March 1, 2007

Providence, RI - After breaking Brown's vault and all-around school records, as well as setting a new Ivy Classic record in the all-around, freshman Alicia Sacramone (Winchester, MA) has earned the ECAC Gymnastics Rookie of the Week.

Sacramone led the Bears on the vault with a first-place finish after recording a 9.875. Her score set a new Brown school record, which was formerly held by Jayne Finst `04 with a 9.775. Sacramone also set a school record, which was previously held by Finst in the all-around, with her 39.250.

History was made, when Sacramone became the first gymnast to place first on every event en route to winning the all-around at the Ivy Classic last weekend. She set a new Ivy Classic record in the all-around and tied the record on vault, earning First Team All-Ivy Classic in everything.

The Bears will take on Yale at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 3.
