Seventh-Grade Gymnast Finishes Fifth in State


Cassie Bergin, a star on the varsity gymnastics team, represented East Islip and Section XI at the New York State Gymnastic Championships in Albany on Feb. 27.

Bergin, a seventh-grader at the middle school, was granted All-County and All-State honors last November. As a member of the Section XI state team, she competed against the top gymnasts from across New York State. With an outstanding balance beam routine, she placed fifth out of 60, and Section XI placed second as a team.
