On July 25, 2015. Baumann competed at the Secret U.S. Classic and finished 6th in the all-around with a score of 56.950, behind Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Maggie Nichols, Bailie Key, and Aly Raisman and ahead of Mykayla Skinner. She started on beam where she fell on her switch ring leap, scoring a 13.750 and finishing 10th on the event, 0.1 behind WOGA teammate Madison Kocian. She scored a 14.150 on floor, finishing 6th and a 14.500 on vault following a low, under-rotated double-twisting Yurchenko.

On August 13 & 15, Baumann competed at the 2015 P&G Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana and placed 7th in the All-Around with a 2-night total score of 115.700, tying with Mykayla Skinner.

On Night 1, Baumann started on beam where she had great difficulty that included a stuck standing Arabian and an Onodi connected to a wolf jump and scored a 15.150, the highest beam score of that night. On floor, she had a sub-par performance that included a wobble on her Memmel (double Y-turn). She scored a 13.900. She under-rotated her double-twisting Yurchenko and scored a 14.300. She ended on bars and had a good executed routine and scored a 14.500. At the end of the night she was 6th in the all-around with a score of 57.850.

On Night 2, Baumann started on floor. She stumbled out of her double turn with her leg at horizontal and missed a connection (she connects it to a single Y-turn). She scored a low 13.700 with a 5.7 start value (compared to 5.9 on Night 1). Her total of 27.600 placed her 9th on the event. On vault, she had a better landing on her double-twisting Yurchenko (with a small hop backwards) and scored a 15.050. On bars, she had trouble on her Pak Salto transition and slightly came in contact with the floor (her left foot swept the ground) and scored a 14.050, totaling to 28.550 and placing 10th on the event. She ended her night on beam where she performed well despite a wobble on her Onodi wolf jump connection. She scored a 15.050 and had a 2-night total of 30.200, placing 2nd on the event behind Biles and ahead of Kyla Ross.

Baumann's commitment to the University of Florida's gymnastics program took a consequent effect as she announced that she would be deferring until the 2017–18 academic year to concentrate on rehab.
