Jayne Finst Named ECAC Gymnastics Athlete Of The Week

Jan. 16, 2002

Brown sophomore Jayne Finst (Delray Beach, Florida) took third place on the all-around (37.900) and third place on the beam (9.775) in helping Brown to a 186.000 score in a tri-meet with Arizona and Boise State. Finst also led all Brown gymnasts on the vault with a 9.600, while the team score of 186.000 is the best score ever in a Brown season-opening meet.

The school record holder on the beam (9.925), this is the second time in her career that Finst has received an ECAC weekly honor. The first time to earn the Athlete of the Week award, she was named ECAC Rookie of the Week after her record-setting performance on the beam at last year's Ivy League Classic, breaking both a Brown and an Ivy League record.

The Brown gymnastics team has a 0-2-0 overall record and will compete at Springfield on Sunday, January 20, 2002 in a 1:00 p.m. meet.
