— Becky Schneider won on uneven bars and finished second in the all-around to lead Janesville Craig High School’s gymnastics team to a second-place finish Saturday in the Purgolder Invitational at Madison East.

Craig finished second in the Gold Division with 125.5 points, while Big Eight Conference powerhouse Middleton won with a score of 135.775.


“I was real happy with how we performed today,” Craig coach Jean Welch said. “That’s a good (team) score for us, and for this time of year, we’re looking very strong.


“This was a very good invite considering the good competition. And to just miss beating Middleton, says a lot about our team right now.”


Schneider won the uneven bars with a score of 9.025, and was second in the all-around with a score of 36.025.


The Cougars will return to Big Eight action on Monday, Jan. 25, when they host Verona.
