The Onalaska High School basketball programs are officially producing four NCAA Division II players for next season.

Senior Carson Arenz announced Monday that he will play at Winona State University, and that allows him to join a list that already includes Onalaska seniors Tyrell Stuttley, Lexi Miller and Kenzie Miller.

Stuttley will play at Minnesota State-Mankato, while the Miller sisters have committed to Newberry College (S.C.).

Arenz, a 6-foot-5 forward/guard, averaged 13.3 points as a senior while helping the Hilltoppers (23-2, 12-0) win the MVC and hold the state's No. 1 ranking in Division 2 for most of the season.

Arenz was a four-year contributor for Onalaska, which posted an 83-17 record with him on the team. He became a starter as a sophomore and ended that season as the team's second-leading scorer at 13.0 ppg.

Arenz made a combined 100 3-pointers in his final two seasons and shot 44.6 percent (58-for-130) from the 3-point line as a senior as Onalaska swept Central in two regular-season games to end its four-year reign as conference champion.

He shot 51.1 percent overall and ranked third on the team in rebounds (4.2 per game) and steals (2.0 per game) and made at least one 3-pointer in 21 of the Hilltoppers' 25 games.

The Warriors were 18-11 overall and 14.8 in the NSIC during 2019-2020, finishing third in the South Division. Winona State started a senior, three juniors and one sophomore last season.
