Christine Lacy Named ECAC Athlete of the Week

Feb. 24, 2005

NEW HAVEN, CONN. -- Bulldog Gymnastics captain Christine Lacy garnered Athlete of the Week honors from the ECAC for leading the Yale team to a victory over Bridgewater and Brown on February 20th. Lacy received a 9.625 on the vault to win the event. The same score on the floor exercise was enough to earn her third place.

Lacy is one of three seniors (including Kathryn Fong and Lisa Naito) that have anchored Yale gymnastics from the 2001 season to the present. She set the Eli record on the vault (9.825) as a junior, and won the vault competition at the ECAC Championships as a sophomore. In addition, in 2003-04 she was an ECAC Scholar Athlete and a first team All-ECAC selection.

This weekend Cornell, Brown and Penn will arrive at John J. Lee for the Ivy League Classic. The meet will take place on Saturday at 1:00 pm. Yale most recently captured the Ivy title in 2003, and was also victorious in 2001, when it last hosted the meet.
