Brown’s Vicki Zanelli and Carli Wiesenfeld Honored by ECAC

Providence, RI- Brown’s Vicki Zanelli and Carli Wiesenfeld received ECAC Gymnastics honors after stellar performances at the Ivy Classic last weekend. Zanelli received “Specialist of the Week” honors while Wiesenfeld earned the “Coach’s Choice” award.

Zanelli earned a personal best when it counted most for the Bears this past weekend. Having been unable to train for the past two weeks due to several stitches on the bottom of her foot, she decided to tough it out and train two days before the Ivy Classic so she could help her team. She put together an incredible performance, earning a personal best and winning her event at the meet, becoming the Ivy Classic beam champion with her 9.775!

Wiesenfeld had the best meet of her career for the Bears at the Ivy Classic. She was not slated to compete on the beam for Brown on Sunday afternoon, but she stepped in last minute and entered the all-around. Wiesenfeld earned personal bests in the all-around, on vault, and on beam, shattering her previous personal bests. She earned second place in the all-around (38.225), third on the vault (9.675) and fourth on beam (9.675). Coming through for the Bears, she helped her team take second place in an extremely tight competition, as well as earning a season-high team total.

The Bears are back in action on Saturday, March 20 when it travels to Towson.
