Waunakee senior Elena Maier announced on Twitter that she has orally committed to Kent State University in Ohio and plans to play women’s college basketball.
The 5-foot-9 Maier was a first-team all-conference girls basketball selection in the Badger North Conference in 2019-20. She was an honorable-mention choice on the Wisconsin State Journal’s 2019-20 All-Area girls basketball team (which includes all divisions).
Maier averaged 14.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 steals per game last season.
Waunakee finished 19-6 overall, including 10-4 in the Badger North, which was good for third place. Third-seeded Waunakee defeated Janesville Parker 68-37 and Lake Geneva Badger 75-35 in postseason, before dropping a 70-58 decision to Madison Memorial in a WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinal.
She tweeted: “I am excited to announce that I have committed to Kent State University to further my academic and basketball career. Thank you, Coach Starkey and the KSU staff, for this opportunity. So grateful to my coaches, friends & family who have helped me reach this level. Go Flashes!”
Maier wasn’t able to play golf for Waunakee this season after sustaining a knee injury playing AAU basketball, Waunakee girls golf coach Paul Miller had said before golf season.
