The 2023 NCGA Championships (Division 3 Nationals) took place at Winona State this past weekend. Region 5 was well represented at these championships.

The University of Wisconsin OshKosh won their 2nd consecutive national title over Wisconsin Lacrosse by two tenths of a point with Wisconsin Stout finishing 3rd. OshKosh had five R5 Alums contribute to their national championship efforts with 9.7+ efforts from sophomore Mia Lucero (video below), sophomore Delaney Cienkus (video below) and freshman Mady Bellmore (Beam) as well as a very nice bar set from sophomore Sam Zeilinger (bars-9.425)

Wisconsin Lacrosse senior Kerrie Legault (video below) posted a 9.625 on bars while senior Alex Wood contributed two counting scores on vault (9.575) and floor (9.65) respectfully. Junior Claudia Walter posted a counting 9.475 on bars while senior Cate Sandvik competed in the all around for the Eagles.

Five Region 5 Alums finished in the top 10 individually with one claiming a national event title. Sophomore Kara Welsh from White Water, who finished 3rd on vault in 2022, won the 2023 national title with a very impressive Yurchenko full.
