A big night for junior Tiana Montell helped the UC Davis women’s gymnastics team win its home opener on Monday at The Pavilion.

Montell captured first place in two events — including floor exercise where she posted a career-high 9.750 — to send the Aggies past Alaska Anchorage, 191.275-188.275, in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation dual meet.

With the result, UCD improved its dual record to 2-3, while the Seawolves slipped to 0-2.

Montell got her other win with a 9.725 on the balance beam, after opening the meet with a 9.725 on vault. Aggie senior Anna Shumaker — who took first place in the all-around at 38.050 — won vault with a 9.775 to pace UCD to a 48.325 in the first rotation.

Shumaker then tied teammate Yonni Michovska for the meet title on bars at 9.625.

However, the Aggies counted two falls on uneven bars to slip to a 47.025 in the second rotation, and turned in two misses down the stretch on beam to score a 47.775. Montell’s personal record on floor led a 48.150 score in the last rotation.

Other UCD highlights came from redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki, who delivered a 9.750 on vault; sophomore Stephanie Stamates, who went 9.700 on beam; and senior Madeline Kennedy, who hit 9.675 on beam 9.625 on floor.

The Aggies return to action on Saturday at Washington in a quad meet with Arizona State and San Jose State. The event will provide the team with its first look at Alaska Airlines Arena, the site of the 2014 West Regional.
