Sobuta and Sacramone Earn ECAC Gymnastics Honors

Feb. 21, 2007

Providence, RI - Sophomore Jennifer Sobuta (Maynard, MA) and freshman Alicia Sacramone (Winchester, MA) both earned ECAC Gymnastics honors after stellar performances leading to a Brown victory over Bridgeport last weekend. Sobuta was named the ECAC Gymnast of the Week, while Sacramone earned Rookie of the Week honors.

Sobuta has been a strong competitor for the Bears all season, and has stepped it up to produce some huge scores for Brown. Although she only competed in one event last season, she now competes in the all-around and has recently hit career highs on bars (9.25), beam (9.8) and in the all-around (37.85).

Sacramone turned in tremendous scores against the Purple Knights, as she posted personal bests in the all-around and on the floor. She earned four first-place finishes, while guiding Brown to a season high score of a 186.125. She posted a 9.75 on the bars, a 9.85 on the beam, and a 38.75 in the all-around against Bridgeport.

Brown is back in action on Sunday, Feb. 25, at the Ivy Classic at UPenn, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
