Holmen, WI (WXOW) -

Karen Kuhlmann helped build Holmen gymnastics into a perennial power.

Now she's being recognized nationally. Kuhlmann was named National Federation of State High School's National Coach of the Year for girls gymnastics.

Kuhlmann has been the head coach at Holmen since 1985.

Since then, the Vikings have won 11 MVC titles and qualified for state 16 times. Of those 16 trips, Holmen has won two state titles and finished second twice.

She's also coached two individual state champions.
