Grafton/Cedarburg’s gymnastics team beat Port Washington on the road on Dec. 20, 134.05 to 117.65.
Abby Cibulka led the Bull Hawks with a first place on beam with a score of 9.375.
Shaye Taubner won the floor exercise with a 9.15.
“So far the team is doing well. December proves to be a difficult competition month for us because there are only one to two practices between each meet. This means less time for the girls to be working on new skills to add into their routines,” coach Siri Bartlein said.
“In January, they are looking forward to working on improving their gymnastics and adding higher difficulty, or harder skills, into their routines.”
CAITLIN HASSLER s1122017237For Port, senior Izzi Wickus scored above a 9.0 on beam and floor.
The Pirates return letter winners Carmen Hoag, Toni Snook, Julia Griesch, Caitlin Hassler and McKenzie Rick.
More help comes from Wickus, who has already eclipsed the 9.0 mark in three events.
Freshmen Eliana Plier and Julia Burke have added depth to the lineup.
Port has a new coach in Gale Sigler. She had coached the Pirates for four years and at Homestead for seven, as well as at a private club and at the Port Recreation Department.
“I look forward to working with the school and rec department in building a strong, successful and competitive program,” Sigler said.
“The entire team continues to advance in their routines and work to ‘perfect’ them heading into the second half of the season.”
Port was scheduled to compete at North Shore Conference foe Hartford on Wednesday and at Waterford on Saturday. The Pirates host West Bend West on Jan. 10.
The Bull Hawks were to compete at Homestead on Wednesday and at West Bend East on Jan. 9.
