St. Croix Lutheran • basketball

Earlier this season, Hauge, a 5-9 senior guard, became the state's career leader in three-point field goals made.

Hauge started the season with 434 — 24 shy of the record held by Marissa Janning of Watertown-Mayer. Through Saturday, Hauge led the state with 98 three-pointers this season to increase her career total to 532.

But statistical accomplishments aren't what stands out about Hauge for her coach.

"Laura is having a great season," Lancers coach David Mielke said. "She has also set so many records at St Croix Lutheran Academy, but the one I am most proud of for her is that she has not missed a game since she has started varsity in seventh grade."

Hauge, averaging 23.8 points per game, made nine three-pointers and scored 32 in the Crusaders' 81-37 victory over Concordia Academy on Feb. 5. She added 19 points and four three-pointers in a 70-16 victory over Cristo Rey Jesuit two nights later.

"Her hard work and dedication has made me very proud of her for all her accomplishments, while keeping a team-first mentality," Mielke said.
