Senior Standout 12/7: Havre High's Dani Wagner

Posted: Updated:

If you ask Havre High's Dani Wagner what she does when she's not playing Basketball, she will tell you she will be, "With my family, playing sports."

It's the perfect way to describe a pure athlete like Dani, who also plays Volleyball and Softball. Her entire family has a history with college sports. Dani is the youngest of five and her older brothers Gary and Billy helped the Carroll Saints win a National Football Title in 2010. These accomplishments pushed Dani to become a better athlete.

"Just watching them growing up and what they've done. It made me want to do the same," says Wagner. "My older brothers and sisters have always pushed me in everything. I guess it's helped a lot."

But soon Dani will have the chance to make her own mark in Carroll's history. She's currently commited to the Saints for Basketball.

"She knows that I know the players very well," says Wagner about Carroll Women's Basketball head coach Rachelle Sayers. "That kind of helps and she knows I've always wanted to go there. She wants someone that wants to be there."

Before she puts on a Saints uniform she still has some work to do as a Blue Pony. Dani helped Havre High win the State title in 2014 but they fell short last year. As the lone senior on the team, the Ponies will be relying on her to lead the way.

"Her leadership so far has been second to none," says Havre High head coach Dustin Kraske. "She kinda knows she's going to have to work us through some growing pains we'll have early in the season. We had a great season together where these kids played quite a bit. She's just an all around great kid with that."

"Dani brings a lot to the table because she can play a lot of different positions," says her Junior teammate Naomi Terry. "She's also big but she can also be a point guard or shooting guard. She plays a lot of positions. I've been playing with her for all through my high shcool. It's been really fun."

And like any Senior, Dani hopes to end the season by hanging another banner.

"That's what I've been working for my entire life," says Dani. "Just to end my entire career in high school with that."

Hopefully she can raise another trophy at the end of March, since winning tends to run in the family.
