Shenberger Earns ECAC Rookie of the Week Honors

ECAC Release

PHILADELPHIA – Elyse Shenberger competed in her first-ever collegiate meet as an all-around gymnast at West Chester on Feb. 8. The freshman posted three career-highs and was named ECAC Division I Rookie of the Week.

Shenberger was dominant in her first all-around competition. The Hummelstown, Pa. native scored career-highs on bars (9.750 – second place), floor (9.725 – third place) and the all-around (38.675), leading Penn to a 191.625-187.750 victory over the Golden Rams. Her all-around score was good enough for first place – she also added a 9.525 on vault for sixth and a 9.675 on beam which tied for second.

This is Shenberger’s second such award on the season, having won the Co-Rookie of the Week Award on Jan. 27 after helping the Red and Blue to a dual win over Yale.

Penn will be back in action on Feb. 17 when it welcomes Bridgeport to the Palestra on Senior Day at 1 p.m.
