COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Air Force freshman gymnast Erin Brown was named to the Mountain West Conference Scholar-Athlete team, the league announced this afternoon (June 30). Brown, a native of Brighton, Mich., posted a 3.56 GPA in biochemistry. She is the fourth member of the women's gymnastics team to earn the MWC Scholar-Athlete Award.
During her first year with the Falcons, Brown became a significant part of the Falcons' rotation, competing on the balance beam in 12 of 13 meets, while participating on the floor exercise in the final seven competitions. Brown posted a career-best 9.675 on the balance beam at Denver, tying for the third-highest score on the team during the season. She earned a season-best score of 9.475 on the floor exercise at the MPSF Championships and a personal-high mark of 9.425 on the uneven bars against the Pioneers.
