OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - A Holmen woman who took home the Miss Wisconsin crown has become the first person to hold the title twice.

Raenna Johnson was named Miss Wisconsin on Saturday night in Oshkosh.

It’s a repeat - of sorts - for Johnson.

Back in 2011, she was named first runner-up to Laura Kaeppeler. But then Kaeppeler went on to win the Miss America pageant - so Johnson assumed the Miss Wisconsin title in January of 2012.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1l1H2jI) that pageant rules allow women who ascend to state titles to compete again after skipping a year. That’s what Johnson did.

The 24-year-old Johnson graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse this year. She studied communications and women’s studies. She’ll compete in the Miss America pageant in September.
