Sparta, WISCONSIN (WXOW) - It was an unlikely combination Sunday in Sparta. The Rebel gymnastics team held their annual holiday concert with a unique musical accompaniment, Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School's Vocal Point a cappella group.
The coach of the gymnasts and the director of the group are a husband and wife team.
"It really is to get the community to know that we're here, and get us the support that we need to get the school board's attention," said Pagee Stuempges, the gymnastics coach.
Right now the Sparta school district doesn't have a gymnastics team. Stuempges hopes to show the school board that the Rebels could be a feeder program for a middle and high school team.
Tickets to the event were 6 dollars or 5 with a non-perishable food item. Stuempges hopes to raise 1-to-2 thousand dollars to help the team buy a new balance beam.
