Local high school celebrates big accomplishments of former graduate Arike Ogunbowale
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee High School is celebrating one of their graduates who made two big shots in this year's women's NCAA tournament and helped her team win the national championship.
"She's just so amazing and so talented and we were so excited when she made those two amazing shots.
Arike Ogunbowale is a junior at the University of Notre Dame. She is also a graduate of Divine Savior Holy Angels High School. The school held a pep rally for her before she appears on Dancing With The Stars.
Her dad was at the pep rally on Thursday afternoon and he says he's proud of his daughter. "She worked hard at it, but nobody expected it to be this big. If you work, good things will come to you so I'm very proud of her," said Greg Ogunbowale.
Arike couldn't be at the pep rally but she and her Dancing With The Star's partner surprised the students by FaceTiming with them during the pep rally.
