1-0 triumph over Stanislaus State. She now has 16 career goals and 31 assists, fifth all-time in program history. Her Tritons return home on Friday, Sept. 29.

Uly de la Cal - Soccer

Uly de la Cal had a goal and two assists as UCSD went 1-0-1 against West Region foes. The senior forward's first goal of the season was the overtime winner in a 2-1 victory at Azusa Pacific on Thursday. He had assisted on UCSD's early opener. On Saturday night, his long throw-in was headed in by Nolan Mac at 87:06 to bring the Tritons within one of Concordia Irvine. Just 30 seconds later, they had equalized from the penalty spot, with the match ending 2-2 to extend UCSD's home unbeaten streak to 18 matches.

Amanda Colla - Volleyball

Amanda Colla was again named to an all-tournament team, this time at the D2 West Region Showcase at Central Washington. As her Tritons went 3-1, the senior outside hitter averaged 4.0 points, 3.5 kills and 4.2 digs and recorded four double-doubles. Her point and kill averages were team-highs. Colla registered a career-high 22.0 points vs. Concordia (Ore.) and equaled career-bests with a match-high 19 kills and five blocks. Against Dixie State, Colla led all players with 16 points, 12 kills, 16 digs and three aces.

Pedro Enciso - Soccer

Pedro Enciso began his college career with a pair of individual shutouts as UC San Diego drew at Biola and topped Occidental at home, 3-0. The Tritons outshot the host Eagles on Thursday, 29-9, but Biola had arguably the three best chances to score on the night, with Enciso thwarting two of those in the first half. The Vista product out of Rancho Buena Vista High School finished with three saves, and added two on Saturday, keeping the opposition scoreless over the full 200 minutes. UCSD is back at home this Saturday at 7 p.m.

Amanda Colla was named to the Seaside Invitational All-Tournament Team at Point Loma for leading UCSD to a 3-1 start.

She put away 18 kills - one short of her best - against the Seawolves and again in a win vs. Simon Fraser, both match-highs. Colla's 13 digs against APU and 15 against Point Loma led all players.
