Holmgren, who finished as Saint Peter High School’s all-time leading scorer for basketball, girls and boys, capped her career scoring more than 2,314-career points and leading the Saints to a fifth-place finish in the Minnesota Class AAA Girls State Tournament in mid-March. It was the Saints first state appearance since 2019 and the highest state finish in 30-plus years for the girls program.

The senior standout, who will take her talents to the 2024 NCAA-DII national champion Minnesota State University (Mankato) next season, was named a Class AAA All-State selection, a four-time All-Big South Selection, and a member of the Saints’ team that earned the Academic All-State Gold Award for having a team GPA of 3.86. She also was recently named as the KNUJ Girls Basketball Player of the Year!

Holmgren is the first Saints’ girls basketball player to take part in the Minnesota Girls All-Star Game since Katy Kuiper did so after the 2012-13 season. Another former Saints’ standout Sarah Conlon was chosen to play in the All-Star Game after the 2019-20 season, but the series was cancelled due to the pandemic.
