SACRAMENTO — UC Davis sophomore Stephanie Stamates shared the individual win on floor exercise with a 9.850 while the Aggie gymnastics team posted an all-time high score for a season opener with its 193.450. UCD finished fourth at the five-team NorCal Preview in front of 924 fans at Sacramento State’s Hornets’ Nest on Sunday.

Stanford won the meet with a 194.825, followed by Cal (194.650) and Sac State (194.400). San Jose State was fifth with its 193.325.

Stamates matched the scores of Golden Bear Alicia Asturias, Spartan Julia Greer and Taylor Rice of the Cardinal at the top of the floor standings. Asturias also tied for the beam win at 9.850 and captured the all-around title with a 39.175. For her part, Stamates also led UCD on vault with a 9.725 and added a 9.675 on beam.

The Aggies went over 48 in every event, opening with a 48.625 on floor, thanks to a 9.750 from junior Kala DeFrancesco and Stamates’ high score in the anchor spot. The UCD vault crew went 48.100 as senior Anna Shumaker closed the rotation with a 9.700.

The local uneven bars contingent scored 48.425, using a 9.800 from sophomore Dani Judal and a 9.700 by junior Lisa Wiktorski. Then, Aggie junior Tiana Montell and senior Madeline Kennedy opened with back-to-back 9.775s to pace the beam squad to a 48.300.

UCD had several notable career debuts at the meet — Taylor Baron scored a 9.825 in the beam exhibition while competing on floor for the first time since her junior year in high school. Katy Nogaki, competing in her first meet in two years after being sidelined by a knee injury, hit a 9.625 on vault and Yonni Michovska, the lone Aggie true freshman in the meet, hit a 9.625 on bars.

Next up for UCD is its home opener on Jan. 13. The Aggies host Alaska Anchorage at 7 p.m. in a rare Monday night meet at The Pavilion.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season, which begins Sunday. The Starlets offer an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning on Sunday, the Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

For more information, email fivestarzvolleyball@gmail.com.

A new Challenger Division for special-needs players has been added.
