Lexi Donarski named Miss Basketball

Aquinas girls basketball didn’t get a chance at another state title, but La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat still wants to make sure the team gets recognized.

When the team got back from Green Bay, Kabat presented them with a plaque that declares this Monday the 2019-20 Aquinas Girls Basketball Day.

While the whole team earns an honor, senior Lexi Donarski is picking up an individual one, as she’s been named 2020 Wisconsin Miss Basketball.
While she would’ve loved to play one more game, she says she’ll always remember the last four years as a Blugold.

“Definitely the great people that I’ve gotten to share this whole experience with. I’ve had some amazing teammates throughout all of my four years,” Donarski said. “I hope people remember the success that this whole program has had especially in the last four years, because it really is a great accomplishment. This last season has really helped me to reflect on the things that I have, because you never know when something’s going to be gone.”

Tomorrow on News 8 Now, we’ll show you how Donarski’s work ethic started from an early age, and how the game is really a family affair.
