Former Aggie Carolyn Kampf enters her eighth year on the gymnastics coaching staff in 2015-16, and her second as the program’s recruiting coordinator. She works 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.

A year later, the Aggie vaulters outdid themselves under her tutelage, delivering seven of the top eight scores in program annals, including a conference-record 49.250 against Washington on March 13. UC Davis surpassed the 49-point barrier five times in 2015, a feat done only once prior to that season. Kampf's floor squad also set a school record of 49.450 in that dual with the Huskies.

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.
