BRAINERD -- The Willmar Cardinals opened their season with a flourish, defeating Brainerd for the first time this century 137.975-133.775 on Thursday in Central Lakes Conference gymnastics.

"This early you don't know what to expect, but we hit on vault, floor and beam," said Willmar head coach Larry Selchow. "We're looking at our best start in years."

The Cardinals last defeated Brainerd in a dual meet on Jan. 8 1999 by a score of 142.05 to 140.85.

Sophomore Abbey Weiler led the five Cardinal all-arounders with a combined four-event score of 35.55. She was first in beam, where Willmar had just one fall, with a 9.0 and also on floor exercise at 9.35.

Ashley Delp was third all-around and second on vault and beam. Kelsey Jacobson and Kaitlyn Lindblad tied for fourth all-around and Kara Hallberg was seventh all-around.
