Yamamura, Shumaker and Ho will battle for NCAA Championship berths
Former Aggie Carolyn Kampf enters her ninth year on the gymnastics coaching staff in 2016-17, now working primarly with the vault squad. In both 2011 and 2013, her efforts were rewarded with MPSF Assistant Coach of the Year co-honors.
In 2014, Kampf's efforts helped the Aggies score four of their 10 highest vault team scores in school history, including a school-record 49.050 in a home quad meet on January 26. That served as one of many highlights in a landmark season that saw UC Davis amass a program-record RQS of 195.260 and earn its first team berth to the NCAA postseason since 1998.
Originally from All-Olympians Gymnastics Center and Palisades Charter High in Los Angeles, Kampf lettered four years at UC Davis, competing primarily on bars and floor in her final two seasons. She enjoyed a career-best meet against Seattle Pacific on a senior, scoring personal highs of 9.775 on bars and 9.850 on floor in the meet.
Kampf, who graduated in 2007 with a psychology degree, also captured MPSF All-Academic honors as a junior and senior. She later earned an M.S. degree in counseling with a specialization in career counseling from Sacramento State in 2010.
In addition to her coaching duties, Kampf served as an academic skills specialist for the Aggie athletics department.
