Marlie Lockhart wrapped up her successful campaign by finding the podium three times Saturday at the WIAA state gymnastics meet.

The Elkhorn junior totaled 36.35 points to finish fifth in the Division 2 all-around, joining Kristi Lewis, Allie Phillips, Randi Fuller and Courtney Leece as the only gymnasts from her school to have reached the podium in the all-around at state.

Lewis was the state all-around champion in 1985 and 1987, Phillips was the champion in 2008 and 2011, Fuller finished fourth in 2011 and sixth in 2013 and Leece finished fourth in 2002.

Lockhart also finished fourth on the uneven bars (8.733) and 10th on the vault (9.133).
