Divine Savior Holy Angels High School basketball player Arike Ogunbowale will be honored at the Common Council meeting tomorrow — Tuesday, February 10 — in the Common Council Chamber, 3rd floor of City Hall, 200 E. Wells St., at 9:00 a.m. Ms. Ogunbowale will be honored for her participation in the 2015 McDonald’s All-American Game.

Ms. Ogunbowale was selected to play for the East squad in the 38th McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago on April 1, 2015, a high honor as she was one of just a few selected to compete from a pool of more than 800 nominated U.S. players. She is the first girls’ basketball player from Milwaukee and only the third in Wisconsin history to receive the honor.

Ms. Ogunbowale’s dedication at DSHA has earned her a full scholarship to the University of Notre Dame, which has one of the top NCAA Division I women’s basketball programs in the U.S.
