Corrections: Due to a reporting error, Thursday's Madison Memorial vs. Madison West score was incorrect in a previous version of this story. The first box score received also incorrectly stated the wrong scoring total. Both mistakes have been corrected. The stats and information for Madison Memorial gymnastics' win over Middleton were also incomplete in the prior version of this story and did not include Sarah Hershberger's all-around win.
