Westford gymnasts Ellie Cioffi and Kaitlyn Murphy recently competed at the state level.
Cioffi, 10, a fourth-grader at Crisafulli Elementary School, and Murphy, 10, a fifth-grader at Abbot Elementary School, are both Level 7 gymnasts coached by Sylvie and Mihai Brestyan at Brestyan Gymnastics.
Cioffi placed second in the state competition in her age group, and ninth in Massachusetts USAG Level 7. She is the state bar champion and was fifth on vault, sixth on the floor and seventh on the beam. This is Cioffi's highest score of her career and the highest score at the Level 7 state meet for the Brestyan team.
Murphy was just behind her teammate, placing eighth statewide in the age group and 46th in Level 7. She was fifth on the bar, sixth on the floor and ninth on the beam. It was also Murphy's highest score of her career.
