2016: ALL-MPSF FIRST TEAM on vault for the third straight year, ranking 5th (9.815) entering the conference meet...

Hit 9.8 or higher on beam on seven occasions, peaking with 9.875 in back-to-back meets at Seattle Pacific (Feb. 12) and Southern Utah (Feb. 19)... That score enters a sizable tie for 5th on school beam list.

2015: ALL-MPSF on vault, tying teammate Tiana Montell for conference lead (9.850) heading into conference championships... NCAA QUALIFIER on vault, ranking 15th in West (9.860)... Tied own school record two more times with back-to-back 9.900s in home duals against George Washington (Feb. 8) and Seattle Pacific (Feb. 13)... Added road-best 9.875 at San Jose State (Feb. 20) plus three 9.850s down stretch of regular season... MPSF runner-up on vault with 9.850... Also made beam lineup eight times, floor lineup three times... Scored 9.725 on beam and season-high 9.750 on floor at Sac State (Jan. 23)... Hit season-best 9.800 in NorCal Classic opener (Jan. 4)... Won MPSF Specialist of the Week accolades on Feb. 17 and Mar. 10... Claimed one of team's four Outstanding Contribution Awards... Earned All-Academic from both MPSF and NACGC/W.

2014: ALL-MPSF on vault, compiling 9.780 RQS... Earned MPSF Newcomer of the Week honors on Jan. 28 and Feb. 11... The first was for tying the school vault record of 9.900, joining her in Aggie annals with Katie Yamamura (2011 & 2012), Flora Bare (2003) and Jill Henrie (1993)... Also hit scores of 9.825 at San Jose State (Feb. 7) and at Sacramento State with Alaska Anchorage (Feb. 16)... Earned MPSF All-Academic accolades.
