O'Hara Sets Three School Records

The Whippet Gymnasts took on Division 1 combined team Burlington, Badger, Wilmot, Catholic Central, Union Grove for their last home meet of the season and came up short 118.125 to 134.175. Although the team did not pull out a win, senior Kelly O’Hara had an unbelievable meet and broke three school records during the senior night celebration. This is the 42nd year Whitewater High School has had a team, and O’Hara is now the top gymnast of all time with a new all-around score of 36.175. She surpassed previous record holder Kim Stonewerth who set the record in 2011. Along with breaking the all-around record, she broke her own floor record and achieved a new high score of 9.5. Along with this, she broke the beam record set by Stonewerth in 2011. Coach Galbrecht stated, “This is such a neat way for Kelly to end the final home meet of her career and all of the coaches couldn’t be more excited for her.”
