DAVIS, Calif. – Junior Kendra Daniels capped the Alaska Anchorage gymnastics team’s best performance of the season with a school-record 9.9 score on beam Sunday as the Seawolves recorded 192.700 points in a dual-meet loss to UC Davis at The Pavilion.

The host Aggies won the meet with 195.100 points behind a 38.975 all-around from Alexis Brown.

Despite the loss, it was a historic day for the Seawolves, who had nine career-high performances and earned the 14th-best score in program history. The 48.400 beam total tied UAA’s eighth-best all-time despite a pair of falls, while the 48.550 on floor and 48.200 on bars were also season highs and ranked 13th and 17th, respectively, on the program lists.

“Friday night’s performance felt like a low point in our season,” said UAA head coach Paul Stoklos, whose team scored 189.350 in the same gym. “After that, our ladies had a meeting and got refocused on the things they needed to do right, and they really delivered today.”

Senior Nicole Larkin and freshman Mackenzie Miller set the tone early on bars, earning UAA’s best scores of 2017 on that event with matching 9.725s. Junior Madeleine Arbuckle’s 9.7 and freshman Sofie Riley’s 9.625 were also personal bests, with Miller and Riley each scoring at least 0.2 better than their previous highs.

Junior Morgan Ross scored a 9.65 and freshman Kennedy Green added a career-high 9.6 on vault in the second rotation, and the Seawolves got on a roll on floor exercise. Ross scored a 9.85 to narrowly miss her career high and tie the 16th-best effort in program history, while senior Kallie Randolph had a 9.775 and Miller a career-high 9.725.

On beam, the Seawolves got career highs from Randolph (9.8), sophomore Kaylin Mancari (9.775) and Arbuckle (9.7), leading up to Daniels’s record-setting effort in the anchor position.

“I feel like our athletes are really beginning to recognize their potential, both individually and as a team,” said Stoklos, who lost the majority of last year’s lineup to graduation. “Mackenzie is really coming into her own as a freshman, and veterans like Kendra, Nicki (Larkin), Maddy (Arbuckle) and Morgan are all coming up big. Kendra’s beam routines in practice are just awesome and she finally did what she has been training for.”

The Seawolves are off next week before returning to the Alaska Airlines Center for their home finales, Mar. 3 and Mar. 5 against Centenary. Friday’s meet starts at 7 p.m., while Sunday’s action begins at 2 p.m. and will include ‘senior day’ ceremonies.
