  • Gymnasts outscored by Hilltoppers

        Another trip to Wisconsin last Thursday gave the Caledonia/Spring Grove/Houston gymnastics team another chance to compete against a non-conference opponent. Although the West Salem Cooperative team was also on hand at Onalaska High School, the venue was a double-dual. That meant each visitor was competing against the Hilltoppers simultaneously, but not against each other. The Warriors were defeated 126.225 – 132.775.
