GYMNAST OF THE YEAR: OLIVIA O'CONNOR
Bay Shore, Senior
O'Connor competed as a Level 9 (just two steps below elite) gymnast when she was in seventh grade. This year, the William and Mary-bound senior broke the Suffolk record with a 38.425 all-around in the state qualifier. Her Yurchenko half tuck earned a 9.850 in the state tournament, a New York record, and her 9.675 on bars also won her gold. She came in second in the all-around and led Suffolk to a second-place finish in the tournament.(Credit: Joseph D. Sullivan)
