LemMon, a junior from Morgan Hill, led the Aggies with three goals and seven points during wins against LaSalle University and Bryant University at Aggie Stadium.

Garcia, a freshman from Fallbrook, has made her presence felt early on in her UC Davis career, assisting on Nadia Namdari's goal in the 49th minute against La Salle and then finding Casey Wollbrinck in the 53rd minute during Saturday's win over the Bulldogs.
LemMon's four goals through UC Davis' first four games led the team while Garcia's three total assists were also a team-high.
The Aggies continued their season on Monday, dropping a tough 5-2 game to No. 20 Northwestern in Berkeley and return to action on Wednesday when they face No. 24 Drexel, also at Cal.
