Even though she’s a Shumaker, this UC Davis junior does some of her best work in bare feet.

Anna Shumaker paced three Aggie gymnasts who competed as individuals at Saturday’s NCAA Corvallis Regional. In addition to scoring a 38.825 to take 12th in the all-around, the Greiner Athlete of the Week was the top UCD finisher in any single event when she tied for 17th on the balance beam.

In the second NCAA regional appearance of her career — Shumaker made it in 2011 before missing 2012 with an injury — the Aggie standout from Alameda matched her 9.800 beam score with another 9.800 on vault.

Shumaker, a seven-time All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honoree, added a 9.600 on floor Saturday.
