— Janesville Craig’s girls swim team got off to a positive start at Saturday’s Big Eight Conference meet.

The Cougars set a school record in the first event of the day—the 200-yard medley relay—on their way to a sixth-place finish in the 10-team meet.


Middleton won with 560 points, followed by Verona (441.5), Madison Memorial (385), Madison West (204) and Sun Prairie (176).


Craig scored 168 points for sixth. Janesville Parker was 10th with 26 points.


Alexis Roach, Cady Gansen, Emma Schmaling and Ashley Fry combined for Craig in the 200 medley relay, in which they finished seventh. Their time of 1:55.47 eclipsed the former mark of 1:56.28 set in 2009.


“That was definitely the highlight of the meet for us,” Craig coach Brian Kitzman said. “A number of girls and relays made the podium (top eight) for us today. It was the most podium finishes we’ve had in a long time.


“Overall, it was a very good meet for us.”


Other top individual Craig finishes included: Roach, fifth in the 500 freestyle; Sierra Rhodes, seventh in the 500 freestyle; Kali Schneider, seventh in the 200 individual medley; and Gansen, seventh in the 100 breaststroke.


The Cougars’ 200 freestyle relay was sixth, and the 400 freestyle relay was seventh.


Members of the 200 free relay were Maggie Gorman, Jessica Washington, Sierra Rhodes and Fry. Schneider, Schmaling, Gansen and Fry combined in the 400 free relay.


Parker’s top finish was a 12th in the 400 freestyle relay.
