2016-2017 Skylights Recruits

The women's basketball and rodeo programs at Montana State University-Northern are proud to announce the signing of St. Labre standout Shiloh McCormick.  McCormick signed letters of intent Wednesday at St. Labre High School in Ashland.

On the basketball floor, McCormick is a four-time all-state performer and four-time all-conference selection.  She scored 2214 points in her in her illustrious career, and finished the season as the 5th all-time leading scorer in Montana girls basketball history. This season, she averaged 30.8 points per game in helping lead the Braves to a third place finish at the 2016 Class B State Tournament.  She scored 50 points or more in three consecutive games and scored 117 points in the state tournament.  Her 48-point performance is the highest point total ever tallied in a girls basketball state tournament.

MSU-Northern women's basketball coach Chris Mouat said, "Shiloh is an outstanding player and a very big addition to the Skylight program.  What she has done during her high school career is amazing.  Shiloh has an excellent offensive skill set.  She can score from virtually everywhere on the floor.  She has great 3-point range, can hit the mid-range jumper, and gets to the rim.  What impresses me just as much, however, is her floor vision.  She puts teammates in excellent position to score and is an outstanding passer."

At the conclusion of her high school career, McCormick's mark was left on the Montana girls basketball record book.  In addition to finishing 5th in scoring, her 889 points scored this year placed her second behind Kayla Lambert.  Her career scoring average of 27.5 places her fifth in history.  This season, McCormick averaged 30.8 points per game, placing her third behind Lambert and Carla Beattie.  Throughout her career, she had 62 games in which she scored 20 points or more, also good for third behind Katie Edwards and Loree Payne.  This season, McCormick had three games with 50 points or more as well as a game with 48 points, putting her in the top ten individual performances of all-time four times.  She had a career-high of 51 points (tied for 6th all-time).

McCormick recently earned Most Valuable Player honors at the 30th Annual Hi-Line Invitational Tournament in Havre.  Last week, it was announced that McCormick will play the the prestigious Montana-Wyoming All-Star series alongside some of the very best players in Montana. 

Mouat added, "We are thrilled that Shiloh has chosen to continue her career in two sports at MSU-Northern.  She is a proven winner and outstanding competitor.  We are very excited about her future as a Skylight and believe that she has an amazing future as an MSU-Northern student-athlete."

In the rodeo arena, Shiloh has also had an illustrious career and has been an Indian Nationals Finals Rodeo card holder since 2006.  She is a three-time qualifier in Indian Nationals Finals Rodeo junior and senior barrel racing.  She was twice the event director in barrel racing and two years in Nationals Plains Indian Rodeo Association.  She was the Pretty Shield Youth Challenge champion as well as the Lady Ultimate Warrior champion.

In the NPIRA, McCormick was twice the year-end winner in NPIRA and once was the year-end winner in Rocky Mountain Indian Rodeo Association.  She also won one of her titles in NPIRA in sudden death.

MSU-Northern rodeo coach Doug Kallenberger said, "Shiloh is a tremendous athlete and will continue to be a two-sport standout at the collegiate level.  Shiloh handles the rope really well and will be a great addition to our rodeo program."

Shiloh is the daughter of Richard and Camille McCormick.  She carries a 3.3 grade point average.

Montana State University-Northern women’s basketball coach Chris Mouat has announced the signing of Northwest College standout Kealani Sagapolu.  Sagapolu, a 5-foot-10 forward, was a two-year starter and an NJCAA All-Region IX selection this season.  In 2015, Sagapolu was named to the Region IX All-Defensive Team as well as the Region IX All-Tournament team.  This year, she averaged 14.7 points and 11.6 rebounds per game, and led Region IX in both rebounding and field goal percentage (53%).  Sagapolu recorded 17 double-double performances this season.

Mouat said, “Kealani will give us added depth and experience inside.  She has a great nose for the ball and understands how to be successful against much bigger players.  Kealani is very savvy around the rim and uses both hands very well.  She was very successful at Northwest College, and we are excited about her future in a Skylight uniform.”

This season, Sagapolu had single-game highs of 30 points (twice) and 22 rebounds.
