On the strength of a winning 38.925 all-around score at Seattle Pacific on Friday, UC Davis senior Katie Yamamura has been named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s Gymnast of the Week.

It’s the first time Yamamura has won the award this season, but the 11th time in her spectacular Aggie career.

The Palo Alto native, and reigning MPSF Gymnast of the Year, posted individual wins on both vault and the all-around in the dual against the Falcons, helping UCD score a team total of 194.300. She went 9.800 on vault while matching that score to place second on uneven bars. The Aggies’ winning score ranks sixth in school history and third all-time for a road meet.

Yamamura won the conference’s weekly award six times as a junior in 2012, eventually claiming All-MPSF distinction in all four events plus the all-around. She also was named Gymnast of the Week on four occasions as a freshman.

This marks the fourth time the award has gone to an Aggie this season. Senior Michelle Ho has won twice and junior Anna Shumaker was honored once for UCD, which returns to action on Friday in a 7 p.m. dual meet at Sacramento State.

UCD men’s golf

Two birdies, one on each side of the Greg Norman Course, sparked Aggie Matt Seramin to an even-par 71 on Tuesday as he paced UCD on a windy second day of action at The Prestige at PGA West.

The second round of the tournament, which is co-hosted by UCD and Stanford, was suspended by darkness, but all of the Aggie players finished except Matt Hansen, who was at 4-over. The Aggies finished the day at 24-over as a team and in 11th place.

UCD’s Tyler Raber, a Davis High graduate, was at 2-over and tied for 19th after a 77 on Tuesday, Jonny Baxter had a 79 and was tied for 65th at 10-over and Ben Corfee, from El Macero, carded an 81 and was 19-over and tied for 84th. Hansen, who had a 1-under 70 on Monday, is tied for 30th place.

Teams were scheduled to finish the second round early today, then complete the tournament’s final round.
