Kirkham-Lewitt Earns ECAC Coaches Choice Honors

March 8, 2007

Providence, RI - Brown freshman Izzy Kirkham-Lewitt (Venice, CA) was recently awarded ECAC Gymnastics Coaches Choice honors after another stellar performance against Yale last weekend.

Competing for just one year as a Level 10 gymnast, Kirkham-Lewitt has stepped in and made an immediate impact on Bears' squad. Since only seven gymnasts are competing, Brown has had to count on Kirkham-Lewitt to compete all-around in every meet.

Last weekend at Yale, she came through for the Bears, as she hit a personal best on the beam with a 9.65, helping Brown sweep that event at the meet. She also scored a very respectable 37.075 in the all-around.

The Bears are back in action at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 against Southern Connecticut, as well as the following Sunday, March 18 against UPenn and Southern Connecticut.
