Aquinas' Lexi Donarski has been selected as the top senior Point Guard as part of the WSN Senior Basketball Awards

Donarski, a four-time first-team WBCA all-state selection, is a highly skilled and dynamic point guard that can take over a game with her ability to shoot the three, get to the hoop and find the open player. She also plays at a high level on the defensive end of the floor, using her length and athleticism to get steals and deflections. 

She has led Aquinas to a 106-3 record in her career, which includes four state tournament appearances and the past two Division 4 state titles, heading into the 2020 WIAA State Tournament.

Donarski, an Iowa State signee, is averaging 24.3 points with 63 three-pointers, to go along with 4.4 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 5.4 steals per game for coach and father Dave Donarski. 

She is shooting 57.7 percent from the floor, 46 percent from behind the arc, and 81 percent from the free throw line. 

Aquinas has a 24-1 record entering the state tournament. The Blugolds' lone loss was against Hopkins, Minn., defending Class 4A state champions and unbeaten in the past two seasons. 

The 5-foot-10 point guard enters the WIAA state tournament with career totals of 2,083 points, 552 assists and 381 steals. 

Donarski will be competing in the McDonald's All-American Game on April 1. 

Aquinas plays Crandon in a WIAA Division 4 state semifinal on Thursday at 6:35. p.m. 

Finalists for the award were Donarski, Khamya McNeal of Milwaukee King, Natalie McNeal of Germantown, Jaddan Simmons of Green Bay Southwest, and Caroline Strande of Racine Lutheran. 

Past winners of the award include Sydney Hilliard of Monroe (2019), Kari Brekke of Appleton North (2018), Cassidy Trotter of Beaver Dam (2017), Hannah Whitish of Barneveld (2016), Gabby Green of Pius XI (2015), Gabrielle Ortiz of The Prairie School (2014), Taylor Schmidt of Algoma (2013), and Nicole Bauman of New Berlin Eisenhower (2012).

WSN Senior Basketball Awards are selected by staff.
