March 19, 2008

Providence, RI - Brown gymnast Victoria Zanelli (Katy, TX) was named the ECAC's Rookie of the Week. Zanelli helped the Bears to a second-place finish in a tightly scored meet against Rhode Island, Southern Connecticut and Bridgeport.

Zanelli nailed all of her routines last Friday night at the Pizzitola Sports Center, posting Brown's top score on the floor. She added an E tumbling pass to upgrade her floor routine, which resulted in a three tenth improvement over her previous personal best with a 9.625. In addition, Zanelli earned a personal best in the all-around (37.825), scoring more than half a point better than her career high.

The Bears will host the Yale Bulldogs in their final home meet of the season at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 21. Brown will then head to William & Mary to compete in the ECAC Championships.
