SEATTLE - Senior Anna Shumaker scored a season-best 38.750 in the all-around while junior Lisa Wiktorski matched her uneven bars career best of 9.850 to tie for third place in that event, highlighting UC Davis' 191.850 overall team score in a quadrangular women's gymnastics meet at Alaska Airlines Arena Saturday afternoon.
Arizona State dominated the field with a 195.900, while host Washington (194.825) and San Jose State (194.625) engaged in a tough battle for the second- and third-place spots.
Shumaker's all-around total was good for fourth in the meet, behind Arizona State's Risa Perez at 39.275 and the San Jose State tandem of Cami Guyer and Bekah Gher scored 39.150 and 39.000.
Wiktorski's score, which tied the previous PR she set against San Jose State on March 1 of her sophomore year, put her in a tie for third with Washington's Sheridan Metcalif. Other high individual Aggie finishes belonged to sophomore Stephanie Stamates, who placed seventh on floor at 9.800; and redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki, whose 9.775 was good for ninth on vault.
UC Davis continued to post solid scores on vault, notching a 48.475 in the second rotation. Besides Nogaki, Shumaker and freshman Yonni Michovska each went 9.700. Michovska also put up a 9.750 on uneven bars. The Aggies counted one fall on each of bars, beam and floor for the meet.
