STREIGNTH ATHLETE LEXI DONARSKI
Iowa State Basketball | Onalaska, WI
Meet lexi donarski
Hey everyone! My name is Lexi Donarski. I am from Onalaska, WI, and I am a current basketball player at Iowa State University. I was a three-sport athlete in high school competing in basketball, volleyball, and track. I am the 2020 Miss Basketball, AP Player of the Year, and Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Wisconsin. I am a McDonald's All-American and selected to participate in the Jordan Brand Classic. I was named the Big 12 Freshman of the Year last season, as well as participating with Team USA at U19 tryouts and USA 3x3 nationals. I started getting focused on weightlifting in high school, and it has really helped me become the athlete I am today. My main goal is to inspire and motivate as well as being a role model to the next generation of female athletes.

HOW HAS STREIGNTH CHANGED YOUR LIFE
Streignth has surrounded me with like-minded, motivated people that continues to allow me to grow.
Lexi's relentless work ethic and talent has granted her some remarkable opportunities so far- one (in only 7 girls) being an invite to Steph Curry's Select Camp back in August 2019.
Lexi has been playing basketball since she was 3 years old- you could say it's in her DNA. As a standout athlete at Aquinas, she continues to dominate now at Iowa State.
We are beyond excited to have Lexi help lead our movement. She completely embodies the Streignth Mentality.
