March 22, 2007

Providence, RI - For the fourth consecutive week, freshman Alicia Sacramone (Winchester, MA) has scored a 39 or better in the all-around competition, and has set school records on the vault, floor and in the all-around.

Last week during Brown's final home meet of the year, Sacramone helped lead the Bears to a second-place finish (187.925) against UPenn and Southern Connecticut. Sacramone not only earned first place in every event, but also set three new school records.

On the vault, Sacramone beat her previous record of a 9.875 after receiving a 9.900, and her 9.925 on the floor defeated four other former Brown gymnasts who previously owned the record at 9.900. She also broke her previous all-around school record, after earning a 39.425.

Brown will compete in the ECAC tournament held at Cornell on Saturday, March 31, at 12 p.m.
