EAGLE RIVER - With Northland Pines' win over Clintonville on Tuesday night, Lexi Smith's incredible high school basketball career will continue for at least one more game.
That means at least one more practice, where you can always find her moving at full speed, and pushing her teammates along the way.
"I think it's the most fun part about practice. I love playing defense against her, I love bumping up against her," said Northland Pines junior Cassie Gauthier.
Such determination has been a big part of her athletic success, but it's the huge amount of success that's truly impressive.
"She's a three sport athlete and she's gotten GNC Player of the Year in every sport she's played," said northland Pines Head Basketball Coach Larry Bergum.
Smith is a seven time first-team all-conference player in volleyball, basketball, and soccer.
On the hardwood is where she really shines. The Eagles senior eclipsed the 2,000 career point mark fewer than two weeks ago, making her just the 20th girls player in Wisconsin history to reach the milestone.
"1976 girls basketball started, that's 41 years ago, and like you say out of thousands of girls that have participated since then, and there's more girls in the sport now than ever, and there's only 20 and she's one of the 20 that accomplished that goal," said Bergum. "That's amazing."
Her teammates understand they've been lucky to play with such a dominant force on the court.
But if you ask them, that's not even the best part.
"I think her leadership is the biggest thing with how she works with everyone. She's very humble, and she just knows how to incorporate everyone to get herself open and to get other people open, so she's really fun to play with," said junior Hadley Kruse.
Despite scoring at will for almost four straight years, and even though 2,000 points is the more rare accomplishment, Smith says it's an earlier milestone game that stands out in her mind.
"The game that always sticks in my head is the Medford game last year when we came back from 26 points down. It was also the night I hit my 1,000th point, and it was just a big night overall," said Smith.
She's not only the league's top scorer.
The senior also leads the Great Northern Conference in rebounding, blocks and free throw percentage.
Her career point total is now at 2,058, which is just seven points shy of 12th place all time.
She's off to Northern Michigan University next year to play basketball for the Wildcats.
