Franchesca Hutton, of Shakopee, and graduate of PiM Arts High School, is one of six members of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater gymnastics team who earned recognition on the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association's first-ever All-Championship Team based on their performance during the regular season and during last Saturday's Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship/NCGA West Regional.

Hutton was named to the All-Championship team for balance beam.

The newly-implemented All-Championship Team recognizes the top 10 from each region, on each event, based on the top five finishers in each regional tournament, plus the top five highest season average scores going into the tournament.

All honorees will be recognized at the NCGA Championship on March 23.

Hutton tied for fourth in regular season SAS on the balance beam with a 9.6375.

UW-Whitewater punched its ticket to the NCGA Championship thanks to a third-place team finish at the WIAC Championship/NCGA West Regional. Gymnasts who are on the All-Championship team who are not on qualifying teams are invited to compete as individuals at the NCGA Championship, which is set for March 23 at UW-Oshkosh.
