STEVENS POINT, Wis. – The 51st Annual State Gymnastics Championships concluded with the crowning of team and individual champions in four events and an all-around competition in two divisions Saturday. The Division 1 championships were held at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School, and the Division 2 championships were hosted by Onalaska High School at Performance Elite Gymnastics in La Crosse, Wis.
