MUHS gymnasts defeat Milton
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School gymnastics team pulled out a victory over visiting Milton on Wednesday by a slim margin, 115.20-115.05, at Middlebury Union Middle School.
Strong efforts by Tiger gymnasts Lian McGarry, Laura Whitley and Carly Burger helped the Tigers overcome a big night from Milton’s Alexis Drown, who won on the beam, tied Burger for first on the floor and for fourth in the vault, and outpointed the field to win the all-around title.
McGarry won the vault and tied Whitley for first on the bars, while Whitley added seconds on the beam and in the all-around and a sixth on the floor. Burger added a third on the beam to her efforts on the floor and in the vault.
Non-scoring Tiger male gymnast Nick Scott posted results that would have been good enough to win the vault (8.35) and bars (8.4).
