Marissa Rosen Wins Ivy Vault Title; Team Finishes Third

ITHACA - Marissa Rosen is two-for-two in Ivy Classic individual titles in her short gymnastics career at Penn. A 9.750 on vault added another championship to the won she claimed on beam in 2007.

As a team, Penn was unable to defend its title from 2007, finishing in third behind champion Cornell and Yale. A positive note for the Quakers is that their team score of 188.025 is the highest this season.
