UC Davis will experience a quick turnaround since its next game, at Sacramento State, will take place on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.

2017: Appeared in 21 games as a reliever and once as a starter... Led the team in relief appearances (20), games finished (14) and saves (2)... She is the only Aggie to record multiple saves in 2017... Her first save of the season came against Utah Valley on February 19 as she recorded a perfect inning to secure the team's 4-3 victory... Just two days later, she picked up her second save against Sacramento State on February 21, taking the mound for two innings of relief in the 4-3 victory over the Causeway rival...Her one start game against UCLA on February 19 in a 2.2 inning appearance at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic I... Her strongest appearance came at California on April 26 in which the sophomore pitched five shutout innings, allowing just three hits with one walk and two strikeouts... tied for fourth in the Big West for games finished (4) and fames in relief (6) in conference play.

2016: Appeared in 21 games; named a starter on two occasions... Led the Big West Conference with three saves... Responsible for all but two of the Aggies' five saves... Earned her first career start at Cal (4/26)... That afternoon, she struck out two batters through five innings and earned a no decision... Threw 2.2 innings in her UC Davis debut, and fanned one batter, vs. Montana (2/12)... Picked up the first of three saves vs. Iowa State (2/25) at the Aggie Invitational I... Her other two saves took place against Hawai'i (4/2, Gm. 2) and Long Beach State (4/9)... Struck out a season-high three batters vs. Long Beach State (4/9) and UC Riverside (4/23, Gm. 1)... Threw a season-high 5.0 innings, in her first collegiate start, in the back half of a doubleheader at Cal (4/26)... Did not allow an earned run and received a no result against the Golden Bears.

CARLMONT HS '15:
 Competed as a left-handed pitcher and outfielder... Spent one season competing for Lady Magic (Sacramento)... That team placed 13th at PGF Nationals.

PERSONAL: Oldest of Ellie and Franco Cadona's two children... Not many people know that she rides a motorcycle... Playing for UC Davis is her proudest personal accomplishment... Throwing 22 innings with one unearned run at PGF Nationals is her career sports highlight... Madison Bumgarner is her sports hero... Helen Keller is her non-sports hero... Will pursue a career as a viticulturist... Cooking and baking are her hobbies... Chose UC Davis for its welcoming and friendly community.
