The event consists of nearly 400 singers from around the state performing in 20 separate divisions. Lacey Jo Benter, a Lawrence senior, earned the top honors for the fourth time in as many years, competing in the senior women’s division. The other first place winners were Alex Johnson in the freshmen men’s division, Cassie Glaeser in the sophomore women’s division, Derrell Acon in the junior men’s divison, and Chris Besch in the senior men’s division. The event was held at UW-Whitewater last weekend.
