SACRAMENTO— Senior Marcy Miller became the sixth Aggie in school history to break the 39-point barrier in the all-around, and the vault squad hit a school-record 48.925 in a colleagiate triangular gymnastics meet Sunday at the Hornets’ Nest.

UC Davis’ 194.175 points were its highest of the season.

No. 13 Boise State won the meet with a 197.050 while host Sacramento State finished second at 195.075. Both scores are season bests for those teams. In fact, the Hornets had not cracked the 193-point plateau in 2011.

Miller opened with a 9.700 on balance beam, tied Erika Van Dyke for the team high with a 9.800 on floor, then posted a 9.725 on vault and 9.775 on uneven bars for a 39.0 total. Senior Stacey Nicolini also earned a career high in the all-around, hitting 9.825 on vault and 9.775 on bars in the second half of the meet.

Sophomore Katie Yamamura led the Aggie charge on vault, scoring a fourth-place 9.850. Freshman Anna Shumaker anchored the lineup with a 9.800. Senior Michele Hurlock and freshman Madeline Kennedy matched Miller’s 9.725 in the first two slots.

Boise State won all four events plus the all-around. Amy Glass, an alumna of the Davis Gymnastics Club, tied teammate Hannah Redmon for the all-around title at 39.500. She also shared the beam win with Sacramento State’s Lissa Zamolo at 9.850.

Redmon won the uneven bars with a 9.925 score and finished second on vault to Bronco Hailey Gaspar, who turned in a 9.925. Kelsey Black was the floor champion at 9.925, edging Glass and Redmon’s 9.900 scores.

Top UCD place-winners included Yamamura, who tied for fourth on vault, and senior Jessica Rea, who finished in a tie for fifth on bars at 9.825. Miller and Nicolini were third and fourth in the all-around, respectively, behind the Bronco tandem of Glass and Redmon.

The Aggies finish their season at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships, hosted by the U.S. Air Force Academy on Saturday.
