Red Hawks

The Milton gymnastics team broke the school record on the balance beam during the Red Hawks' 136.25-119.275 victory over Reedsburg Tuesday, Jan. 21 in Reedsburg.

For the third straight week, Milton also set a new season high, just eclipsing last week’s score of 136.225.

Milton scored a 36.2 on the balance beam, which beat out last year’s program-setting score of 35.975.

Sophomore Ireland Olstad finished first on the balance beam with a personal-best score of 9.35.

Olstad also recorded a PR in the all-around competition with a score of 34.625, good for first. She placed first on the uneven bars as well with an 8.35.

Sophomore Brooke Girard took first in the floor exercise with a personal best score of 9. She placed second in the all-around with a 33.8.

Senior Caroline Burki finished third in the all-around with a 33.375 — good for a personal best — and was the runner-up on vault with an 8.45.

Olstad, Girard, Burki and freshman Hannah Dunk made up the record-breaking balance beam team for Milton. Junior Josie Hasenstab also competed on the event and scored an 8.

Milton will host Monona Grove in a dual Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 6 p.m.
