New Englands: Andover frosh Bukowski dazzles

WOODSTOCK, Conn. — Being a freshman in big competitions is no problem for Andover’s Paige Bukowski.
She proved that again Saturday at the New England Meet at Woodstock Academy when she finished first in the floor exercise with a school-record score of 9.85. She also finished first in the vault with a score of 9.55, which is close to her own school record.
On the floor exercise, Bukowski had scores from the two judges of 9.9 and 9.8. According to Andover coach Jimmy Tomacchio, that’s the first time an Andover gymnast has ever scored a 9.9.
Bukowski competed in the morning session and then had to nervously await the results of the afternoon session. 
In the final floor round of the day, there were scores of 9.80 and 9.75 — not quite good enough to catch the Andover freshman.
The performance in the floor completed quite a week for Bukowski. Just six days earlier, she won the Mass. State All-Around title with a terrific score of 37.725 while also setting a school record while finishing first in the beam with a 9.725 and taking the floor with a 9.5.
Overall, Bukowski, who trains with Brestyan’s in Burlington, had a remarkable season. She missed gymnastics competition for most of her eighth grade year with a back injury and she did not have high expectations to start the year.
Bukowski was the only local gymnast to place Saturday. Host Woodstock Academy won the team championship.
