DAVIS, Calif. - A strong start to UC Davis' spring season will continue this week when it heads to Fairfax, Calif., for the Meadow Club Women's Collegiate. Competing in its second tournament in as many weeks, the Aggies will enjoy a luxury this event presents: a local event.

Co-hosted by San Francisco and San José State at the Meadow Club, Monday's schedule will begin at 8:15 a.m., and feature 36 holes, before concluding the following day with the final 18 holes.

Formerly known as the Bay Area Collegiate, this is the fourth Meadow Club Women's Collegiate, a tournament featured on the Aggies' schedule annually. The team's highest finish at the Collegiate took place in 2015 when it finished third. And with the way women's golf is playing this spring, the team is ready for another solid finish.

During the first two spring events, UC Davis won the Battle at the Rock (its spring opener), and followed those individual and team titles at that tournament two weeks later at the Westbrook Invitational with an 11th place finish among a stacked field.

The Meadow Club Women's Collegiate is the latest opportunity for one Aggies to extend a personal streak, which ultimately led to Big West Golfer of the Month honors last Thursday. Junior sociology major Samantha Hutchison recorded par or under in each of her six rounds played this spring, highlighted by her 68 at the Westbrook, the third sub-70 score recorded within 16 days and career-best round.

Also enjoying career-best performances in recent weeks is freshman psychology major Hannah Sun. From one round to the next at the Westbrook, she shaved five shots off her previous round's score. In the third round of that tournament, she posted a 69, which now stands as her best round as an Aggie.

The Meadow Club Women's Collegiate is the third of four tournaments leading up to mid-April's Big West Championship. Once UC Davis returns home from Fairfax, it will enjoy a Finals Week hiatus before returning to action on March 27.

Also making the trip to Marin County this week are Boston College, ranked No. 143 in Golfstat's recent national listing, Brigham Young (46), California (53), Cal Poly (96), Colorado (19), Gonzaga (211), Idaho (83), Illinois (22), Michigan (66), Minnesota (110), Oregon State (71), San Francisco (98), San José State (61), Washington (15) and Washington State (68).

Entering the week, only two spots separate UC Davis (81) and Long Beach State (79), the league's top teams.

Providing a small-town community feel while providing a world-class academic experience, UC Davis is home to more than 37,000 students and centrally located between San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and the Napa Valley.

The No. 6-ranked public university in the nation, according to the Wall Street Journal, offers nearly 100 graduate programs and more than 100 academic majors across four colleges and six professional schools, ranking among the world and nation's best in numerous disciplines, including veterinary science, agriculture, and plant and animal programs.
