UC Irvine senior Zoya Farzaneh was named Big West Conference Defensive Player of the Year to top seven Anteaters named all-conference in women's soccer. Farzaneh, who spent most of her time on defense for a team that allowed 21 goals and a conference-low 68 shots on goal in 17 regular-season games, also scored three goals (two game-winners) with three assists. UCI (11-6, 6-2 in conference), the No. 2 seed in the Big West Conference Tournament that begins with a semifinal clash against UC Riverside on Thursday at 5 p.m. at Cal State Fullerton, was also represented on the first team by three-time honoree Natalia Ledezma and Laura McGrail.

Back in mid-May, Tyler Rios learned his Estancia High baseball team's fate depended on his right arm. This was a week before he even knew whom he was going to pitch against in the wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs. Estancia relied on that same arm of Rios' before in a must-win situation. To keep their hopes of finishing second in the Orange Coast League alive, the Eagles needed to beat the same team twice in as many days. Rios got the first chance on the mound in the final week of the regular season.

Tyler Rios is at the point where he can teach. Yet, the Estancia High senior baseball standout is humble enough to know he is still learning. He knows a great deal about the game and he wants to pass it on. Rios' cousin, Nick Torres, is a freshman who plays shortstop. He's played varsity a few games this season. Rios usually stars as the Eagles' shortstop. "I've been around baseball for only 14 years and I've learned a lot," said Rios, after he helped lead the Eagles to a 7-1 win at Montebello in a CIF Southern Section Division 4 wild-card game Tuesday.

IRVINE - Taylor Sparks has been more explosion than ignition lately for the UC Irvine baseball team's offense. But it was perhaps his least impressive hit of late that proved to be the difference in the Anteaters' 4-3 triumph in 11 innings over visiting Cal State Northridge in the opener of a three-game Big West Conference series at Anteater Ballpark. Sparks, who now has 12 runs batted in in his last five games, lifted a soft single just over the glove of retreating first baseman William Colantono to drive in Connor Spencer with the game-winner.

RIVERSIDE - The UC Irvine baseball team gave new meaning to the term seventh-inning stretch Friday. And, like a rubber band pulled to its limit, the Anteaters' bullpen snapped to help host UC Riverside claim a 7-5 Big West Conference triumph at the Riverside Sports Complex. The win drops UCI, ranked No. 21 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Assn., to 16-7, 0-2 in conference. It's UCI's worst start in conference play since 2006, when it lost its first four and six of its first seven against Big West competition.

RIVERSIDE - UC Irvine ventured to UC Riverside for the Big West Conference baseball opener on Friday and a telethon broke out. How else to describe the spirit of giving that pervaded in the Highlanders' 4-3 victory at the Riverside Sports Complex? Both teams donated costly mistakes to the cause, with UC Riverside getting a jump on things, only to benefit in kind. Ultimately, it was two miscues by the Anteaters - one of which manifested itself in an error that marred the box score for the team that entered the game leading the nation in fielding percentage - that spelled doom for UCI. It was the 'Eaters' first loss in a conference opener since 2006.
