Five UC Davis gymnasts — Taylor Baron, Madeline Kennedy, Kailyn Ono, Cassandra Quebral and Lisa Wiktorski — and the team as a whole captured academic awards when the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches for Women announced its choices this week.

The UCD squad was honored for its 3.1406 combined grade-point average.

This is the third such award for Quebral, a third-year student in exercise biology. Baron, Kennedy, Ono and Wiktorski are first-time honorees, although Kennedy has captured MPSF All-Academic for three straight years. Wiktorski led the Aggie quintet with a 3.71 GPA in human development.

To receive NACGC/W academic distinction, gymnasts must have a yearlong or cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better. Unlike the conference All-Academic awards program, there is no restriction for academic year or participation in meets.

The UCD gymnastics team enjoyed a historic 2014 season, setting a school record for regional-qualifying score and earning a team berth to the NCAA Fayetteville Regional.

Three fall tournaments, nonconference matches against three teams that finished the 2013-14 season with a national ranking and a six-week, eight-match homestand highlight the Aggie schedule, which was announced this week.

UCD’s fall tournament schedule mirrors last year’s as the Aggies will compete at the Cal Invite (Sept. 26-28), ITA Northwest Regional Championships (Oct. 10-14) and Saint Mary’s Invitational (Oct. 24-26). All three events are local as the first two are in Berkeley and Stanford, respectively.

A four-match road swing through three states will mark the start of the UCD’s spring season as it will travel to Tempe, Ariz., to face Arizona State in its inaugural dual of the campaign.

The Sun Devils are one of three nationally ranked teams from last year that will battle the Aggies this season. In addition to ASU, which finished with a No. 32 ranking, UCD also faces Long Beach State (No. 40) and UC Irvine (No. 70).

After heading to Portland State (Jan. 24) and Portland (Jan. 25), the Aggies’ inaugural road trip will conclude against rival Sacramento State (Jan. 30).

Of the 18 head-to-head duals UCD will play in 2015, exactly half will take place on campus at the Marya Welch Tennis Center, starting with the home opener against former Big West Conference foe Pacific (Jan. 31).

UCD then starts league play at Cal State Fullerton on Valentine’s Day, two weeks before a match against Long Beach (Feb. 28) begins a stretch of eight consecutive home outings.

The Aggies’ final tune-up before the postseason is an April 17 contest at Santa Clara. For the 12th straight season, the Big West will host its annual tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in late April.
