Two DEFY gymnasts are all-around champs

WATERVILLE — Gymnasts Kajsa Brown Morrison and Ellie Kane of the Down East Family YMCA turned in all-around championship performances at last weekend’s YMCA state competition at the Alfond Youth Center.

The two girls were among 32 DEFY entrants and nearly 300 gymnasts from eight teams who competed at levels 2-9 and in three Excel divisions.

Kajsa placed first on the balance beam and in floor exercises and second on the vault and uneven bars to place first all-around at Level 4 for ages 11 and over.

Ellie was first on the vault and in floor exercises and third on the uneven bars and balance beam to win first all-around at Level 3, age 9.

Five other DEFY gymnasts also won individual championships in specific events, and the Level 3, 4 and Excel Gold DEFY teams each placed third.
