DAVIS, Calif. - Senior Anna Shumaker captured honors on all four events plus the all-around to lead a slate of eight UC Davis student-athletes on the All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women's gymnastics teams, it was announced Saturday evening after the championship meet.

The All-MPSF teams are determined by the regional-qualifying scores through Monday, March 17. The top RQS on each of the six member teams, plus the next six at-large performers, earn such accolades.

Shumaker led the all-arounders with a conference-record 39.175 RQS. She also ranked fourth in the MPSF on vault at 9.810, tied for fourth on uneven bars at 9.820, seventh on beam at 9.785 and fifth on floor exercise at 9.810. Shumaker will finish her career with 12 All-MPSF nods, including four straight on vault.

Junior Kala DeFrancesco enjoyed a breakthrough season by picking up All-MPSF awards on vault, bars and floor. She previously won all-conference on floor as a sophomore.

Sophmores Dani Judal and Stephanie Stamates won honors in two events each. Judal ranks second in the conference on bars (9.830) and beam (9.835), having tied the UC Davis record in the latter earlier this season. Stamates, the top MPSF performer on floor exercise with a 9.870 RQS, added an award on beam. These were the first all-conference awards for Judal while Stamates rated as the MPSF's No. 2 floor performer in 2013.

Redshirt freshman Katy Nogaki (vault), junior Lisa Wiktorski (bars), senior Regi Solvkjar (beam) and junior Tiana Montell (beam) each appeared on one squad. Nogaki, who tied the school record of 9.900 this season, ranked eighth in the conference. Wiktorski picked up her second consecutive All-MPSF award on bars, leading the league with a 9.840 RQS.

 

 

Solvkjar had only appeared in the beam lineup three times entering the 2014 season, but her eighth-ranked 9.780 average garnered her first All-MPSF award. Montell grabbed the last at-large spot on beam with her 9.765 RQS. She previously earned all-conference accolades in 2012 (all-around) and 2013 (vault, beam).

Shumaker and San Jose State's Cami Guyer were the only honorees to appear on all five All-MPSF teams. Spartan Julia Greer captured MPSF Gymnast of the Year honors, Sac State redshirt freshman Jesse Williams was selected as Newcomer of the Year, veteran Hornet coach Randy Solorio garnered Assistant Coach of the Year, and eighth-year Air Force mentor Doug Day took home Coach of the Year accolades.

UC Davis finished second in Saturday's conference championship with a 194.875 team score. The Aggies will learn their NCAA regional destination during an online selection show on Monday. This is the first time since 1998 that UC Davis has qualified for the NCAA postseason as an entire team.
