Beating Monona Grove in a nonconference dual was a secondary goal for the Janesville Parker High gymnastics team Tuesday night.
Parker’s gymnasts christened the home invite “Flipping for Jack,” and sold T-shirts to raise money in support of head coach Heidi Jegerlehner’s son, Jack, who is battling laryngomalacia, a rare condition that affects his ability to breathe.
“Our gymnasts were determined and excited to have a great meet,” Heidi Jegerlehner said. “These student athletes wanted this tonight (and) they did a great job.”
Parker senior Carson Richards won two events, the balance beam and floor exercise, on her way to the all-around title (31.15 points). Monona Grove won the dual 123.5-111.6, with the Vikings setting a season-high score in the defeat.
Monona Grove’s Tatum Capouch won the uneven bars and teammate Payton Jenks-Wrecker won the vault.
Vikings sophomore Haleigh Komprood was second in the all-around (28.525).
