NEW RICHLAND — New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva senior Carlie Wagner picked up another award Saturday, being named Ms. Basketball, an honor for Minnesota's top senior girls basketball player as determined by the state coaches association.
Wagner, who scored 3,957 points in her career, second best in state history, also was named the state's top player by The Associated Press and Gatorade.
Wagner, who will attend the University of Minnesota next season, finished her career by setting nearly every state-tournament scoring record and leading NRHEG to consecutive Class AA championships and a 61-game winning streak.
Wagner, a 5-foot-10 guard, holds state-tournament records for single-game scoring (53 points) and single-game field goal attempts (43). She set three-game tournament records for points (130), field goals made (48) and field goals attempted (110).
For her state-tournament career, which included three seasons, she scored a record 371 points.
