— Milton High earned fifth-place finish in the WIAA State Team Gymnastics meet Saturday.

Sophomore Carleigh Felstead led the Red Hawks to an overall score of 136.0833. Whitefish Bay earned the team title with a score of 141.7667.


“We had just one senior, but we looked like a pretty experienced team out there,” Milton coach Kristine Farnsworth said. “Finishing fifth was one of our goals and we did it.’’


The fifth-place finish put Milton ahead of seventh-place Southwestern/Cuba City, which edged Milton for the Platteville sectional title.


Felstead had a top score for the Red Hawks in every event. She recorded a 9.367 in the uneven parallel bars, a 9.133 in the floor exercise, a 8.95 in the balance beam and a 8.933 in the vault.


Joining Felstead at the team state meet were sophomores Cassie Cropp, Alexandra Burki, Anna Bailey, and senior Beth Beyer. Cropp finished 13th in the balance beam in the individual state meet Friday.
