WATERTOWN, Wis. -- Maranatha Athletics is proud to recognize Laci (Peterson) Gorski as the all-decade MVP for Maranatha Women's Basketball.
Laci stands out among many logical candidates for the recognition, and she represents the consistent excellence of a number of top competitors that have come through the program. Her All-American recognition, national statistical titles, career stats, and contributions to a national-championship run during her junior and senior season make her the top choice:
