The Golden Girl. The Dagger. The best athlete to emerge from NRHEG. These are all attributed to Carlie Wagner, and now that she’s been off the basketball court in New Richland for a year and nearly a full year out of high school, she had time to reflect on the hurricane of activity that’s encompassed her since moving on to become a Minnesota Golden Gopher.

What’s the biggest difference between playing schools like Braham and Kenyon-Wanamingo for state championships and moving to Division I college hoops against Maryland and Ohio State?

“At the collegiate level, the game moves at an incredible speed, and at first I felt like I was in a whirlwind on the court,” explained Wagner. “Eventually things started slowing down for me, and I started seeing openings and opportunities I struggled to see before.”
