Lombardi Earns ECAC Weekly Coaches Award

Feb. 8, 2006

The ECAC awarded Bulldog sophomore Laura Lombardi its weekly Coaches Award following the gymnast's performance at last week's Fox Run Invitational at the University of New Hampshire.

After an injury sidelined her for the 2004-05 campaign, Lombardi made great strides in rehab. Lombardi's injury also forced her to learn a new balance beam dismount. The Battle Creek, Mich., native put her new dismount on display at New Hampshire, posting a 9.575 on the beam.

Lombardi and the Bulldogs return to action on Saturday, when they visit State College, Pa., to face Penn State, Nebraska and Rutgers.
