Janesville Craig’s young gymnastics team finally got its first taste of competition Tuesday night.
Olivia Rebout won every event and the all-around, but Whitewater pushed passed the Cougars 110.15-107.2 in a nonconference meet.
“Our girls did pretty well considering it was our first meet,” Craig coach Jean Welch said. “Lots of first-meet jitters. This year is really all about giving kids an opportunity. We have a very young, inexperienced team that will hopefully improve as we go on.
“Olivia had a great start to the season. She and Charli (Degarmo) are our only returnees from a senior-laden group last year.”
Rebout won with marks of 9.05 on vault, 9.025 on uneven bars, 8.2 on balance beam and 8.95 on floor. Her 35.225 all-around score was more than six points clear of her closest competitor.
Degarmo was second on floor and beam and third on vault.
