Providence, RI- Brown University gymnasts Julia Meyer and Katie
Goddard have recently received ECAC gymnastics honors after their
solid performances at meets last weekend. Meyer earned ECAC Rookie
of the Week honors, while Goddard received the ECAC Coaches’
Meyer had an incredible weekend for the Bears, earning personal bests on both bars (9.7) and beam (9.7), the only two events she competes in. She was Brown’s top scorer on both events last weekend and showed great maturity and poise.
Goddard, an extremely determined student-athlete, was uncertain if she would be able to compete this past weekend due to an injury. However, she pulled through for the team in a big way, even though she competed on an event for the first time in her career. Despite never competing on the vault, she learned a 9.9 valued vault this season so she could contribute on an event where the team lacks depth. Goddard earned one of Brown’s top scores with a 9.575. In addition, she continued to be solid on floor, winning the event outright with a 9.625.
The Bears are back in action this weekend when it travels to Alaska Anchorage for meets on Friday and Sunday.
