Ireland Olstad

Sophomore Ireland Olstad helped the Milton/Edgerton gymnastics team to 138.9 at the sectional meet this year, a 5.325 difference from last season’s sectional score.

From the Milton gymnastics team earning a berth to the state meet, to the Milton boys basketball team having its best season in over a decade, the Milton High School winter sports season produced a few standout stats.

Here is a list of the Milton High School winter sports season by the numbers:

5.325 — The difference between the Milton gymnastics team’s sectional score in 2020 versus 2019. The massive 5.325 jump gave the Red Hawks a score of 138.9 at a WIAA Division 1 sectional this year, which was good enough to send Milton to its first state meet in nine years.

7 — The number of 3-pointers junior Sam Burdette made in the first half of Milton’s 76-70 win over Watertown on Feb. 18. Burdette ended with nine made 3-pointers in the game on his way to a 32-point performance.

6 — The amount of times senior Abbie Campion scored 20 points or more for the girls basketball team.

Campion’s 27-point season high came in a loss to Sauk Prairie. She finished the year averaging 14.3 points per game.

55.6 — The time (seconds) of sophomore Ryker Bailey’s 100-yard butterfly at Milton’s WIAA Division 1 sectional meet in February.

The time was good for a fourth-place finish in the event, the highest placement of any Milton swimmer at the meet. He also took eighth in the 50-yard freestyle.

70-15 — The combined wrestling record of brothers Riley and Royce Nilo.

Riley, a sophomore, went 42-6 on the season as he qualified for the state meet at 106 pounds. As a freshman, Royce qualified for the state meet at 120 pounds with a 28-9 mark.

11 — Sophomore Mitchell Masters’ point total against Kenosha (hockey).

Masters scored five goals and added on six assists in Milton’s 15-2 win over Kenosha.
