The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Sophia L. Harrison ’08

Sophia L. Harrison ’08 was named the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Co-Gymnast of the Year on Saturday as MIT placed fifth at the ECAC Championships. In addition, Harrison captured the all-around crown in the competition with a personal best of 38.275. She placed first in uneven bars with a 9.625, and took third on floor with a 9.675

Harrison will join four other MIT gymnasts at the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association Championship, which will be hosted by SUNY Cortland on March 28-29. Sarah N. Trowbridge ’08 set a new career best in qualifying for the all-around competition, along with teammates Zimmerman and Harrison.

The honor marked the second straight year MIT has won this conference honor, as Zimmerman was awarded it last year.
