G-E-T’s Wagner pacing Red Hawks this season

Lexi Wagner already owns the single game school scoring record.

“I had no idea honestly. After the game people were saying you had 51. I didn’t even believe them I said, there’s no way,” G-E-T junior Lexi Wagner said.

She did that in her last game, tied for 10th best in state history.

“Off ball movements is where I got most of my shots. In transition. I’m just the one who happen to make all those shots. I just ended up making them,” Wagner said.

“She could of had 60 is some of those easier shots fell for her early,” G-E-T head coach Rick Schmidt said.

Now the G-E-T junior has a chance to become the greatest scorer in school history.

“I wouldn’t doubt that she puts just as much if not more time in the gym than those playing college ball or getting paid to play,” Schmidt said.

“She’s very good at seeing the court, and seeing who is open and dribble into caps, and getting teammates open. Being a team player,” G-E-T junior Olivia Zielke said.

Through 15 games this season, Wagner is averaging more than 21 points a game for the 13-2 Red Hawks.

“Since middle school. I’ve been trying to be a scorer. Try to be a playmaker,” Wagner said.

Wagner’s ability to score wherever on the court has her moving up the school’s career scoring list quickly, eclipsing the 1,000 career point total faster than any other female to put on a G-E-T uniform.

“Watching my brothers. That’s what they’ve done. They’ve both been scorers and playmakers. I’ve learned a lot from them,” Wagner said.

Her brothers sit at the top of the school scoring list….leading to a little trash talk in the Wagner household.

“We talk about it a little bit. For the most part we just try to make each other better. Help each other,” Wagner said.

Scoring records aside, there is a team goal she wants to add to her resume, leading G-E-T to their first ever trip to the state tournament.

“That would be a lot of fun. We just have to keep working hard and keep growing throughout the season and see what happens,” Wagner said.
