New Miss Wisconsin Named

A new Miss Wisconsin was named Saturday night to represent our state at the Miss America pageant.

Miss New Berlin, Tracy Gest, played a piece by Chopin on the piano and won the preliminary swimsuit competition to secure her spot as Miss Wisconsin 2005.

The 20-year-old communications major at Carroll College gets a $10,000 scholarship and a trip to the national pageant this fall in Atlantic City.

She plans to promote diabetes awareness during her year-long stint. Gest succeeds Molly Jean McGrath of Wisconsin Rapids.

Four days of events were held this week in Oshkosh.
