Coach Jean Welch thought her Janesville Craig girls gymnastics team did an all-around good job in its Big Eight opener against defending champion Middleton.

And the scoring summary proved her right.

Middleton squeezed out a 136.2-133.325 victory Thursday night, but not without Nicole Buggs and Katharine Cullen giving Craig High two of the top three all-round individual performers.

Middleton’s Tessa Pulvermacher, who won on the vault and uneven bars, took all-around honors with a 36.25. Buggs and Cullen followed with 33.275 and 33.175, respectively.

Allisyn Hall gave the visiting Cougars a first in floor exercise with an 8.9.

“All-round we did a nice job and improved on our score from last Saturday,’’ Welch said. “So we’re headed in the right direction.’’
