Year Inducted:

Lori Pride Entwistle currently resides in South Attleboro, and has a full time job as a homemaker and mother. She is married to Raymond Entwistle M.D., Brown Class of 1979, M.D. Class of 1986. Although she claims the job title of “Mommy” according to sons, Raymond and Brandon, people on the Brown athletic scene remember her best for the 4 fantastic years she performed at the Smith Swimming Center with the Brown Women’s Swim Team; two of those years as captain. In conversation with former Brown Coach Dave Roach (now at Tennessee) he will tell you that Lori was instrumental in turned the Women’s Swimming Program around, helping to bring the program into one of the best in the East and making it competitive nationally. Four years of competition at Brown brought Lori enough victories and honors to set an example for years to come. She established Brown records in the 50, 100, and 200 Backstroke, as well as the 200 and 400 Medley Relays. In addition to the Brown records she also established Ivy League records in the 50 Backstroke, 100 Backstroke, and 200 Backstroke and 400 Medley Relay. At the Ivy meets she won 5 individual Ivy League Titles. It seems superfluous but Lori was All-Ivy for four years. In addition she was also chosen on the All-East for four years. All of these honors were capped off when she was chosen All-American in the 50, 100 and 200 Backstroke. Lori claims that she doesn’t “remember the exact finishes in Ivies, Easterns, and Nationals, that’s what happens after 5 years and 2 kids.” Fortunately Brown remembers all the victories and honors that Lori brought her University.
