Providence, RI - After four solid performances for the Brown gymnastics team last week, freshman Lilly Siems (Baltimore, MD) has been named the ECAC's Rookie of the Week.
Last week, Siems earned personal bests on three events and the all-around for the Bears, and also stepped up in a big way during Brown's meet against the University of Pennsylvania. Siems hit all four events and led the squad to a season-high 187.300. The day after competing against the Quakers, Siems again competed all-around for Brown and posted the team's highest vault score with a 9.4.
The Bears are back in action on Sunday, when it hosts the Bridgeport Purple Knights at 1:00 p.m. during Breast Cancer Awareness Week.
