NRHEG star is AP Player of the Year

MINNEAPOLIS — New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva guard Carlie Wagner has been picked as the Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year award winner for high school girls basketball.

The AP's all-state team was announced Monday. Joining Wagner on the first team were Minneapolis Washburn's Chase Coley, Bloomington Kennedy's Kenisha Bell, Eastview's Madison Guebert and Park Center's Cayla McMorris. Guebert is the only junior; the others are seniors.

Wagner will play for the University of Minnesota next season. She set a state tournament record with 53 points for the Panthers in their quarterfinal game and led them to a 31-0 record and second straight Class AA title.

Wagner finished her career with a state-record 3,957 points, including 371 in state tournaments, which is also the most in Minnesota girls history.

The AP second-team included Tartan senior Tia Elbert, Chicago Lakes senior Bryanna Fernstrom, Park of Cottage Grove senior Sydney Lamberty, Jordan senior Madison Dean and New London-Spicer senior Taylor Thunstedt.

The AP third team included Holy Family senior Michaela Rasmussen, Simley senior Kylie Brown, Rosemount senior Hannah Grim, Minneota senior Taylor Reiss and Fergus Falls senior Bailey Strand.
