Kaukauna senior Lauren Danner will join the Phoenix softball team in the fall

GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay softball recruit Lauren Danner (Kaukauna, Wis.) continues to prove why she is more than capable of playing at the Division I level for the Phoenix in the fall. Danner has been a driving force for the Kaukauna Ghosts, who rank No. 13 in the nation in the latest USA Today/National Fastpitch Coaches Association High School Top 25.

The rankings are compiled by state representatives from across the country while taking into consideration the school's strength of schedule, quality of competition in the state or league and quality of players. Kaukauna entered the poll on April 7 at No. 21 and has consistently moved up.

In November, Donner signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Phoenix. Considered the state's premier pitcher, Donner and her Kaukauna Ghosts are undefeated this season (8-0) with its toughest competition being the weather.

Donner is wrapping up her high school career after a successful junior campaign which included being named to the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association (WFSCA) All-State First Team and honored with the WFSCA Player of the Year award. The 2010 Appleton Post Crescent Softball Athlete of the Year was also an All-FVA First Team selection with 12 shutouts, averaging 8.24 Ks per game. Donner helped guide her team to the Division I Wisconsin State Championship title.
