The fifth time was the charm for Kelsi Vomacka. She brought home her first Minnesota Class 1A state all-around individual gymnastics championship title after finishing runner-up the past four years.


"I've been dreaming about this since eighth grade," Vomacka said.

Vomacka began the day on the balance beam, scoring a 9.650, good for second place to Detroit Lakes' Amy Crawford.

"I always like starting on beam," Vomacka said.
