Braintree's Ellis makes it 4-for-4
If you were asked to name the top 5 male athletes in high school sports today, you probably wouldn't name Blake Ellis. But you should. The Braintree senior finished his career as a four-time All-Scholastic, a two-time state champion, and a two-time Globe Gymnast of the Year. In boys' gymnastics, there was Blake Ellis, then everyone else. At this year's state championship he won the vault, parallel bars, high bar, pommel horse, and floor exercise. The only event he didn't win was still rings, and he finished second. Led by Ellis, Braintree won the state title for a second straight year.
