FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JULY 10, 2013 –

West Sacramento’s Chris Salazar graduated this spring from UC Davis with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering — with honors. The 22-year old earned a full academic ride in the school’s master’s program in structural engineering.

His path to UCD took him from River City High School, through Sacramento City College.

Brother Guillermo, 18, has taken a different path to the same school. The three time Little League all-star and graduate of Rio Americano wasn’t initially accepted to UC Davis as a college freshman. But his pitching and hitting caught the attention of the university’s baseball coaches — and that, along with his academic record, earned him a spot among the Division I Aggies.

Guillermo Salazar will be an undergrad at UC Davis this year as his brother, Chris, enters the same school’s master’s degree program. This year’s UCD baseball team press guide will feature Guillermo Salazar and a listing of his hometown — West Sacramento.
