Cal friends, family, and alums rally together to mourn the loss of freshman Eloi Vasquez.

Sand Volleyball

Cal's No. 3 pair of senior Inanna Eshoo and freshman Katie Regalia reached the quarterfinals of the Santa Cruz Invitational on Sunday before falling in a three-set match to a team from Santa Clara.


The Utah Utes used a three-run fifth inning to top the No. 14 Golden Bears 3-2 in the series finale on Sunday afternoon. With the loss, Cal moves to 20-7 and 7-2 in Pac-12 play.


Down 3-0 in the final inning, the No. 17 Golden Bears strung together three late hits in the bottom of the seventh and loaded the bases but fell short in the rally to lose 3-1 to Oregon State Sunday afternoon on Levine Fricke Field.


Trailing 9-4, California was within reach of Cornell at halftime on Sunday at Memorial Stadium. The Golden Bears outshot the Big Red, 13-12, in the first 30 minutes, and Cal freshman Meredith Haggerty scored the last goal of the first half with 25 seconds left on the clock. But Cornell took control in the second half, outshooting Cal, 16-4, and the Bears wound up losing, 23-6.

Men's Crew

The Bears' varsity eight raced down the 42nd annual San Diego Crew Classic course on Mission Bay in 5:53.12 to earn the open water victory over second-place Penn (6:03.68) and third-place Stanford (6:04.41).

Women's Crew

No. 4 California women's crew defeated No.2 Virginia in the varsity eight to highlight the second day of the Pac-12 Women's Challenge Sunday morning at Redwood Shores, Calif. The Bears' varsity eight, after earning victories against Oklahoma and Washington State on Saturday, recorded their best time of the weekend with a 6:16.7 to win by a length of open water over Virginia (6:23.7).


Q&A: Cal wide receiver Bryce Treggs

Cal begins its second spring session on Wednesday, with its spring game set for April 18. Rising senior wide receiver Bryce Treggs took a few minutes out of his spring break (he stayed home and worked out) to chat with the Pac-12 blog about his quarterback, his future and his place in a deep and talented wide receiver stable. Last year he was tied for second on the team with 52 catches for 634 yards and six touchdowns.

A lot of guys coming back who can catch the ball. Where do you see yourself fitting into that rotation?

Bryce Treggs: I definitely see myself as a guy that's going to stand out, to break out this year. This will be my fourth year starting and I'm definitely looking to have a big year. And hopefully be one of those top guys who can do whatever it takes to help my team win.

What motivated you to come back for your senior year?

BT: I'm a big academic guy. I graduate in the fall. Everything times out perfectly because I can come back to school, finish my last season, graduate and then go to train wherever and not have to worry about coming back and getting my degree (in legal studies).

Eloi Vasquez

BERKELEY - Today, we learned we have tragically lost a member of the Cal Athletics family, freshman soccer player Eloi Vasquez. A midfielder from San Rafael, Eloi played in 12 games for the Bears last season and contributed to a team that reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA College Cup.

"We are absolutely devastated at this tragic news," Director of Athletics Mike Williams said. "Eloi was a wonderful young man who excelled both athletically and academically and came to Cal with a passion for learning. This is a tremendous loss for our men's soccer program, our athletic department and our whole university community. It is a tragedy that such a promising life was taken so soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eloi's family, friends, teammates and coaches during this difficult time. We want to continue to support each other and our students, and campus community."
