The Janesville Parker and Janesville Craig gymnastics teams lost Thursday night in Big Eight Conference dual meets.

Madison Memorial defeated Craig 132.5-119.7, while Sun Prairie beat Parker 129.875-108.95.

Craig, which fell to 3-3 in the Big Eight, got a second-place finish from Ariyana Stalsberg on uneven bars.

“It was not our best night,” Craig coach Jean Welch said. “We had to count a few uncharacteristic falls. We had some kids out with the flu, so we were a little out of sorts.

“Ariyana had a very nice meet, and Phoebe (Werner) had good vaults and floor.”

Parker wrapped up its regular season by honoring seniors Carson Richards, Lauryn Meglic, Alexis O’Beirne & Belgium exchange student Fran Libeer.

“We performed to the best of our ability on vault, uneven bars and floor exercise,” Parker coach Heidi Jegerlehner said. We suffered quite a few falls on beam, which reflected in our team score.

“We have a week, hopefully with this weather, to prepare for the Big 8 Conference Meet next week. I believe with the determination and heart our team has, we will have another season-high score.”
