Izzy Kirkham-Lewitt Earns ECAC Coaches Choice Award

March 13, 2008

Providence, RI - Junior Izzy Kirkham-Lewitt (Venica, CA) earned the ECAC Coaches Choice Award after performing one of her best beam routines of her career during Brown's gymnastics meet against Bridgeport last weekend.

Kirkham-Lewitt came through for Brown, as the team found themselves short handed and in a tough situation due to some injuries. She didn't think twice about putting the team first, and stepped up showing great composure to turn in a 9.450 on the beam. Although she has not competed since January, she earned Brown's second highest score on that event.

The Bears are back in action at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, March 14, when they take on Bridgeport, Rhode Island and Southern Connecticut at the Pizzitola Sports Center.
