GREEN BAY, Wis. — After losing by a basket in last year’s state championship, the Aquinas High School girls basketball team left no doubt this time around.

In a battle of undefeateds, the top-ranked Blugolds took down No. 2-ranked Melrose-Mindoro 68-52 to capture the WIAA Division 4 state title.

Six scored scored in double-figures for Aquinas (28-0), which was up 28-13 at halftime. The two teams combined for 41 turnovers — 25 of those by M-M.

Neither team shot well at the Resch Center , going a combined 35 percent from the field (45 of 128) and 3-for-32 from beyond the arc.

Lexi Donarski had 11 points (3-of-13 shooting) and seven assists for Aquinas, while teammate Kyah Steiner led the team with 13 points, 14 rebounds and 10 turnovers.

M-M got 14 points (6-for-15 shooting), 11 rebounds from Ericka Simmons, while teammate Callette Lockington had 12 points, 11 turnovers.
