FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Competing at an NCAA Division I Regional as a team for the first time in program history, the UC Davis women’s gymnastics squad used good performances from sophomore Stephanie Stamates, junior Lisa Wiktorski and senior Anna Shumaker to score a 193.900 and finish fifth at Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville, Ark., on Saturday.

“I can’t describe the feeling of being able to walk into this meet and compete with some of the best teams in the country,” said Aggie head coach John Lavallee. “I’m going to savor this moment for a long time.”

Shumaker concluded her brilliant UCD career by scoring a 9.825 on vault, tying for 12th on the event, and took eighth in the all-around with her 38.550.

Stamates posted team highs of 9.725 on balance beam and 9.850 on floor exercise, while Wiktorski notched a 9.825 to pace the Aggies on the uneven bars. Stamates, who also scored a 9.725 on vault, tied for 12th on the floor.

Additionally, UCD junior Kala DeFrancesco continued her strong finish to the season with a 9.800 on floor, a 9.750 on vault and a 9.700 on bars.

The Aggies opened relatively slowly on the balance beam, but sophomore Dani Judal finished closely behind Stamates with a 9.700 in that event. UCD then exploded on floor — scoring a 48.825 — then kept the momentum with a 48.600 on vault.

Finishing on bars, the Aggies got 9.700s from Shumaker, DeFrancesco, sophomore Jamie Yamashita and freshman Yonni Michovska to put up a 48.625.

UCLA’s Samantha Peszek used a win on that event and a victory on beam (scoring 9.950 on both) to capture the all-around at 39.700.

Utah won the meet at 197.300 with the Bruins taking second and host Arkansas third.

After the contest, UCD’s Tamara Ross was announced as the West Region Assistant Coach of the Year.
