Bryan 3rd in all-around to lead UAA gymnasts

Its lineup depleted by injury and illness, the UAA gymnastics team enjoyed some strong individual performances but lost at home for the first time this season Sunday.

UC Davis beat the Seawolves 194.675 to 190.225 in a dual meet at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.

Sophomore Stefany Bryan posted a career-best score of 38.475 to finish third in the all-around, freshman Julia York registered a personal-best 9.675 to earn second place in vault and freshman Kallie Randolph scored the team's highest score of the season in floor, 9.725, to grab second place in that event.

"Our team has really been affected by injuries and sickness lately, so under the circumstances, I'm very proud of the effort and our final score today," UAA coach Paul Stoklos said in a press release.

UAA's top two all-arounders were limited by injuries -- Morgan Cook competed in two events and M'rcy Matsunami in one. The Seawolves were also missing vault and bars specialist Marie-Sophie Boggasch, who was sick.

Bryan placed third in the all-around, which was won by Anna Shumaker of UC-Davis with 39.125 points. Shumaker won the vault with a 9.775 and three others took individual titles for UC-Davis -- Kale DeFrancesco in bars (9.8) , Tiana Montell in balance beam (9.825) and Stephanie Stamates in floor (9.875).

As a team, the Seawolves produced their best scores this season on bars (47.675) and beam (47.575).
